Healthcare information technology professionals have been leading the way in implementing electronic health records, clinical informatics and analytics and patient-centered care. But now healthcare is seeing disruption at every turn with the introduction of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, social networking platforms and wearable technology. What will this quantum change mean to healthcare and what can HIT executives do to direct their organizations into effective adoption and use of these powerful new capabilities? Join us at the CHIME/HIMSS CIO Forum to explore the potential for these new technologies and to understand the impact and challenges that the transformation may bring. We will be discussing how we as leaders can find ways to continue to keep our organizations on track despite the disruption and to partner with others to address and lead the next wave of transformation.

Learning Objectives

  • Investigate the new frontiers of Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, the Internet of Things and the connections between them that will transform care.
  • Consider ways HIT leaders can be more engaged and influential in creating and delivering on digital strategies for our organizations and for healthcare as a whole
  • Describe how the human side of change must be addressed to adopt digital capabilities effectively
