Presenter:  Christopher M. Cornue, MSHSA, FACHE, FSA, Chief Strategy & Chief Innovation Officer, Navicent Health

Track 5:  Health Information Technology

Participants Feedback

"The need for internal and external scanning is paramount in a forward-looking organization. My organization falls below the mark. I will use these ideas to raise awareness. The idea of asking "what if" questions. I am a Board member of a post-secondary organization that would benefit from using the basic principles as a brainstorming opportunity for a generative discussion. The presentation has implications well beyond health care."

Dr. James Robblee
