      2019 Summit Series - West Michigan

      2019 Summit Series, presented by Great Lakes Health Connect The barriers that stand between current state and optimal state of the healthcare system are complicated and numerous.  These barriers prevent organizations and providers from delivering, coordinating, and tracking patient care. By harnessing the power of technology and relationships, we can break down those barriers. Organizations, departments, teams, and individuals must create and exude a culture that rewards creativity, excellence, and flexibility. By connecting these cultures of care, we can achieve a fully sustainable and integrated healthcare ecosystem. These observations about the healthcare industry are what inspired the theme of the 2019 Summit Series … “Breaking down barriers – connecting cultures of healthcare.” Keynote Speakers Dave deBronkart e-Patient Dave, Author and Advocate Morning Keynote Carla Smith Former Executive Vice President of HIMSSLunch Speaker Dr. Joneigh Khaldun Chief Deputy Director for Health and Chief Medical Executive at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Closing Keynote Breakout Session Tracks Improving Quality and Value Through Health Information Technology Attendees will learn about the many different applications of Great Lakes Health Connect solutions and services.
