More about the Workshop

As healthcare reform takes center stage this year, it is clear that Heathcare IT will play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of healthcare services both nationally and globally. Healthcare Informatics is a rapidly growing field that deals with the structure, acquisition and use of medical information. With the global boom in healthcare and quantum advancements in IT, medical informatics is already becoming an exciting career choice. However it is anticipated that not enough skilled healthcare informaticians will be available to fill the growing need.

While the current environment may be filled with uncertainties, CIOs are continually challenged to make definitive actions that cut spending on IT where possible and align IT around initiatives that run, grow and transform the business. CxOs and external influencers now expect IT to be a key differentiator to effectively enable care and business strategies. This workshop explores the challenges and actions that IT can take in the new uncertain environment. Even if you are an experienced IT manager, this 2-day intense workshop will provide you with in-depth exposure to the milieu of how medicine is practiced, the issues and challenges with electronic medical records, the impact of consumer driven health care using Internet, cell phones and social networking along with the how to reap maximum value for your healthcare IT enterprise architecture.

Speakers

The workshop will be taught by faculty members of Claremont Graduate University, Loma Linda University and leading practitioners from healthcare industry.
