Announcing the Inaugural Health IT Expo


Healthcare Scene is pleased to announce the inaugural Health IT Expo conference happening May 30 – June 1, 2018 in New Orleans, LA. HITExpo 2018 is going to be a one of a kind event that brings together the top hospital and health system IT professionals in one venue to experience a new level of collaboration, learning, and fun.

We’re committed to creating a new, unique, collaborative conference experience. Read more about our unique approach from our conference chairperson. If you’re tired of plastic conferences where every session says that everything is perfect and speaks in useless platitudes, then join us at Health IT Expo for an extremely different experience.

The super early bird registration for Health IT Expo is open through January 5, 2018. Register now and save $500 off the regular registration price. If you’re interested in bringing your whole hospital healthcare IT team, reach out to us on our contact us page about group discounts. We love to provide a tremendous team building opportunity together with an amazing conference.

The Health IT Expo Call for Speakers is also open. If you’ve used technology to improve your healthcare organization, we want to hear about your experience. For those not looking to be professional speakers, we have a 15 minute session option where you can share your experiences using IT to improve your hospital or health system without having to spend weeks preparing your presentation. Plus, some amazing ideas only need 10-15 minutes to explain, so why waste 45 minutes sharing something that could be shared in 15? Every session must have practical, implement now takeaways in their presentation.

A big thank you to all of the Health IT Expo sponsors who have signed up. We’re excited to create a uniquely collaborative environment where sponsors and attendees collaborate and work together at the conference. We still have a few sponsor slots available. If you’re interested, take a moment to look at our Health IT Expo sponsor prospectus. Be sure to take a look at our unique health IT user focus group or user group meetings available for sponsors as well.

We look forward to seeing many of you from the Healthcare Scene community at Health IT Expo in New Orleans! If you have any questions about this new conference, please let us know on our contact us page.

2018 Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference (#HITMC)


Healthcare Scene is excited to announce the 5th Annual Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Conference (HITMC). HITMC 2018 is happening April 4-6, 2018 in New Orleans, LA. Once again, we’re working hard to take this special marketing and PR community to a whole new level of engagement, learning, and fun.

Registration for the Health IT Marketing and PR Conference will be open until 3/7/18 with the super early bird rate ending on 11/1/17. The conference Call for Speakers will be open until 10/31/17. So, act now and join the HITMC community in New Orleans!

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. Plus, in 2018 we are adding a dedicated B2C (Patient Marketing) track that will be of interest to hospital marketing professionals.

Along with all of the education sessions, HITMC 2018 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 2018, we’re bringing those back in an even bigger way. Plus, the conference is in New Orleans, so we’ll be enjoying plenty of fun as a community at our various networking events.

Another great part of the 2018 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. Plus, this year, we’ll be adding an exhibit hall to the event with dedicated exhibit hall time. However, as in previous years, we expect our sponsors to fully participate in the rest of the conference and community events as well. A few sponsorship slots are still available if you act quickly.

If you’re not already registered for the 2018 Healthcare IT Marketing Conference, Register Now before it’s too late. We look forward to seeing many of you in New Orleans at HITMC 2018!

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.
