I think that Jim Hollis captured part of my experience at HIMSS14 really well:

Indeed! I’m so busy at HIMSS with meeting and talking with people that I have little time to tweet. I just do a little in the evening when I catch up and might send out a few tweets here or there. With that said, the #HIMSS14 hashtag has been hopping. Here are a few of the interesting tweets I found during day 1 of HIMSS.


I had another doctor tell me almost exactly the same thing today. It was her first time at HIMSS and it was interesting to have her describe the different in what she saw and heard at HIMSS and the realities she faced back at work.


Definitely interesting to see the packed room at HIMSS. I think that everyone is trying to figure out how analytics will influence outcomes, because no one knows how to do that yet. I wonder if the session did anything to improve on people’s understanding. My guess is it probably didn’t do much for those that attended.


This is a little self serving since it was from the session I did today with Shahid Shah and Cari Mclean on Social Media and Influencing. People had kind things to say about the event, so hopefully those that attended got value.


I just love these kind of pictures. Sorry you can’t blow it up bigger, but it covers most of the topics you’d expect to see.


I didn’t see this in person, but it looks pretty killer. I wonder what software they use to control them all. Or maybe they’re not connected to any specific software to coordinate them. Cool look though.

Also, it’s not a tweet, but check out this video that CDW launched at HIMSS (What Does the Doc Say?):
