It is that time of year again. Winter is in full swing, New Year’s resolutions are a thing of the past, and all anyone wants to talk about is still three weeks away… it's the pre-HIMSS rush, a feeling brought on by planning for a week-long conference that attracts nearly 40,000 health care IT leaders, and leaves little time for sleep. If you’re like us at athenahealth, you’re booking your schedule stat, filling it with all sorts of insightful presentations, networking opportunities and some New Orleans-style fun for that precious down time.
What will athenahealth be doing at this year’s annual HIMSS Conference? Promoting our ability to give health system leaders actionable network insight, and to help position organizations to thrive through change, from payment reform to Meaningful Use and ICD-10.
At athenahealth booth #7229 we’ll be showcasing our new campaign—One patient. Total clarity. Everywhere.℠—talking about our service that delivers on that vision (so stay tuned!), and demoing our suite of integrated, cloud-based services for electronic health records (EHR), practice management and care coordination.
Wait, that’s not all. Here are speaking presentations you’ll want to ‘add to your agenda’ (see HIMSSConference.org), especially if you’re a fan of cloud technology, innovation and Meaningful Use made easy:
•Monday, March 4, 11 a.m.
Jocelyn E. Piccone, COO of Wright State Physicians, an athenahealth client, presents “Lessons Learned: Meaningful Use Attestation Using Cloud-Based EHR” in New Orleans Theater B.
•Monday, March 4 at 3 p.m.
Doran Robinson, VP of health care transactions at athenahealth, presents “How the Cloud Enables Interoperability” as part of the Interoperability Showcase.
•Tuesday, March 5 at 10:30 a.m.
Jonathan Bush, athenahealth CEO, and Matt Long, Director of Innovation and Operations at Regional Health Physicians, present “Meaningful Use Can Be Easy” in a Q&A-style session as part of the Meaningful Use Experience, MU9.
Lastly, whether you’ll be at HIMSS or following from afar, we’ll be sharing all kinds of HIMSS13 information and fun via our social channels, and here on the athenahealth blog.
