In this insurance industry, this may be a golden age of social media buzz about events.
Many people in the industry now know how to post to various social media networks from their cell phones, and they’re still new enough to social media to be enthusiastic about doing so.
America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the biggest trade group for health insurers, has attracted many avid social media users to AHIP Institute 2015, the annual meeting it’s holding this week in Nashville.
For a look at some of what attendees are posting about the event through one major social media service, Twitter, read on.
1. Karen Ignagni
Ignagni, the longtime president of AHIP, is leaving to take over as the chief executive officer (CEO) of EmblemHealth.
Many attendees tweeted about the standing ovation the crowd gave Ignagni during her last appearance at an AHIP annual meeting as head of AHIP.
Mark Ganz, the CEO of Cambia Health Solutions, quoted Dr. Suess when talking about her coming departure and Steve Sisko (@ShimCode) tweeted about it.
“‘Don’t cry because it’s over,’” Ganz said. “‘Smile because it happened.’”
