|9:15 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.||Panel Session 1: Perspectives from the Point of Care
Health care is supposed to be about the patient. Technology is supposed to simplify our lives. But the lack of interoperable devices, systems and software can make health care technology a challenge for both the patient and care-giver. From data that won’t move from a handheld device to the EHR, to redundant testing and wasted time tangled up with technology, learn from clinicians, other care providers and patients themselves on how interoperability impacts their lives, and how the creation of a technology-enabled, connected health system could improve safety and enable better quality care for all.
Moderated by: Peter Pronovost, MD, PhD, Sr. Vice President for Patient Safety, Johns Hopkins

|10:50 a.m. – 12:05 p.m.||Panel Session 2: The Business Imperative for Interoperability
Hospitals and health care systems are where the rubber meets the road for medical interoperability. From their never-ending quest to improve patient care and safety, to the financial incentives to simplify and improve communications, the hospital environment has the most to gain from an interoperability health care ecosystem- and the most to lose if it doesn’t go right. Hear from leading hospital CEOs about their desire for medical interoperability to improve patient care and lower costs, and how they envision an interoperable future.
Moderated by: Glenn Tobin, PhD, CEO, Crimson, The Advisory Board Company
