2019 Health IT Year in Review – #HITsm Chat Topic

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 12/13 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by John Lynn (@techguy) on the topic “2019 Health IT Year in Review”.

2019 has been an exciting year for healthcare IT. We’ve seen the explosion of efforts by big tech companies and other corporations into healthcare. Consolidation has happened all over the industry whether it’s health IT companies getting acquired or merged or hospitals and health systems buying each other up.

Healthcare analytics and AI have both been exploding and it’s started a discussion around how much health data sharing is ok and when and how should it be done. 2019 was a challenging year for healthcare cybersecurity. Plus, burnout is being talked about from a physician, nurse, administrator and even patient perspective.

Join us for this week’s #HITsm chat where we’ll dive into what’s happened with health IT in 2019. Share what you learned, what got you excited and who influenced you for good in 2019.
