A scan of industry headlines will confirm that hospital information system (HIS) conversions prove far more costly and chaotic than first planned. Is the chaos avoidable? It depends. The questions you fail to ask before engaging in an HIS conversion could be the ones that improve healthcare business outcomes. Maybe we can't avoid the drama; but we can have an honest conversation about how to minimize the impact of HIS conversions. Eric Samide, Vice President of Client Management at Conifer Health Solutions of Conifer Health Solutions and Fred Lewis, Managing Director of Global Healthcare Solutions and Consulting , NTT DATA Services work daily with CFOs, CIOs and their teams struggling with these challenges. They will share their experience about what factors to consider and talk with participants about the actions that can make or break HIS implementations.

  • Understand the implications on patient revenue during a new system implementation or conversion 
  • Be able to ask the right questions of your IT department/system vendor to minimize disruptions
