HIMSS TV, the video arm of HIMSS Media, launched last year at HIMSS18 — and now we’re coming back for HIMSS19 in Orlando next month.

First things first: This year, HIMSS TV will be hosted by Kate Milliken, an entrepreneur and patient advocate with some serious health IT chops of her own.

Kate will be hosting a range of guests from health system executives to startup CEOs, health IT pros at academic medical centers, the people driving hospital innovation -- not to mention HIMSS19 Social Media Ambassadors and Champions of Health as well as many Subject Matter Experts. Scroll down to the end of this story for a video introduction to our host.

HIMSS TV has announced a number of speakers who have joined its lineup of health IT experts who will be interviewed on-site during HIMSS19 in Orlando next month.

Aneesh Chopra, former chief technology officer of the United States and current president of CareJourney is booked for an interview, as is Glen Tullman, former CEO of Allscripts who currently oversees chronic disease management technology company Livongo.

Former four-term Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas, who is a long-time health IT proponent and the co-Chair of HIMSS State Advisory Roundtable will appear on HIMSSTV, as will Cynthia Green-Edwards, who is chief compliance officer for Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services and the 2018 HIMSS State Official of the Year.

Jim Shields, founder of Twist and Shout Media, will discuss plans to create the world’s first sitcom about HIPAA, an effort to increase awareness and compliance among healthcare workers. And Tom Skelton, CEO of Surescripts, will help us take a look at how technology can change prescribing in 2019.

Plenty more folks will be featured on the show: Aashima Gupta, director of global healthcare solutions at Google Cloud, will be one of a number of speakers talking about the landscape of opportunities and challenges women in the health IT world, as will Lygeia Ricciardi, chief transformation officer at Carium Technology Solutions and former director of consumer e-Health at ONC. Hospital innovation superstars Dr. John Halamka (Harvard Medical), Dr. Richard Milani (Ochsner Health System), and Dr. Ashish Atreja (Mount Sinai Health System) will all sit down to share insights and experiences.

Our team of editors and reporters will be on screen as well, including MobiHealthNews Editor-in-Chief Jonah Comstock and Associate Editors Laura Lovett and Dave Muoio.  From Healthcare IT News, Editor Mike Miliard and Editor-in-Chief Tom Sullivan will be on the air, along with the Healthcare Finance News team of Managing Editor Beth Sanborn, Senior Editor Susan Morse and Associate Editor Jeff Lagasse. 

You will see our reporters talking with industry luminaries and thought leaders at the news desk, conducting more in-depth conversations in a talk show-type setting and, of course, out on the show floor, as well as in hallways and sessions conducting roving-reporter style interviews.

HIMSS TV is a full-sized multimedia production set, so come see use live at the HIMSS TV Booth in the Outside Hall of Lobby C, Level 2.

And you can catch the broadcasts on HealthcareITNews.com, MobiHealthNews, Healthcare Finance News, HIMSS.tv, in the hotel rooms and in video monitors in the HIMSS Learning Lounge.
