TECHNOLOGY: HIMSS press release mania

I’ve always noticed that the first day of HIMSS is the biggest each year for press releases in health care IT. But this year I thought that I’d actually go and cull all of them. So here is all those that appeared before 12 noon EST on Monday. There are quite a few (over 75), and it indicates that, vaporware or not, something is going on in this industry.

Take a moment to peruse the list–obviously I don’t expect you to read them all, but you’ll get a sense of what the IT sector of the health care industry is considering news.  And that includes wireless, EMR and patient records, security issues, and medication safety systems.
