Industry Executives Weigh In on Health IT Issues at HIMSS13

Hear what industry leaders have to say about the state of Health IT

HIMSS 2013 may have come and gone but HIMSS Highlights live on. HIMSS highlights are produced by HITECH Answers and represent a series of  podcast interviews of C-level executives from leading health IT companies and agencies. It is always fascinating to hear what these leaders have to say about the current (and future) state of the industry. The interviews cover a range of topics including the latest health IT industry surveys, HIPAA Omnibus and data security, Interoperability and Big Data, and if the EHR/Health IT bubble will burst.
