Government's Push to Unleash Health Data 'Transformative'

Dan Bowman | FierceHealthIT | October 18, 2011

Since 2008, HealthCamp's worldwide gatherings have provided a unique venue for people to discuss issues and challenges facing the healthcare industry, as well as how to best to resolve those issues. Dubbed the healthcare "unconference," participants set the day's agenda in real time, allowing for more unfiltered, engaged discussions.

FierceHealthIT recently caught up with founder and Chief Instigator Mark Scrimshire in Washington, D.C., to ask him about the importance of HealthCamp and to get his thoughts on the state of health IT in the U.S. today.
