Smarter Health Seminars: The Innovator Series
The infraNET Project and the Education Program for Health
Informatics (EPHIP) are hosting a special seminar series entitled "Smarter
Health: The Innovator Series".
This series continues our examination of the dependencies
of the health system on IT, the evidence that IT can actually deliver
what is required to enable an efficient and effective enterprise, the
nature and magnitude of the investment required, and the strategic
pathway to ensure the desired deliverables.
The Innovator Series will present innovative
contributions of private industry and collaborations between private
industry and health organizations.
Presentations by industry and healthcare experts will be 50
minutes in duration, followed by a 30-40 minute facilitated discussion.
