New York (PRWEB) July 9, 2008
The Fall Collaborative Communications Summit: Transforming Health Care through Health Information Technology will take place October 27-28, 2008 at the Sofitel Los Angeles.
This fall's opening Keynote will be presented by Marc Probst, Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Intermountain Healthcare located in Salt Lake City Utah. The presentation entitled "Success in the I.S. Game Requires the WHOLE TEAM" will provide a unique look into one of the nations most innovative user's of information technology. Marc will share his perspective on how Intermountain Healthcare has been able to truly leverage IT to continually deliver excellent patient care.
"Information Systems play a unique role in healthcare. Business systems provide the efficiencies and process improvements similar to most other industries. However, clinical systems on the surface do not appear to provide such direct benefit," said Marc Probst, CIO of Intermountain Health Care. "We could spend endless hours trying to debate the workflow, data access and process savings from clinical information systems - but the real benefit is in increased knowledge and relevant information in the hands of those providing the care. With improved information, better decisions can be made more quickly, improving care, reducing suffering and ultimately lowering the costs of that care."
