That one event you know you can’t miss, that you know will overwhelm you, and for which you are mentally preparing? It’s HIMSS time again! Preparing for HIMSS is always a big deal which is why our timeline is segmented into four elements:
Friends, Partners and Clients – since almost everyone from the health community will be in Orlando it is a great opportunity to reconnect, and have valuable facetime.
Network – meeting new people is what inspires not just our sales team, but the tech team as well. This is why we always try to come in a mixed group – as these brief meetings with new faces tend to morph into constructive technical conversations and solutioning (valuable data to our dev teams to map out health tech pain points and our future r&d projects).
Talks we need to hear – being developers it is not only about continuous integration as a direction but continuous learning 😀 Listening to talks is a great way to stay on track obviously – HOWEVER, the Q&A that follows afterward is the best way to listen to current pain points and hands-on approaches the industry has taken.
Parties! – keep in mind this is a separate segment from Network 😉 Most of us have FOMO when it comes to HIMSS parties. And every year we spend a little extra time searching for interesting ones (aside from those we get invited to of course – those are extra close to our hearts). Usually, by this time we find several lists, but this year we haven’t stumbled upon any so we decided to share our own list instead.
We will update the list as HIMSS approaches, so send us hints, links, or invites and keep a lookout for daily additions!
PS For those of you who are more of a morning person or are interested in a lunch break as opposed to a happy hour, follow this HIMSS link with all the official breakfast and lunch dates.
