MGMA 2011 New Media Meetup Event

John Lynn of EMRandHIPAA is at it again.  Following his successful string of New Media Meetups at HIMSS the past several years he is taking the concept to MGMA 2011. And this time he’s asked HITECH Answers to co-host this event with him.

Over the past couple of years we’ve had the occaisional back-and-forth with John on various Health IT topics.  We say ‘toe-may-toe’, he says ‘toe-ma-toe’. We say EHR, he says EMR.  But when it comes to new media and Health IT we definitely speak the same language.

So what, exactly, is a New Media Meetup?  If you’re unfamiliar with the term new media, it  is simply content that is digitized and readily available 24/7 through digital devices. New media also provides a platform for immediate interactivity with a reader  (feedback, comments, etc.) as well as creates communities around like-minded groups of individuals.  Think Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. Think bee hives.

This New Media Meetup event is for anyone who participates in new media, likes new media, wants to talk about new media. Pretty much anyone. Ironies of ironies the meetup is face to face. That’s right. This won’t be a virtual, digital event.  We’ll be socializing old school.

Everyone attending MGMA 2011 is welcome. There will be food, drink and prizes graciously provided by our event sponsor, free EHR vendor Mitochon Systems. We hope to see you there!
