Mark your calendars! Our CEO, Jay Deady, will be bringing his extensive healthcare IT expertise and insight to a panel at the First Annual Digital Healthcare Innovation Summit, April 14, 10:30am–11:30am at The Intercontinental New York Barclay in New York.
About the Panel: The Hospital as Production Center: Holy Grail or Impossible Dream? Jay and other panelists will explore the complex, flawed, and inefficient processes that can put hospitalized patients at risk.
Jay will share how hospitals and health systems can leverage health information exchange (HIE), electronic health records (EHRs), clinical decision support, and other health IT systems to improve quality, safety, outcomes, and the cost effectiveness of care.
Brian Ascher, general partner at Venrock, one of the country’s premier venture capital firms, will moderate.
At the one-day Summit – sponsored by the International Business Forum – healthcare IT industry experts will share insights into how HIT will radically reshape the American health system across all settings, including the inpatient, ambulatory, pharmacy, and payer environments.
The Summit will feature keynote speakers Todd Park, chief technology officer of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Jonathan Bush, CEO of Athenahealth Inc., as well as presentations by other industry luminaries and leading adopters of healthcare information technology.
