Impact of Health IT Regulations on Industry

Tuesday, October 2, 2012
9:15 am – 10:30 am
Panel Location: 160A 


Healthcare decision-makers are increasingly prioritizing Health IT, often at the expense of other budgets and even impacting the purchasing process of non-IT products. This poses a challenge for many medical device companies with limited Health IT experience or with a lack of familiarity with this rapidly evolving space. However, this also presents an opportunity for companies to use a forward-looking IT alignment strategy as a competitive advantage. Our panelists will highlight key examples of success and outline some demonstrated best practices.
