Event Recap: Dig South, ATA, and Collision Conference

By John Riney,


Finally got a bit of time to catch my breath and recap the last couple events. PokitDok's spring conference season has been a bit of a killer.

First off was Dig South 2015 right here in Charleston, SC. I'm an engineer and a life-long Charlestonian, so any effort to elevate the tech scene here in the Holy City is good news to me. Now, admittedly, Dig South isn't mainly tech focused - my take was that it was very heavily focused on marketing, design, and startup funding, but I think it's a good idea to make an appearance at the major events in town.

PD Data Scientist Dr. Denise Gosnell participated in a panel entitled "Healthy Choices: New Options in Consumer-Centric Healthcare Platforms and Apps". She described her vision for the future of digital healthcare, as well as ways that data science techniques will lead to new insights and user experiences.


Then it was off to Los Angeles for the American Telemedicine Association's 2015 conference. At first glance, we seemed to be an odd fit, among the booths selling video carts, diagnostic equipment, and various telemed apps. We actually make a lot of sense in telemedicine, though - from doing eligibility checks to filing claims at the end of the visit (in the increasing number of states that offer reimbursement for telemedicine visits), companies like Doctor On Demand and HealthiestYou demonstrate that we have a lot to offer in the telemed space. Not to mention, we have a very cool booth:


Note for future conferences: if you get the cheaper lead tracking device (basically a scanner for noting who stops by your booth by scanning their badge), what you get is a rather silly looking device, tethered to five feet of curly cable, that emits a long scroll on thermal receipt paper. At least our booth was popular!


While we were hard at work in the City of Angels, the rest of the team was peddling all things PokitDok in the City of Sin. Adam Grant, our SVP of Customer Success and Natalie Cann, our VP of Marketing, made a splash with investors and prospects in the START section of the Collision Conference in Las Vegas. Eight thousand entrepreneurs, tech luminaries and investors convened for what was pegged as "A Grand Conclave of Tech's High Priests" by the New York times. Our fearless leader and CEO, Lisa Maki and SVP of Business Development, David George stood by for important meetings and 'collisions' with the A crowd.


All told, it was a pretty exhausting few weeks for the team, but well worth it!
