Closing Keynote: Keys to Managing Disruption by Jonathan Manis

Digital technology, artificial intelligence and ubiquitous, mobile connectivity are transforming our world and everything in it. Connected devices will track and trend our habits.  Connected medical instruments will monitor compliance to therapies and medication efficacy, and powerful artificial intelligence engines will scour our personal data to predict disease and most-effective treatment options. Drones will deliver pizzas, packages and pill-refills. Today’s consumer expects, and increasingly demands, immediate access to services – when, where and how it is most convenient for them and their mobile, connected lifestyle.  Despite these changes, the healthcare industry has yet to embrace the digital transformation. 

Jonathan Manis, former Sr. VP and CIO of Sutter Health, will share an environmental overview, the emerging role of the CIO in a digital world, and the personal characteristics and professional competencies required to successfully lead the digital transformation of healthcare.
