Abstract

Bio: Dr. Michael Weiner is the director of healthcare strategic services for IBM, responsible for developing and implementing key healthcare strategic initiatives within the IBM commercial global healthcare team. Prior to assuming his current position with IBM, Weiner served as the chief medical information officer and director of clinical informatics for the Department of Defense/Department of Veterans Affairs Interagency Program Office, where he was responsible for creating a unified interagency electronic health record for over 125,000 providers and 18 million beneficiaries worldwide. He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He is a board certified practicing physician in internal medicine and holds a Master’s degree in management information systems technology from George Washington University. He is an adjunct professor of health information technology at George Washington University and is one of only a few physicians ever to have been certified as a chief information officer by the U.S. General Services Administration.

Abstract: The need for improving quality, decreasing costs and supporting population health, in the midst of payment reform, is driving organizations to better understand and gain previously unavailable insights into their patient data. Having insights into that patient data is providing opportunity to better understand populations, predict disease and dramatically improve the delivery of quality care. This talk will explore how new technologies and care models are providing the capability to transform healthcare for those that we are honored to serve.
