Podcast: Making the Most of Your HIMSS Experience

Tom Castles
FEBRUARY 08, 2019


In healthcare, a successful digital transformation depends on informed strategies, diverse connections and powerful tools. Fortunately, all three can be found at HIMSS, the industry’s most prominent annual live meeting.

With more than 44,000 minds roaming its corridors and roughly 1,400 companies exhibiting their latest advancements, odds are that the solution to your most pressing healthcare headache – no matter how niche it might be – is lying in wait at HIMSS.

At the same time, finding yourself suddenly surrounded by 44,000 minds and 1,400 companies can be pretty stressful. Who’s selling me my next big win versus my next big loss? Who’s got my best interest at heart and who’s only thinking about themselves? Questions abound and answers are unique to each attendee.

So, it’s important that everyone in attendance define their goals beforehand. But don’t take it from us – editors Tom Castles and Jack Murtha are only attending their second HIMSS conference this year. Instead, take it from Geeta Nayyar, M.D. and Janae Sharp. These two HIMSS social media ambassadors and Healthcare Analytics News advisory board members have been to more HIMSS conferences than they can count, and they join us on this week’s episode of Data Book to talk about survival tips at the industry-leading event.

We also pull in a valuable webinar segment with Denise Hines, DHA, PMP, who currently serves as chief Americas officer at HIMSS and brings years of insights to the table.

There’s something for everyone in this week’s podcast. Whether you’ve never even heard of HIMSS, or this is your first time attending, and even if you thought you knew absolutely everything about the big show, we’re sure you’ll learn a thing or two.  

So sit back and enjoy. And, if you plan on heading down to Orlando this year, we hope to see you there!

Get all the HIMSS updates you need to stay ahead.
