Here’s what some HIMSS staffers want to #AskAneesh:
Edna Boone, Senior Director, mHIMSS (@mHIMSS) asks:
- What can private industry, consumers and the government do to ensure barriers are cleared paving the way for patient management without walls?
David Collins (@collinsdavid), Senior Director, Professional Development asks:
- Will apps bridge the gap between patients and providers and provide consumer engagement in their own care?
Mary Griskewicz (@mgriskewicz), Senior Director, Healthcare Information Systems asks:
- What do you think will be the tipping point for clinicians to truly understand PHI belongs to the patient/consumer? How can we define the role HIT plays to eEngage with consumers?
Tom Leary (@tlearyHIMSS), Senior Director, Federal Affairs asks:
- Before you left government, health IT, energy, and education were three growing areas for US exports. Do you still agree these are growth areas? How have the US agreements with India and South Korea supported or hindered the vision?
Tom Martin (@tommartin3) Manager, mHIMSS asks:
- How will mHealth achieve integration into our daily lives, which requires sound ROI, interoperability and free exchange of data, and the need for heightened security?
