#HIMSS14 Twitter Roundup – Take 2

We’re back again with some interesting tweets that I found from today’s #HIMSS14 Twitter stream.


Little summaries like this is why I love Twitter and why you can enjoy #HIMSS14 even if you don’t attend. I’m not sure I agree with the idea of a common EHR, but all the various EHR software need to exchange data.


There’s certainly a balance with the data. I’m honestly not sure if structured or unstructured will win out.


I like what Stoltenberg is doing as well. Although, I’ll be even more interested in their answers to the questions they receive.


We do have more knowledge in healthcare than ever before. Although, I think we’re still just at the brink of the information we will have in healthcare. We do need to start now to make sure we find the best ways to appropriately filter the information so that only the relevant information is shown in the right context.


The best part of HIMSS is the people. Especially when you dig in and learn the true realities. Most have really good intentions and goals.


One of the really beautiful parts of social media. Meeting people you feel like you know because you’ve engaged with them on social media.


Thanks Mandi for this amazing picture of the New Media Meetup. The place was hoping and so many people told me so many kind things about the event. I’m glad that so many people enjoy the event as much as I do. Thanks to Stericycle Communication Solutions for making the event go off so well. An enormous thanks to @tammylinntran and @mandibpro for helping me out at the check in. They are both beautiful people inside and out.

    So true. If the issue in real estate is “Location, location, location” the issue in modern medicine/healthcare/analytics is “Filter, Filter, Filter.”

    We are writing a vaccine information managment program, and I have to know HOW, WHY, WHEN and WHAT nurses think when dealing with vaccine/immunization/patients in order to FORCE the program to be useful…

    and THAT’S THE HARD WORK!!!

    And I’m working with a 6-sigma project manager before it goes to programing. I bet if some of the EMR/EHR program had done this BEFORE programming, we would be seeing different results.

  • Sue Ann,
    I look forward to hearing updates about your program.

    Dr. Nick,
    Thank you sir! I’m really glad to hear you enjoyed it. We’ll find a time to catch again at a future event.
