Yesterday we attended the NorCal HIMSS Innovation Conference & Showcase in Santa Clara. As mentioned in an earlier post, it’s one of several events we have scheduled for early 2017.

Method Versus the Product – Lessons on Innovation from Outside Healthcare

I was able to sit in on Joshua Newman’s keynote speech on Lessons on Innovation from Outside Healthcare. Joshua is the Chief Medical Officer and General Manager of Healthcare at Salesforce. I first saw him speak at Dreamforce 2015.

I like that he continues to reinforce that 65% of patients surveyed want their doctors to email and text them. I also liked his slide from the early days of Salesforce.

Uniting Tribes and Democratizing Data – The Art of the Data Governance Deal

I also attended Uniting Tribes and Democratizing Data – The Art of the Data Governance Deal, which was moderated by Sherri Douville.

Joining her on the panel were:

Leveraging AI & Machine Learning for Precision Medicine & Population Health

The final panel was Leveraging AI & Machine Learning for Precision Medicine & Population Health, which was moderated by Prashant Natarajan, Healthcare Product Director at Oracle.

Joining him on the panel were:

  • Oscar E. Streeter, MD, FACRO, Center for Thermal Oncology
  • Mitesh Rao, Director of the Center for Advancing Patient Safety and Emergency Medicine Professor, Stanford Healthcare and School of Medicine
  • Bob Rogers, Chief Data Scientist for Big Data Solutions, Intel Corporation
  • Zeeshan Syed, MD, PhD., Clinical Associate Professor, School of Medicine, Stanford University

President-Elect of NorCal HIMSS, Jim Bloedau, remarked that it was his favorite presentation of the day.

Paubox Nerf Basketball

We setup a Nerf Basketball game at our booth and as we’d discover, it was a resounding success. We originally got the idea from our friend Scott Nelson of Big Controls. Thanks Scott!

Nerf Basketball Playoffs

Paubox Nerf Basketball was so popular we had a three way playoff between Ryan Kelly, Sathyabama Gururajan, and Omid Tahernia.

Each finalist was given six shots. With the entire room hanging in suspense, Ryan Kelly edged out the field with 4 out of 6 six shots made. He took home the grand prize, a bottle of Glenfiddich 18, Single Malt Scotch Whisky. We both had ear-to-ear grins during the championship ceremony 🙂

Great job Ryan!
