We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 2/17 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Hosted by Burt Rosen (@burtrosen) from @healthsparq. We’ll be discussing the topic “Enough talk, lets #GSD (Get Stuff Done)“.

One of the big challenges I’ve had with tweet chats in the past is that we engage in some really interesting conversation, but it’s not clear how that conversation translates into action. I know that many #HITsm chats have benefited my work, but I think we could still take the #HITsm community to a new level if we could get more stuff done.

Given this week’s topic, it seems like Burt Rosen agrees with me. This week’s #HITsm chat is designed to move beyond talk and has you make a personal commitment to doing something. Plus, we’re going to have Burt back to host a future chat to follow up and see how everyone is doing.

The Topics
Here are the topics to help flesh out the theme of ‘Enough talk, lets #GSD (Get Stuff Done).’

T1: How are you using that super power right now to make a real, measurable difference in health care? #HITsm

T2: What’s your kryptonite? What obstacles are you facing? #HITsm

T3: Does your work depend on other people? How are you connecting them/connecting with them to keep things moving forward? #HITsm

T4: Any advice to help each other out? #HITsm

T5: A year from now, will you have changed health care in a way you’re proud of? #HITsm

Bonus: Now that you’ve all committed to being health care heroes – what are you going to call yourself when you wear your cape? #HITsm

#HIMSS17 Meetup with #HITsm and #hcldr
If you’ll be at HIMSS, we’re doing a physical #HITsm meetup combined with the #hcldr community on Tuesday, 2/21 from 10:00-10:45 AM ET at the Orlando Convention Center Lobby Hall D. There will be many people participating in the meetup virtually using the #HITsm and #hcldr hashtags as well. So, if you aren’t at #HIMSS17, then you can still join anyway. Here’s a link to find more details on this meetup and other Healthcare Scene meetups at HIMSS17.

Upcoming #HITsm Chat Schedule
2/24 – HIMSSanity Recovery Chat
With #HIMSS17 happening the week of this chat, we’ll take the week off from a formal chat. However, we encourage people that attended HIMSS or watched HIMSS remotely to share a “Tweetstorm” that tells a #HIMSS17 story, shares insights about a topic, rants on a topic of interest, or shows gratitude. Plus, it will be fun to test out a new form of tweetstorm Twitter chat. We’ll post more details as we get closer.

3/3 – “Is it ground hog day with population health?
Hosted by @dchou1107 and @cschealth

3/10 – TBD

We look forward to learning from the #HITsm community! As always let us know if you have ideas for how to make #HITsm better.
