Insights for Healthcare Leaders
Dear Healthcare Colleagues, 

What a crazy few week’s we are living through! I’m sure that by now most everyone has been affected by COVID-19 in one way or another. 
As an official HIMSS20 Collaborator, we were looking forward to contributing content and in supporting the 2020 HIMSS Conference, our members, and our sponsor partners. In an effort to make lemonade out of lemons, we’ve been working with our sponsors and partners to create and curate content prepared for the conference - which I’m excited to share in this newsletter. 
As we do all year-round, and particularly in light of the ongoing cancellation of healthcare events around the country, HCEG will be focusing on providing even more virtual opportunities for HCEG Top 10-related content and networking opportunities. Stay tuned! 

I encourage you to review the content we and our partners have created and share with your own network. 
Keep smiling and keep well,

Executive Director
The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG)
2020 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition
The historic cancellation of the 2020 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition has impacted the way healthcare leaders and change makers obtain information, exchange ideas, and network with others. In the last two weeks, many conferences cancelling their physical events have gone virtual to salvage the content and speakers they had lined up.

Others are scrambling to figure out how to support their attendees going forward. Indeed, the conference and media industry – healthcare or otherwise – are mapping out their future.

This post shares some information on the virtual events and content the HealthCare Executive Group, our sponsors, partners and others are sharing to make the best of the cancellation of the 2020 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition. 

Also included are some plans HCEG is making to continue our year-round approach to supporting the information sharing, collaboration, and networking needs of healthcare executives, change makers, and the myriad of third parties that support them.
HCEG Sponsors Share HIMSS20 Content - Virtually
Several of our sponsor partners were quick to share some of the content they had planned to present at last week’s 2020 HIMSS Conference & Exhibition.

How HCEG Supports Healthcare Leaders All Year Round
Unlike the many one-and-done conference events where attendees, speakers, vendors, and exhibitors gather physically once a year for a few days, the HealthCare Executive Group offers both physical and digital (i.e. ‘virtual’) networking, presentation and information exchange opportunities throughout the entire year. As more and more conference events are cancelled and scramble to deliver more virtual events and content, it’s becoming important to take advantage of what organization’s like HCEG provide to forward-thinking healthcare leaders.

To learn more about how HCEG helps to enhance collaboration, content creation, curation, and sharing – and provide both virtual and small, in-person networking opportunities for healthcare executives and change makers, see this recent blog post: The HealthCare Executive Group: Supporting & Convening Leaders & Change Makers in 2020 & Beyond.

With everything going on with COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to keep business continuity and have proper disaster recovery planning. Healthcare security should be more about policies on paper and more about being fully prepared to implement when necessary.
