Our 4th year meeting online in social VR during the largest annual health IT conference! I (Chuck Webster, MD, MSIE, MSIS, @wareFLO on Twitter) have been attending and presenting at HIMSS conferences since 1994. I was a HIMSS Social Media Ambassador for all six years of the program. My favorite activity at HIMSS has always been informal BOF (Birds Of a Feather) meetups, which is exactly the format and vibe of our weekly Health Systems Chat in Social VR experience! (If you encounter this landing page on the web, please click on “Health Systems Chat” to the left of this text and subscribe! And scroll down to watch a musical video tour of the #HIMSS21 Funcopter!) Grab your (or your son's or daughter’s) Oculus Quest and join us online in social VR, floating above the Las Vegas Strip, six hours a day during HIMSS21! In addition to any-and-all health IT topics, we'll have a special areas devoted to my favorite interests: #HIMSSworkflow (All purposeful human activity relies on workflow!), #HIMSSsustainability (climate, carbon, water, pollution, circular economy), #HIMSSmakers (3D printing, patient & clinical makers), & #HIMSSvr (virtual reality in healthcare) or #SocialVR (meeting online in shared 3D spaces, like this event!)

This informal online meetup is unaffiliated with HIMSS, but we hope you'll attend both and share what you learn and experience!
