HIMSS-CHIME Leadership Academy: Leading the Next Wave of Healthcare Transformation

Healthcare information technology professionals have been leading the way in implementing electronic health records, clinical informatics and analytics, and patient-centered care. But now healthcare is seeing disruption at every turn with the introduction of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, social networking platforms and wearable technology. Healthcare is exploring the potential for these technologies to make services more efficient, anticipate demand and tailor treatment. Patient experience is being translated into the patient ecosystem. “Always on” services and learning are becoming expected by patients and the healthcare workforce.

How are the best HIT executives reinventing their leadership in the face of digital transformation? How must they work with their executive peers and technology partners to create the climate to lead through the disruption of new technologies, increasing innovation and transformational change? In this programme, executive faculty will share their views on the challenges and opportunities for digital transformation and the implications for HIT leadership.
