Twitter Chat:  Healthcare Transformational Strategies – It’s All About the Data

The explosive growth of health data is helping to fuel the transformation of the healthcare landscape. As evidenced at HIMSS ’16, there were many great presentations and demonstrations on the use of data to enhance outcomes and improve health system performance.

On March 17th at 9:00 PT/12:00 pm ET, @IronMtnHealth is hosting a Twitter chat using #InfoTalk to further the dialog on transformational strategies that are enabled through Health IT and Health Information Governance. In this Twitter Chat, we’ll be unpacking some of key considerations for health systems as they undertake new data-intensive initiatives. If you have been involved in Health IT and information governance-related projects, we’d love to have you join.

This Twitter Chat will be hosted by @IronMtnHealth, and moderated by John Lynn (@techguy) and Shahid N. Shah (@ShahidNShah). John is the editor and founder of the nationally renowned blog network and a co-founder of and Shahid is an internationally recognized and influential healthcare IT thought leader who is known as “The Healthcare IT Guy”; he is a Gov 2.0 and Health Sciences innovator and speaker, and Chair of the #HealthIMPACT Forum.

Our #InfoTalk Twitter Chat will discuss the following topics:

T1: How do you define Data Governance and Information Governance? Are they related?

T2: Who leads your information and data governance effort? Who else is involved? Who should be involved?

T3: What data governance initiatives are you undertaking?  How are you measuring success?

T4: What’s the relationship of quality and data governance?  How are you assessing quality today?

T5: How does patient identity impact your organization and efforts like data sharing and population health?

T6: What’s been the impact to data quality in the new EHR world?  How can we make things better?

We look forward to the #InfoTalk conversation, and hope you can join us on March 17th at 9:00PT/12:00ET.
