The CHealth Innovation Symposium, A New Coordinated National Health Care Event, Announces Keynote Themes Focused On Overcoming Change Fatigue Within Health Care Transformation And Reform Landscape

David Hira, Nicholas J. Webb, Jeffrey Johnson, Dr. Rahul Rastogi are latest keynotes for first annual health care conference

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  OCHIN, a nonprofit national leader in quality health information technology; the Oregon Medical Association (OMA), a nonprofit organization that serves and supports physicians and physician assistants in their efforts to improve the health of Oregonians; and Oregon Health Network (OHN) have just announced their line up for the first, coordinated health care conference in the fall of 2013, the cHealth Innovation Symposium.  

The symposium's four keynote speakers will contribute to Thursday and Friday's sessions with presentations designed to inspire the most change-fatigued of any health care transformation change agent. International performer, business leader, entrepreneur, and author David Hira will be presenting "ISpossible," an interactive presentation with a motivational and inspiring message that will have attendees laughing, amazed, and inspired. Drawing from his own experiences in health care, David's gripping story of when he was hit by a car going 55 miles per hour is a moving allegory of teamwork and how it takes everyone in health care to work toward the "greater good." Mr. Hira will speak on Thursday, November 14, 2013, at 8:15 am.

Nicholas J. Webb, world-renowned business futurist and innovation thought leader, will also be speaking at the cHealth Innovation Symposium. A successful inventor with a wide range of patented technologies ranging from one of the world's smallest medical implants to consumer and industrial products, Mr. Webb will be presenting "The Future of Health Care Innovation: How Socialization and Gamification Will Reinvent the Delivery of Health Care" on Thursday, November 14, 2013, at 1:15 pm.

Jeffrey Johnson, chief sales and marketing officer for Hawes Financial Group, will present "Be Incredible: Change From 'Ordinary' to 'Incredible.'" Speaking on Friday, November 15, 2013, at 8:15 am, his presentation will focus on the fact that every human being contains the makings of "incredible," and the seminar's purpose is to introduce the principles that change ordinary into incredible.

Dr. Rahul Rastogi, an emergency physician with Kaiser Permanente Northwest who is also the medical director for Continuing Care Services, the Regional Telephonic Medicine Center and Transportation Service, will be speaking on Friday, November 15, 2013, at 1:30 pm. His talk will draw on his experience in the Kaiser system with coordinating emergency care and managing the intersection among people, process, and technology to achieve the Triple Aim.

The cHealth Innovation Symposium is a three-day event that is split between the supporting organizations' one-day boot camp/workshop day ( November 13) and the main two-day conference ( November 14 and 15). Attendees will have access to special training and continued education credits (CME) through the ACCME (Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education), as well as knowledge and discussions from some of our nation's leading experts on a range of health care workflow, information technology, and industry best practices.
