Health Technology Forum

Dallas/Fort Worth Meetup

The monthly events are hosted by IBM at their Innovation Center in Dallas near LBJ and Stemmons.  Food and refreshments are provided.   Suggestions for speakers are always welcome for future events!  These events are always an hour or two of great networking, learning and discovery.

At these completely FREE monthly meetups, we discuss real-life technology use-cases from hospitals, doctor offices, medical billing, insurance, remote monitoring, health and wellness, and various patient-care services.   Subject matter experts, users, entrepreneurs, regulators, and providers address each other’s needs and solutions.  The objective is to connect entrepreneurs with professionals who are addressing these real-life problems that exist today in the healthcare ecosystem.  We also review how low-cost, scalable, deployable systems can meet or exceed the needs of 21st century care-giving.

In a number of significant ways, managing a Twitter account is similar to managing a radio station. In order to captivate listeners’ attention, the Twitter account must have a “deejay” with a unique and memorable personality who is focused on building relationships with listeners.  A successful Twitter account must also stream quality content that is local and familiar to its audience.

The health care industry is changing dramatically, and Twitter provides the opportunity for clinical and technical professionals to discuss these changes, interact with key decision makers and influence the outcomes. There is tremendous value for a tool that can help facilitate those conversations, and Twitter provides that opportunity.


Erica V. Olenski is an Account Executive at Corepoint Health and the VP of Communications for the DFW chapter of HIMSS.  She is the founder of the #HITsm hashtag on behalf of HL7 Standards (@HealthStandards) and the weekly tweet chat held on Fridays at 11 a.m. CST.  #HITsm is currently is the #1 most popular healthcare related hashtag on Twitter.

Erica was voted a #HIT100 Top Contributor, being the 3rd most nominated contributor by those involved with the healthcare technology community on Twitter.
