I’ll admit that I’m having an interesting challenge figuring out how to manage all of the various things I can do at HIMSS. I’m sure that many others have the same problem. Not to mention managing the mix of all the content that’s coming out and planning my own visit to HIMSS. A great problem to have I think.

For those who are interested in meeting me, here’s a couple places where you will be sure to find me at HIMSS 10:
HIMSS Meet the Blogger Panel – I’ll be on the panel on Monday, March 1st from 3-4:30. This is an incredible panel of people that I highly respect. This should be a really lively discussion.

New Media Meetups at HIMSS 10 – These events are shaping up to be really incredible events. Looking through the list of people who have RSVP’d for the kick off event, it’s going to be a really interesting mix of people. Not to mention Colbie Caillat singing, free food and some great free giveaways. Make sure you Register for the Kick Off Event on Monday, March 1st at the MEDecision party. Thanks to MxSecure and Pervasive for also sponsoring the other meetups.

I’d love to meetup with other people or if you’re an EMR vendor that’s doing something innovative let me know in the comments or drop me a note on my Contact Us page.

There are so many events I’m interested in attending. However, no doubt I’ll have some fun at the CCHIT Town Hall Meeting and I’ll be hoping that the David Blumenthal’s HIMSS Keynote is meaningful.

Are there any must see sessions or events? Let me know of any events you think I should attend and cover on this blog.

Also, if you’re interested in following my HIMSS 10 coverage, you can sign up for my EMR and HIPAA email list, check out my posts on EMR and EHR, and follow my tweets on my @ehrandhit and @techguy twitter accounts. It will basically be like you’re there with me.
