Congrats to U.S. News best hospitals and getting ready for the Healthcare of Tomorrow conference
October 18, 2016Recently, U.S. News released its list of top hospitals. To develop the list, US News sifted data from nearly 5,000 medical centers and survey responses from more than 30,000 physicians to rank hospitals in 16 adult specialties from cancer to urology. The rankings name only 153 hospitals that placed in a specialty in 2016-2017.
I appreciate the monumental effort it takes for a hospital to get on a list like this, and was especially pleased to see that a dozen of our customers made it into the top 50. So, a hearty congratulations to our customers who were named among the top 50 on the US News list of top hospitals. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you.

I’m also glad to let you know that in November, I will have the honor of participating in a panel discussion at the Healthcare of Tomorrow (HOT) Conference presented by U.S. News. The panel topic is “Interoperability Progress Report: Building an Effective Health IT Infrastructure.” I’ll be joining other healthcare leaders such as Avery Comarow, Matthew Chambers, Paul Jonathon White, M.D., and Peter D. Stetson, M.D. on this panel on Thursday, Nov. 3.
What we plan to discuss centers on how the federal government is pushing healthcare providers to make major improvements toward interoperability by the end of 2017. The end goal is to connect health IT systems in order to achieve superior care and develop a system of value-based reimbursement. We’ll explore the challenges of achieving a level of data sharing desired by the ONC.
If you’re planning to attend this conference, I hope to see you there. If you haven’t made plans to go, you can register here so you can hear firsthand from healthcare and policy experts about strategies to create transparency and develop interoperability standards for the healthcare of tomorrow.
