The one thing that makes all the hassles of event travel, hotels, crowds, buses, and overpriced convention food worth it is this: relationships. Nothing beats getting face-to-face with the people with whom you partner, work, or serve. That's why events are important and why we strive to make the most of our time while we're all together in the same geography. HIMSS17 was another great chance to do that. And for that, we are, once again, grateful. Read, watch, and experience some of the fun, the takeaways, and the giving that we were lucky to be a part of this year at HIMSS17.
In late October, Nordic welcomed Chief Client Officer Mark Costanza to the team. After Mark joined the Nordic delegation at last week’s CHIME Fall Forum, we asked him to share a few key takeaways from the event.
The energy generated while at HIMSS16 is still flowing strongly here at Nordic. We had a great time learning, connecting with partners (new and old), and even giving back. Here's a recap of the things we learned, the great opportunities we had to connect, and even the positive impact we were able to make with a slight change to our approach. Oh, and their might be some fun sprinkled in their from #HIStalkapalooza. Enjoy!
As a proud CHIME Foundation Member, we have the opportunity to meet with CIOs during HIMSS and pick their brains about the types of things that are keeping them up at night. One of our focus groups this week was Successfully Extending Your Epic EHR to Your Healthcare Partners: Strategies and Best Practices, hosted by Nordic VP of Affiliate Solutions Abby Polich. Watch the video below to hear Abby share what is hot in this area right now and what sorts of challenges these CIOs are up against. It's certainly a hot topic! One CIO commented, "This was the best CHIME Focus Group I attended all week."
HIMSS16 is off and running in Las Vegas! Before the actual conference started this morning, there was a full day of CHIME CIO Forum sessions that a number of our team members attended. Nordic VP of Business Development Nicole Meidinger took a few minutes last evening to give us a few of her takeaways. Give this video a watch to hear her impressions.
