One of the metrics I often use, when thinking about conferences I attend, is how many interesting new people I interact with. The Health Hub at Social Media Week in New York, #smwhealth resulted in a smaller number of new people I interacted with, but a much higher quality of interactions.
Starting off the list is Alex Fair, @faircaremd. "Chief Instigator at FairCareMD, The 1st Open Healthcare Marketplace where Patients and Doctors can meet and agree on fees that are fair to both." He's fairly serious about tweeting from conferences and during the second half, we sat next to each other, shared a power outlet and various comments about the conference.
Next is Paulo Machado, @pjmachado. "Husband-Father-Friend-Passionate about driving the adoption of innovation that improves the healthcare delivery model." He was wearing a @reginaholliday jacket and did a lot of good tweeting as well.
Mike Painter, @paintmd "Senior Program Officer at RWJF" He did some good tweeting while @TedMedJay was on the stage. I only got a chance to meet him briefly in passing.
Then, there was Jerry Weinstein, @tummler10. "Cynical Idealist. Competitive Zen. AKA: Writer. Editor. Strategist. Producer. Certified Mediator." We did not get a chance to meet face to face, at least as far as I know. However, we did have some fairly interesting interactions on Twitter that I hope to follow up on.
A couple other people that I interacted briefly with, included @careplanners @elleehenry. I'm probably missing quite a few others, but these are the people that I remember particularly jumping out at me. Thanks for a great #smwhealth. Happy #ff everyone.
