My first interview at HIMSS is with Orlando Portale, CIO and Michael Covert, CEO of Palomar Pomerado Health in the San Diego area. They’re planning a new hospital and are working with Cisco and have put together a fun video about their new Virtual Palomar West in Second Life. They both had some really interesting things to say about how to build a large new hospital and how to plan for its use for a long, long time ahead. Here’s the interview.
(FD, Orlando and I are both on the advisory board for HIMSS Community for Connected Health, sponsored by Cisco, and I have done consulting work for Cisco in the past).
