Today we held the first ever #HITMC (Healthcare IT Marketing and PR Community) Twitter chat. The turnout for the chat was amazing and it was so active I don’t think anyone could keep up. That’s pretty amazing for a first time chat. In case you missed it and are interested in health IT marketing and PR, here’s my tweet that links to the transcript:

I’m particularly interested to look back at the answer to question 3 on the chat which talks about the tools that people use to make their lives easier.

Here’s a look at the stats for the first HITMC chat:

All of this tells me that I should have started this twitter chat sooner. It’s amazing how a Twitter chat can really bring a community together. Plus, it always leads to interesting new connections that wouldn’t have happened otherwise. Tomorrow I’ll be participating in another new Twitter chat that’s focused on Health Information Governance. If that topic interests you, be sure to join us on #InfoTalk at Noon ET on January 28th.

Plus, as a reader of EMR and HIPAA, use the promo code “emrandhipaa” and you’ll save an extra $100. We’ve just started uploaded the speaker profiles for those who will be speaking at the event.

Next week (April 7-8) the inaugural Health IT Marketing and PR Conference is happening in Las Vegas. As most of you know, I’ve worked really hard to make this a great event for everyone involved. A look at the final agenda for the conference should give you an idea of how great this event is going to be.

Free Live Stream
For those of you who weren’t able to make it to Las Vegas for the event, we’ve put together a free live stream of the conference. All you need to do is go to that page and register. Then, we’ll email you the details you’ll need to access the live stream. We appreciate Health Innovation Media and Supernap which provided the technology and support needed to make the live stream available for FREE.

Guitar Giveaway
One of the speakers has also put together a great free guitar giveaway for those attending the conference or watching from home. Chris O’Neal from peer60 and formerly of KLAS will be giving a presentation on How to Influence Ratings, Marketing Research, and Analyst Firms from 9:30-10:30 a.m. PT on Monday, April 7 of the conference. To enter, tweet how many minutes and seconds into his speech Chris will repeat the famous Rolling Stones song title, “I can’t get no satisfaction.” Be sure to mention @peer_60 and include the hashtags #HITmc and #guitargiveaway.

Here’s a simple link that will prime your tweet with everything you need to enter except the guess itself. Check out the peer60 blog post which has all the details, rules, and a picture of the guitar they’re giving away.
