One of my favorite blog posts is the Twitter round up of interesting tweets plus a little commentary on each tweet. So, here goes the first look at some of the interesting tweets I’ve seen coming out of the HIMSS 2016 conference.

This was the way the HIMSS conference keynote started out. It’s better in person, but was a pretty cool display of technology.

Interesting layout. I think that very few of our efforts have reached the 4th act of the play.

I think this is one of the big themes coming out of HIMSS16. A lot of companies and people are interested in what can be done to improve someone’s health outside of the doctor’s office or hospital. However, I’ve also seen first hand what a challenge that can be.
#HIMSS16 In so many things, a culture that supports innovation and commitment to quality beats regulation at achieving change.

I agree 100%. The challenge we face in healthcare today is that we have far more regulation than a culture of innovation.

I’m still really chewing on this one. I think the message is we should be more sympathetic of the challenges patients face. However, I think we also should be sympathetic of the challenges that healthcare providers face as well.
Of course, there are a lot more tweets on the #HIMSS16 hashtag. Those were a few that I found insightful. Let everyone know what you found interesting in the comments.
