Topic: Microsoft: Improving Health Around the World

Peter Neupert - Corporate Vice President Health Solutions Group, Microsoft Corporation; Steve Aylward, Health & Life Sciences Industry General Manager, Microsoft Corporation

At the heart of the health information management dilemma is the fragmented nature of how health data is created,

collected, shared and stored.  Few industries are as information-dependent and data-rich as health care and few are so siloed.  It is our philosophy that technology is a cornerstone of enabling a critical and sustainable shift in the way that healthcare is delivered and managed: aggregating data within and across provider organizations, aggregating data for consumers across all of their sources, and ultimately connecting these views for better-informed health decisions and better clinical outcomes.  A company with the reach and resources of Microsoft can play a major role in addressing these challenges and make long-term contributions towards improving the cost, quality and delivery of care.  This keynote session will help instantiate Microsoft’s overall vision for improving health, and its commitment to achieving transformation through industry-leading solutions.


Topic:  Microsoft Connected Industry Framework:  An enabler for meeting today’s demands and tomorrows expectations

Paul Mattes - Industry Managing Director, Health & Life Sciences,  Microsoft Corporation

Every vision and strategy must have a plan - a blueprint for execution from both a near-term and long-term perspective. In this session we discuss Microsoft’s Connected Industry Framework, providing specific context and solution strategy across the Health & Life Sciences Industry.  Our Premier Partner Sponsors will describe how they are leveraging the Framework in the delivery of Health & Life Sciences Industry solutions.
