Registration is limited and available to complete online.

Themed "mHealth in the Era of Affordable Care," the event will bring together the global healthcare industry's most influential thought leaders including Dr. Molly Joel Coye, chief innovation officer, the University of California Los Angeles Health System, and Dr. Jason Hwang, an innovation author and executive director of healthcare for the Innosight Institute.

The nation's leading healthcare systems CIOs will also share their views in a high-impact panel featuring Jack Cranmer, CIO and vice chair of the Mayo Clinic Arizona and Mayo Clinic Scottsdale, and Lisa Caplan, senior vice president and business information officer for Kaiser Permanente, as well as moderator Paul Peabody, CIO of Palomar Pomerado Health.

Additionally, an Innovation Thought Leaders panel will offer expert insight from Jim Geringer, the former governor of Wyoming; Christopher Wasden, Ph.D., global healthcare innovation leader for PriceWaterhouseCoopers; Brian Balow, partner and healthcare IT attorney for Dickinson Wright, PLLC; and moderator Dr. Mitch Morris, principal, health IT for Deloitte Consulting LLP.

Additional speakers include a broad cross-section of healthcare industry executives and technology experts from organizations such as Allscripts, IDC, Intel, Nuance Communications, Qualcomm Life and Siemens. Ingram Micro's CIO Mario Leone and recently appointed chief operating and financial officer Bill Humes will also be in attendance.

"Health IT innovation and mHealth are two disruptive movements within the healthcare industry driving tremendous change, challenge and opportunity," says Samuel J. King, FHIMSS, president of the HIMSS Southern California Chapter. "More and more healthcare organizations are looking to mobile technology and innovation to improve patient care, gain operational efficiencies and adhere to government regulations and industry mandates. As these converged technologies continue to advance, adoption of mobile health will soar."

"The U.S. healthcare system is too expensive, leaving many citizens uninsured, and lags many countries in key performance measures," says Vijay Gurbaxani, professor and director, UC Irvine's Center for Digital Transformation. "Information technologies have the potential to transform the healthcare system and this Summit will foster discussion and debate that will empower stakeholders to act to reform the system."

The Health IT Innovation Summit agenda is designed to address key issues impacting healthcare providers and patients, as well as legal and public policy, with a focus on the challenges and opportunities facing mobile health.
