As most of you know, we’ve been doing an ongoing series of Healthcare Scene Interviews where we talk to top leaders in healthcare IT. They’ve been a huge success and we just passed our 50th video interview. If you’ve attended one of our live interviews, you know that we grew quite fond of the Blab platform that we used to host these interviews. Unfortunately, we just got word that Blab has been shutdown. It was a sad day, but we still have options.

While we loved Blab, we use to do our interviews on Google Hangouts and so we’re planning to go back there again to keep bringing you great content and discussion about the challenges that face Healthcare IT. Plus, Google Hangouts has been merged into YouTube Live and that brings some great opportunities for those watching both the live and recorded version at home including being able to Subscribe to Healthcare Scene on YouTube.

With that as background, I’m excited to announce our next Healthcare interview happening Friday August 19, 2016 at 11:30 AM ET (8:30 AM PT) where we’ll be talking about “Taking Healthcare Communication to the Next Level.” This is an extremely important and challenging topic, but we’ve lined up a number of incredible experts to take part in our discussion as you’ll see below:

You can watch the interview live and even join in the conversation in the chat on the sidebar by watching on the Healthcare Scene YouTube page or the embedded video below:


(You’ll have to visit the YouTube page to see the live chat since the embed doesn’t include the chat.)

We look forward to learning about healthcare communication from this panel of experts. Please join us and offer your own insights in the chat or ask these amazing panelists your most challenging questions.

Last month I was invited to give the keynote address at the gMed EHR User Conference. For those not familiar with gMed, it’s a Gastro focused EHR company out of Florida. Along with giving the keynote address, I loved the chance to mix and mingle with doctors, practice managers, and gMed’s staff to learn from them. No doubt, their experiences and insights will inform my future posts.

gMed was nice enough to have their videographer record my presentation so I could share it with all of you. I had many people come up to me after the presentation and say very nice things including invitations to come and speak other places. I’ve embedded the video recording below. Hopefully many of you will enjoy my talk as well.

Also, here are the slides I used for my presentation (Note: I don’t just read my slides so some of them might not make sense without the audio):

I mentioned previously that I was a part of a panel on healthcare social media at the Digital Health Conference in New York City. The video from the healthcare social media panel was just posted on YouTube and so I thought I’d share it with those who weren’t able to attend the Digital Health Conference. It was a pretty diverse panel that offered a number of different perspectives and insights in how to use social media in healthcare. The names of the panelists are listed below the video.
