I’m going to Malta as a HIMSS Europe eHealth Week Social Media Ambassador! Join My Co-Hosted Tweetchats!

I’ve been to cool places — Lisbon, Beijing, Zurich, London, Hong Kong, St. Petersburg — but I’ve always been fascinated by Malta, an island in the middle of the Mediterranean. Why? I’m a history buff. I’ve read about the Phoenicians, who sailed the Med 3000 years ago. I’ve read about the clash of civilizations, between Christian Europe and the Muslim empire. And I’ve read about World War II in the Mediterranean. In all of these accounts, Malta played dramatic and important roles.

From Wednesday to Friday, May 10-12, the annual eHealth Week Conference comes to Malta. I’ll be there, tweeting of course! In fact, please join one or both tweet chats I’m co-hosting.

The #MEQAPI tweetchat, with @stefanbuttigieg MD (also an eHealth Week Social Media Ambassador) and @MLoxton/@MEQAPI, occurs at 3PM Thursday, or 9PM Malta time. Thus, #MEQAPI occurs the evening after the first two full days of #eHealthWeek. The subject is what we can learn from European healthcare systems, health IT, and digital health history and experience. See below for questions/topics.

The #AskAvaility tweetchat (Provider Front-End Workflows: A Tweetchat), with @Availity (Mohammed Mansoor @elpmma) occurs Friday at 1PM EST (right after the noon #HITsm tweetchat), which is 7PM Malta time. The subject: again, workflow, though more specially, front-end workflow immediately affecting physician EHR/HIT users and their patients. Also see below for questions/topics.

If you’d like to prepare, I’d recommend taking a look at the following.
