Healthcare Provider CIOs Meet in Philadelphia to Discuss Cloud Computing -- Meaningful Use, Data Center, Mobile Computing, Interoperability and Other Issues -- at iiBIG Forum

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - February 8, 2011) - iiBIG presents the Cloud Computing in Healthcare Conference & Expo, scheduled for June 21-22, 2011 in Philadelphia. Government focus/incentives, continued migration to the cloud, and technology innovations, are driving strong interest in cloud computing.

The pressures that the healthcare sector are facing to drive cost efficiencies and improve quality of patient care, while dealing with issues of HIPPA and HITECH compliance, are contributing to a transition from early adoption to increased migration.

"Cloud Computing in Healthcare will create a forum where these executives along with their senior-level executive teams can discuss where they are in their cloud adoption and what the next steps should be to achieve maximum benefit. It is a very exhilarating time in the healthcare sector as advances in treatments made possible by better information-driven decisions -- anytime, anywhere access -- and greater consumer accessibility to their patients' records, seem within reach," said Cathy Walters, Vice President Technology Events Division, iiBIG. 

Such issues as meaningful use, HIPPA/HITECH compliance, data center, UPMC's Center for Connected Medicine, patient identity verification, private, public and hybrid clouds, EMRs and HIEs will all be discussed in sessions presented by CIOs and major executives from solution provider companies.

The agenda is being finalized but some speaking opportunities are still available. Solution providers seeking to reach this critical audience of Cloud Computing decision-makers are welcome to sponsor or exhibit. The registration fee for providers and other end users is $695.
