Tennessee's Department of Economic & Community Development...Invest in Tennessee

The 57th Annual/2010 Governor's Conference will be held September 16 - 17, 2010 in Nashville, TN.   I won't be able to attend as I will be on vacation, but a variety of informative sessions will be delivered. As a proud Tennessean, I can say, Tennessee is good for business, offering a beneficial labor environment, productive and educated work force, wonderful quality of life and wealth of technology resources. These factors combine to create a business climate that gives companies a winning edge in their long-term growth and profitability.
Since my blog is centered on Healthcare IT, I wanted to tie together this conference with the Nashville Medical Trade Center.  I blogged about this new center back in April.  I understand that since the initial announcement in April, there has been significant activities.  I wanted to share this video that highlighted some of these activities.

I am so happy to see the continued success of the interactive interoperability showcase that I helped create in 2004 and launch internationally in Europe and Asia. I was blessed to meet and introduce our Governor to the showcase for the first time in 2005. It is wonderful to see this key feature for HIMSS now have a permanent and flexible home at the Nashville Medical Trade Center.  I look forward to seeing the vision and passion continue to grow while creating many wonderful opportunities for the citizens in our great state.  I hope that I as founder and President of Serendipity Health can continue collaborating with stakeholders across the state of Tennessee to find ways to deploy connected healthcare to help improve the quality of care for us all.
