HIMSS Day Four: Opportunity for Data Release

Lots of organizations use the HIMSS conference as the location to release new products, new studies, new personnel changes. I have been witnessing this all during and just before and after the conference. I have received a myriad of press releases and emails. I suppose it makes sense from a public relations and uptake standpoint: release new information (devices, data) when there is a ready-made audience of 44,000 people, give or take.

The Problem with Queen Bees

I know, for a fact, that my shit stinks. No need to get graphic, but I know it. In the physical realm, but more importantly in the business realm. I know, for a fact, that I haven't mastered everything, I don't execute everything absolutely perfectly, I still have a ton of learning to do, and that my advice is sound, but may not be the exact advice someone needs to unlock their fullest potential. But the pursuit of perfecting all of those imperfections is what makes me excited to wake up every day and get after it.

HIMSS Day Three: A WOW on Wearable Devices and Usable Programs

To be candid, I was getting worried about this HIMSS conference. There were abundant presentations and exhibits but at least for me, they seemed too theoretical or too technical. Many were at the 30,000 foot level. Many were engineer driven. The words “interoperable,” and “silos” and “coordinated efforts” and “shared efforts” were repeated again and again.

Hire Top Talent, Then Get Out of Their Way

Nothing is more important than hiring the right people. Every single hiring you do comes with the power to impact the organisation in a big way. Great hires positively affect the work culture and bring new methods to innovate and grow. On the other hand, a single poor hiring decision can take the business to a downward spiral - costing the company on a much bigger level.

HIMSS2019: Day Two Begins

Today was supposed to begin with the Keynote addresses --- starting at 8:30 a.m. Well, despite a timely departure, there were delays getting to the Convention Center (the bus took the wrong route and several wrong turns). This prevented an on-time arrival -- kind of like flights to a meeting where one experiences delays. And, even when my busload of folks arrived at the Convention Center, it was like we were at the bottom of a ski slope where one then needed a chairlift or gondola to get to the point where one begins the actual activities.
