Connecting Michigan for Health and More: 5 Events series scheduled from March through November, 2021

Michigan Health Information Network Shared Services (MiHIN) is excited to announce an all new, virtual Connecting Michigan for Health and More event series for 2021!  This series will include

  • five virtual events,
  • a combination of full-day conferences and
  • half-day workshops,

which aim to bring together leaders in healthcare, legal policy, interoperability, and many more related topics.

Throughout the year, we will explore the new paradigm of Healthcare Technology 3.0 and its implications for the ongoing evolution of healthcare delivery, experience, cost, and outcomes.  Topics will include, but are not limited to, social determinants of health (SDoH), CMS/ONC final rules, eConsent, and virtual care.

2020 has been a “perfect storm” across the healthcare continuum.  Many of the issues and topics that have been top of mind for healthcare in the last few years will still be pertinent in 2021 but must now be viewed in the context of all that transpired in the past year.

Event Series Dates

  • Tuesday, March 23 from 8 am to 3:34 pm (Eastern) – Introduction to Healthcare Technology 3.0 – Exploring the New Paradigm
  • April 8 – Social Determinants of Health Workshop
  • June 24 – Virtual Care (Telehealth & Patient Reported Outcomes) Workshop
  • October 12 – Sharing Psychiatric ADT and Treatment Center Notifications Workshop
  • November 9 – Summary of Healthcare Technology 3.0 – Exploring the New Paradigm
