We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 4/27 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Erica Johansen (@thegr8chalupa) on the topic of “Dreaming BIG for Health IT”.

I’m from Texas and Texas is known for BIG things. Big skies, big ranches, and big hair… “Everything is bigger in Texas,” after all. Texas is no stranger to big ideas either and some exciting things are taking place in the Lone Star State, even as it relates to health IT.

I will be hosting the chat from onsite at the Texas Regional HIMSS conference from Dallas. The conference is a BIG deal for folks in the Texas region, and thanks to the beauty of social media, the conversation doesn’t have to be local. We invite you to dream BIG and discuss what makes health IT an exciting industry to be a part of.

Please join us for this week’s #HITsm chat as we discuss the following:

T1: What ideas are we not thinking big enough about? Should we expand our thinking? #HITsm

T2: What are we thinking too big about and should we think smaller? #HITsm

T3: Are healthcare organizations becoming too big? Should we have smaller organizations or larger ones? #HITsm

T4: Is healthcare data big enough? Why? Why not? #HITsm

T5: Where do you look for big innovations in and out of healthcare? What do you foresee as a big influencer to the healthcare space in the coming years? #HITsm

Bonus: Dream big about healthcare technology – What big things do you see materializing in the future? #HITsm
