New York, NY (PRWEB) August 6, 2007
The Fall Collaborative Communications Summit: Transforming Health Care through Health Information Technology will take place November 5-6, 2007 at the Peninsula Beverly Hills.
The Fall CCS: Transforming Health Care through Health Information Technology, is geared toward provider, healthcare system, government agency CIOs, CMIOs, CTOs, and VPs of IT. The summit is designed to help top-level executives, legislators, regulators and technologists come to grips with the swirling forces of technology change, policy development and changing business models. The CCS Experience has been designed with feedback by previous attendees and leaders from the healthcare industry addressing the most pressing issues surrounding health information technology.
Key themes for the Fall CCS include: convergence of the PHR-EHR, which organizations are key players in HIT, health information exchange, leading organizational change with information technology, key privacy and security considerations, as well as case studies and success stories highlighting HIT in practice.
"Most industries in America have used information technology to make their businesses more cost effective, more efficient and more productive -- and the truth of the matter is health care hasn't," President Bush said in his 2007 State of the Union.
John-David Lovelock of Gartner, a market-research firm, predicts that IT spending in health care will increase by an average of 4.7% per year between 2005 to 2010, the fastest growth-rate of any industry and well above the average of 3.7%. Poised for considerable IT growth, the healthcare industry must collaborate and communicate effectively if the benefits of HIT are to be realized for patients, providers, and payors alike. The CCS provides an innovative platform for senior executives from the healthcare community to truly collaborate, exchange ideas, and establish lasting relationships that will drive the adoption of health information technology.
Some of the in-depth case studies and presentations featured will include Harvard Medical School, Indian Health Service, HHS, Northrup Grumman, Wellspan Health, GE Healthcare, Department of Veterans Affairs, Erickson Retirement Communities, Jaxcare, St. Luke's Health System, Cisco Systems, Carespark, CalRHIO, Western Medical Associates, UCLA Medical Center, Florida Hospice of the Sun Coast, athenahealth, Eclipsys, Fortune Magazine, Allscripts and many more.
