iHT2 Health IT Summit Preview: Three Hot Topics


Hi, I’m Steve Chu from Layered Tech. Next week I will be attending the iHT2 Health IT Summit in Austin, Texas along with Jeff Reich, Layered Tech’s Chief Risk Officer.

The Health IT Summit is one of several regional events conducted by the Institute for Health Technology Transformation (iHT2). We look forward to attending this summit and engaging in discussions about the rapid evolution of technology in the healthcare industry. Specifically, there are three main topics that we’re excited to hear perspectives on from both speakers and attendees.

Three Hot Topics for the iHT2 Health IT Summit

  1. Meaningful Use 2 and Interoperability - How will technology be leveraged to enhance interoperability? What steps are healthcare organizations taking to prepare for, and survive, audits?
  2. Accountable Care Organizations - How has the definition of an ACO evolved with the recent emergence of providers? What processes are being implemented for resource stewardship? What are effective data aggregation strategies? There are a lot of new players in this space, so it will be fascinating to find out what’s happening with these new companies coming to market.
  3. Telehealth - Telehealth applications need to be managed in a highly secure, HIPAA compliant fashion. In addition to the monetization models and tool sets, how are health-tech innovators addressing security and compliance?
