A Look Back at #HIMSS18 – #HITsm Chat Topic

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 3/16 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@techguy) from Healthcare Scene.

If you’re like me, you’ve come back from the HIMSS Annual Conference in Las Vegas and you’re experiencing what some people call the #HIMSSHaze or the #HIMSSHangover. It’s a bit of an overwhelming experience to attend a conference with 44k people and 1350 vendors. Plus, add in the lights and stimulus of Las Vegas and it’s no surprise why we all head home a little tired.

Hopefully you’re back home recovering from the event. This week’s chat we’ll do a kind of post-mortem on the event where we share our insights and experiences. What did we see? What didn’t we see? Were there any game changing announcements?

Please join us for this week’s #HITsm chat as we wrap up #HIMSS18 with the following questions:

T1: How would you describe your #HIMSS18 experience? Big Win? Bust? Meh? and why? #HITsm

T2: What topics were trending at #HIMSS18 and what does it mean for healthcare? #HITsm

T3: What did you wish you’d seen at #HIMSS18 but didn’t find it? Should HIMSS work to have it next year? #HITsm

T4: Most profound thing you heard or saw at #HIMSS18? #HITsm

T5: Share your favorite piece of content coming out of #HIMSS18 and why you found it valuable. #HITsm

Bonus: What’s next on your conference agenda for 2018 after #HIMSS18? #HITsm

Upcoming #HITsm Chat Schedule
3/23 – TBD

We look forward to learning from the #HITsm community! As always, let us know if you’d like to host a future #HITsm chat or if you know someone you think we should invite to host.
