PerfectServe – the intelligent, secure, unified clinical communications company – today announced its chief executive officer, Terry Edwards, will participate as a speaker at Wireless-Life Sciences Alliance’s (WLSA) flagship event, The Convergence Summit in San Diego, CA starting May 14, 2014. Healthcare, technology and wireless health communication leaders will gather at The Convergence Summit to tackle key issues facing the connected health community. As a thought leader on healthcare technology and clinical communications for providers across the continuum of care, Edwards will speak as part of “The Hospital Panel.”
Health IT solutions won’t be successful or cost-effective if they’re not integrated into the workflow of hospitals and health systems correctly. The Hospital Panel consists of leaders from some of the “best of breed” connected health care solutions, who will offer insight on the challenges of marketing and deploying solutions in these environments, along with what these companies are doing to work with health systems and integrated delivery networks to overcome obstacles and accelerate the adoption of health IT.
“Healthcare leadership can’t introduce a brand new technology solution to staff and assume a smooth transition will instantly follow,” said Edwards. “To ensure a new initiative is being utilized at its full potential, these leaders need to involve their colleagues in the decision making process regarding the goals that they want to achieve, and then equip their staff with the right solutions that make adoption easy because adopting the solution will improve their personal efficiency.”
The Hospital Panel, taking place on day two of the summit, May 16, 2014, from 11:20am – 12:20pm PT, will aim to answer the following questions: How do hospital customers think about major purchases? What are the major barriers to hospital adoption? How can they be overcome? Are there identifiable changes in policy or markets that would accelerate adoption? More information and the full agenda can be found here.
