We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 8/3 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@techguy) from @HealthcareScene on the topic of “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words“.
We’ve all heard the common idiom that a picture is worth a thousand words. No doubt we’ve all had experiences like this. I first realized the power of this when I heard tech startup founder, Kevin Rose, talk about how a picture in just a few seconds can convey a world of meaning and even emotion. There’s no doubt that the right picture can send a powerful message.
This was also illustrated to me recently when as a random introduction for an #HITsm chat a few weeks ago, I suggested people share some images with the community. It was fascinating to see the images people shared and how we got to see a new side of someone in the community that we wouldn’t have known otherwise.
With that in mind, I decided that it would be fun to have a full #HITsm chat devoted to sharing images. As you’ll see, some of the questions focus on images that describe the impact of healthcare and health IT and other images are about those of us in the #HITsm community getting to know each other better.
This illustrates the real goal I have for the #HITsm community. Inspiring each other and creating deeper connections with those in the community.
So, without further ado, here are the various types of images we’ll be asking you to share on this week’s #HITsm chat.
Topics for this week’s #HITsm Chat:
Introduction: Take a selfie of you right now and share it. Don’t be shy or afraid. Just share! #nojudgment #HITsm
