The conference features two high-level keynote sessions, including an opening presentation from Harvard Medical's Dr. Robert Crone and Dr. John Helfrick on the explosive growth of medical tourism and what it means in terms of establishing global standards for patient care and health information exchange.
"Attendees will not only take away how medical tourism will impact their organizations, but that there's a real opportunity for improving healthcare quality internationally," said Dr. Helfrick.
C. Martin Harris, MD, FHIMSS, CIO and chairman, IT division, of Cleveland Clinic, will kick-off day two with a discussion on eEnabled medical practices. He will discuss the transformation process to the information age at Cleveland Clinic and its implications for medical practice in the short and long term.
