Maybe I am just a "glass half full" person. Maybe I am just tired of all the bad business news on CNN. Either way, I thought I would put together a list of things we can be thankful for this (Healthcare IT) Thanksgiving season. Please feel free to add to the list:

  • We are not in the middle of implementing ICD-10
  • Starke IV: "The Sequel-New and Improved," has not been published
  • You are not spending the Thanksgiving weekend re-writing all your HL7 interfaces to a new standard
  • There is still so much healthcare technology being developed and implemented that makes this industry more exciting than ever!

The Health IT Summits gather 250+ healthcare leaders in cities across the U.S. to present important new insights, collaborate on ideas, and to have a little fun - Find a Summit Near You!
