The Georgia Pavilion at HIMSS 15
Tune In at 2pm ET for MU Live! to Hear Interviews in the GA Pavilion.
The annual HIMSS Conference took place in Chicago this month and the Georgia Pavilion was represented again. It is now well known that Georgia and especially metro Atlanta have become the health IT capital of the country. The location, the economy, the cost of living, the academic centers, and the industry talent all make Georgia’s synergy attractive to start ups and established companies alike. This year I spent some time in the Georgia Pavilion at HIMSS. The Pavilion is funded by GA state’s economic development and hosts new health IT companies with booths at the show. You can find more information about the GA Department of Economic Development at www.Georgia.org.
Tune in this week for my special broadcast of MU Live! weekdays at 2pm ET and rebroadcasts at 6am, 2pm, and 10pm ET everyday for my interviews with participants in the Georgia Pavilion. I kick off the show with Atlanta’s own HIT expert and advisor, Justin Barnes. Here’s who you will hear.
