While healthcare has been one of the last industries to go digital, some argue that it is now hitting an inflection point for technology innovation. Patients are accessing healthcare online and through smartphone apps while doctors and hospitals are using software to update medical records in real-time. The Federal government is even putting some muscle into this transformation by spending close to $29 billion in incentives to get providers to digitalize healthcare records. Moving data online opens up all kinds of opportunities for cloud and content collaboration in medicine. How will the digitalization of healthcare lead to more light weight solutions that are cloud based? Once data is digitalized, how can it be shared faster and more efficiently along the care continuum? Hear from Glen Tullman, former CEO of Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX), a leading provider of electronic health records to doctor practices and hospitals. One of the largest companies in the healthcare digital space, Glen joined the Allscripts in 1997 and created a whole new market in healthcare technology. He took the company public and grew revenues to $1.4 billion with over a 180,000 physician customers in 50,00 practices across the U.S. and 1,500 hospitals accounts. The scale of Allscripts client base enables them to connect providers and patients wherever care is delivered - in the cloud and using unique software solutions.
