Be sure to check out Justin Barnes’ This Just In interview with Jodie Braner, 2016 HIT Summit Chair and Kornelius Bankston, Director of Bioscience for Metro Atlanta Chamber on Healthcare NOW Radio.

In 2010 the Georgia Department of Economic Development (@gdecd), the Metro Atlanta Chamber (@atlchamber), and the Technology Association of Georgia’s Health Society (@TAG_Health) created the Health IT Leadership Summit in order to bring together leaders from across the healthcare continuum to discuss how the industry can drive innovation to enable better healthcare delivery at lower costs to more people. This year’s discussion seeks to address the question Who’s driving healthcare today? Providers? Consumers? Insurers? Join fellow attendees to explore the motivators and drivers to modern health care delivery.

“This year’s summit will explore the core principles of our healthcare delivery. Hear how consumers are being empowered with mobility and choice. Join discussions with providers regarding the new value and outcomes reimbursement methods. Learn how regulatory requirements may impact and create new engagement models. Join us for our 7th thought leading year event! ”
