Today was the day to catch up with old colleagues and meet a few new ones on the massive floor of the #HIMSS14 exhibit hall in Orlando. Here are a few highlights —
Paul Brient at PatientKeeper is making great traction with CPOE tools for hospitals. See my earlier podcast on their outstanding rating by KLAS.
I was impressed with Michael’s story of how his own battle with cancer led to the creation of GetWellNetwork, a patient engagement company.
Cinderella showed me the “prince pose” at the Atrilogy booth. Can you tell by these photos that I’m more comfortable with the health care exec types?
I first met Kent Dicks when he was running start-up MedApps, which was acquired by Alere and has now grown into a much broader and grander remote health monitoring offering.
Sandeep Wadhwa and I go way back to college days, when he was president of our senior class at Wesleyan. We’re getting ready for our 25th reunion and trying to decide whether it’s better to be bald or grey. Meanwhile, he’s making things happen at Noridian, a leading Medicare administrator.
Ken Tarkoff runs clinical solutions at RelayHealth, a very dynamic division of McKesson.
By health care business consultant David E. Williams, president of the Health Business Group.
