I finally gave up on the idea of sleeping about 3 a.m. this morning in Las Vegas. My body clock is all out of whack, and my mind is buzzing with all the challenges of covering HIMSS16, as well as all I’m expecting to learn, over the next four days.

This will be my 20th HIMSS conference, as best as I can tell. My first was in Atlanta in 1996, and each one has its own special kind of exhaustion. I’ve been on the media side, the HIMSS side (in 2003, when I was with the organization as director of communications) and then with CHIME at the CIO Forum. Over this stretch, I’ve missed only one HIMSS event.
