HIMSS15 – HIMSSANITY a Meta View from the Floors

Posted on April 17, 2015 by Amos Adler

What a crazy few days its been at HIMSS. While I can describe all the sessions and attendees I’ll spare you what you can read on their website and focus on the experiential part of the event. Think 43,000 people crammed into the cozy corner of Chicago at McKormick Place, the world’s second largest exhibition hall. What’s interesting about HIMMSS is its massive scale, overwhelming number of people, exhibitions and the sheer size of the booze, cappuccino, swag filled conference. One of the best parts is the exercise of walking 8 miles a day all around the event hall. I wanted to understand the commercial focus of the event from a competitive perspective as well as to get inspired and understand the marketplace.

You can change the system: How Estonia has built the most advanced eHealth system in the world

Posted on March 09, 2015 by Noah Nemoy

Perhaps the best thing about being a MaRS based start-up is attending the guest lectures. MaRS regularly hosts global experts in science and technology, and their discussions are extremely enlightening. Last month’s lecture, given by the former CEO of the Estonia eHealth Foundation Dr. Madis Tiik, was no exception. A common frustration with mHealth start-ups is that the healthcare systems they operate under are rigid, monolithic, and resistant to change. However, Dr. Tiik’s inspiring presentation showed that a nationwide eHealth system is indeed possible.
