“Start Me Up" Healthcare Conference: Where Healthcare CIOs, Entrepreneurs and Investors Meet
Date:5/21/2013

Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Healthcare industry leaders, health information technology startups, and investors will converge at the premier “Start Me Up” Emerging Healthcare Technology Conference, June 10 at the Fluno Center for Executive Education in Madison, Wisconsin. This new event is part of the 11th annual Digital Healthcare Conference 2013, a gathering of national healthcare leaders being held June 10-12 at the Fluno Center for Executive Education at the University of Wisconsin.

Funding for healthcare information technology (IT) grew dramatically in 2012 and is continuing to accelerate. There are tremendous opportunities for entrepreneurs to transform healthcare as the global health market is estimated at $6 trillion worldwide.

“Start Me Up” will include sessions on how healthcare technology startups and their investors can engage with hospital Chief Information Officers and their clinical colleagues; how to negotiate terms with a healthcare provider in getting a technology pilot up and running; and how large companies establish partnerships with third-party vendors. Among the presenters include CIOs of large healthcare institutions including Philip Loftus, VP & CIO Aurora Healthcare, Dave Lundal, VP & Regional CIO, St. Mary’s Hospital, Dean Health Systems and SSM Healthcare as well as Gene Thomas, CIO, Memorial Hospital - Gulfport.

“The big question is ‘Who pays for these things?’" said Promod Haque, a partner at Northwest Venture Partners. “If you are selling health care services to large enterprise providers, you have to convince them that there will be a fast ROI and then investors are interested. There is a general awareness among institutional and strategic corporate investors that this health vertical is very important going forward,” according to a story in VentureBeat.

The agenda also includes time for eight emerging health IT companies selected by an independent advisory board to give short presentations on their technology and how it improves healthcare delivery, quality, and safety.

Barry P. Chaiken, MD, Chair of the Digital Healthcare Conference, Past Chair of HIMSS and Chief Medical Information Officer, for enterprise software company Infor said, “As the healthcare marketplace works to adjust to changing reimbursement and the move from volume based reimbursement to value based reimbursement, organizations need technology innovations to help them survive this new reality.”

“Established and emerging information technology vendors are faced with many technical, and business challenges to partner and integrate with major electronic medical record developers," said Mike Klein,editorial director for WTN Media. "The “Start Me Up" conference will feature informative and very interactive discussions about how to develop and sell products for use by healthcare providers."

This premier event is produced by WTN Media in collaboration with WTN News begins at 10 a.m. Monday, June 10. You can learn more and register for the event at http://www.startuphit.com
