Last year during HiMSS12 in Las Vegas Dell Health sponsored a ‘think tank’ convening experts from in and around the health information technology stakeholder community including many social media thought leaders, domain experts and journalists. The recorded live stream of that event is available below:
This year in round two the Dell Health team elected to convene a 2013 vintage of the event after HiMSS13 in order to stage a ‘reflections’ if not debrief roundtable conversation on the state of health information technology industry, including key themes and takeaways if not additional seasoning from SxSW Interactive.

By Gregg A. Masters, MPH But you should. Until FutureMed 2013 streamed ‘the future on oncology’ segment I didn’t know Jack. So get to know Jack Andraka (@jackandraka). A 15 (now 16) year old high school student that may just revolutionize diagnostic medicine. Detecting potential cancers at the ‘precursor lesion’ would cause a seismic shift [...]
Gregg A. Masters, MPH Last year HiMSS social media staff supported by many of us in the community who do this for the most part as a passion and more often than not ‘for free and for fun’ participated in a big way to build an awesome ‘digital footprint‘. In fact, one of the sessions [...]

Mattering in the hyper-connected digital media world
Social media and interactive digital communications are rapidly evolving as the confluence of technology and changing consumer behaviors stretch if not de-construct the value proposition of traditional marketing and advertising practice.
No longer content, nor willing, to be reduced to statistical constructs or cleverly labelled lifestyle and values demographics for targeted pitches, we demand to be recognized as individuals in the circles we travel or tribes with which we identify. Rapid diffusion of ‘smartphone’ and related technology, coupled with the attraction of real time dynamic social networks, demand a new level of distributed engagement to win us at the Zero Moment of Truth historically inaccessible via push marketing and advertising 1.0.
We are interactive digital platform architects, content producers, new media journalists, bloggers, twitter activists and ‘walkers of the new media talk.’ We monitor emerging technologies and architect 'best in class' platforms in service of your company or organization’s mission. Whether a premium private label play, or leveraged lean ‘freemium’ game-plan we’ll model, advise and technically assist your initial entry or strategic repositioning of existing online assets or campaigns.
Marcy Kaptur (D-OH9) tweeted a joke from the White House Correspondents Dinner. But then she erased it 8 minutes later.

How do I explain our inability to prescribe medicines to a patient who acutely needs them? Or explain our limitations to a doctor who rarely thinks about them? How do I justify not treating a patient to my own conscience? […]

By Jeff Goldsmith There has been a lot of controversy in health policy circles recently about hospital market consolidation and its effect on costs. However, less noticed than the quickened pace of industry consolidation is a more puzzling and largely unremarked-upon development: hospitals seem to have hit the wall in technological innovation. One can wo […]
By Shiv Gaglani What if the next time you step into your doctor’s office for an examination, she reaches into her white coat pocket and pulls out an iPhone instead of a stethoscope? That’s the idea behind The Smartphone Physical, a re-imagination of the physical exam using only smartphones and a few devices that connect […]
