CHIME Members Invited to Join 5G Committee
By Jonathan Fritz, JD, MS, CFCHE, Executive Director, CHIME Innovation
As healthcare leaders, we need to be aware of innovations that can impact healthcare and proactively assess if and how these technologies should be used to maximize benefits and minimize risks. That can be a challenge, though, especially when adopting innovations developed for industries other than healthcare.
5G is a case in point, which is why CHIME Innovation is inviting members to join a committee to examine 5G’s role in healthcare and help develop a new educational event. We welcome members with an interest in 5G to provide thought leadership and guidance to CHIME and the healthcare industry on topics related to 5G in healthcare as well as other areas determined by the committee.
CHIME Board Chair Shafiq Rab, MD, who is also a CHIME Innovation Advisory Board member, will chair the committee. CHIME members Cara Babachicos, Deborah Gash, John Glynn, John Kravitz and Mimi Taylor have already agreed to participate. As the executive director of CHIME innovation, I also will sit on the committee.
5G Committee members will help build a new educational program with a focus on 5G for information and innovation executives in provider organizations as well as industry. Or goal is to create an innovative program that allows executives to learn, exchange ideas, network, and consider the adoption and impact of innovations, like 5G in health and care. Members are encouraged to think creatively about the content and how to present it. Our goal is to launch the event in 2020.
We anticipate a minimum commitment of four, one-hour conference calls this year, with any additional time commitment depending on the member’s interest. If you would like to participate, or if you have any questions, please email me at [email protected].
