In this video interview, Health 2.0 Co-Founder Matthew Holt speaks with outgoing HIMSS President & CEO Steve Lieber and incoming President & CEO Hal Wolf about the progress HIMSS as made as an advocate for health IT—and how new innovations, such as machine learning and personalized medicine, will impact the association’s mission to foster a greater environment for education, information sharing and analytical work.
Lieber served as president and CEO of HIMSS for more than 17 years, and guided HIMSS to one of the preeminent health IT associations in the world. Under his tenure, the Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition has become the largest health IT conference in North America, regularly attracting more than 1,300 exhibitors and 50,000 attendees from around the globe.
Wolf has served in significant roles that have advanced the impact of technology on healthcare. As an advisor, thought leader and consultant, he continues to lead internationally in the realm of health policy and technology adoption to increase access and improve care outcomes. A key architect in the development of content, research and user interfaces for video on demand and broadband, Wolf is a pioneer in consumer engagement. He has contributed his unique approach and insights to the birth of the digital health era, combining traditional enterprise strategies with an end-to-end organizational view, while keeping the patient as the central focus. Among his many areas of expertise are integrated care models, mHealth, product development, marketing, distribution, information technology and innovation implementation.
Lieber and Wolf will participate in the Opening Keynote at the 11th Annual Health 2.0 Fall Technology Conference on Monday, Oct. 2.
