inline-title

Connecting Michigan for Health is Michigan’s annual three-day conference dedicated to advancing the electronic sharing of health information to support healthcare delivery and payment transformations.  Speakers and attendees from around the U.S. convene to share major industry directions, developments and opportunities to make health transformation a reality. The growing event, entering its eighth year, hosted more than 400 registered attendees in 2015.

WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED?

The theme of this year’s conference is:

“Constructing the Future of Health Information Sharing: Emerging Patterns for Innovation, Health Reform and Quality Improvement.”  

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.  Opening and keynote speakers have included Michigan Governor Rick Snyder, Lt. Governor Brian Calley, DHHS Director Nick Lyon, Major General Elder Granger, and Dr. John Halamka.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The three-day event features an initial two-day seminar on June 8-9, during which presentations, discussions, panels and forums involving thought leaders in healthcare provide a unique opportunity to continue improving collaboration and knowledge sharing across the diverse group of health organizations in attendance. The third day of the event, June 10, features 2-3 deep-dive technical workshops focused on high-impact subjects or technologies impacting healthcare, such as the ongoing adoption of FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), quality measures, privacy and security, and more.
