An active group of Tweeters took part in Healthcare Informatics' third tweet chat this week, which focused on the events of HIMSS15.
The annual conference of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), held at McCormick Place in Chicago, was as eventful as ever. Thanks to some recent policy changes from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a repeal of the Sustainable Growth Rate, and the incoming push of population health management by healthcare organizations, there was plenty to talk about. The event also featured some notable speeches and big vendor news.
Tweet chatters discussed all this and more. Below is a recap of the chat. HCI is planning on hosting more tweet chats in 2015. If you have any ideas, please let us know by following @HCInformatics or writing a comment below.
