Peter Neupert on Modernizing Healthcare Through IT

Peter Neupert, Corporate Vice President of the Microsoft Health Solutions Group and my grand-grand-boss, recently completed a testimony before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP).

Peter testified along with:

  • Jack Cochran, Executive Director, The Permanente Federation, Oakland, CA
  • Janet Corrigan, President, The National Quality Forum, Washington, DC
  • Valerie Melvin, Director of Information Technology, The Government Accounting Office, Washington, DC
  • Mary Grealy, President, Health Leadership Council, Washington, DC

The full testimony can be seen on the HELP committee's web site. The transcript is available on the Microsoft PressPass web site.

On the same page you can see Peter’s written submission. This document is particularly interesting as it really summarizes what the Health Solutions Group (HSG) is all about. I strongly suggest you read it and let me know if you have any feedback either directly or though the comments below.

You can read Peter’s impressions on his blog.

Lastly, a quick video from FOX News that was recorded right after the testimony. Enjoy!
