SDForum is pleased to hold its first ever symposium on HealthCare IT in partnership with IBM on Tuesday, June 8, 2010. We will take a critical look at the key issues and opportunities facing the health care industry today as it struggles to catch up in its IT infrastructure and respond to new regulations.
While information technology is without a doubt a critical to the success of efficient and economic delivery of health care, the industry is lagging behind. While access to vital information is essential, health care providers also must conform to the requirements of HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
In Silicon Valley, a globally recognized heartland of innovation in technology, what's happening to respond to this need and what are the challenges involved in getting up to speed? Who are the stars, in what areas are we ahead and what's next in healthcare IT?
