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.
The resulting Top of Mind 2018 research report dives into how health systems view five emerging areas of health IT:
- Consumer-facing technology
- Virtual care
- Predictive analytics
- Artificial intelligence
At the summit, which was held in early December at the CCM – an executive briefing center jointly operated by GE Healthcare, IBM, Lenovo Health, Nokia and UPMC – attendees heard from a variety of speakers with expertise in the Top of Mind 2018 focus areas, including:
- Gus Hunt, managing director of cybersecurity at Accenture Federal Services and the former chief technology officer of the Central Intelligence Agency.
