Friday, January 30, 2015 | 12:00 – 1:00 pm Central

Joel Rydbeck, Strategy Director, Infor Healthcare

Building a career in global health IT is a unique challenge. While clinical domain expertise is highly valued, many overlook incorporating progressive skills from other fields. In this brief webinar, we’ll examine the paths that three professionals took to enter healthcare IT and how they used diversified skillsets to impact global healthcare.

  • Interview with an executive who made the jump from the world’s largest IT company, IBM,  to one of the top healthcare providers, Cleveland Clinic
  • Discuss challenges and best practices with a clinician who shifted from delivering care to delivering health IT
  • Explore leveraging your skills within the global demand for health IT professionals
