HIMSS 2010 – day one

At the opening reception, Sunday night, I finally met Martin Pellinat CEO of VisionTree, with whom I have had many conversations as I participate in the Clinical Groupware Collaborative (CGC).

Similarly on the first day, I met the team from Resilient Networks, another CGC member company.

Needless to say networking opportunities abound at HIMSS.

Over 900 companies and 30 000 people at one convention took me a few hours to comprehend and absorb. I attended a very informative session on Telehealth and mobile devices; followed by session presented by Kaiser Permanente on patient portals (or tethered PHRs).

The exhibit hall is enormous thus I only managed to visit one quarter of the companies present.

The evening ended with dinner and a concert by Grammy award winner Colbie Caillat at the Georgia aquarium, courtesy of MEDecision.
