Over the last week we have not been as diligent in providing posts on happenings in the HIT market (we try to do at least 4/wk) as we prepared for the big industry confab, HIMSS09. Are dance card for HIMSS is completely packed with briefings across a wide expanse of the market, from some of the smaller HIE/RHIO companies such as Axolotl and Medicity, to the big consumer plays of Google and Microsoft (note, MS also has a growing clinical initiative in Amalga – will be briefed on that as well), to EMR plays Eclipsys, McKesson and SaaS darling athenahealth to those companies developing mHealth apps for consumers and clinicians.
Over the course of the next four days we will provide updates on what we see and hear, being your eyes and ears at the show. Of course, with any large show of this type there is always a number of announcements as vendors stand-up and pound their chests in front o their competitors. Those announcements may truly shake-up the market will be covered, all the other nonsense, ignored.
Note: Chilmark Research was privy and pre-briefed on a big announcement by a large IDN of a technology stack that has consumer and clinician facing aspects to it. Stay tuned, analysis forthcoming regarding.
In addition to periodic updates on the Chilmark Research site, there will also be live “tweets” ia Twitter. On the left is the Twitter feed that you can check. You may also follow directly on Twitter by following: @john_chilmark If you want an even Bigger view of all things HIMSS09, via Twitter, their are a number of others at the event who will be tweeting their impresssions. Best way to get the big picture view is using the hashtag #himss09. And for that hashtag, Twitterfall is the best.
Thanks for the reports, I look forward to reading them every week. Keep up the good work.
