Global Digital Maturity in Healthcare: From Chile to New Zealand and Everywhere in Between

11:00am - 11:45am Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


HIMSS is committed to solving healthcare problems on a global level. Dr. Charles Alessi, Chief Clinical Officer at HIMSS, has travelled the world with a clear mission to improve health through information and technology. He has found that although we often share similar challenges worldwide, we have different ways of addressing them. How are our colleagues from Europe, Asia or Latin America dealing with some of the most prominent challenges we all face such as ageing populations, the rise of chronic diseases or geographical displacements? Dr. Alessi will share best practices and innovative, yet pragmatic solutions and approaches for healthcare providers across the globe.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn about the use of information and technology in health with best practice examples from across the globe, that will help you to ensure better quality patient safety and care
  • See how other countries are achieving digital excellency and learn how to build your own IT roadmap and implementation strategy that is meaningful to your national/regional settings
  • Be at the forefront of digital health developments and next steps throughout the world
