In the world of Healthcare IT, we’re all consumed by the HIMSS Annual Conference happening next week in Orlando. You’ve probably realized that as you’ve read about my HIMSS17 Meetups, my HIMSS17 Conference and Social Media Resources, and my HIMSS17 Tips for Hospital Professionals. Oh yes, and of course my New Media Meetup Party (Be sure to register if you plan to attend). We’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming after next week. Until then, we’ll try to give you a glimpse into the HIMSS conference experience along with insights, perspectives, and a little industry humor.
With that in mind, I was really excited when the brilliant Sarah Bennight, Marketing Strategist at Stericycle’s Enterprise Healthcare Group, shared the idea of #FakeICDCodes with me. In a lot of ways, this is a take off of the humorous ICD-10 codes list that were so popular, but applied to HIMSS17 and the healthcare IT industry as a whole with a little nod to the #FakeNews world.
Here are some sample #FakeICDCodes that I’m sure you’ll appreciate if you’ve taken part in HIMSS or some other large conference.

We’ll be sharing a bunch of other humorous #FakeICDCodes over the next couple weeks if you want to see them all on Twitter. Plus, this doesn’t just apply to #HIMSS17. These codes can apply to the industry year round. Feel free to join in and share your own #FakeICDCodes. We look forward to seeing what creative ones you come up with and share.
