Follow South Alabamian Eddy joined us to share how Infirmary Health is progressing on key initiatives like ICD-10 and MU, where they are having challenges and where they are experiencing “wins”. My favorite quote from Eddy, that I often copy, is “I used to be a programmer, but now I am in fundraising and PR” (as a CIO). Eddy is a great leader for the Health System that provides my healthcare and he is constantly giving back to the #HealthIT and South Alabama community!
We discuss the following with Eddy on this episode:
- How would you describe your pursuit of Meaningful Use? What would you do differently now that you have several years experience pursuing MU?
- What is your take on ICD-10? Will it happen this year? Are you ready?
- This also seems to be the year to have a real conversation about Population Health? Do you have any current plans or projects in this area?
- We want to give you a chance to brag a little on your team back home. Can you tell us about a successful project that you completed this year and what you learned from it?
- What do you hope to accomplish at HIMSS’15?
