The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Annual Conference & Exhibition, i.e. HIMSS12, started today in Las Vegas. Actually a lot of pre-conference stuff started today. I didnâ€™t do much besides get situated, print my registration badge, figure out where everything was, visit the HIMSS bookstore and Social Media Pavilion, etc.
The real action for me will start tomorrow with the opening keynote delivered by Biz Stone, Co-founder of Twitter at 8:00 am. From there itâ€™s pretty much one session after another until the Exhibit area opens at 1:00 pm, which is always my favorite part of a conference like this. The exhibit area is a place to see whatâ€™s going on in healthcare without having to stick to a schedule. Thereâ€™s a Tweetup hosted by @HPHealthcare at 3:00 pm in the Sands Expo and Convention Center that Iâ€™m planning on attending as well. Should be a good day.
The only problem I see is the tough choices Iâ€™ll have to make on which sessions to attend; itâ€™s a pretty impressive list.
Iâ€™ll be Tweeting off and on all week using the #HIMSS12 HashtagÂ (@JFahrni).
