Top ‘Things’ HIMSS Conference Attendees Expect to Obtain with Sources and Tips for Getting Them

Top ‘Things’ HIMSS Conference Attendees Expect to Obtain with Sources and Tips for Getting Them
On last Friday’s #HITsm tweet chat, over 100 participants shared hundreds of ideas, tip and thoughts  for “Maximizing  your #HIMSS17 Experience – Whether AttendingPhysically or Virtually.”  In a previous post, I shared the Stand Out Topics, Technologies, Presentations & Exhibitors chat participants expect to find at the HIMSS conference.

In this second post I’ll share tweets from two topics:

Topic #2: What are the 2 or 3 top things you hope to leave #HIMSS17 with and how will you use them to create value after the event?


@thedocsmitty
I won't be there so I'm hopefully you leave with lots of great tweets on your accounts  
@davisjamie77
Also excited about some new perspective into use of #HIT for #Medicaid populations. Foresee lots of potential in this area!
@wareflo
What I look for at #HIMSS17 & take away with me, is hope & optimism that workflow-oblivious HIT has finally turned workflow corner 
@rasushrestha
It's going to be critical to 1. Question the status quo 2. Be ready to call bulls**t (hype) 3. be willing to UN-learn

Care Coordination and Patient Experience
@sarahbennight
I'd like learn more about care coordination, and some advanced ways tech is paving the way for value based care  
@sarahbennight
Re: Value: I will use that info to help my family with coordinating multiple care concerns for a cohesive health journey  
@jsabbah
#HIMSS17 goals: Ways to better doctor-patient relationship & partner w/ my providers for my care. Time to empower the patients!  
@gnayyar
Want 2C proven solutions from consumer applied to #healthtech. Enable Dr. Mom, already! It's what she expects & needs.   
@gratefull080504
Determine the state of #patientengagement is it moving forward, stable or regressing  

Meeting People & Taking Pictures to Prove It!
@juliewmaas
#HIMSS17 wish list: newest #HITsm crew photo (it grows every year!) 
@techguy
#HIMSS17 is all about relationships to me. I hope to leave with dozens of new relationships and dozens of deeper ones.  
@davisjamie77
Lots of great new contacts - the best part of #HIMSS17 is meeting new people (and growing your #HIT heroes list!)
@juliewmaas
#HIMSS17 wish list: selfie with @techguy (aspirational)
@shimcode
Information & contacts from a short list of companies w/ products & services related to my areas of interest. 
@michaelgaspar
I would call #HIMSS17 a win if I get a hug from @boltyboy. :)
@serrahl
New partnerships and friendships with people like me who are crazy in love with #helpingpeople, #healthcare, & #HIT!!  
@glhc_hie
I look forward to discovering new ways to bring clarity to communicating the value if #HIT & #HIE for the #TripleAim   
@shimcode
A short list of firms that I (or my clients) might be able to emulate in some way and/or possibly establish a relationship with.  
@shimcode
Insight into firms I consider to be competitors of clients I'm doing projects for and for my own professional curiosity.  

Blockchain Again!
@drstclaire
Will #Blockchain defy Gartner’s hype cycle. Why? help to understand the applications and impact (disintermediation
@juliewmaas
#HIMSS17 wish list: nail for #Blockchain hammer  
@resultant
(1) Stories from CIOs/other HC exec about what’s really happening (beyond hype) <— use to shape @intrepidHealthC convo for 2017

Topic #3: What are your favorite sources & tips for getting the most out of your physical or virtual attendance at the #HIMSS17 Conference? 

@juliewmaas
Favorite source for getting most out of #HIMSS17 – Twitter, of course, plus on the floor of interop showcase!  
@shimcode
Tip: Check out smaller firms and first time #HIMSS17 exhibitors w/ tables/booths around periphery – off the beaten path.  
@shimcode
Plus, they are usually located close to the bathrooms, exits, and food setups!   
@davisjamie77
YES! This is my favorite area to start in the exhibit hall! Always amazed that there aren't more people exploring there! 
@shimcode
#HIMSS17 Tip I follow: Plan 75% of my schedule & stick with it to the best of my ability. 25% wandering for serendipity.  
@gratefull080504
I will be using #periscope for my session at #himss17 
@cascadia
#HIMSS17 is like a Doc visit - real growth takes place after when you apply knowledge - use mobile app to connect  
@advizehealth
Advize will be making a few vlogs on #HIMSS17 happenings, and posting them on various social media channels.  

Meeting People…
@healthcora
Never stop meeting people. Waiting in line for lunch? Chat. Don't just observe exhibitors - engage! Make friends before sessions  
@boltyboy
Don't worry. It's official that this  tweetchat group will make health care great again at #himms17 
@gratefull080504
I do not have any tips I am interested in all things that are authentically #patientengagement especially for #kidneydisease  
@cascadia
Over 40,000 people at #himss17 enjoy your selfies but meet new people outside of our Twibe - talk to #HX360 innovators  

…Like These People
@davisjamie77
Can't go wrong by keeping up w/ @healthcarescene, @ehrandhit & socmed pros like @techguy @MandiBPro @ShimCode @EMRAnswers  
@advizehealth
@HealthcareScene always provides a wealth of information! @HealthITNews and @MandiBPro are always beneficial follows.  
@glhc_hie
I thought @MMaxwellStroud's Blog piece was spot on!

Old Standby Tips
@drstclaire
Comfy shoes. Remember to network; pick a theme to help you choose from all the sessions. Sources for fun tips! – @gnayyar 
@sarahbennight
TIP- bring a portable phone charger....or several phones :)  
@jsabbah
Some other general tips: Make sure to pack spare battery power and comfy shoes are a MUST. Extension cord & MiFi are a huge plus.  

Virtual Attendees
@jeremycoleman
I'll be in the booth virtually the entire time so I'm just hoping for good conversations.  
@michaelgaspar
For both physical and virtual attendance connecting on segmented conversations helps manage noise  
@sarahbennight
#2 Follow your HIMSS SMA's for the latest. And me....because I'm practically as cool as they are #HIMSS17
@matt_r_fisher
If remote, can also add benefit by linking to materials that bolster the convo. Allows meaningful contribution. 
@shimcode
Accounts that don’t flood my #HIMSS17 stream w/ tweets full of vendor-speak and “me-too’ information are favs.  

Some Reference Info
@hitconfguy
No need to re-invent the wheel. What made sense in previous conferences makes sense now. See here.  
@healthcora
Don't forget about the #HIMSS17 Hashtag Guide   
@jsabbah
The #HIMSS17 Survival Guide is a great resource. Also, download the app & grab a pocket guide.  
@jsabbah
The @HealthITNews team is churning out great content. Keep up w/ all things #HIMSS17 by bookmarking this page
