Connecting Michigan for Health Conference Celebrates Breakthroughs in Health Information Technology

Connecting Michigan for Health Conference Celebrates Breakthroughs in Health Information Technology

Registration now open for tenth annual conference

Lansing, MI, May 08, 2018 – For more than ten years, the Connecting Michigan for Health conference has showcased thought leaders and accomplishments from across the health information technology community. This year brings a special focus on the maturity and availability of technology today that can improve healthcare business processes across the state.

Join Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) for Connecting Michigan for Health X: BREAKTHROUGH, at the Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan, June 6-8, 2018. Registration is now open at www.connectingmichigan.net.

“Statewide health information exchange has achieved critical mass as millions of messages pass through the statewide network daily,” said Tim Pletcher, Executive Director, MiHIN. “The exchange of health information enables healthcare providers to better coordinate care for patients.”

The theme for this year’s tenth anniversary conference “Connecting Michigan for Health X: BREAKTHROUGH” was designed to capture this transformational period in healthcare and its possibilities.

Over the last ten years, health information has grown from yesterday’s promise of the secure transfer of health information to today’s critical infrastructure functioning dependably each day to strengthen ties between patients and their care teams, to track medications, and to help reduce burdens on healthcare professionals.

“This year, new tools to simplify, automate, and gain immediate visibility into healthcare events build on the existing foundation,” continues Pletcher. “While the best is yet to come, people across Michigan should be proud of what our organizations have accomplished together.”

What else can health information exchange help us accomplish? This is the question speakers and attendees at Connecting Michigan for Health X will be taking on.

Additional information on the event, including a conference agenda, is available on the conference website at www.connectingmichigan.net.
