TRANSFORMATIVE TECHNOLOGY: LEADING EXPERTS TO DISCUSS INNOVATIONS IMPACTING HEALTHCARE

The roundtable will focus on innovations impacting mobile/digital tools, clinical data and analytics

LAS VEGAS, Nevada– April 25, 2018 – The HealthCare Executive Group (HCEG) is partnering with the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI), the International Association of Innovation Professionals (IAOIP), and the Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) to host an Executive Leadership Roundtable at the ARIA Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, 1:40–4:30 p.m., PST. The roundtable event is part of the HLTH.co Future of Healthcare conference May 6-9 and will bring together national and global organizations.  This co-hosted roundtable will focus on the importance of innovation and technology including research on the challenges with adoption of mobile and digital tools, and guest author Dr. Sunnie Giles on a rapidly changing, consumer-driven healthcare landscape.

Given the ever-evolving and often-embattled nature of today’s healthcare industry, this forum offers attendees an excellent opportunity to learn about innovative strategies from thought leaders about improving health outcomes, while reducing cost by using cutting-edge technology and by tailoring specific approaches and investments to address the needs of patients and health-plan members.

At the same time, attendees will have the opportunity to network with other professionals and share their ideas about overcoming multiple challenges and opportunities such as those identified in the HCEG Top 10 ‐ specifically the adoption of mobile and digital tools that could potentially deliver better outcomes and create more engaged and empowered consumers, while improving and integrating interactions and work flows across the healthcare delivery system.

“The healthcare industry is at a pivotal point. On one hand we have new healthcare technologies evolving at a breakneck speed, and on the other hand, we have skyrocketing costs of care. There is an urgent need for solutions and our roundtable will bring together some of the best minds in healthcare. I am excited to hear from them and discuss their ideas,” said HCEG Executive Director Ferris Taylor.

According to CHI board member Lynn Hanessian, “This roundtable is an excellent opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn about effectively adopting technological changes that provide successful outcomes for patients and the organizations serving them. The small-°©‐group setting of the event will allow attendees to discuss strategic and transformational technologies that have become or are becoming essential parts of today’s healthcare systems.”

This event is open to participants of the HLTH.co conference including HCEG, IAOIP and CHI members. To register for this event, visit https://hceg.org/elr.
