Larry Schmidt, Chief Technologist - Americas Health and Life Sciences Industries, HP, US
The Healthcare industry is must undergoing radical change. There are many pressures fueling the demand for change including uncontrolled medical costs, demands through legislation, rapid increase in plan participation, retiring “baby boomers” and improved longevity of individuals. Further, healthcare systems are rooted in acute care delivery while the population health initiatives are focused on wellness and prevention. Advances in information technology have not been fully utilized. There exists no “big picture” view of this problem domain.
The Open Group is sponsoring the Population Health Working Group that has a vision to enable “boundryless information flow” between the stakeholders that participate in healthcare delivery. This presentation serves as the launch of this Working Group.
Key takeaways: Upon completion of this presentation the participant will:
• Gain appreciation for several factors that are fueling the need for radical change in healthcare delivery
• Understand how the discipline of Enterprise Architecture facilitates the study of this problem domain
• Become aware of the intended “ scope” of the healthcare ecosystem to be included in this study
• Understand the Big Rules while engaged in the working group
• Determine how and where you can engage to be a part of this initiative
