HIMSS17 Schedule, Meetups & Themes

Navigating the HIMSS annual conference is a challenge. This year, I’ve booked almost all of my time in advance—from dawn to way beyond sundown. I’ll wear comfortable walking shoes, since I’ll likely be speed-walking from one meeting to another across the exhibit hall in near constant motion for 3 days. Here are a few places you can catch me during the conference:

Monday, Feb 20:

11 - 11:45 am Meet the Social Media Ambassadors, HIMSS Spot Lobby C

evening           HIStalkapalooza

Tuesday, Feb 21

11 - 11:45 am HealthITChicks meetup, HIMSS Spot Lobby C

 4 -  5 pm        New England HIMSS Social Event at Lenovo Booth 6170

 6 - 8 pm         New Media Meetup, Cuba Libre Restaurant (will be late arrival!)

Wednesday, Feb 22

11 - 11:30 am  Social Media Ambassador Debates, HIMSS Media booth 2123

                        (Thrilled to be paired with Dr. Rasu Shrestha, Chief Innovation Officer at UPMC, to debate/have discussion on physician engagement with technology)

  2:30 pm         Facebook Live intereview at Conduent Health booth 951     

  5:00 pm         The Walking Gallery meetup, sponsored by Conduent Health
