Healthtech Leader 3.0: Uniting Digital Health Tech Leaders to Break Down Silos
Ann Arbor, MI, August 28, 2023—Healthtech Leader 3.0, a pivotal event at the forefront of digital health innovation, is set to unite digital health tech leaders in a collective effort to tackle the formidable challenges currently facing healthcare providers. The event, hosted by Cleveland Clinic on September 27-29, aims to unite digital health leaders specializing in applications, data and analytics, security, and technology to drive transformation.
“Healthtech Leader 3.0 was organized to harness the collective expertise and diverse perspectives of digital health tech leaders by creating an environment that inspires collaborative breakthroughs and transformative progress,” said Russ Branzell, President and Chief Executive Officer of CHIME (The College of Health Information Executives). He continued, “By dismantling silos through cross-functional collaboration, we are paving the way to help provider organizations move digital transformation forward. That’s why CHIME, AEHADA (The Association for Executives in Healthcare Applications, Data & Analytics), AEHIS (The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Security), and AEHIT (The Association for Executives in Healthcare Information Technology), joined forces to launch this unparalleled new event to spark the unity this industry so desperately needs to successfully advance health and care.”
An Open, Industry-Wide Invitation to Digital Health Tech Leaders
Demonstrating its commitment to fostering unity and collaborative progress, Healthtech Leader 3.0 has made registration open to digital health leaders across the industry. Through event registration, attendees will receive a complementary 1-year membership to the professional organization they are eligible to join: AEHIS, AEHIT, or AEHADA. This offer ensures that any eligible digital health leader seeking solutions for their organization’s challenges has the opportunity to join their peers from other organizations to enhance and benefit from the discussions, education, and valuable exchange of knowledge and insights shared at Healthtech Leader 3.0.
“Our objective is to reshape the healthcare landscape by harnessing the collective insights and efforts of digital health leaders at the forefront of the IT disciplines critical to enabling the continuum of care,” stated David Finn. “The inclusive ethos of Healthtech Leader 3.0 mirrors our commitment to creating a platform where digital health leaders of diverse backgrounds can collectively steer transformative change.”
A Call for Unity in Digital Health: Bridging the Technical Divide
Amid escalating challenges posed by growing cybersecurity threats, evolving care models, staffing shortages, and budget constraints, the call for a unified approach to confronting today’s complex issues is long overdue for an industry urgently seeking real solutions.
“Healthcare is fragmented. The only way we’re going to see true digital transformation is to bring together applications, data and analytics, security, and infrastructure leaders,” emphasized David Finn, CHIME Vice President of AEHADA, AEHIS, and AEHIT. Mr. Finn added, “Healthtech Leader 3.0 provides that very platform. At the core of our vision is a holistic approach that integrates every facet of digital healthcare solutions to address all angles of the complex challenges providers today face. We organized this event to offer the best and brightest minds in digital health technology an arena to collaborate in person on addressing their organization’s specific issues and bring back actionable solutions that we believe are the key to ultimately enhancing patient outcomes, reducing costs, and elevating the patient experience.”
When seeking an ideal venue, the leaders of all participating organizations recognized the need for an environment that echoed their commitment to progress. The choice was unanimous—Cleveland Clinic—a national and global healthcare leader renowned for its pioneering approach to digital health technology. Cleveland Clinic agreed to not only host the event but also collaborate with CHIME, AEHADA, AEHIS, and AEHIT to develop and deliver the event programming, even volunteering members of its team to serve as session speakers alongside the event’s lineup of preeminent industry speakers.
“Cleveland Clinic’s decision to host Healthtech Leader 3.0 is rooted in our dedication to catalyzing meaningful change,” stated Kevin Duemling, Senior Director of Cybersecurity Technology Protection at the Cleveland Clinic. “We [Cleveland Clinic] see this as an opportunity to contribute to these transformative conversations, driven by our shared core values of patient care, research, and education.”
