CSE Community Partners for Health IT Leadership Summit
In a continuing the effort to raise CSE’s profile in the area of Health Information Technology, I am pleased to announce our partnership with the Health IT Leadership Summit, which will take place at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Nov. 12th, 2013. Now in its fourth year, the Summit brings together leaders from across the healthcare continuum to discuss how the industry can drive innovation to enable better healthcare delivery at lower costs to more people. Supported by a founding partnership that includes the Georgia Department of Economic Development, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Technology Association of Georgia, the event will offer attendees a full day of informational sessions, innovative exhibits and networking opportunities centered around the theme of “Technology’s Role in Revolutionizing Healthcare.” Key presentation topics will focus on new care paradigms, patient-centered healthcare and enabling technologies.
