We’ve hit Day 4, and that’s a wrap on HIMSS16! We can’t begin to tell you how much fun we’ve had interacting with you on social media and live in-person! We had some incredible conversations about health IT, made a ton of new friends and feel invigorated for what’s ahead.

Keeping the momentum going even on the last day, HIMSS15 Day 4’s tweets continued with some great insights and unique perspective. As we wave goodbye to HIMSS16, take a moment to reflect on what resonated most with attendees in our Day 4 round up of the top tweets we saw. These are some great ones that will certainly make you think hard about where the next phase of collaboration and innovation in healthcare and technology needs to head.
