Stand Out Topics, Technologies, Presentations & Exhibitors at #HIMSS17

Maximizing  your #HIMSS17 Experience – Whether Attending Physically or Virtually hitsm hcldr hcsm
Over 100 participants shared hundreds of their thoughts, ideas and tips during last last Friday’s #HITsm tweet chat on “Maximizing  your #HIMSS17 Experience – Whether Attending Physically or Virtually.”  You know it’s a popular chat when the hashtag starts trending and the spammers hijack the hashtag.

This post will be the first of what I expect to be a handful of posts sharing curated insight from tweets shared by 57 of the #HITsm chat participants. If you have any additional thoughts, ideas and tips for maximizing the benefit of the yearly HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, please share there in the comments below or out on Twitter.

Topic #1: What do you think will be ‘stand out’ topic(s,) technologies, presentations & exhibitors at #HIMSS17 and why?

@glhc_hie
What will be the walk away "Buzzword" of #HIMSS17???
@michaelgaspar
Is it really just about the technology? Health IT woes have been more about culture than the tools.  

Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality & Machine Learning
@sarahbennight
Artificial Intelligence is the new Virtual Reality
@lisadbudzinski
I'm so excited about both #AI and #VR 
@rasushrestha
I'm guessing #MachineLearning and #HealthPolicy will be 2 hot topics at #HIMSS17.
@johnsharp
How about #AI?
@sarahbennight
VR was the new flashy thing last year, I think AI will start proving more useful this year and people have great concepts  
@techguy
Gotcha. I think VR will have another coming our party in 3-5 years. AI will be big this year! 
@jeremycoleman
VR with adv radiology will cause a major turf war between rad's and surgeons.  
@techguy
Totally agree with you @jeremycoleman Here's some VR for Rads that I saw at #RSNA16   

Blockchain & Security
@thedocsmitty
It seems like blockchain is poised for a breakout year...  
@glhc_hie
Anticipating LOTS of focus on #FHIR, #Blockchain, and #SDOH at #HIMSS17  
@resultant
Agree! Hope there are more #CyberSecurity solutions for providers than last year! 
@techguy
I think blockchain will piggy back cyber.  
@jeremycoleman
Blockchain will be the new FHIR, basically being a buzzword that folks don't know what to do with.  
@jsabbah
Also, if you're interested in blockchain, there's a #HIMSS17 event you may want to check out this  
Cybersecurity  - Too Bad Resources Are Spent on 'Security'
@shimcode
Cybersecurity will be a hot topic at #HIMSS17 – and in my opinion, that’s really, really sad! What a waste of resources.  
@techguy
So organizations should not invest in cybersecurity?
@mandibpro
...trying to determine whether this is sarcasm... Find it sad #cybersecurity wasn't forefront on contracts & minds w/ #EHR adoption. 
@shimcode
Not what I mean. I'm saying it's money that in an ideal world really should not have to be spent - of course they will.  
@haroldsmith3rd
Is cyber going to steal the light from blockchain magic so people are worried?  
@shimcode
Not sarcasm. IMO it's like "Y2k" - something that costs money just to stay even.  
@healthythinker
Agree #cybersecurity at #HIMSS17 will be hot spending priority based on #healthcare #CIO top concerns  #HIPAA 
@techguy
I see. I agree. It's amazing how many things would cost less if humanity were honest. 
Government, Healthcare Reform & Politics
@techguy
For presentations, I think the political ones will be strong: @michaelleavitt, @ASlavitt, @SpeakerBoehner 
@mmaxwellstroud
I am very interested in what government HC presentations will be like... who will be there. what will they say?  
@drstclaire
I'm looking forward to the ONC Town hall, Rockstars of Blockchain, and Venture+ 
@michaelgaspar
#GovHIT conversations will be widely talked about. Future of ACA, health reform.  
@healthythinker
Appointment of @RepTomPrice @HHSGov #consumerism & #ptengagement top-of-mind for me. Price loves #HSAs & #CDHP #healthcare   
@michaelgaspar
I wouldn't believe everything you read "in the media" especially these days.
@shaydawindle
How #publicsector can fight the #opioid epidemic with #healthIT See this.
@yollershollers
@potus & @realDonaldTrump using the trending #hitsm and #himss17 to market himself!!! It's a honour to help you to gain recognition sir! 
Patient Engagement
@thegr8chalupa
I think patient and employee engagement will be a hot topic, as well as the patient experience.  
@davisjamie77
Super excited about the #patientengagement models on the #himss17 session list this year! Finally the Patient voice is heard!  
@resultant
Me too! Hopefully lots of REAL #PatientEngagement stories this year!
@mmaxwellstroud
Stand out presentations this year - those including patient voices & @ASlavitt talking #Healthpolicy  
@gnayyar
Hi everyone! I think the invisible will stand out at #HIMSS17. Simple #patientengagement solutions that enhance & don't impede.  
@michaelgaspar
I'm interested to see how exhibitors make good on @MandiBPro's call to action  
@aneisinger
Yes! Patient engagement is so hot right now  
@jsabbah
Excited for @boissyad's session on patient engagement insights at the #Connect2Health event at #HIMSS17: 
@sarahbennight
I agree. It was flashy, but was it down thing everyday pts and providers can use today? It def has a future!  
Consumerism & Transparency
@shimcode
Consumerism, ‘transparency,’ and value-based care seem like they're going to be 3 hot, inter-related topics at #HIMSS17.  
@michaelgaspar
Monitoring social, the consumer conversation has been an emerging theme, per @RasuShrestha  - See here.
@mandibpro
I'll be interested to hear discussions of "#healthcare access". "Access" is rapidly becoming a buzzword I zero in on. 
MACRA – Alternative Payment Models
@techguy
I'll take AI, MACRA, and Pop Health for 200 please Alex. Exhibitors is a hard one to predict. 
@advizehealth
#MACRA continues to be a hot button issue. We've created a lot of content on the issue ourselves, but there's always more to see.  
@mandibpro
Amen. #Medicaid block grants, #MACRA alternative payment models as commercial market may adopt/adapt them. Fate of #MeaningfulUse. 
@healthythinker
#MACRA & #Medicaid block grants mean having to do >#healthcare w <$. #CFOs play impt role w #CIOs for rev cycle 
Telehealth & Telemedicine
@resultant
(1) #Telemedicine #Interoperability (talk, not sure abt progress) #PatientID (hopefully progress) #Analytics #JoinTheConversation 
@thedocsmitty
It feels like telemed had it's year last yeat but I still think there are some pratical and workflow issues to figure out  
@teladoc
Of course we think #telehealth will be a standout topic at #HIMSS17.  
@mandibpro
I'm betting #telehealth solutions will have a huge presence, given block grant challenge & closing of rural hospitals. 
Communications
@boltyboy
New technologies for #HIMSS17 will include email, cell phones, and text messaging. Maybe even video chat  
@mmaxwellstroud
My plan for #HIMSS17? Friendships, connections & a wider network. What am I going to do with it? Just change the world.  
@cascadia
Real pivot - solutions (tech, education, tools) for care outside doc/hospital/pt dyad - connect people at home to solutions  

General Miscellaneous
@greg_meyer93
I hope to see advancements from the past few years. It’s still self serve (good start), but need to move to more systemic.  
@resultant
(2) #TheWalkingGallery, #PinkSocks – they are important and growing 
@hcexecgroup
Our members have identified these as the Top 10 opportunities & challenges for 2017. Expect to learn more about them at #HIMSS17
@mandibpro
Seriously waiting to see if any vendor foregoes booth excess in favor of mobile #health clinic w/ free #diabetes screenings. 
@techguy
I like the idea of finding the invisible tech at #HIMSS17 Hard to do.  
@jsabbah
Looking forward to the #HIMSS17 Interoperability Showcase. Important focus for the industry going forward. 
@juliewmaas
“Stand out” topics expected at #HIMSS17: #FHIR, real #patientengagement, #chatbots + other conversational tech  
@cascadia
More new #HIMSS17 innovations new health tech that maximizes income for doctors and calling it #ptcentered  
@johnsharp
Not one buzz word this year - APIs, cyber, Blockchain, AI - the next generation of tech  
@mandibpro
Want meaningful connections w/ orgs interested in solving real-world #healthcare problems, not just chasing shiny objects. 
@cascadia
Hopefully #HIMSS17 has moved past #IOT stage in health tech and can focus on "connections" in tech, people & process  
@suewoods
To get new #pinksocks ;-) I lost mine :-( 
Sessions People are Looking Forward To
@shimcode
Hey Jane, I'm looking forward to your preso (on Social Determinants of Health) at #HIMSS17
@healthythinker
Tues 830 am v early for you. I'll bring you coffee if you attend dear friend #SDOH #HIMSS17  
@mmaxwellstroud
Also excited for @MelSmithJones presentation on "Four Pillars of Social Media Governance"   
@davisjamie77
Also on my #himss17 wish list: sessions that present successful integration of behavioral & physical health - w/ real data & results.  
@davisjamie77
@MMaxwellStroud's session is a sure bet even tho it's at the same time as mine & @HITNadine's! Decisions, decisions! #hitsm 
@davisjamie77
Another great one: @LHCQF1's @CindyMunnCEO's session. Great case on ED reduction thru effective data use!  
@glhc_hie
If you get the chance, come check out our preso on Behavioral Health Integration with HIE! #ShamelessPlug
