Interoperability: The Holy Grail of Healthcare – The Conference that you need to be at

It’s not too late to register for the CSO HIMSS Fall Conference “Interoperability: The Holy Grail of Healthcare” on October 13th at the Savannah Center in West Chester, OH.

It’s a day filled with awesome networking, education, community engagement and interesting sessions that pulls in individuals from different provider organizations around the region. Don’t forget the prizes at the end of the day that many people have won from both CSO HIMSS and the 24 sponsors we have this year supporting our community.

Every year, we have interesting and thought provoking speakers that give you a glimpse of what providers do in the 21st century healthcare ecosystem. We have been fortunate that our community has been engaged and enthusiastic when it comes to participation at our events. I look forward to seeing many of you there to connect and reconnect. Check out the agenda at http://wp.me/p1XSxy-ks and register now. The keynotes are awesome; from Lisa Esch Chief Population Health Innovation Officer from DXC, formerly CSC flying in from Colorado and Stew Wolfe Associate Principal Cisco Global Security from Cisco, coming in from Canada to present to our community. See you there to grab the world of healthcare IT and take it to the next level!

HIMSS16 – One week to go!

Las VegasI know many folks are eagerly looking forward to next week in Vegas and HIMSS16. I’m looking forward to meeting my “Conference Buddies” those folks we see once a year at the Big Show! I’ll be looking forward to the keynotes from  Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health & Human Services & Michael Dell, Founder of Dell, Inc next Monday the 29th at the Palazzo Ballroom at the Venetian Hotel.

I try and encourage a balanced approach; educational sessions in the morning, lunch and then exhibit hall and vendors in the afternoons. This gives me the opportunity to experience a full conference experience along with some of my friends from the CSO HIMSS chapter and other chapters I’m connected with. Areas focused on project management in the areas of interoperability solutions (of course focused on CCD’s) analytics and datawarehousing, tele- health (after my recent visit to Cisco in Bangalore), Clinically Integrated Networks and revenue cycle optimization post ICD-10 are at the top of my agenda of mandatory sessions to attend. The Interoperability Showcase is my favorite area of the exhibit hall area to visit after my HIMSS15 experience. Best part of the entire conference in my humble opinion. Don’t miss it. You’ll be glad you saw it when you did. I’ve been pushing for it to go on the road to each state. I’m rarely a petition type of guy, but I’ll sign a petition for an “Interoperability Road Show” if I have to. It’s basically the essence of this blog entirely so “hell ya!” I’ll sign it.

If you haven’t already, register for the CSO HIMSS Luncheon on Tuesday March 1st. I’ll be there as well as many of our CSO HIMSS Board and our esteemed Chapter President, Scott Mash.

We can’t end without obviously the perfunctory “Viva Las Vegas!”

See you on the flip side folks!

HIMSS 16 and CSO HIMSS Luncheon

HIMSS 16 is 3 weeks away and it’s going to be an exciting time for many as Peyton Manning, fresh off his Super Bowl win will be the keynote speaker, albeit Friday the 4th of March.

In addition, I’ll be there and hopefully we’ll get a chance to meet either at the HIMSS reception that first evening or at the CSO HIMSS Annual Luncheon that we have traditionally hosted at the national conference. Please do go to the CSO HIMSS site to register as there aren’t many seats available for the luncheon this year. Come by and meet the CSO HIMSS Board members who are in attendance. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
