Today was the last day of the exhibit hall at the HIMSS 2016 Annual Conference. As I ponder on the #HIMSSsanity of the last 5 days, I’m struck with one big takeaway.

The people at HIMSS 2016 are the best part of the conference!

Sure, there are outliers in every community. Plus, we all have our weaknesses. However, from my experience, HIMSS 2016’s 41,712 attendees represent and extraordinary group of people.

While healthcare has many challenges. Considering the many amazing people involved in healthcare IT, I have to be very optimistic about our future.

Tomorrow’s the last day and has 2 keynotes. Then, I’ll sleep the whole weekend.
