This week Boston will be hopping with healthcare leaders and innovators coming in for HealthCamp Boston, which takes place tomorrow and Health 2.0 which follows on the 22nd and 23rd. I’ll be attending both events and do my best to provide updates.
Though I usually will write a post on events I attend, lately I have been using Twitter to provide quick little snippets of impressions, issues discussed, questions raised, etc. On the right, there is a “Twitter-feed” that provides the most recent 5 “tweets.” Thus, you can periodically check there for any “live” updates from either event.
Better yet is the website Twitterfall. On Twitterfall, one need simply enter the “hashtag” for the event they wish to see updates from and Twitterfall provides a stream of tweets from anyone at the event using Twitter. I found Twitterfall particularly useful at this year’s HIMSS as I was able to quickly get a grasp of other things happening at HIMSS that others were reporting on (tweeting) that due to scheduling conflicts, I was unable to attend.
Twitter hashtags for this week’s events:
For HealthCamp Boston: #hcbos
