The second meeting of the Advisory Board occurred on June 5th and 6th, 2006 in Philadelphia, PA. The two-day event focused on furthering the strategic development of ICW's U.S. market entry for its interactive Personal Health Record (PHR) LifeSensorÂ® and ICW's interoperable E-Health platform for independent stakeholder communities, including Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs). The Advisory Board also supports ICW's strategy to establish collaboration with U.S. employers, health plans, and complimentary vendor partners to advance U.S. business development and establish regional E-Health solution showcases.
The meeting, held at Jefferson Medical College, was chaired by David Nash, MD, MBA, Chairman of the Dept. of Health Policy at Thomas Jefferson University. "I continue to be impressed by ICW's vision and the capabilities of their solutions, which can provide tools for virtually seamless connections between the patients and their doctor and hospital", says Dr. Nash. Nash adds, "I believe ICW is poised to take a leadership role in the E-Health market and successful adoption of their solutions could help accelerate the growth rate of E-Health as a whole in the U.S."
The Advisory Board boasts a Who's Who of members that include Dr. Blackford Middleton, of Partners Health Care System and most recently Chair of HIMSS, and Dr. William Jessee, President and CEO of Medical Group Management Association.
