#HCLDR and #HITsm Chats, Social Media Ambassadors Set Stage for #HIMSS19

The HIMSS19 Global Conference & Exhibition serves as an industry opportunity to gauge both where the industry is and where it is headed as it enters a new year. Given the size of the spectacle about to take place in a few short weeks, it can be easy to get overwhelmed with the flurry of learning and takeaways shared both in person and on social networks.

This year, the HIMSS Social Media Ambassadors have compiled a series of questions that will explore challenges and opportunities that today’s and tomorrow’s leaders in health information and technology should keep top-of-mind going in to HIMSS19 and beyond as they cover new ground in health innovation and quality care improvements. Join the HIMSS Ambassadors and the #HCLDR community to unpack these topics on Feb.5.

Just days before the conference on Feb. 8, the HIMSS Social Media Ambassadors and the #HITsm community will share best practices and offer guidance on how to make these leadership opportunities actionable using social and digital media. In line with their mission, the Ambassadors and the health IT social media community will lay groundwork for how they can contribute to collective innovation efforts with great content, social networking and digital savvy.

Share your voice. Get involved. Connect with other leaders.
