2018 Physician and CIO Forum

Foxborough, MA | October 17th - 18th

This year’s Physician and CIO Forum focused on partnering for change. Relive the event through our recap, presentations, and videos.

Perhaps the most important tools in today’s modern medicine bag are communication and collaboration - both of which were in abundance at our 2018 Physician and CIO Forum. Learn more about how that was accomplished in our event recap

For other perspectives, check out our interview with John Lynn, founder of HealthcareScene.com and EXPO.health, as well as an article by Brian Murphy, director of research for Chilmark Research.

It’s no surprise that this year’s event was another success, and we can’t help but thank those who helped make it so.

To our speakers, including our keynote speaker, Dr. Ted James, and featured session speaker, Taylor Davis: thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to engage with the MEDITECH community. Your stories are invaluable.

Last but not least, our customers: you are our inspiration. Whether you attended in person or via social media, we hope the event exceeded your expectations and the strategies you left with are helpful in your organization’s healthcare journey.
