A series of virtual town hall meetings designed to bring together the healthcare technology management (HTM) and information technology (IT) communities is slated for 2015, with the first one scheduled this week. The complimentary meetings are presented by the CE-IT Community—a collaboration among AAMI, ACCE, and HIMSS.
Through the CE-IT town hall series, participants will learn about timely issues related to medical technology networking and interoperability, risk management, interdepartmental collaboration, and more.
Interested parties can register here to attend the first event of the year—a town hall panel discussion on “Future Trends of Healthcare Technology,” featuring Izabella Gieras (Huntington Memorial Hospital), Jennifer Jackson (Cedars-Sinai), Carol Davis-Smith (Kaiser Permanente), and Marcia Wylie (Scripps Health). The session will be held this Thursday, Jan. 29, from 12:00–1:30 pm EST. As always, the session will be moderated by Elliot Sloane, president of the Center for Healthcare Information Research & Policy.
With the evolution of medical technologies in recent years, healthcare has become much more integrated and interconnected, leading to increased collaboration among different types of healthcare professionals. The session will address topics such as medical device integration, standards, staffing models to support future needs, alarm management, consumer medical devices, medical device security, mobile health apps, and more.
The CE-IT Community plans to hold these other town halls throughout the year. (Clicking on a session will take you to the registration page for that session.)
