Day 1 is in the books for HIMSS15, and wow – what a start! There’s a buzz in the Windy City and it is definitely #HIMSSanity. The energy and enthusiasm from this year’s attendees has been fantastic and we’re excited for what the next two days will bring.

Back again this year, we’re sharing some of our favorite tweets we’ve seen over the course of today. And by no means did we see the rapid fire tweets from the #HIMSS15 hashtag, but wanted to share the ones we did that are insightful and worthwhile sharing.

In no particular order, here are 10 great tweets we saw from HIMSS15 Day 1.
