Data, collaboration, and a patient-centered focus are essential for health care transformation, top health executives say


Download a recap report covering three key themes to emerge from the Top of Mind 2018 Summit, involving dozens of executives from health systems and the digital health industry.

As digital technologies take on a larger role in the transformation of health care, it’s vital that industry leaders focus on establishing a robust foundation for data, embrace collaboration, and keep the patient at the center of care.


The Top of Mind for Top U.S. Health Systems 2018 summit, hosted by the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) in Pittsburgh, Pa., explored some of the most pressing digital health trends impacting the industry.

The agenda for the invite-only summit was based on research the CCM conducted in partnership with The Health Management Academy, which surveyed dozens of top executives from some of the nation’s largest health systems.
