The 2019 DVHIMSS Spring Symposium was held on March 21st, 2019; a change from the usual winter theme and was a great kick off to the Spring season. The theme of this year’s symposium, The Patient-Provider Experience: Beyond the Point of Care, focused on the proliferation of data and how it has transformed the interaction between patients, providers, and payers. The sold-out program featured a diversity of presenters & perspectives on how to foster better patient engagement, through technology, in this new wave of healthcare.

The program kicked off with an opening keynote from Dr. Gary Zimmer, CMO of QUIL- a unique partnership between the region’s leading health insurer and a national media and entertainment company focused on bringing a customized healthcare itinerary directly to the consumer in their home. The closing keynote, delivered by Dr. Bimal Desai, AVP & Chief Health Informatics Officer at CHOP, culminated the program with a call for more value-based technologies and a focus on quality principles in developing evidence-based solutions in healthcare.
