After a dry spell of no in-person industry events, Liz and I will soon be headed to the dry heat of Las Vegas to participate in #HIMSS21. It will definitely look a little different than the last time we convened at HIMSS, but nevertheless, I’m looking forward to connecting with many members, friends and colleagues in-person.

I will be participating on a panel during the Interoperability Showcase and co-leading an education session with our member, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, on the importance of data quality. Watch a preview of the data quality presentation below and follow along for live tweets @CommonWell. I’ll also be stopping by the Patient-Centered Care for Chronic Disease use case at the HIMSS Interoperability Showcase™ to see MatrixCare and Cerner showcase CommonWell services.

Cheers to a safe and successful HIMSS for all!
