iiBIG's Cloud Computing in Healthcare Conference Announces VMware as Gold Sponsor and Charles E. Christian, FCHIME, FHIMSS, CIO of Good Samaritan Hospital and Award-Winning "CIO of the Year" as Keynote Speaker

PORT WASHINGTON, NY--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Industry topics of HIEs, EMRs, metrics of cloud adoption, vendor performance, data center/data security, and advantages of patient records/views at the point-of-care are among pressing issues affecting healthcare CIOs today and will dominate the agenda for iiBIG's Cloud Computing in Healthcare Conference & Expo, scheduled for June 21-22, 2011 at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.

"The current economic state and motivation created by government incentives and compliance deadlines are driving a new horizon in healthcare information systems," says Cathy Walters, Vice President, Technology Events Division, iiBIG.

The Cloud Computing in Healthcare Conference & Expo will provide a forum to explore such issues as building a business case for adopting cloud-based technologies -- acknowledging that it is not a matter of starting with a clean slate but dealing with legacy systems -- and the real costs and cost-savings of cloud-based solutions. Healthcare CIOs and C-suite executives have an opportunity for a peer-to-peer discussion of the realities beyond the hype. Solution-provider thought leaders who have partnered with healthcare providers and payers will participate to discuss successes, pitfalls, and new solutions that will serve as enablers in the evolution of healthcare.

Speaking opportunities are still available. Solution providers seeking to reach this critical audience of Cloud Computing decision-makers are welcome to sponsor or exhibit. End users from the healthcare industry may register at the rate of $695 (after May 2, 2011: $895).
