One of the more interesting panels of our 2012 State of Reform event will be the session highlighting the role of information technology in moving organizations towards shared savings contracts with payers.

The three speakers lined up each have unique and deep expertise in IT systems, but also in the understanding it takes to fully leverage IT into infrastructure needed for ACOs, bundled payments, and other hybrid capitation projects.

Mike Smyly:  Chief Business Development Officer for INHS.  INHS may have done more HIT/EMR implementations in hospitals than any other provider in the country.  They are consistently identified as one of the top 5 information exchange efforts in the US.

Rick Rubin:  Executive Director of OneHealthPort.  OneHealthPort, with their experience aggregating claims between payers and providers, is now the lead agency to build a state-sponsored health information exchange.

Tom Stevenson, MD:  Chief Medical Officer for Covisint.  Covisint is a national IT solutions vendor with statewide and institutional contracts across the range of providers.  Dr. Stevenson has been involved in HIT since it meant tracking patient data in spreadsheets up through today’s most sophisticated systems.

For a preview of their talks, you can see their presentations provided here:  Smyly, Rubin, and Stevenson.  Check them out ahead of the event.
