Innovative New Healthcare Apps – #HITsm Chat Topic

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 7/19 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Elena Ivanova (@lenisocial) from @Intersystems on the topic “Innovative New Healthcare Apps”.

Sometimes, it seems like the healthcare industry is not moving fast enough, and other times it seems to be moving at the speed of light. With the wave of innovative healthcare apps being developed daily, it may seem hard to keep up.

How are organizations stepping up to the plate? And how is this continuous innovation revolutionizing the healthcare ecosystem and communication as we know it?

In this week’s #HITsm chat, we’ll discuss the innovative new apps that are coming to healthcare and barriers to app innovation. Here are the topics that will serve as the framework for the tweetchat. We hope you’ll join us.

Topics for this week’s #HITsm Chat:

T1: What are some examples of new innovative healthcare apps you’ve recently discovered? What made them stand out? #HITsm

T2: What role do apps play in healthcare? Do you see them as propelling healthcare forward, or causing more clutter? #HITsm

T3: What are some factors to consider when developing an innovative healthcare app? #HITsm

T4: What role does data play? HITsm

T5: What are some obstacles/barriers to entry in developing a successful healthcare app? #HITsm

Bonus: If you could develop your perfect healthcare app, what would it be? What’s on your “Wish List?”
