As I wrote about in my post about the Digital Health Conference in NYC post on EMR and HIPAA, I’ll be attending the conference again this year. In that post I also offered a 20% registration discount for those who want to attend. If you’re planning to attend, you’ll want to register today or tomorrow since early bird pricing for the event ends on 9/20/13.

I’m particularly excited to hear George Halverson, CEO of Kaiser speak at the event. I’ve never heard him in person and there’s little argument that Kaiser has done some things that no one else in healthcare has done. This is particularly true in the healthcare IT space. I just hope it goes beyond just telling us the same superlatives we’ve already heard about Kaiser and health IT (ie. the mass adoption of the portal by their patients).

Of course, I’m also most excited to network with the people who attend the event. The Digital Health Conference is a unique opportunity because there is a sprinkling of the usual health IT conference crowd together with a lot of local providers and healthcare leaders. Not that I’m against the great discussions I have with the usual health IT conference crowd, but it’s nice to get a number of new perspectives as well.

I also won’t be surprised if we put together another tweetup at the event. Last year’s tweetup was done in the pouring rain, but was really enjoyable. Hopefully local NYC resident @healthcarewen puts one together again.
