The good people over at Search Health IT have put together a calendar of Healthcare IT related conferences happening in 2012. Just going through the list is a bit overwhelming and I’m sure they haven’t gotten each and every healthcare IT conference out there. I think they don’t have MGMA on there and the NYeC conference, Digital Health Summit, that I attended last year. Maybe I’m partially overwhelmed because I’m still in the post-HIMSS recovery cycle, but looking at the list it’s pretty clear health IT is in vogue.

I honestly don’t have any conferences firmly placed on my agenda for 2012. I’d like to hit the AHIMA conference and MGMA conference again. I really enjoyed both of those in 2011. I loved Connected Health Symposium, Digital Health Summit, and the mHealth Summit last year. I just know I don’t want to travel as much this year as last year. So, I’m going to have to be more selective.

So, there you have it. I have a big undecided on which healthcare IT conferences to attend in the rest of 2012. Which conferences will you be attending? Which conferences do you think I should attend? With so many choices, I’m going to have to be much more selective and find new ways to differentiate which conferences I attend. I was spoiled this past year having HIMSS and MGMA in the beautiful Las Vegas.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on conferences.
