The Friday Five – We are Getting Ready for HIMSS20
When: March 9-13, 2020
Where: Orange County Convention Center, Orlando FL
The HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition brings together nearly 45,000 health information and technology professionals, clinicians, executives and market suppliers from around the world. Exceptional education, world-class speakers, cutting-edge products and powerful networking are hallmarks of this industry-leading conference. In this week’s Friday Five we share HIMSS20 preview episodes from some of our shows, a peak at our pop-up studios and some things our station manager is looking forward to checking out during the week.
HIMSS is closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and continues to provide regular updates. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has publicly deemed the health risk of coronavirus for the general American public to be low at this time. The health, safety and well-being of the community is the highest priority. HIMSS20 will be a handshake free meeting.
This will be my 11th year at the annual conference. For the past several years I have been most interested in the state of interoperability in healthcare data. This year will be no different. But this year might be different in there will actually be something to report on. I will be looking for the ONC final data blocking rule to be released and the start of patients having access and control of their health data. This has been over a decade promise and vision of the ONC. I will be looking to see how this will force the issue and changes to privacy laws. I will be looking to see how the EHR vendors will step up and introduce products that embrace API interfaces for patient access. And how the vendors will deliver products that we will trust with our health information. See you in Orlando!
HCNR Pop-up Studios
During the HIMSS20 Conference we will be hosting a series of Pop-Up Studios around the conference and in various exhibitor booths. At our Pop-Up Studios we will be conducting on-camera interviews with thought leaders to get their insights and take on some of the most pressing and challenging issues facing healthcare today. Be sure to check out our Pop-Up Studio schedule to find out when and where they will be. Additionally, check out our previously posted Friday Five to learn even more about our Pop-ups.

Upcoming PopHealth Week Episode
Starting on Monday, March 2nd, tune in to PopHealth Week’s HIMSS 2020 Countdown Series and hear special guest, John Moore, founder and CEO at Chilmark Research. After nearly 15 years in the manufacturing sector advising some of the largest global manufacturing companies on IT adoption and deployment strategies, John felt that the most vexing issues in this sector had been largely addressed – so he became restless and sought new opportunities with new challenges. After nearly a year of research, he chose healthcare as his next target and launched Chilmark Research in 2007. On this special episode, John will preview Chilmark’s take on HIMSS 2020 key themes, developments and priorities.
