HIMSS 2018 and Innovations in Healthcare: #Kareochat Recap

Leading up to the HIMSS 2018 conference in Las Vegas, NV, excitement was in the air among #Kareochat participants. (Join the chat every first and third Thursday of the month at 10 a.m. PST/12 p.m. EST.) They chatted about topics ranging from workflows to 3D printing to navigating the conference and the most anticipated events! 

Participants joined host Chuck Webster, MD, @wareFLO, Social Media Ambassador for #HIMSS18, to chat about a variety of topics of interest to those attending the annual conference. Here's a recap:

What Workflow Problem Are You Trying To Solve? Any Presentations or Products Seem Promising?

Workflow is a topic that is always being discussed. How are we doing? How can we be more efficient? All great questions to ask to continually improve ourselves. 

Technology is a helpful companion to workflow!

Have You Tried a VR Headset? Where Do You See The Biggest Use In Healthcare?

A few of the chat participants have used a VR headset, and found them to be very exciting! 

Can You Foresee a Use Case For 3D Printing?

3D printing is not that far from use in a practice. Custom fit casts and prosthetic hands are already in use. The participants pointed out how 3D printing is already helping many people. 

Great chat! As always, join us every first and third Thursday at 9 a.m. Pacific time @GoKareo #KareoChat to talk about critical topics facing independent practices and the patients they serve.
