Deploying Information Technology to Sustain Innovation within the Rapidly Changing Care Delivery Models: ACOs, Meaningful Use, Bundles, Medicaid, Personalized Care

Medical Informatics World 2013 will bring together industry leaders and decision makers in the fields of HIT, healthcare, biomedical sciences, life sciences, pharmaceuticals, informatics and IT for dynamic discussion on healthcare informatics, biomedical informatics, applied clinical informatics, and personalized medicine.  The two-day meeting will feature three concurrent tracks on 1) Provider-Payer-Pharma Cross-Industry Data Collaboration, 2) Coordinated Patient Care, Engagement and Empowerment and 3) Population Health Management, Segmentation and Stratification, as well as three in-depth half-day workshops.

Among the 50+ distinguished speakers presenting at Medical Informatics World 2013 will be:
