If you hear "bla, bla, bla, bla" when IT people talk and still don't really understand cloud computing or best practice IT security from a high level perspective, this session will greatly increase the knowledge that will enable more effective decision making for your practice. We will close with a talk on Apple computers in medical practices to impart more knowledge to practice managers about another salient subject for IT within medical practices. The leaders of the three IT organizations will focus their talks to be in a simpler to understand, non-technical language to allow more knowledge transfer to the practice administrators participating in this lunch meeting.
