We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 7/13 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Jared Jeffery (@Jk_Jeffery) on the topic of “#HITsm Community Identifies Top 10 Technology Services & Products for Healthcare Stakeholders”
At the beginning of each year, almost every healthcare thought leader, vendor and media company share a list of ‘Top 10 Healthcare Predictions and Trends.’ These lists get a lot of attention but rarely are these lists ever revisited or vetted by those who work in the healthcare industry. Nor are these lists updated or checked back on later in the year.
In an effort to change this pattern and to leverage the wisdom of the #HITsm crowd, the theme of the #HITsm chat on 7/13 will be to identify the healthcare technology services and products they believe are currently important to Healthcare Stakeholders:
1. Physicians & Medical Practices
2. Hospitals & Health Systems
3. Patients, Health Plan Members, Healthcare Consumers & Caregivers
4. Health Plans & Payers
Then, the information shared during the 7/13 chat will be curated to identify the top healthcare technology services and products identified by #HITsm participants. We’ll sort and curate the information shared in the 7/13 chat and then, in the #HITsm chat on 7/20, participants will rank and share their additional, hopefully unbiased, non-commercial insight into specific challenges, issues and opportunities pertaining to each of the healthcare technology services and products shared in the 7/13 chat.
Curated Summary of #HITsm Wisdom
As a unique service for chat participants and the healthcare social sphere in general, the information shared by #HITsm chat participants in the 7/13 and 7/20 chats will be assembled into a document, supplemented with additional information and shared publicly in the weeks following the 7/20 chat.
