Podcast: Dave Garets

NEW ORLEANS—Since time of the essence this week, I’m keeping this post short.

This is a fairly short, off-the-cuff interview with Dave Garets, president and CEO of HIMSS Analytics, kind of a teaser for Garets’ “Riffing on the Issues” session on Tuesday with Partners HealthCare CIO John Glaser at the annual HIMSS conference.

Of note, HIMSS Analytics is announing Tuesday that it is expanding its research of hospital IT capabilities into Canada, but you heard it here first. But that’s not all you’ll get out of this podcast. Garets gives his take on the state of the health IT industry, circa February 2007.

If I had more time, I’d include a detailed description of the contents of this podcast, but since I have deadlines to meet tonight, I’m going to pass. Click here to listen.

More recordings to come later this week.
