The always inspiring Colin Hung has put together what he’s calling the #HIMSS15 mix tape. He basically reached out to various people on healthcare social media (including myself) asking them which songs we’d add and why. The results were quite entertaining. Here were my three submissions:

Cry – Faith Hill. Suggested by @techguy (John Lynn) “I think there are plenty of reasons to cry at HIMSS”

Just Give Me A Reason – Pink Suggested by @ehrandhit “About doctors love of healthcare”

Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice. Suggested by @ehrandhit See this fantastic blog for the reason why.

I really liked Brad’s creativity (no surprise he’s talking ICD-10):

The Final Countdown – Europe. Suggested by @Brad_Justus “For hopefully the last countdown to ICD-10!”

Who doesn’t like the shoutout to the #HITChicks:

Every Little Thing She Does is Magic – The Police. Suggested by @CyndyNayer “I’m thinking this is the background for #HITChicks wherever we are!”

I can imagine Wen and her team having a dance party to this song (would make me want to be on her team):

Everything is Awesome – Tegan and Sara ft The Lonely Island. Suggested by @HealthcareWen“Because it’s an awesome team song”

So many other good ones, so go and read them all.  However, Mel Smith Jones offers a solid description of HIMSS:

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers. Suggested by @MelSmithJones “It’s always too long of a wait until I get to see everyone. Then we put ourselves into blissful misery with all of that endless walking. Then I can’t wait until next year as soon as it is over :)”

Word on the street is that Colin is working to play the mixtape during the New Media Meetup at HIMSS15 that we host each year. Of course, a big thanks to Stericycle and their product Patient Prompt (Where Colin works) for sponsoring the New Media Meetup.
