Judy Murphy (pictured) can't help but get excited when talking about the potential of population health management.
"Now that information is all electronic, we have unbelievable capabilities of being able to pull amalgamated data together to understand what kinds of care works and what doesn't," Murphy, deputy National Coordinator for programs and policy at ONC, tells FierceHealthIT in an exclusive interview.
"We also have the capability to fairly quickly iterate those results back into practice. It's an exciting time, and I think we're really just in the early stages of that journey."
At a HIMSS pre-conference symposium on Sunday, Feb. 23 geared toward rural providers, Murphy will deliver a keynote address on technology's role in delivering care in such settings.
To hear what Murphy has to say about other areas of focus for the conference, as well as her thoughts on data analytics and accountable care, which also is the topic of discussion at our executive breakfast on Wednesday, Feb. 26, read the full interview at FierceHealthIT.
