Executive Collaboration for Business, IT and Clinical Leaders

Innovative healthcare CXOs understand that a successful healthcare ecosystem requires collaboration from providers, payers, government and IT.   At the HTRA HTRAC Council Meeting - EAST, Business, IT and Clinical leaders from diverse organizations come together to engage in collaboration and brainstorming on the impact IT is having on the healthcare industry.  Some of the issues discussed are:


  • Informatics / Big Data – How can we create knowledge from our data and share it to improve decision making?
  • Reducing Cost of Care – How can IT investments & Care Coordination be used to reduce the cost of care?
  • Security  / Risk Management – How do we ensure data integrity, minimize breaches , provide secure access and protect our devices
  • Reimbursement- How is ACA affecting reimbursements and how can we  move from volume-based to value-based strategies
  • Data & the Cloud– How do we store & structure data to facilitate information sharing and interoperability?
  • Patient Engagement – How can we use IT to better engage our patients?
  • Mobility – How can we use mHealth and TeleMedicine to improve care?
  • ACOs – What is the role IT plays in our move to ACOs and performance-based pay?
  • Population Management – How can IT, Collaboration and Information Sharing support this
