Edward Marx, one of health IT's leading voices, will speak at Corepoint Connect 2015 , Corepoint Health’s fourth-annual user conference, which will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 2, in Plano, Texas.
Marx is currently the executive vice president at the Advisory Board Company and chief information officer at NYC Health & Hospitals Corporation. He was named the 2013 HIMSS/CHIME CIO of the Year while he was CIO at Texas Health Resources.
Marx is a regular blogger for HIStalk and published his first book in 2014 titled, "Extraordinary Tales from a Rather Ordinary Guy ." He will speak to conference attendees about overcoming personal limitations to realize that “average” and “ordinary” individuals can achieve greatness.
According to Marx:
“Most people I meet have accepted their lives as they are and have given up hope of achieving the extraordinary. I come from humble beginnings, I do not have a superior intellect and I do not consider myself special by any means. I've come to the conclusion that there really is no formula for success, yet I will share some ground rules that I have used as a guide that I believe can have a positive impact on everyone's journey through life.”
Corepoint Connect 2015 will be held at the Marriott at Legacy Town Center and will include training sessions on Corepoint Integration Engine, health information exchange, HL7 FHIR, and will feature presentations from customers who have achieved interoperability success at their organizations. Corepoint Health customers can register here .
