No World Borders Uses Twitter for Live Updates from Two Leading Health Care Conferences

– No World Borders today announced that it will be providing live updates online from the floor of both the Octane Medical Device Forum in Newport Beach, CA and at the Healthcare IT Summit in Palm Springs.  The conferences this year will focus on the challenges and actions that Health IT executives can take in the new uncertain environment, and leading experts will present who are actively engaged in policy and advocacy at the national level.

This year’s conference promises to cover important HIPAA, HIT and ARRA related standards and economic stimulus issues, as health care payers and vendors grapple with new HIPAA guidelines, electronic health records (EHR), electronic medical records (EMR), and electronic personal health records (PHR). In addition, health care professionals from some camps are protesting in the streets outside the conference area.

No World Borders will provide live updates from the conference floor.
