We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 2/23 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by the #HIMSS18 Social Media Ambassadors. Appropriately so, we’ll be talking about the upcoming HIMSS 2018 annual conference.
While HIMSS18 is an exciting chance to bring the various communities within health IT together in one place, the sheer volume of conference offerings, social media activity, and attendees can quickly make the experience exhausting. Social media, if navigated thoughtfully, can make this experience even more enriching – whether you are joining your colleagues in Las Vegas or following along from home.
That’s why the #HITsm and #HIMSS18 Twitter communities will be coming together to discuss:
- Market and technology trends to be on the lookout for via social media and from the conference itself
- Tips & best practices to effectively manage your (social media) conference experience
- Networking opportunities and how to best connect with colleagues onsite and via social media
The HIMSS Social Media Ambassadors will be in attendance for this chat to help share some of their social media savvy and conference expertise to guide you in your planning. The topics we will cover include:
T1: What #HIMSS18 conversations would signal positive trajectory for IT closing gaps in health(care) disparities? #HITsm
T2: With so much happening at #HIMSS18, what tips do you have to stay on top of relevant conversations and announcements to come out of the conference? #HITsm
T3: What emerging technologies (some of which will highlighted at #HIMSS18) give you hope for making positive change in health and care delivery? #HITsm
T4: If you were to launch a social media campaign at HIMSS18 to unearth challenges or highlight successes for health IT, what would it be and why? #HITsm
T5: What are the biggest pitfalls #HIMSS18 exhibitors succumb to when driving booth engagement? What advice do you have for them? #HITsm
T6: Who are you looking to meet at #HIMSS18 or connect with via social media and why? #HITsm
