The editors of Healthcare Informatics will be hosting their third tweet chat today, Monday April 27 at 1:30 pm. The tweet chat will be a review of all things HIMSS15.

The tweet chat will be a review of all things HIMSS15. The popular event, which involved more than 40,000 attendants and took place last week, included a number of exciting announcements and insightful keynotes, and generated discussion among the many stakeholders in the industry. When the smoke clears, what does everyone want to talk about about? Whether it's meaningful use, ICD-10, vendor announcements, accountable care, or something else, no topics will be off limit during the tweet chat.

Those who wish to ask questions to discuss HIMSS15 with the HCI editors can use the hashtag, #HCIchat and fire away. If you wish to follow along and participate, @HCInformatics@MarkHagland@GabrielSPerna and @RajivLeventhal will be essential handles to follow along with the hashtag. 

This will be the third major tweet chat for HCI. The first one was on meaningful use and the second was on accountable care.
