What happens when hundreds of people have reached out to you leading up to the HIMSS annual conference and other trade shows and then they get cancelled? What do you do when hundreds of health IT companies are sending you the amazing work they’re doing for their customers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic? Do you throw in the towel and call it a day or do you go all-in?
It probably doesn’t come as any surprise to regular readers that here at Healthcare IT Today, we’re going all-in on health IT (and not just because I live in Vegas). At our core, we believe that technology applied in the right way will improve healthcare. We work with and have written about thousands of amazing organizations that are making an impact on healthcare and improving the lives of patients, doctors, nurses, and everyone in between. Helping these organizations tell their stories is what we love to do.
This is why we’re excited to announce a new initiative called the Health IT 100 in 100.
That’s right. Over 100 days we’re going to be doing 100 interviews with health IT company leaders, product experts, industry thought leaders, and where available (and appropriate), end users from provider organizations. As we all navigate this “new normal” during the coronavirus pandemic, we want to make sure we’re sharing the latest insights, perspectives, and tools to help ensure you and your healthcare organization are working as efficiently as possible with the latest information.
If you work in health IT and think you or your organization should be included in the Health IT 100 in 100, we created a special online form for you to participate. We’ll be combing through these submissions for the best stories, insights, perspectives, and tools to share with the Healthcare IT Today community. In some cases, we’ll do a full video interview, in others, an email interview, or we may include a quote in an article that features multiple perspectives.
We look forward to sharing what’s happening in health IT and supporting those companies and organizations who are spending long hours, late nights, and weekends working hard to ensure that technology has a positive impact on healthcare.
Thanks to all of you out there doing good and making healthcare better. We appreciate your work and hope we can amplify the best of health IT.
