I haven’t been to Vegas for business since an AHIP conference a couple years ago … for a while I thought it was last year’s AHIP conference, then I remembered during the Vegas AHIP attendees were cautiously enthusiastic about health reform—and that couldn’t have been last year, when vitriol for the reform bill was running in rivers.

That’s why I love big conferences … things always seem to come to a head when you get the I.T. leaders, vendors and regulators in the same place at the same time. Last year, HIMSS was simply gaga about accountable care, and everyone was ready to jump aboard the CMS ship and sail onto a brighter future. The ACO rule had yet to be released, but that seemed to be a minor detail at the time.
