"In this webinar, David Delaney, M.D., Global Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of SAP Health, will examine where healthcare providers perceive they are in their digital transformations today, the obstacles they’re facing, the potholes they need to fix in their own infrastructures, best practices, and personnel training before they can roar ahead into the future.
Dr. Delaney will be joined by Mercy and Florida Hospital who will speak to where they are in their own digital transformations and provide examples of how they have been able to develop and scale new digital products. They will share their critical success factors towards digital transformation, provide advice on how to gain management support, and describe how they overcame their own challenges."Find out more »
"This webinar is a one hour event to help answer questions about opportunities in the new clinical informatics fellowship. With the recent ACGME accreditation of a two-year fellowship at many programs around the country, many questions remain about the current state of the fellowship and the future.
The ACGME describes the clinical informatics specialty as 'the subspecialty of all medical specialties that transforms health care by analyzing, designing, implementing, and evaluating information and communication systems to improve patient care, enhance access to care, advance individual and population health outcomes, and strengthen the clinician-patient relationship.' We would like to use this time to answer questions about who we are, what the fellowships entail around the country through a panel discussion, what are possibilities after the fellowship, and how can individuals join the new subspecialty."
