One week from today, my FierceMarkets colleagues and I will be immersed in the zoo that is the annual HIMSS conference. Count on FierceHealthIT, FierceMobileHealthcare and FierceEMR to bring you all the highlights of the biggest health IT gathering of the year, direct from Atlanta.
And one week from today, FierceMobileHealthcare is joining with sister publication FierceWireless at HIMSS10 to invite you to "Creating a Successful mHealth Initiative," an exclusive executive breakfast sponsored by Meru Networks, March 2 from 7 to 8:15 a.m. at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. FierceWireless Editor-in-Chief Sue Marek will sit down with top healthcare and telecom industry executives to discuss the latest developments in mobile healthcare.
Our guest speakers include: Geoffrey Brown, senior VP and CIO of Inova Health System, Falls Church, Va.; Deborah Gash, VP & CIO of Saint Luke's Health System, Kansas City, Mo.; Chris Gray, industry solutions manager for healthcare at wireless carrier Sprint Nextel; and Ram Appalaraju, senior VP for marketing at Meru Networks.
Marek will lead the panel in a discussion of key issues in mobile healthcare, including the pros and cons of incorporating mobile into the healthcare industry, ways to overcome some of the challenges and the lessons learned from early adopters of m-health. The unique format of this event will provide attendees with a chance to hear what top industry executives really have to say in an uncensored environment. If you're going to HIMSS, you won't find a better opportunity to get up close and personal with so many leaders in the hottest, most innovative segment of health IT today.
The registration fee includes a full breakfast and transportation back to the Georgia World Congress Center.
I hope to meet many of our loyal readers there. - Neil
