I just came upon a really interesting part of HIMSS 2010 called the HIMSS IT Venture Fair. Many readers probably don’t realize my interest in Venture Capital, entrepreneurship and investing in general. Especially when it comes to technology investments.

We’re about to enter an unprecedented time for investment in healthcare IT. There’s going to be a lot of investment, a lot of consolidation and I expect some really interesting new EMR companies who enter the market that we’ve never heard of before.
