Write in a conversational, non-technical way. If using technical language, provide an explanation in common terms.
Focus on a specific area of your topic and go deep rather than generalizing the whole topic. When discussing pain points, be actionable and solutions based. Give examples and metrics whenever possible.
If writing about HIMSS Global Health Conference, focus on a topic tied to the conference, rather than the conference itself.
If referencing a report, article, etc., please include a link to the source material within the text.
Incorporate subheads and bullets. Keep paragraphs short.
