Day 1

"Enabling Value-Based Care”

John Reeves, Healthcare CTO Evangelist, Boomi

John’s presentation spoke to the ability to deliver value-based care within the larger context of the necessity of reconfiguration toward a hybrid cloud future—a complex need many health delivery organizations are currently dealing with.

John presented successful digital transformation as more than a technology selection, and more than re-platforming legacy models. To achieve expected business outcomes, a transformation strategy must examine EA cost and complexities, and assess how their respective technologies best partner and support strategic initiatives.

Key takeaways included:
  • How to extend and modernize existing legacy service architectures
  • Using iPaaS to increase organizational agility
  • Approaching the API-driven healthcare landscape
  • How persona-driven architecture can reduce operational burden
