Tim Steffl, chief operating and development officer, American Hospital Association (AHA), will moderate a panel in which Chief Information Officers will share their experiences formalising an enterprise vision for Epic and OnBase in meeting their strategic initiatives such as mobile access, application consolidation and optimisation.

Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Executive Vice President John Hoyt will share how healthcare organisations around the world are achieving HIMSS Stage 7. The integrated Epic and OnBase solutions have helped many organisations achieve Stage 7 as well as begin their journey in achieving the newly released HIMSS Continuity of Care Maturity model.

Pairing structured programming with informal networking opportunities, the OnBase + Epic User Forum is specifically designed for the over 140 healthcare systems who have invested in OnBase and Epic technologies. By providing an outlet for dynamic collaboration, healthcare providers will address evolving organizational challenges while learning about industry trends, product road map strategies and best practices impacting the end user and patient experience.
