What topics do leaders look forward to discussing at CHIME21? Liz Johnson, Aaron Miri, Buddy Hickman and others share their perspectives on what they believe will be the hot topics, and why getting together in person is so important to them.
Despite an increased focus on patient experience, “We haven’t moved the needle much,” said Ed Marx and Cris Ross, who hope to change that by sharing lessons learned from their own healthcare journeys, and insights from recent discussions.
Unlike in years past, the topic that seemed to resonate most with CIOs and other healthcare IT leaders didn’t involve technology or budgets, but rather, those who use it to provide care, says Kate Gamble.
The lines between IT, clinical, and operations have blurred, and if leaders don’t take the time to understand the needs and challenges of other departments, and work together to solve them, “we’ll become irrelevant,” says Ed Marx.
If a CIO or other leader is faced with an unplanned absence, the last thing you or your team wants to think about is who’s in charge of what, says Ed Marx, who talks about the “matrix” that helped provide guidance at Cleveland Clinic during his recent illness.
