Red Hat talks open source for healthcare at upcoming conferences.

This fall, Red Hat team members will be speaking at a number of conferences, sharing expertise and insights on everything from customer success stories to next-generation digital health. Come join us!

  • Craig Klein, Red Hat’s managing director of healthcare, is speaking on a panel with Cigna at the North Carolina Chapter Project Management Institute 2015 Annual Conference in Raleigh September 25. (Check out our Cigna customer story and learn how Cigna built an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) self-service capability that enables truly automated IT infrastructure provisioning.)
  • We’re attending CHIEF: Canada Health Informatics Executive Forum, September 25-26 in Ontario, as a sponsor this year. The event is focused on “connected care across the continuum” and will include a look at next-generation digital health.
  • On October 6-7, we will be at the 5th Annual Merck Global IT Symposium. The event is part of the Merck Tech Innovation Summit, a global, corporate-wide event to address a range of issues in the IT and data space.
  • We will be at the Cerner Health Conference (CHC) October 11-14 in Kansas City. The CHC is Cerner’s annual industry-leading health care event for health care professionals from around the world.
  • Red Hat will join Intel and OnX for a Linux in Healthcare event on October 21 in Cleveland.
  • We will be back in Ontario November 2-4 for HealthAchieve 2015, the signature conference and exhibition of the Ontario Hospital Association for over 90 years.

Earlier this year, Red Hat joined Cerner at their fourth annual DevCon event June 9-10, and also attended the Optum Forum August 18-19 as a sponsor. Cerner hosts the annual developer’s conference created by engineers, for engineers, to stimulate innovation and explore new technologies. The 2015 DevCon was all about encouraging collaboration, innovation and continued education.

Cerner has been a Red Hat customer since 2000, when the company migrated both the database and application tiers of their application suite—Cerner Millennium—to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. You can read more about the improved stability and performance, and lower total cost of ownership they achieved with the migration in the Cerner case study.

At the Optum Forum, senior executives from all sectors of the health care industry, including life science and government organizations, health plans, employers and providers, had an opportunity to gain cutting-edge insights in addressing some of today’s pressing health care challenges, including improving the experience of care, enhancing population health and reducing the cost of health care.
