HIMSS15 Videos: Interviews from the Exhibit Floor

HIMSS15 has come and gone but the memories live on…on YouTube. I was fortunate to be able to catch up with some industry thought leaders on the exhibit floor in Chicago. Questions ran the gamut, from interoperability to pop health, stage 3 MU to the move to value-based care, and ICD-10. MIPs popped up as the latest health IT acronym, along with our new reality of consolidated quality reporting and incentive programs by 2018.
