HIMSS 2011 was my first big healthcare industry conference. The trade show is one of a kind and the largest gathering of folks interested in HealthCare IT in United States. In 2012, I attended the conference virtually and this year I’m back on the show floor. This is a coming out event for the product I have been working on at Optum – Optum Direct! Optum Direct is a secure messaging platform built on the ONC sponsored Direct Standard. If you want to know more, stop by our booth #7041 on the show floor I would love to show it in action. Additionally, our early adopter customer Santa Cruz HIE & Physicians Medical Group is showcasing this product with connectivity to Microsoft HealthVault and others in the interoperability showcase.
Having said above, among a plethora of sessions and events I’m looking forward to following events at the conference –
- Interoperability Showcase : A real-life standards play in action!
- Brian Ahier’s – Developing Trust in the Health Internet as a Platform
- ONC’s HIE Seminar
- Exhibit Show floor buzzed with words like – ICD-10, Meaningful Use, ACO, etc.
If you are at the conference or are virtual (@ #HIMSS13) please drop me a note as I would love to connect!
