Please join us for a terrific presentation by Drex DeFord on 31 July 2015. 

Having been a CIO at three of the top healthcare systems in the country, Drex DeFord is uniquely qualified to talk about some of the issues bearing down on today’s healthcare leaders.  As an leader in the government healthcare, not-for-profit integrated delivery networks, research institutes, a for-profit venture-capital backed health system, and start-up CEO, have given him a great template of experiences to share with you.  Some of the things on his “What I Believe” list might surprise you; others will make you laugh, but in the end there will be plenty to talk about as you consider creating your own list!  Formerly the Chairman of the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) Board of Trustees, and previously a member of the HIMSS National Board, he’s about to embark on a multi-city tour visiting healthcare CIOs, product, service providers — in an effort to better understand what keeps healthcare leaders up at night, where’s the healthcare IT market going, and where the biggest gaps exist in the market.  And he’s all about Q&A — he’ll leave plenty of time for your input and debate!

The event will be hosted by GCI at 2550 Denali Street, 16th Floor Conference Room, Anchorage AK 99503.  A light lunch will be provided by GCI. Seating is limited to 30 so please RSVP early with your name, contact info and the organization your represent.  Because of the limited seating, the event is limited to HIMSS members only.
