Speaking Topics
  • Paper Kills: How Health Information Technology can Transform Health Care

    Healthcare has long lagged behind other industries in moving into the 21st century with information technology. Smartphones, apps, cloud computing and storage are ubiquitous in every other aspect of our lives, but in healthcare, we're handed a pen, a clipboard, and see row upon row of paper medical records. Merritt examines how health care is entering the information age, the advantages and disadvantages of doing so, and the latest trends in medical information technology. Learn how the future of health IT will affect you, your organization and your community.

  • The Future of Health Care: How the Delivery of Medical Care will Change

    Today's healthcare landscape is a patchwork of disjointed networks that have become inefficient and ineffective for modern medicine. Change is happening but how far and fast will it go? What are what the real accelerators of change and who will be driving them? Merritt explains how the current medical infrastructure will move from chaos to coordination, from volume• to value-based payment and how the importance of primary care and evidence-based medicine can no longer be ignored.

  • The Health Reform Law: What's Happened, What's Next, What You Need to Know

    The health reform law impacts every stakeholder in healthcare. It is imperative every organization is aware of and prepares for the inevitable changes this law will have on their business. In this engaging discussion, Merritt helps organizations fully understand the key provisions already enacted as well as educate them on future regulations and their effect on all parties. He also examines the implications of the Supreme Court's upcoming decision on the individual mandate and offers a surprising forecast for 2014--the year all reform is fully implemented.
