Answer Wiki:
Every year I look forward to seeing the new innovations that companies bring. Last years i was looking at some of the new HIE accomplishments and how private and public sectors are exchanging information. I also got to see some cool technologies such as the Surface by Microsoft. Most EHR vendors has the same features and functionality. I also got to see some of the new technologies in transcriptions. Nuance and M*modal. This year I would like to see more on mobile devices and how they can be utilized in the health-care arena. Also sitting in some of the educational sessions as they pack a great deal of information.

I always enjoy hearing about hospitals and medical groups that are leveraging social media to share examples of successes and failures in health IT.

Some of the main points of interest for will be how technology that has been embraced by other verticals — namely, cloud computing, virtualization and wireless LANs — are being used in health care. Of course, we will also be looking for updates on meaningful use, EHR implementations, ICD 10 conversions and any and all other federal mandates.

Social networking is definitely an interesting topic. Right now it seems there are more questions than answers for most industries, and health care is no exception, especially when you consider PHI and HIPAA. That’s something we’ll keep an eye on as well.

One of the key questions surrounding social media is: privacy and security. I know there will be several sessions focused around that. HIMSS has a dedicated social media center at the meeting. Hope to see you there.

We’ll be going to HIMSS. Our booth is 3674. This year we’ll be demonstrating our IP-based networked locking system for cabinets, doors and medications. There is a press release on our website about an installation at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, MD.

Can’t wait to get down to Florida. Hopefully the snow doesn’t follow us down…again.
