Technology is fundamentally transforming how
Technology is fundamentally transforming how we conduct our business and live our daily lives. As defined by Office of the National Coordinator, the term “health information technology” (health IT) refers to the electronic systems health care professionals – and increasingly, patients – use to store, share, and analyze health information. Federal Healthcare IT initiatives across agencies, with large initiatives such as MHS GENESIS, the VA’s Electronic Health Records Modernization and various IT Modernization efforts, have taken a center stage in the health space. It is important to understand the “information technology for health” (IT for health) modernization is as important in enabling the American people and an increasingly mobile workforce to access high-quality digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device.
As IT modernization steams ahead, conversation should center on the operational, big picture goals: consolidating infrastructure, strengthening cybersecurity, leveraging cloud opportunities, and enhancing agility with standardized platforms and streamlined process.
The panelists invited to this event will examine Health IT and IT for Health modernization opportunities that present a path toward improving the effectiveness of IT solutions in the health space.
They will address:
- How is the government driving towards the future of Federal IT reform by leveraging a customer- and information-centric approaches, innovate with less, and builds for the future in a safe and secure manner?
- What challenges do organization face in standardizing and consolidating the health IT?
- What emerging technologies are at the forefront of the modernization efforts?
