It’s official! Formstack will be at HIMSS 2021

You may remember that last year, we had a great conversation lined up for HIMSS with Formstack customer, AdventHealth. While we were able to take our discussion online, we were sad to miss out on the hustle and bustle of the conference season. 

Check It Out: Watch our full conversation with Kevin Howell of AdventHealth to learn more about securely digitizing your healthcare workflows.

We’re excited that 2021 is going to be different. It’s no surprise that this year’s HIMSS theme is “Be the change.” HIMSS 2021 is going to be a large and jam-packed event, so we’ve compiled these tips to help you get the most out of your attendance. 

Aside from stopping by the Formstack booth (#C134), here are a few things you can do to have your most successful HIMSS yet.

Bring Your Walking Shoes

The heart and soul of the HIMSS event is the Exhibition Floor. Each year, more than 1,000 vendors set up shop to share the latest advancements in technology and innovation. HIMSS has added a very useful feature to their exhibitor map that lets you search for vendors by booth size, type, hall, and pavilion. 

You might think I’m joking when I say, “bring your walking shoes.” I’m not. If you’re planning to network around the Exhibition Floor, you’ll likely log quite a few steps. Make sure you’re prepared by dressing comfortably and breaking down the pavilion into sections—you don’t have to knock it all out in one go. 

Schedule Time to Meet with Contacts

After a year of virtual events and Zoom calls, you have likely met new people in your industry who you’ve never had the chance to see in person. Reach out to your account representatives, partners, and customers to schedule a time to chat. These folks are probably already planning parties and happy hours or speaking on panels. Talk to the people you know you want to hear from so you can pencil them into your calendar first before making additional plans.  

Learn Something New

If your ticket to HIMSS this year means manning a booth on the exhibition floor, you may be limited on when you’re able to leave for a session. Consider making a schedule for who will be at the booth and when. This will help you squeeze in a session where possible. If you’re flying solo in the exhibition hall, your slowest time will be first thing in the morning and towards the end of the day. 

The sheer number of sessions can be overwhelming, so rather than going through every single page of the schedule, use the search function to look up terms associated with topics you’re interested in learning more about. To get you started, some search terms we’re interested in this year are patient empowerment, patient data access, APIs, data security, and telehealth.

Here are some interesting sessions from this year’s lineup.

Meet New People

HIMSS is a great place for networking. One of the key takeaways from my first HIMSS experience was that I didn’t take advantage of enough networking opportunities. Here are a few ways to meet new people at this year’s HIMSS.

  1. Scheduled Networking Events: HIMSS hosts after-hours receptions for networking. These are events with an additional cost (around $40–$75) where you can interact with healthcare professionals who have similar interests to you. After my first HIMSS, I always made a point of attending the Millennials or Women in Health IT receptions when I could.
  2. Company Parties: As you interact with organizations on the exhibition floor, you’ll likely get invited to happy hours at their booth or after-hours parties at local restaurants. These are great opportunities to learn how these organizations' tools can support your company and meet other businesses with similar needs and problems.
  3. Networking Areas: HIMSS provides several networking areas where you can sit and interact with your peers. Some of these locations will be accompanied by educational sessions and Q&As to spark discussion amongst attendees.

Tell Us You’re Coming

Make sure to follow @Formstack on Twitter and tweet us using the hashtag #HIMSS21. We’ll be sharing any special events, demos, and further details during our panel discussion with Healthgrades. Companies are already taking to Twitter to promote their booths, speaking sessions, and other activities. LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram are all great ways to interact and keep a pulse on what’s going on throughout the week.

Come Find Formstack 

This year at HIMSS, you can hear from us during our panel session, The Patient Experience: Informed and Reimagined. On Wednesday, August 11, at 9:45 a.m., Formstack’s Kathryn Loheide and Heathgrades’ Brad Wensel will be discussing how providers can create personalized patient experiences with data analytics and use that information to take action. 


If you’d like to meet with a member of our team during HIMSS, you can find us at Booth #C134. We hope to see you there!

Talk to the people you know you want to hear from so you can pencil them into your calendar first before making additional plans.  

Learn Something New

If your ticket to HIMSS this year means manning a booth on the exhibition floor, you may be limited on when you’re able to leave for a session. Consider making a schedule for who will be at the booth and when. This will help you squeeze in a session where possible. If you’re flying solo in the exhibition hall, your slowest time will be first thing in the morning and towards the end of the day. 

The sheer number of sessions can be overwhelming, so rather than going through every single page of the schedule, use the search function to look up terms associated with topics you’re interested in learning more about. To get you started, some search terms we’re interested in this year are patient empowerment, patient data access, APIs, data security, and telehealth.

Here are some interesting sessions from this year’s lineup.

Meet New People

HIMSS is a great place for networking. One of the key takeaways from my first HIMSS experience was that I didn’t take advantage of enough networking opportunities. Here are a few ways to meet new people at this year’s HIMSS.

  1. Scheduled Networking Events: HIMSS hosts after-hours receptions for networking. These are events with an additional cost (around $40–$75) where you can interact with healthcare professionals who have similar interests to you. After my first HIMSS, I always made a point of attending the Millennials or Women in Health IT receptions when I could.
  2. Company Parties: As you interact with organizations on the exhibition floor, you’ll likely get invited to happy hours at their booth or after-hours parties at local restaurants. These are great opportunities to learn how these organizations' tools can support your company and meet other businesses with similar needs and problems.
  3. Networking Areas: HIMSS provides several networking areas where you can sit and interact with your peers. Some of these locations will be accompanied by educational sessions and Q&As to spark discussion amongst attendees.

Tell Us You’re Coming

Make sure to follow @Formstack on Twitter and tweet us using the hashtag #HIMSS21. We’ll be sharing any special events, demos, and further details during our panel discussion with Healthgrades. Companies are already taking to Twitter to promote their booths, speaking sessions, and other activities. LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram are all great ways to interact and keep a pulse on what’s going on throughout the week.

Come Find Formstack 

This year at HIMSS, you can hear from us during our panel session, The Patient Experience: Informed and Reimagined. On Wednesday, August 11, at 9:45 a.m., Formstack’s Kathryn Loheide and Heathgrades’ Brad Wensel will be discussing how providers can create personalized patient experiences with data analytics and use that information to take action. 


If you’d like to meet with a member of our team during HIMSS, you can find us at Booth #C134. We hope to see you there!

It’s official! Formstack will be at HIMSS 2021

You may remember that last year, we had a great conversation lined up for HIMSS with Formstack customer, AdventHealth. While we were able to take our discussion online, we were sad to miss out on the hustle and bustle of the conference season. 

Check It Out: Watch our full conversation with Kevin Howell of AdventHealth to learn more about securely digitizing your healthcare workflows.

We’re excited that 2021 is going to be different. It’s no surprise that this year’s HIMSS theme is “Be the change.” HIMSS 2021 is going to be a large and jam-packed event, so we’ve compiled these tips to help you get the most out of your attendance. 

Aside from stopping by the Formstack booth (#C134), here are a few things you can do to have your most successful HIMSS yet.

Bring Your Walking Shoes

The heart and soul of the HIMSS event is the Exhibition Floor. Each year, more than 1,000 vendors set up shop to share the latest advancements in technology and innovation. HIMSS has added a very useful feature to their exhibitor map that lets you search for vendors by booth size, type, hall, and pavilion. 

You might think I’m joking when I say, “bring your walking shoes.” I’m not. If you’re planning to network around the Exhibition Floor, you’ll likely log quite a few steps. Make sure you’re prepared by dressing comfortably and breaking down the pavilion into sections—you don’t have to knock it all out in one go.
