The healthcare landscape is drastically changing due to health IT, and the CCS developed a panel led by elite healthcare minds to explore this very topic. The panel, entitled The HIT Landscape: Who Are the Major Players and How Can Your Organization Work With Them?, will take place the morning of Tuesday, Nov. 6.

The session is designed to cover the evolution of and transition to a successful and widespread adoption of Health Information Technology, which is typically a massive undertaking that requires the collaboration of private, non-profit and government organizations. The panelists will offer an overview and perspective from each group addressing how they are currently working together and what needs to be done in the future.

"In the confluence of several significant trends -- including technological improvements, clinical information standards, spiraling increases in the cost of care, and federal leadership -- solutions that enable clinical data sharing have emerged as budget priorities in the plans of healthcare organizations across the country," said Medicity CEO and Chairman J. Kipp Lassetter, MD.

"This conference is an opportunity for me to share Medicity's experience with such customers as the Delaware Health Information Network and CalRHIO."

The panel will be moderated by Brad Hunter, who is the Director of Technology Solutions for AHA Solutions, a subsidiary of the American Hospital Association. The three panelists offering unique and varying perspectives include: Janet Marchibroda, the CEO of eHealth Initiative and the eHealth Initiative Foundation; Lucinda Ehnes, the Director of the California Department of Managed Healthcare; and the CEO and Chairman of Medicity, J.
