I recently spent three days (20-22 February) at the 2012 meeting of HIMSS (Health Information Management Systems Society) in Las Vegas. I attended a number of sessions and spent a good deal of time on the exhibit floor exploring several major topics. There was a lot to see in three days, and a fair amount of noise, but also some interesting and valuable information that I want to share with CHC colleagues.
