iHub Speaker Series: Digital Innovation at an AMC
When: Thursday, September 28th, 2017, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Where: First Floor Cafe, Building for Transformative Medicine
Join us September 28th for a fireside chat between the Director of the Massachusetts eHealth Institute, Laurance Stuntz and Brigham Health’s Chief Information Officer, Adam Landman, MD, MS, MIS, MHS.
When it comes to digital health innovation, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered. More specifically, questions around collaboration between AMCs and external organizations.
How is the Brigham thinking about collaborations? What does it take to work with an AMC? What programs or infrastructure does the Brigham currently have in place? How is the State working to support collaborations? What does digital health look like in five years? What are some key challenges that digital health has the potential to solve?
Our iHub Speaker Series resumes this month, taking a deep dive into these questions and more, ending with a live audience Q&A.
