The Friday Five – This Just In at HIMSS17
This Just In host, Justin Barnes and HIMSS will be partnering once again this year to broadcast live from the HIMSS17 Annual Conference in Orlando. Justin will interview more than forty guests during the conference. This week’s Friday Five lists six former This Just In guests who Justin will chat with again live from HIMSS17. Healthcare Now Radio will be airing the HIMSS17 show live so be sure to tune in starting Feb. 20 at 1 p.m.
Justin interviewed Jitin Asnaani (@Jitin) from CommonWell Health Alliance (@CommonWell) in November of 2015. Justin and Jitin discussed interoperability strategy and opportunity. Asnaani’s diverse work history includes product innovation and interoperability at athenahealth, technical standards development at the Office of National Coordinator (ONC), product management at a health IT startup and strategy consulting at Deloitte.
Jennifer Dennard (@JennDennard), the Digital Diva from HIStalk and founder of #HealthITchicks, is one of Justin’s most recent guests but they go way back. Justin likes to interview Jennifer prior to The HIMSS Annual Conferences. He spoke with Jennifer prior to HIMSS15 and also again this year when they discussed healthcare trends as well as a #HIMSS17 preview.
Justin enjoys chatting with guest Greg Fulton (@glfulton), so much so that he has had him on the show twice! Greg currently holds the position of Industry & Public Policy Lead for Philips Wellcentive (@Wellcentive). The two met in January of 2016 and then almost an exact year later in January of 2017, each time discussing government affairs and healthcare policy.
Justin first met famed entrepreneur Ivo Nelson (@IvoNelson) at the April 2015 HIMSS Annual Conference in Chicago. The following July, Justin had the opportunity to sit down with Nelson and get to know him better. Nelson is currently Chairman and CEO of Next Wave Health (@NextWaveConnect), an investment firm that works with start-ups and early stage companies that need more than money and will speak with Justin once again this year at HIMSS.
Marianne Yeager, CEO and Executive Director at The Sequoia Project (@sequoiaproject), also appeared on Justin’s show two times to discuss interoperability strategies and best practices, as well as The Sequoia Project’s new patient matching white paper. The Sequoia Project, formerly Healtheway, is a non-profit public-private collaborative advancing secure, trusted and interoperable health information exchange nationwide.
Bonus Guest: Baha Zeiden
Baha Zeidan, Co-founder and CEO of Azalea Health (@azaleahealth), was a guest on Justin’s show in July 2015 during which they discussed connecting the clinical side with the financial side of your practice. Baha Zeidan is the leading force behind new technology development and is responsible for driving the strategic direction for Azalea Health. Azalea Health, a provider of world-class, interoperable healthcare solutions and Revenue Cycle Performance services.
