2017 Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference


Healthcare Scene is the proud organizer of the 4th Annual Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference (HITMC). HITMC 2017 is happening April 5-7, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. This year’s conference promises to be our best conference yet!

With a full program of ~50 sessions and a wide spectrum of expert speakers, the content at the 2017 Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference will appeal to any marketing and PR professional working in healthcare B2B marketing.

Along with all of the education sessions, HITMC 2017 will be an amazing opportunity for healthcare marketers and healthcare PR professionals to network with their peers. Some of the best learnings at last year’s conference came during the unconference sessions. So, in 2017, we’re bringing those back in an even bigger way. Plus, the conference is in Vegas, so we’re going to have some fun meeting each other at 4 different networking events.

Another great part of the 2017 Healthcare IT Marketing and PR conference is the diversity of sponsors we feature. It’s always gratifying when someone in the HITMC community is able to find a conference sponsor that can solve a problem that’s vexing them. A few sponsorship slots are still available if you act quickly.

If you’re not already registered for the 2017 Healthcare IT Marketing Conference, there is less than a month left to register. We look forward to seeing many of you in Las Vegas at HITMC 2017!

Three Healthcare Scene Blogs Included in 2016’s Top 50 Health IT Blogs List

For the 4th year in a row, CDW Healthcare has created their list of the Top 50 Healthcare IT blogs. When you look through the list, you can see a number of incredible healthcare IT bloggers. What’s more extraordinary this year is that the following 3 Healthcare Scene blogs were included on their list of the top 50 blogs:

It would be a real honor to have even one blog on their list, but to have three blogs be recognized as three of the top fifty healthcare IT blogs is even more special.

We’re extremely proud of the work we do to bring great content to healthcare IT professionals, doctors, CIOs, HIM professionals, and many more. Our goal each day is to provide content that will make these people’s lives better so that they can better serve patients. That’s a challenging thing to do, but it’s something we relish.

Thank you to CDW Healthcare for the great honor. We’ll keep working hard to continue providing great healthcare IT content to those that need it most.

We’ve got a lot of exciting things planned for 2017. Maybe next year we can work to get a fourth blog on the list!

Healthcare Scene Included in List of Top Health IT Experts that HIT Execs Should Follow on Twitter

top-health-it-experts-on-twitter
Health Data Management recently published a list of healthcare IT experts on Twitter that health IT executives should follow on Twitter. Here’s the summary Fred Bazzoli offered for the list:

Social media has transformed the ability of those with expertise to share their views on recent events with a larger audience. Nowhere is this more true than on Twitter, which attracts millions of visits per day. Healthcare technology and IT experts are among those who frequently offer their slant on the news of the day.

They ranked the list by number of followers and Healthcare Scene’s very own @techguy (John Lynn) was listed at #25. Of course, if they’d included @ehrandhit, @HealthcareScene, @HealthcareITJob, @HospitalEHR, and @HITMarketingPR then we’d have been #3 on the list with over 67k followers.

A big thank you to Health Data Management for the recognition. We’re proud to be listed in such great company. We’ll continue to work hard in our effort to continually provide value to healthcare IT executives.

Healthcare Scene’s @techguy Slots In At #7 on the #HIT100 List

For those not familiar with the #HIT100, it’s a crowd sourced, peer nominated list of people that are doing great and influential things on healthcare social media. Being crowd sourced means that the list is far from perfect. No doubt there are people that are much more influential in healthcare IT at the bottom of the list than some of those people who are at the top. However, having so many peers recognize the work you do in healthcare social media is a great experience.

At Healthcare Scene we’re excited that our very own John Lynn, (@techguy) was listed at #7 on the official #HIT100 list. It’s exciting to be recognized alongside so many influential people in healthcare social media.

This is the 6th year in a row that Healthcare Scene has been recognized on this list. We’ll continue to do what we can to contribute to healthcare IT and share our insights, views, and expertise. Be sure to follow @techguy on Twitter to find all the latest insights and updates.

Healthcare Scene Listed as 1 of 10 Influential HIT Heroes

John Lynn, Founder of Healthcare Scene was recently recognized by Next Wave Connect in their list of 10 Influential HIT Heroes. Here’s a look at why they created this list of influential health IT heroes:

When Health IT (HIT) professionals do their jobs well, many people don’t know they exist. Because of this, HIT has a growing number of rockstars who just don’t get the attention they deserve. On this 10th anniversary of National Health IT week, we want to honor some of those influential HIT Heroes.

Thank you Next Wave Connect for the recognition and we’re excited to be part of such a great group of health IT influencers.
