1 Night, 1 Expert, 1 Memorable Dinner Experience

Develop best practices to build a comprehensive health IT strategy

Technology has a rich history in the healthcare industry of helping transform the practice of medicine, delivering better diagnoses and creating treatments that improve patient outcomes. Now, information technology is poised to lead the next transformation of healthcare. From delivery and quality of care to richer patient-provider communication, health IT is leading the way.

2014 has been a monumental year of health IT change and implementation. Now that the systems are in, how do you leverage your investment to enable your organization's successful transformation to an accountable healthcare organization? How do you do this while maintaining HIPAA compliance and alignment with meaningful use stage 2 guidelines?

SearchHealthIT.com is delivering our 2nd annual Health IT Leadership dinner series to address these timely and pertinent topics in a relaxed, after-work setting that's free of vendor influence and perfect for networking and idea exchange. Throughout this intimate event at one of the most upscale restaurants in the city, you’ll be surrounded by your true peers who represent leading local health organizations and engage in conversations that will help you identify the right technologies and implementation techniques to stay compliant with HIPAA and other forthcoming regulatory requirements.

In Santa Ana, we are thrilled to feature one of the industry's foremost health IT and compliance experts: Dr. Paul Tang -- VP, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer of Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Listen to and share ideas on how to translate the work of what seem to be "endless" compliance programs into truly strategic capabilities that empower your organizations to partner with patients in delivering better care at lower costs. Patient and physician engagement will be everything.
