HERNDON, VA. – March 2, 2017 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, announced today that it will be partnering with Healthcare Informatics (HCI) to host the webinar Top Health IT Trends for 2017: Policy Changes, Technologies, and Strategies That Will Move the Needle. This year promises to be a year of massive changes for healthcare. A new administration in Washington presents a series of new potential policies and a possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Professionals in Healthcare, Health IT, Management Consulting and Consulting IT industries that are concerned with the potential impact of those policies – and want to better understand and address the challenges their healthcare clients will face in 2017 – can learn more by attending this free webinar.

The webinar, taking place on Thursday, March 9 at 1:00pm ET, will include the following panelists:

  • Dave Levin, Chief Medical Officer at Sansoro Health – former Chief Medical Information Officer of Cleveland Clinic
  • Drexel DeFord, President at Drexio Digital Health – former Seattle Children’s and Scripps Health CIO
  • Glenn Pearson, FACHE, Principal at Pearson Health Tech Insights – long-time healthcare technologist and product developer
  • Angela Petty, Senior Principal Research Analyst at Deltek – a veteran researcher with 16 years of federal market intelligence experience in the IT industry with a specialization in Health IT

These top national healthcare consultants, technologists, and leaders will dive into the top technology trends that will be emerging in 2017 – and discuss the Trump Administration's position and latest information surrounding healthcare policy, including updates on the Affordable Care Act, 21st Century Cures Act and MACRA. In addition, the panel will talk about the top emerging technologies and strategies that healthcare providers will need to consider by the end of 2017, looking forward to 2018.

“Given the current state of uncertainty in healthcare policy today, this panel of industry experts will look to provide some clarity to the situation by discussing the value-based care road ahead, as well as new strategies and technologies that could help stakeholders transition into healthcare’s changing landscape,” said Rajiv Leventhal, Managing Editor of Healthcare Informatics.

“Health care information technology in the areas of interoperability, analytics, telehealth, and cybersecurity are at the forefront of the industry.
