Innovations in Health Information Exchange: Moving Beyond Science Fairs to Sustainable Value Michael Matthews, CEO MedVirginia Stephania Griffin, Privacy Officer, Veterans Health Administration
Over the past decade, a number of demonstrations and pilots add to the wealth of evidence of the impact of health IT and HIE. Yet, HIE is far too often viewed as optional or discretionary rather than as a standard of care. Discussed will be very practical examples of production-level HIE that are bringing clinical and financial value to stakeholders, along with a framework for how to advance adoption and innovation on a much broader scale..

The Creation of a Beacon Community
The 2011 State Healthcare IT Connect Summit examines the role of state health IT modernization and transformation at the intersection of HITECH and State Health Reform. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (ARRA/HITECH) are promoting health IT to enable safe, affordable, high quality care. Health IT has the potential to transform nearly every aspect of healthcare delivery, allowing providers to have comprehensive, intuitive, high-quality patient information at their fingertips to make the right decisions for patient care, giving states better insight into public health, and reducing costs associated with high risk populations.
What you can expect
At the summit, policymakers and leading HIT strategists will provide critical insights into state health IT's function at the intersection of HITECH and health reform. Administrators of leading edge Accountable Care Organization pilots and the associated technology infrastructures will present their experiences, and health IT experts will look at the developing role of statewide health information exchange and Regional Extension Centers as the supporting infrastructure for quality improvements and reform.
Immersed in this intensive learning experience you will examine innovative strategies and best practice for managing and implementing information technology in the new transformed healthcare. You will leave the program ready to overcome barriers to change and improve the overall performance of your organization.
