I’m planning on attending HIMSS 2011 in Orlando. If you’re a physician, make sure you don’t miss the Physician Executive Forum: In Pursuit of Meaningful Use of Health IT. Here are some more details (and some reasons why you may want to attend HIMSS 2011):
Meaningful use. Eligible hospitals. Eligible professionals. These are terms that you, as a physician executive, are aware of and need to fully understand. No matter your level of exposure to meaningful use, you realize it’s crucial to your health facilities’ future. The reality is that whether you are a physician leader in a hospital or an ambulatory environment, the implications of meaningful use will have a tremendous impact on how you deliver care and conduct your business.
HIMSS recognizes that you need insight into the issues and what they mean for you as a physician executive. We recognize that you want solutions for optimally adapting and responding to these changes to continue to be successful, while still doing what you and your medical team do best—delivering unsurpassed patient care. That is why we are holding our first-ever Physician Executive Forum at HIMSS11.
This event is unlike any other of its kind. The Physician Executive Forum is an exclusive gathering of medical executives from enterprise and ambulatory settings who have responsibility for ensuring that their organizations respond to current changes in the field, like meaningful use, and anticipate the next period of dynamic change such as the conversion to ICD-10.
The American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) are working together to get more physician executives to attend in 2011. I hope to see you there.
