One of the great things about being the Health IT Officer at a big security firm is that no one really knows what you do.  I get to slip quietly back and forth between customers who are dealing with the reality, to sales teams, or to product teams and to marketers, to Symantec partners (both real and imagined), to software and hardware vendors and to industry associations.  It gives you a bigger view of what is going on.  And it is impossible to think of the bigger picture in Health IT without thinking of HIMSS Annual Conference.  And it is never bigger than when it is in Orlando!

Recently I got some information from HIMSS regarding the upcoming HIMSS14 and topics that attendees will be focused on.  They had a great infographic that included a section showing what topics people would be looking for at HIMSS.  All the usual suspects were there:  MU, ICD-10, Analytics, HIE, mHealth, Interoperability, EHR, Privacy and Security . . . ...

To:  HIMSS Emerging Professionals,

Registration is open for the September 14th Emerging Professionals webinar:

Meaningful Mentoring or Mentoring for Fun & Profit (Everybody’s)*

David S. Finn, CISA, CISM, CRISC, Health IT Officer, Symantec

A seriously light-hearted look at what being a mentor is all about.  We’ll learn how mentoring got started, what it means to be one and that there can be different mentors for different needs.

  • Be familiar with different kinds of mentors, personal & professional

Friday, September 14th
