Hot takes from CEOs on digital transformation

AVIA Members regularly tell us how much they value the opportunity to collaborate with the 55+ leading health systems and industry organizations that are part of the AVIA Network. We recently had the pleasure of talking with the CEOs of two Members, Dale Maxwell from Presbyterian Healthcare Services and Timothy Pehrson from INTEGRIS Health, about their digital initiatives.

In a wide-ranging discussion, these leaders touched on topics including where they’re investing their dollars in digital, how they’re using digital to address challenges such as back-office functions, and what they’re doing to accelerate change in their health systems. They also know they can’t do it alone. Get a closer look at how Presbyterian and INTEGRIS are driving digital transformation in healthcare. Let’s get started.
