ANN ARBOR, MI, May 4, 2018 – The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) has joined the Long Term and Post Acute Care Health IT (LTPAC HIT) Summit scheduled for June 24-26 in Washington, D.C., as a collaborative member. The summit is being organized by the LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies.
The theme for this year’s summit is “Technology Connecting the Healthcare Ecosystem.” The event is expected to draw executives and information technology leaders from the LTPAC sector, acute care providers, payers and technology companies serving older adults and individuals with chronic conditions. CHIME board member Rusty Yeager, senior vice president and CIO at Encompass Health, will participate as a panelist at the summit. Encompass Health is one of the nation’s largest providers of post-acute care, with 128 hospitals and 268 home health and hospice locations in 36 states and Puerto Rico.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to share and learn from healthcare leaders who, like my colleagues in CHIME, recognize the important role healthcare IT plays in the continuum of care,” Yeager said. “Having executives from long-term, post-acute care and hospital settings, all at one summit, shows a commitment to serve patients throughout their healthcare journey.”
