Exceptional Leaders Transforming Healthcare: Change Leadership

Healthcare continues to experience an accelerated rate of complex change, and healthcare IT executives are facing the challenges of leading their organizations and teams to achieve new goals at a faster pace than ever. Healthcare organizations are setting new strategies to succeed in this demanding environment, and the need for health IT executives to be true change leaders has never been more acute.  

John Kotter, whose work has guided successful change management practices across industries for decades, has recently turned to focusing on the critical need for effective change leaders.  He has defined the challenge this way:

The world, as we all know, doesn’t do much change leadership, since change leadership is associated with the bigger leaps that we have to make, associated with windows of opportunity that are coming at us faster, staying open less time, bigger hazards and bullets coming at us faster, so you really have to make a larger leap at a faster speed.
John Kotter

Change leadership for HIT executives involves not only leading the way through dynamic and challenging changes in technology and cybersecurity, but also calls on us as leaders to bring new ideas and innovation to our healthcare organizations. This often requires us to assist our colleagues and teams to see a great new vision for the future and to effectively usher in improvements and new capabilities.

Our CHIME-HIMSS 2017 CIO Forum will address critical areas of health IT executive change leadership.  Please join us to hear from nationally-recognized faculty while reflecting on ways to lead your organizations through the increasing challenges ahead.

Overall Forum Learning Objectives:

  • Review current trends, threats and responses needed to maintain an effective cybersecurity capability
  • Identify the skills health IT executives need to continue to lead change with other members of the C Suite

Opening KeynoteTHE ART OF DECEPTION: How Hackers and Con Artists Manipulate You and What You Can Do About It

People are the weakest security link. They can be manipulated or influenced into unknowingly helping hackers break into their organization’s computers. You’ll learn how easily you can be an unsuspecting victim who can be manipulated into handing over the keys the kingdom, if you haven’t done so already. Kevin Mitnick will entertain and educate you by performing his "live technology magic show" of the latest hacking techniques. You just might realize that you—like almost everyone else on the planet—have a misplaced reliance on security technology, which has now become ineffective against a motivated hacker using a technique called "social engineering."


Social engineering is a technique used by hackers and con artists that leverages your tendency to trust. Trust is a truly noble human characteristic; however, in terms of personal and organizational security, it’s also a significant weakness because trust can be exploited. Kevin is the worldwide authority on social engineering and constantly improves and updates this highly acclaimed "security awareness" presentation with the latest threats and risks most people don’t even know exist.


You’ll learn how to detect manipulation and take steps to protect yourself and your organization. Gain the power to think defensively.


Learning Objectives:
  • Identify the latest hacking techniques and discuss how healthcare IT leaders can apply these methods to help keep patient data safe
  • Discuss issues related to information security and identify the most overlooked weaknesses
  • Explain how to increase your security awareness to prevent future attacks
Speaker: Kevin Mitnick, World’s Most Famous Hacker & Security Consultant to Fortune 500 & Global Governments

Health care executives are faced with major changes as they are addressing the fast pace of change in optimizing EMRs, improving workflow, achieving quality measure targets and reducing costs.

A practicing pediatrician as well as a technology innovator, Dr. Selanikio will talk about some of the immense challenges providers face in retooling their business models to meet the demands of a value-based delivery system. Importantly, he’ll examine the role information technology plays in helping providers delivery high-quality, low-cost care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the ways in which innovative technologies are useful in solving everyday healthcare delivery problems
  • Discuss the challenges for IT Leaders in evaluating the usefulness and applicability of these new technologies in their organizations
