Tom Sullivan | Government Health IT | June 4, 2013

At the Government Health IT Conference & Exhibition 2013 next week, the apex of all the tracks, breakout sessions and likely hallway conversations will be engaging patients while lowering care costs.

Government Health IT Editor Tom Sullivan spoke with JoAnn Klinedinst, vice president of professional development at HIMSS, which runs the conference, about hot topics certain to be discussed, the show’s three tracks, what has changed since last year, and the keynote she is most excited about.

Q: What will be the overarching theme of this year's show?
A: The intersection of care delivery. It’s essentially the Triple Aim of better care for individuals and improved population health at a lower cost. And it’s about equipping and engaging patients and providers to ensure the availability of better care at an affordable cost.
