San Diego, California – Achieve Internet, an Open Source software engineering firm, and their healthcare technology division Achieve Health are co-hosting a panel discussion and executive breakfast at the Pillsbury, Winthrop, Shaw, Pittman offices in San Diego CA – June 18th at 7:30AM. The event will include industry experts from the healthcare technology sector who focus on leveraging effective Open Source software within the healthcare sector.
The health sector is undergoing transformational growth and change, offering compelling opportunities and challenges for the required technology components on the market. The current landscape of healthcare technology is fragmented, disconnected and siloed. With easily interoperable data the entire industry can benefit and further adoption of Open Source Software (OSS) will allow us to enhance the interoperability of these systems. The panelists will explore the technology hurdles facing the healthcare industry, how they see Health Information Technology evolving, and how OSS can play a part in advancing the currently available Health IT solutions.
The panelists include industry experts from across the healthcare technology and open source software spectrum:
