Connecting Michigan for Health

CONFERENCE AT THE LANSING CENTER – JUNE 7-9, 2017

ABOUT CONNECTING MICHIGAN FOR HEALTH

For nearly a decade, Connecting Michigan for Health has brought together leading voices in the healthcare community to discuss ways to work together and improve care through better health information sharing. Policies and innovations take center stage, as speakers and attendees look at successes and challenges regarding health information exchange in Michigan and around the country. This year’s theme is “Connecting healthcare. Relieving burdens. Improving health.”

 

From state and federal governments to individual physician, from health insurance plans to patients: everyone has a seat at Connecting Michigan. Each of us has a voice and a role in continuing the progress our state has made to transform healthcare, and that fact is never lost at the conference.

 

Connecting Michigan for Health will be held this year from June 7-9 in Lansing, Michigan.

WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED?

For this year’s event we are placing special emphasis on leveraging progress in health information technology adoption, harnessing the growing list of pervasive data sharing opportunities, and identifying new efforts to incorporate the social determinants of health and clinical research to foster a learning health system.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

Connecting Michigan has become a popular meeting place for healthcare leaders from Michigan and around the U.S., attracting professionals from across the healthcare spectrum. Attendees interact with influential health information technology professionals, clinicians, health care leaders and decision makers, members of the state government, representatives of commercial health plans, and leading vendors.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Connecting Michigan is a three-day conference (June 7-9, 2017) in Lansing, Michigan. Each year it is focused on the exchange of healthcare information and the future of healthcare and healthcare information technology in our state.

WHY CONNECTING MICHIGAN FOR HEALTH?

Join us for this Three-Day Conference

Connecting Michigan unites the voices and visions around the exchange of healthcare information. The event has always been more than simply listening to presenters – it’s about achieving goals and influencing the direction of health information sharing in our state and country. At Connecting Michigan, attendees can network with experts from around the nation, discuss new solutions and work together to solve problems. Connecting Michigan is about making new healthcare possibilities real, and that begins with discussions and the exchange of ideas.

The conference addresses needs across the healthcare spectrum. It’s about patients hoping their healthcare information is where they need it to be; doctors looking for more information about their patients; the emergency room staff that wants to know more about the patient that was just rushed through their doors; the pharmacist wanting to make sure that a customer is getting the right prescription for their condition; the health insurance plans trying to ensure that their consumers are getting the best treatment for the best price; and the state and federal employees working to ensure the healthcare community continues to be vibrant and strong.

CONNECTING AS A HEALTHCARE COMMUNITY

June 7-9, 2017

Connecting Michigan is an opportunity for attendees to share their thoughts about what they would like to see in the future, what isn’t working and what could be better. In healthcare we succeed together, not apart, and Connecting Michigan brings us together to make that next step as one.


Every day Connecting Michigan’s three-day calendar is packed with important voices, from the federal level to healthcare offices to community leaders.
