May 16, 2019
Policy Snapshot

Once again this year, the Society is a strategic collaborator for the Health IT Collaborative Care Summit taking place in Baltimore, June 23-25, 2019. The Summit, annually organized by the Long-Term and Post-Acute Care Health Information Technology (LTPAC HIT) Collaborative, will continue to focus on bringing LTPAC providers together with acute care providers, payers, health IT vendors, health information exchange intermediaries, consultants, system integrators, and solution providers to engage in discussing how technology is connecting the health care ecosystem in the era of health and payment reforms. The Summit’s keynotes, panels, and breakouts will address innovative care delivery and payment models enabled by technology in general, as well as the broader health IT, interoperability, and health information exchange modalities. 

The Summit will be highlighted by several keynotes, including Mark McLellan, MD, PhD, a long-time health policy expert who currently serves as director of the Robert J Margolis Center for Health Policy and the Margolis Professor of Business, Medicine and Health Policy at Duke University. Steve Posnack, MS, MHS, who currently serves as director of the office of technology at the Office of the National Coordination (ONC), will provide updates on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)/ONC rules on interoperability and other hot topics. Several Society members will lead panels on quality measurement, payment reform, and the role of telehealth.
