I’m busy today and tomorrow at the Connected Health Symposium in Boston. It’s been a pretty interesting event. Instead of generally regurgitating facts, they’re bringing up topics which are new and interesting. You can follow my @techguy Twitter account for more updates or the #chs11 hashtag to read all the coverage.

Here’s a few of my tweets from today to give you an idea of some interesting thoughts from the event.

I’ve been itching to attend a conference the past couple months and haven’t found one that is the right fit for my needs and interests. So, I was excited to see HITECH answers list of Fall 2011 Healthcare IT conferences.

Although, after looking at the list I was a little disappointed. I’m definitely going to MGMA in Las Vegas this year. Plus, I’m probably about 90% sure I’m going to AHIMA in Salt Lake City. I would be interested in going to CHIME, but it’s at the same time as MGMA. So, I guess that’s not really a possibility. Plus, I’m not sure how much CHIME likes bloggers at their conference.

I really would like to go to a health IT conference in Washington DC this fall. I have a ton of contacts there that I’d love to visit. It’s always nice to put a conference together with visits to smart people. I’m sure something will come up. I’ll just have to keep looking.

Are there other healthcare IT and/or EMR conferences happening this Fall that I should consider? Let me know.
