From HIMSS to ITCH: A Week in Conferences

Two health informatics events are taking place this week.

The HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition (HIMSS11) is being held at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando FL, USA from 20-24 February (http://www.himssconference.org). HIMSS are making a great deal of use of social media around the event, so those unable to be present can follow some of the event through a variety of channels, including Twitter (hashtag #HIMSS11 or the main HIMSS Twitter feed http://twitter.com/HIMSS). IN addition, there is a ‘HIMSS Online Daily’ page providing blog-style updates and reports – see http://www.himssconference.org/daily In addition, a number of health informatics bloggers and reporters are covering the event.

If any IMIA members at HIMSS11 wish to provide us with any materials, we will be happy to add it here (subject to editing).

ITCH 2011 will take place February 24 – 27 at the Inn at Laurel Point, Victoria, BC Canada – see http://itch.uvic.ca/index.php Program information on speakers and other presentations is at http://itch.uvic.ca/program.php The conference theme for 2011 is “Health Informatics: International Perspectives.”

IMIA is pleased to support both events; HIMSS and University of Victoria are both IMIA Members.
