STEPS to Value Podcast

Episode #10: Teaching Value


Paradigm shifts often are the strongest when they start from the bottom up. As the healthcare industry transforms, how does health & technology education transform in response? In this episode, we explore innovative ways informatics programs are incorporating health IT value optimization into the education of the next generation of clinicians and informaticists. We talk with Sharon Kirby, CNIO at Davies-award winning Centura Health about how she is changing her nurse students' minds about informatics in her University of Colorado classes. We also speak with Betty Regan, member of the HIMSS Innovation Committee, about the integrated approach the University of South Carolina is taking to train the next generation of clinicians and informaticists.
