Joe-Walker_head-shot.jpg1:00pm Keynote:  Joe Walker, Sr. VP Technology Services for MyHealth Access Network (Oklahoma Non-Profit) with PMP Beth Delancy.  "Taking a Project from Vision to Reality"

Our Keynote Speaker, Joe Walker, will provide highlights from one of Tulsa's most prestigious community- and state-wide health information projects you've quite possibly never heard of involving thousands of stakeholders, hundreds of integration points, and the highest data security. The path to building a Health Information Exchange is long and challenging but something that is vital to improving the overall health of our country. Join us as we learn about the inspiration and mission behind MyHealth Access Network, Oklahoma's HIE.  MyHealth is built out of a collaboration of healthcare professionals and organizations from around the state and nation.  The complexities of defining, planning, building, implementing, securing and maintaining such a large database of information are astounding.  Joe will discuss some of these challenges and how they managed stakeholders, scope, and risk to produce one of only 30 health information exchanges in the country.
