Democratic gubernatorial candidate Don Berwick will get the 2014 ball rolling for the Health Innovators Group promoting innovation in health care, when he speaks at the January 13 event about Meaningful Use (MU) and what it means in the changing health care industry.

Berwick will be the first speaker of the evening on the topic of MU. In 2010, President Obama appointed Berwick to lead the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Berwick took charge of an agency budget over $800 billion--larger than the Pentagon's budget--and led a staff of more than 5,500 people. Berwick was at the helm of implementing many of the most important provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Samantha Sawdon is a senior practice consultant at the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative. She is also speaking about her work and MU. Ms. Sawdon assists clients with electronic medical record (EMR) implementation, achieving meaningful use and optimization of clinical work flows to meet quality
measures and care standardization. In addition, she assists practices in the implementation of healthcare information exchanges (HIE) implementation and implementing work flow plans to get NOQA Patient Centered Medical Home Recognition.
