HIMSS Virtual Conference & Expo: Day #1

Today is day #1 of the 2009 HIMSS Virtual Conference & Expo. Here's a snapshot of some of the key educational sessions from this morning:

Opening Keynote Address: Congress’ Role in Advancing 21st Century Medicine
  • The Federal Government’s Gateway Solution to the NHIN
  • The Secret Sauce: Achieving ROI that Justifies the Initial Investment
  • Real-World CIOs Who Implemented EHR Subsidies Under Stark
  • EHR Documentation - Mobile Devices That Are Used at the Ambulatory Point-of-Care
Have you been keeping up with the Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN)? Also, how many clinicians are maximizing their productivity by using tablet PCs in the ambulatory setting? Health IT is growing rapidly, but can companies keep up with support staff and resources? How will the AHLTA (developed for the Department of Defense) model impact commercial EHRs?

I hope to write about some of these topics over the next few days as I absorb and process all this information.
