Joel White is executive director of the Health IT Now Coalition, a broad based coalition of patient groups, provider organizations, employers and payers that supports incentives to deploy heath information technology to improve quality, outcomes, and patient safety and to lower costs. As reducing health care costs continues to be a hotly debated topic, White is available to offer unique perspectives as it relates to how health IT will benefit patients while supporting health care providers to make smart decisions about their patient’s care, all while lowering administrative and clinical costs through care coordination, administrative simplification, duplicate test reduction and enhanced clinical decision support.
