New York, NY (Vocus) June 23, 2010 –
The Institute for Health Technology Transformation announced today the speakers and moderator for a panel entitled “Health Information Exchange: adoption barriers and the role of subsidization and meaningful use,” at the Institute’s Summer Health IT Summit focused on “Adoption, Implementation, and Meaningful Use,” taking place July 27-28th in Denver, Colorado at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center.
The presentation entitled, “Establishing a Health Information Exchange: adoption barriers and the role of subsidization and meaningful use” will highlight how regional providers are working together to enhance data sharing and interoperability of health information and to implement a capability for improving quality of care. This group of panelists will share their challenges and successes with adoption barriers for health information exchange (HIE) and moving toward meaningful use.
The panel will be moderated by John Moore, Managing Partner, Chilmark Research, and speakers include: Lisa Khorey, Director, Interoperability, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center; Phyllis Albritton, Executive Director, CORHIO; Mary Anne Leach, VP & Chief Information Officer, The Children’s Hospital; Brigadier General Robert Stall, President, Medina Hospital and Commander, 108th Training Command (USAR); Rick Hayes, VP of Business Development, InteliChart; and Brad Hawkins, VP of Clinical Experience, MEDSEEK.
“In its passage of the HITECH Act in early 2009, Congress made it clear that information exchange for care coordination is a primary goal to lower healthcare costs by minimizing duplicate testing, improve care delivery, quality and ultimately health outcomes,” said John Moore, Managing Partner, Chilmark Research. “Health Information Exchanges are absolutely critical to enable such information exchange across institutional boundaries.”
The Summer Health IT Summit is centered around “Adoption, Implementation, and Meaningful Use,” and brings together over 175 CIO’s, VP’s, and Directors of IT from hospitals, health systems, and larger physician practices.
