Special Announcement: Congratulations to the Time for Analytics Sweepstakes Winners of HIMSS14
We’re delighted to announce the winners of our Time for Analytics sweepstakes held during the HIMSS14 Annual Conference & Exhibition. The seven winners are Ted Bailey, Sr.; Shane Fenton; George Gellert, MD; Jonathan Rubin; Michael Kummer; David J. Runt; and Mohamad Arif Ali, MD.
Even better than the announcement is the cool prize they won: a Pebble Steel watch! In fact, when the watches arrived at our office, we had to snatch them up to make sure they got sent to the winners without mysteriously wandering off.
Has anyone tried these out yet? If so, let us know what you think. If they work as well as they look, we’ll have to keep the promotion going for future sweepstakes.
Now Is the Time for Analytics – and Meaningful Use
All kidding aside, it was fascinating to see how analytics was fundamentally part of the majority of HIMSS14 topics this year. Whether it was population health management, ACO, meaningful use, ICD-10, patient portals, clinical integration, data governance, telehealth, value-based purchasing, shared risk, or clinical improvement outcome success stories, there was a common theme: the need for data and a centralized, single version-of-the-truth, from which analytics could commence. It really did feel like the tide was turning from the massive investment that has previously been the EMR, to the meaningful use of the EMR, which is the next wave called analytics.
