Fall 2014 Health IT Conference Schedule

Going to my third conference in a week must mean that we’re in the heart of Fall health IT conference season. This week I’m at AHIMA. I love attending AHIMA. I think that the AHIMA conference is a bit like HIM staff in general. There this hidden gem that many people don’t recognize even though they have tremendous value. I feel the same at this conference. The HIM staff at AHIMA have some really great perspectives on what’s happening with healthcare IT in their organization. I don’t think it’s a must attend event for everyone, but it’s great for a blogger like me to get a variety of perspectives on the healthcare IT industry.

This is really just the start of the conference season for me. I always get asked by people which conferences they should attend. In fact, my breakfast meeting this morning with a new to healthcare vendor this morning had a lot of discussion about which health IT conferences they should attend. For those interested in this same question, I’ve created a page which lists the Health IT Conferences I’m attending and also a look at some of the major health IT conferences that happen every year.

As I’ve talked to people, I’ve realized there are a few other events that I need to add to the list. I like to joke with people that if I wanted to I could attend a different health IT event every day of the week. Although, that’s not really much of a joke since it’s basically true.

What events do you attend? Which ones do you find most valuable?

From a hospital IT perspective, the CHIME Fall Forum is the tops for me. The Digital Health Conference is good and hospital CFO’s should hit the Craneware Summit. Then, of course, HIMSS is a great place for hospital IT people, but that’s not until April 2015.

I’m looking forward to all these conferences. They provide me a lot of perspective which I use in all of my blog posts. If you’re going to be at any of the events, let me know. I always love to meet readers in person.
