The Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative’s (SHIEC) Annual Conference takes place on August 19-22 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia. The agenda has been released, registration is open, and there are still sponsorship opportunities available! IHIE will be in attendance- here are some of the sessions we are looking forward to:
Dr. Don Rucker will once again give the opening keynote at the SHIEC Annual Conference. His presentation will focus on reshaping US healthcare – specifically providing a progress report on improving interoperability and usability of clinical information.
IHIE President and CEO, John Kansky, is participating in a panel with HIE Leaders David Kendrick and Laura Adams. They will discuss the future of HIEs including sustainability models and the requirements for success. The panel will be moderated by Melissa Kotrys, CEO of Health Current.
John Kansky is on another panel on Tuesday. This time he joins Laura Adams, Denise Hines, and Rim Cothren to discuss what HIEs can do about marketplace disruptions and the trajectory towards national interoperability of patient health data. The panel will be moderated by Mark Hagland, Editor-in-Chief for Healthcare Informatics.
We believe health information exchange progress is important to this country, so we will be at the panel featuring Margaret Donahue, MD, Kevin Larsen, MD, Chelsey Richards, MD, and Jude Soundar talking about the progress and promise of health information exchange on a federal level. This panel will be moderated by David Kendrick MD, CEO of My Health Access Network.
We’re looking forward to hearing the panel including the Sequoia Project discussing data and disaster response, moderated by Dick Thompson, Executive Director & CEO of Quality Health Network & SHIEC Board Past Chair.
Lastly, don’t miss the Wednesday panel with Dan Chavez, Phil Beckett, and Haley Sulser discussing the social determinants of health moderated by Jill Eisenstein, Executive Director of Rochester RHIO.
We can’t wait for the conference and hope to see you there!
