This monthâ??s presentation is on issues that occur in Health Care IT projects that put them in extreme danger of failure.? The speaker, Peter Hartzman, has been involved in many large and complex IT Health Care IT projects and will share his experiences with us.? This is going to be a hot topic during the economic recovery as hospitals and health care groups shift to computer based information system in large numbers.
Peter Hartzman started his career building real-time monitoring systems for Jet Propulsion Labs where launch windows donâ??t allow for missed deliverables.? Since then, Peter has worked in insurance, transportation, telecommunications, biotechnology, and healthcare.? He has a PhD in Computer Science from the New York University.
Peter is a senior information technology manager with accomplishments in product and application development, operations, and marketing and sales support.? He has run successful software development groups for years.
At NetForce, Inc. he conceived of, designed, and marketed a completely distributed adverse event reporting system for clinical trials which was acquired by Oracle.? ? He has also designed and implemented a web-based security system to address HIPAA and support a single sign-on intranet for a highly integrated dialysis services company with 1200 clinics and 32,000 users.
As a consultant he has successfully delivered multi-million dollar systems integration projects in the transportation and telecomm industries. Peter is currently researching web-based practice management systems for healthcare.
Networking â?? Pre-Dinner Guided Networking
