Chopra is the Founder and President of Care Journey and and former United States Chief Technology Officer; Cummings is the Program Executive of MHS Genesis, the U.S. Defense Department’s massive EHR modernization project.

Atreja, is the Chief Innovation Officer at Mount Sinai and founding chair of NODE.Health. Skelton is CEO of Surescripts.

Hawthorne is CIO at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Ricciardi is chief transformation officer at Carium Technology Solutions, as well as a HIMSS19 Social Media Ambassador and one of the inaugural Champions of Health.

Earlier this week, HIMSS TV announced that Ben Moscovitch and Beth Landon have joined the lineup. Moscovitch is project director of health information technology at Pew Charitable Trusts and Landon is the Director of Policy at New Mexico Hospital Association.

Late last week, HIMSS TV said Dr. Stanley Shaw and Dr. John Halamka will be interviewed on site. Shaw is associate dean of executive education at Harvard Medical School and Halamka is CIO at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Professor of International Healthcare at Harvard Medical School. Among other topics, the two will discuss the upcoming Data, Insights, & Strategies for the Health Enterprise event at Harvard in June.

HIMSS TV previously noted that Aashima Gupta and John Kansky will appear on the video channel.

Gupta is global head of healthcare solutions at Google Cloud and a HIMSS19 Champion of Health. Kansky, CEO of the self-sufficient Indiana Health Information Exchange, is a HIMSS Global Conference veteran and noted HIE expert.
