Health IT Leader to Speak at Annual Conference
A respected leader in the health information technology (IT) field will speak at the AAMI 2012 Annual Conference & Expo, describing how integrating IT and clinical engineering (CE) can save patients.
Art Glasgow, chief information officer and vice president of Duke Medicine in Durham, NC, will deliver the Dwight E. Harken, MD, Memorial Lecture during the conference, which runs June 2-4 in Charlotte, NC.
Glasgow will also discuss how to solve conflicting priorities between CE and IT departments, which he says can grow into roadblocks to innovation if left alone.
He is responsible for the technology strategy for Duke University Health System, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing. Before he joined Duke last year, Glasgow was the chief technology officer for the informatics company OptumInsight.
The lecture will take place on June 3 during the AAMI Awards Luncheon, which honors Harken’s substantial contributions to medical science and technology.
The conference will also feature a keynote speech on June 2 by Daniel Kraft, MD, an inventor who will talk about emerging medical technologies, and a general session on June 4 led by Robert L. Jesse, MD, who developed new systems at the Department of Veterans Affairs to improve healthcare delivery.
