Efforts to solve the most serious health care challenges, quality, cost, racial and gender disparities, or the implementation of “Obamacare”, rely on major investments in new health care IT.  

But can health care IT achieve what is expected of it?

 Three Simmons alumnae—all frontline IT executives— will address that question.  The CIO of Partners HealthCare, one of the leading health care institutions in the country, will moderate.

 You will hear:  War stories from the frontlines. Early successes in meeting IT challenges.

Lessons learned, sometimes the hard way.

Don’t miss this session on the cutting edge of health reform!
