Give a Little Health IT Thanks this Holiday Season


Grumpy Cat may not support more coordinated care, but the health IT community is definitely on board. Last week, healthcare brands, advocates and professionals shared messages of gratitude for what they feel is working in digital health. This practice was started last year by the HL7Standards team to encourage the community to stop focusing on what isn’t working and applaud the progress that’s been made. Find some of this year’s messages of #HITthanks below and share your own gratitude on Twitter or Facebook.

“I am thankful that health IT is helping my son Andrew, a type 1 diabetic since age 5, ilive a healthier life. And I expect the mHealth will play a huge role in his – and our – future.” – Eric Wicklund, mHealth News Editor

“Without health IT, all of the clinicians that care for me and my loved ones would have an extremely difficult time making informed decisions about the care that we need.” – Mari Greenberger, Director, Informatics at HIMSS North America
