Connecting Michigan for Health

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

ABOUT CONNECTING MICHIGAN FOR HEALTH

For over 9 years, Connecting Michigan has brought together the best minds in the healthcare technology community. Here policies and innovations take center stage, as the attendees and presenters investigate and discuss the best options for both Michigan and the country around the exchange of health information.

 

From the state and federal government to the doctor office, everyone has a seat at Connecting Michigan. Healthcare information impacts all of us and that fact is never lost at the conference. Each of us has a voice, and each of us has a role in continuing the successes in our state.

 

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.

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.

ABOUT THE CONNECTING MICHIGAN FOR HEALTH CONFERENCE

Join us for this Three-Day Conference

Connecting Michigan is about the patient hoping that their healthcare information is where they need it to be; the doctor looking for more information about their patient; the emergency room staff that wants to know 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 insurance company hoping that their consumers are getting the best treatment for the best price; and the state and federal worker hoping that the healthcare community continues to be vibrant and strong.

Michigan is viewed as a leader in the exchange of healthcare information and one reason for that is Connecting Michigan. Connecting Michigan unites the voices and visions around the exchange of healthcare information. Each year, thanks to Connecting Michigan and the Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) we get closer to universal interoperability.

CONNECTING AS A HEALTHCARE COMMUNITY

June 7-9, 2017

From its groundbreaking use cases and services, MiHIN is recognized as a national leader. Connecting Michigan is an opportunity for attendees to speak up 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 the healthcare offices to community leaders. You can see previous agendas here. You can also view previous presentations, read PowerPoints or simply learn more about previous presenters here.
