The team returned to Honolulu this week from a successful CIO Healthcare Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona, and we’d like to extend a special thank you to all of the delegates and sponsors who participated in the event!

Highlights of this year’s agenda included: 

  • Dr. Charles Kennedy’s, VP Health IT, Wellpoint, National Health IT Policy Committee, keynote on the HITECH Act
  • The CIO Executive Visions Panels on improving patient care, moderated by Jack Santos, CIO Executive Strategist, Burton Group 
  • Steve Aylward’s, GM, Health & Life Sciences, Microsoft, presentation on solutions and technologies that enable better care and outcomes

The CIO Executive Think-tank sessions, which were new to this year’s summit agenda, allowed executives to have candid conversations  in a roundtable, sponsor-free environment. With no pre-determined discussion topics, executives were able to guide the conversation around the issues that were most important to them and their organizations. 

The next CIO Healthcare Summit will be held December 12-15, 2010. If you’re interested in participating in the event, please contact Nick Backhouse, Event Director, CIO Healthcare Summit at 808-694-3600 or nick.backhouse@cdmmedia.com.
