HIMSS, Souther California Chapter, University of California, Los Angeles.
The program learning objectives for the 2010 Southern California Chapter of HIMSS Clinical Informatics Summit are to bring together providers, clinicians, allied health professionals and informaticists to work together to integrate science and technology, encouraging multi-disciplinary collaboration to bridge the gap across health systems improving patient safety, quality of care, workflow and clinical processes. Attendees will hear three keynote presentations and two panel discussions from locally and nationally recognized healthcare leaders in the fields of patient safety, quality of care, workflow/clinical processes, cross-collaboration, and innovative technology. The presenters hold varying scopes of responsibility within their represented organizations, which include some of the nationâ€™s most prestigious hospitals, healthcare service providers, healthcare organizations, and universities. A nationally recognized nursing leader and widely published author will moderate the patient safety panel, and a university faculty member and CMIO will serve as the moderator of the quality care panel. In addition to the moderators, each panel will consist of three distinguished panelists, who will give a short presentation and answer questions from the moderator and audience. The target audience for this event is healthcare/IT executives, clinical leaders, nursing informaticians, pharmacists, vendors, and students. In addition, the opportunity to network with health care professionals from numerous Southern California healthcare organizations will be made available during the event.
