Mobile Healthcare Expo
I recently signed up to be a media partner for the Mobile Health Expo in Las Vegas. It’s happening October 19,20, and 21st and it looks to be a really interesting conference with some really power players in the mobile healthcare market.

I’ll be “moderating” a couple sessions on Wednesday, but that’s just misuse of a term. I’m going to be introducing the speakers and opening it up for question and answers as needed. I of course will be doing the HITECH and mHealth session by Vince Kuraitis and then I also was asked to do the session titled “The Role of Mobile in Professional Marketing Programs” by Robert Kadar.

I must admit that I’ve gone pretty light on the mobile healthcare and mHealth coverage on this site. Hopefully this conference will open my eyes to some new elements of mobile healthcare that I hadn’t considered before.

Of course, if that doesn’t work, it looks like they have some pretty good parties. It is Las Vegas after all.

If you’re planning to attend, I’d love to meet up with you.

MGMA Annual Conference
I was hoping to go to the MGMA annual conference in New Orleans October 24-27, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. I thought I had a vendor who was going to sponsor my flight and hotel in return for sponsorship of my posts from MGMA, but that fell through. There’s always next year. I hear that registrations numbers for MGMA are way up. If you’re planning to go, I’ll be interested to hear how it goes.
