HIMSS impressions

HIMSS is like a 4 day party with interesting conversations, meetings that I always miss (sorry RelayHealth & Ingenix—I owe ya both!), and usually a travel complication. This time I got there smoothly but missed my plane out while chatting with Mitch Work at the next door gate. I was going to be spending the night in Dallas but I got lucky and the next plane to DFW arrived early enough that I could rush to the SFO flight and make it home. Great to see my wife for the first time in two weeks!

I have about 10 longish interviews that will go up when the video gremlins give up, but here are a few impressions.

Busiest booth?: I think Cisco wins. Maybe it was HealthPresence, maybe the magician—but it was always packed.

A little HIMSS housekeeping

Today till Weds I’ll be at HIMSS in Atlanta. You can see me at the Bloggers panel at 3pm Monday, or more importantly at the talk Jane Sarasohn-Kahn & I are giving on Health 2.0 & Participatory Medicine at 1pm on Tuesday in Georgia Ballroom 1.

I’ll also be wondering around with the trusty flipcam, so expect to see a few schedules and not so scheduled interviews up on THCB too. And you can always follow my twitter feed http://twitter.com/boltyboy If you want to meet me, best bet is to DM or follow my social schedule here although with Jetlag waking me up at 4am not sure how long I’ll last tonight!

Interspersed in all of that tech stuff, THCB will roll on as usual. I’ll let you know in 3 days time if the tech sector in health care has made more progress since last year than their political cousins!
