The CIO Healthcare Summit partnered with mHealth Initiative for the 2009 and 2010 CIO Healthcare Summits.

    The CIO Healthcare Summit, April 3-6, 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona, is an opportunity for CIOs and leading technology executives to network and attend educational sessions in a relaxed, yet focused business setting. This year's agenda will focus on the following topics: cloud computing, electronic health records, health information exchange security, data security, employee retention, clinical innovation and creating a secure mobile healthcare environment.

    Peter Waegemann, VP, mHealth Initiative, will be presenting the thought-leadership session, "Winning or Losing: 2011 Challenges for CIOs" at the event. The session will discuss IT's role in attracting and maintaining patients, the role IT should play with regards to patients and staff, marketing through new technologies, dealing with Meaningful Use, and preparing for new technologies.

    Prior to joining mHealth Initiative, Waegemann served as chair of the Mobile Healthcare Alliance, the predecessor to mHealth, for two years. Since the 1980s, he has been a visionary and promoter of electronic medical record systems (EMRs), including founding and serving as CEO of the Medical Records Institute, a Boston-based applied research and educational clearinghouse, where he created its annual conference, Toward the Electronic Patient Record, which for 25 years promoted the vision of EMRs. He is considered an international leader in health informatics with a special interest in electronic patient record systems, standards, networking, mHealth, and the creation of the national information infrastructure. In 2007, Waegemann was cited as one of 20 outstanding people "who make healthcare better" by HealthLeaders.

    "I am excited to be working with mHealth Initiative and Peter Waegemann again for the 2011 CIO Healthcare Summit. Peter's immense knowledge of mHealth will be of great benefit to our attendees, all of whom want to use mobility to improve patient care and streamline operations," said Chris Li, Event Director, CIO Healthcare Summit.
