Early Bird Registration for Digital Health Conference Ends Friday

We’ve worked with the Digital Health Conference since nearly the beginning.  It’s a really amazing conference that brings together the New York healthcare IT community and many thought leaders from around the globe.  Check out the full agenda for the conference to find more details on the great content they’ll provide.

I’m particularly interested to see what Robert Watcher, MD has to say at the conference this year.  He’s just coming off some work with NHS in England and I think he’ll have some interesting perspectives to offer us from that international perspective.

I’m mostly posting about this because the early bird registation for the digital health conference ends on Friday, October 14th.  Yes, that’s this Friday.  Don’t miss out on the discounted early bird rate.  Plus, as a Healthcare Scene reader, you can get an extra 15% discount off your registration by using the promo code HCS.

If you’re planning to be at the event, we usually put together a Tweetup one evening as well.  This is another highlight of the event since it brings together so many smart, social people that care about what’s happening in healthcare IT.  I look forward to seeing many of you there.

Digital Health Conference Early Bird Rates End Friday 9/19

Ever since the first Digital Health Conference in New York City, I’ve partnered with the event. I didn’t know what I was really getting into when I first started working with them, but each year I’ve been impressed with the event they’ve created. It really does bring together some of the best healthcare people in New York State and now a growing national audience as well.
NYeC - Digital Health Conference
As a partner to the conference, you can get a 20% discount off your registration if you use the code: HCS.

I’m excited this year that they’re returning to the beautiful Pier Sixty venue. It’s right on the water which provides for some really amazing lunch breaks. They always bring in a couple big name keynotes and this year is no different with Eric Topol, MD and Ezekiel Emanuel, MD this year.

The early bird registration deadline ends on 9/19/14, so register now before the price to attend goes up. I’ll be at the event as well, so I hope to see many of you there. If you can’t make it, maybe you can catch me at one of the other Health IT conferences I plan to attend.

Digital Health Conference Early Bird Pricing Ends Soon

As I wrote about in my post about the Digital Health Conference in NYC post on EMR and HIPAA, I’ll be attending the conference again this year. In that post I also offered a 20% registration discount for those who want to attend. If you’re planning to attend, you’ll want to register today or tomorrow since early bird pricing for the event ends on 9/20/13.

I’m particularly excited to hear George Halverson, CEO of Kaiser speak at the event. I’ve never heard him in person and there’s little argument that Kaiser has done some things that no one else in healthcare has done. This is particularly true in the healthcare IT space. I just hope it goes beyond just telling us the same superlatives we’ve already heard about Kaiser and health IT (ie. the mass adoption of the portal by their patients).

Of course, I’m also most excited to network with the people who attend the event. The Digital Health Conference is a unique opportunity because there is a sprinkling of the usual health IT conference crowd together with a lot of local providers and healthcare leaders. Not that I’m against the great discussions I have with the usual health IT conference crowd, but it’s nice to get a number of new perspectives as well.

I also won’t be surprised if we put together another tweetup at the event. Last year’s tweetup was done in the pouring rain, but was really enjoyable. Hopefully local NYC resident @healthcarewen puts one together again.
