More than 50 health care CIOs and many of their non-IT executive colleagues attended the 2014 IT-Enabled Population Health Management Summit in Washington, D.C. to discuss the evolving role of health care IT—and how organizations should approach it.
Our agenda focused on four components necessary in building a health system designed to address the needs of the new health care economy.
Here's what we're telling CIOs:
1. Prepare for next-generation clinical integration
Understand how to build an advanced network infrastructure for care transformation.
2. Learn how to navigate the evolving post-acute marketplace
Improve post-acute care performance and integration with new technologies.
3. Convert patient preference into durable system advantage
Capitalize on patients who are shopping for services based on factors like accessibility, price, and convenience.
4. Understand and adapt the scalable population health enterprise
Generate clinical and financial returns from cost-effective care management.
