2019 New Years Predictions – #HITsm Chat Topic

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 1/4 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@techguy) on the topic of “2019 New Years Predictions”.

Happy New Year to everyone in the #HITsm community. There’s something really amazing about the start of a new year. It’s a great demarkation point to be able to look at what happened in the past year and to look forward to 2019.

We’ll be doing just that in this week’s #HITsm chat. We’ll take a minute to look back at 2018 and what happened in healthcare IT in 2018. Then, we’ll all share our healthcare IT predictions for 2019. Should be fun to see what people thought was important in 2018 and also what we should be watching for in 2019.
