Introduction & Overview

States are coordinating major initiatives including data governance and interoperability, Medicaid modernization, MMIS re-procurement, HIX operations, payment reform, population health, program integrity as well as data privacy, security, and compliance issues at many levels.

At the same time, the shift towards modularity, SaaS and cloud computing are helping to shape IT organizations to be more responsive to the needs of policy and administration leadership. Emerging and potentially disruptive technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence are also being piloted in Medicaid which has the potential to yield benefits beyond process automation and interoperability and potentially underpin the next phase of HHS innovation.

The 2019 State Healthcare IT Connect Summit marks the 10th anniversary of the program. The conference has grown and evolved into an important national venue for public and private sector thought leaders to share ideas and benchmark implementation strategies of State Health IT Systems.

The meeting comprises keynotes, keynote panels, collaborative networking roundtables, workshops, focus groups the Connect Exhibition and breakouts assigned to 6 separate tracks (as below).
