Test Your Health IQ

Georgia_HealthIQ

Each year Georgia exhibits at the world’s largest health IT gathering: the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference. The Hospital Management Systems Society (that later became HIMSS) was in fact founded at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Today, HIMSS is an organization made up of healthcare providers and technology suppliers (vendors) with chapters across the nation.

This year we wanted to create a fun and interactive means of educating tradeshow attendees about the HIT assets that Georgia has to offer. The idea for a Health IQ quiz was born. Participants were able to take the quiz on any desktop or mobile device of their preference, as well as share scores on their favorite social media channels. Winners had the potential to win a getaway in Savannah, Georgia or a year’s supply of Coca-Cola products.

A big thanks to Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, BrightWhistle, InterContinental Hotels Group and Metro Atlanta Chamber for helping us pull the whole quiz together!

While the tradeshow and contest are over, you may still enjoy testing your health IQ knowledge. Have you been eating your Georgia Peaches? Give it a try here – Georgia.org/HealthIQ
