HIMSS 2018 Recap: By the Numbers
HIMSS 2018 proved to be a successful event once again for the Direct Consulting Associates Team. Four of our team members attended this year; Frank Myeroff - President, Ranae Rousse - VP of Sales, Tom Clark – VP of Operations, and David Duggan – Account Manager. DCA was able to collectively attend educational sessions, volunteer, network with HIT professionals, and visit several booths during the show.
A key highlight of the show for the DCA team volunteering at the Interoperability Showcase, a 30,000 square foot exhibition that demonstrates the interoperability imperative for connecting health and care. In total, the DCA team collectively volunteered 27.5 hours at the showcase!
Not only did DCA chalk up volunteer hours, they also tracked some impressive numbers in other areas during the show:
Meetings at the show: 69
Sessions attended in support of active clients and partners: 17
HIMSS Chapter events: 10
Steps taken (for just 3 team members who tracked): 188,784
Gambling Debt: only $100!
Overall, HIMSS 2018 offered the DCA team many networking opportunities, the chance to re-connect with partners, clients, and friends in addition to learning about new technologies in the space. As the team recovers from the extensive amount of walking, DCA had a great time and looks forward to HIMSS19!
