Back From HIMSS 2016 – Register for the Southwest HealthIMPACT Forum

HIMSSVegasIt was a long and crazy week. My feet still hurt and my head is still spinning from information overload. I am excited to dig into my notes over the next three weeks with HealthIMPACT Chair, Shahid Shah and tease out the major themes and take-aways to ensure that the Southwest HealthIMPACT Forum on March 24th gives you a clear path forward in today’s changing healthcare environment.

We have a few seats left for senior Health IT executives at the HealthIMPACT Forum on March 24th and I don’t want you to miss out on this great opportunity to strategize with your peers.  At the HealthIMPACT Forum we challenge all participants to think differently.  Speakers will focus on what is working to promote interoperabilty and data sharing, improve provider and patient engagement and enable population health management.  We avoid overly hyped technologies and focus on practical solutions that are making a difference in hospitals and communities around the country today.

If you would like to join us, please let me know and I would be happy register you as my guest or go online to register using the registration code HealthIMPACTVIP to secure your complimentary pass.
