Health IT Outcomes was at HIMSS15 in Chicago broadcasting live from the show floor and recording podcasts with key exhibitors. Health IT Voices hosts Todd Schnick and Kelly Riggs spoke with many of healthcare's most influential leaders in order to keep you current on the latest technology and people driving health IT.

In this podcast, Athena CEO and Co-Founder Jonathan Bush talks about how badly broken he thinks the U.S. healthcare system is and what needs to be done to fix it and provides examples of where the type of “disruption” he is calling for is occurring and what the preliminary results are. Bush also talks about what we can expect as providers start to shift their focus from simply installing EHR systems to attest for Meaningful Use to other IT initiatives and what he thinks are the key drivers for technology investment going forward. Bush also opines about interoperability; from why achieving industry-wide interoperability is such a challenge and what we need to do to realize this end goal to athenahealth’s approach to interoperability.
