Health IT Innovation & Executive Collaboration for Chief Medical Information Officers (CMIO'S)
The Annual HealthTech Council Meeting brings together Health IT executives to discuss strategies, best practices and technologies critical to their success. With no trade-show floor and a focus on true peer-to-peer collaboration and networking, executives experience a highly interactive environment where they are not only absorbing knowledge but actively involved in creating strategies which can be taken back to their respective organizations and immediately implemented.

The application of Information Technology to the healthcare industry has the potential to completely transform healthcare by exponentially improving the quality of care that patients receive while creating sustainable, long-term efficiencies that will save billions of dollars. To meet this challenging-yet-attainable goal, it is imperative for executive Health IT stakeholders to engage in visionary, forward looking dialogue in order to
    •    (a) understand and anticipate the needs of clinicians, patients and business users,
    •    (b) discuss how IT can meet these needs and
    •    (c) develop a common vision and strategic direction for the future of healthcare.

The HealthTech Council Meeting brings together Health IT executives for peer-to-peer collaboration, information exchange, and networking focused on the most important, high-impact issues for true transformation of the healthcare community. Through interactive sessions, boardroom meetings, think tanks and case studies, executive attendees will share knowledge and strategies on how technologies, processes and policies must be modernized to usher in a new era of healthcare.
HealthTech is creating a common vision for the future of healthcare.

As a research-based organization, the content and curriculum of all HealthTech activities is derived from real-time research conducted with Health IT professionals from health care providers, industry, academia and the government. This approach ensures that HealthTech continually stays on the forefront of mandates, requirements, technologies and the business needs that are most important to the Health IT Community. Research findings are shared at the annual HealthTech HealthIT Council Meeting, smaller nationwide HealthTech events held throughout the year, and in various HealthTech publications including blogs and research briefs.
HealthTech is a sister organization to the well known and widely respected Government Technology Research Alliance (GTRA), a 10,000+ member organization serving the government IT community by providing executive-level opportunities for collaboration and the exchange of best practices and lessons learned in areas such as information sharing, enterprise architecture, cyber security and infrastructure modernization. Through it’s close relationship with executives at the White House, Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, GTRA leadership quickly identified a need for targeted, focused dialogue to support the needs of the Health IT community. Using their experience and proven track in bringing together world-class thought leaders, GTRA executives launched the HealthTech community in 2011, with the mission of providing high impact forums for executive level collaboration and information exchange on technology issues facing the Health Care community.
