Using Information Technologies to Track Spending in Healthcare LIVE Here on Feburary, 10 at 1pm EST.

On February 10th, Mr. Michel Biezunski will present a collaborative web event on Healthcare reform and information management.

Healthcare is expensive. Probably so, but how exactly expensive is it? It's hard to tell. Answering this question presents major challenges. And depending what the answers are, and even to what degree we can get the answers, will shape the healthcare reform that is expected to take place. This presentation is about the fact that information
technologies can help us better answer these questions by setting up ways for many of us that are involved or not in the healthcare system to cooperate.
