 Informatics Forum
Organizations as Application Service Providers 
Sold Out Event - Registration is Closed

As part of the Moving to an Enterprise Informatics Model series, the Oregon Chapter of HIMSS will host a panel featuring leaders from Portland area health systems discussing delivery organizations as application service providers.

Today, many large provider organizations are deploying their EHR instances to outside organizations through affiliate agreements and other legal structures, such as Epic’s “Community Connect”.  While this model can provide cost savings and a more complete patient record, it also produces unique planning, support and governance challenges which impact IT teams, Informaticists – and often more broadly throughout the host and affiliate sites.

Join colleagues from Oregon and Southern Washington as the panel share insights and lessons learned from their organizations' experiences as software and service providers. An audience Q&A session will follow.


Brandon Hotchkiss, KPHC (Epic) Regional Engagement Leader, Kaiser Permanente
Lisa Johnson, Vice President of Community Technologies, Providence St. Joseph Health
John Dunn, Vice President of Healthcare IT, OHSU
Scott Seibert, Population Health & Community Systems Lead, Legacy Health
