One of the advantages of living in Las Vegas, is that there are a ton of interesting conferences that are held in Las Vegas. In fact, the next MGMA and HIMSS (after Orlando) are both going to be in Las Vegas, which is nice for me since it’s where I live.

On that note, I’ve always loved to go to the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas as well. Usually, I’m just going to check out all the new toys and technology. It’s just a fun thing to do and not necessarily that work related.

This year however, they have the Digital Health Summit that’s being held in conjunction with CES. I’m interested to see how that works. They have a ton of sponsors for the event, but not the usual list of sponsors that you might see at an event like this.

I already have one meeting set up with the Executive Director of the Continua Health Alliance. I’ve heard about this alliance a few different places and so I’m excited to learn more about what they’re doing and the progress they’ve made.

If there are other companies at CES that might be of interest to me, let me know and we can have a chance to meet in person. I’ll be sure to blog about my experience at the Digital Health Summit.
