Editor’s note: The fol­low­ing is an edited excerpt of a full tran­script of an Oct. 12 editorial we­b­cast, “Mak­ing the Con­nec­tion,” con­ducted by Modern Health­care. The pan­elists were Dr. Steven Heil­man, vice pres­i­dent and chief med­i­cal in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer at Nor­ton Health­care in Louisville, Ky.; David Muntz, se­nior vice pres­i­dent and chief in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer at the Bay­lor Health Care Sys­tem in Dal­las; and Jim Younkin, di­rec­tor of in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy at the Geisinger Health Sys­tem in Danville, Pa. In an ex­change mod­er­ated by reporter Joseph Conn, the pan­elists dis­cussed strate­gies to best use in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy to link to­gether the dis­parate com­po­nents of their health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions with the goal of shar­ing clin­i­cal and fi­nan­cial data. The we­b­cast was spon­sored by El­se­vier Gold Stan­dard. Per editorial pol­icy, spon­sors are not in­volved in the de­vel­op­ment or pub­li­ca­tion of editorial con­tent.
