When you have a conference that brings together more than 40,000 health IT professionals clinicians vendors executives patients and speakers you to pull out the social media big guns. I have the pleasure of talking to Steve Sisko known as @shimcode in twitter about being a Social Media Ambassador for HIMSS 16 on Get Social Health.
Being a Social Media Ambassador for the largest healthcare conference is a privilege and an honor and a lot of work. If you can’t attend a conference look up the hashtag for the event, follow the action and participate. You’ll be amazed at how engaged you can be even from afar.
