M Corp sponsors health care workshop featuring DHCS CIO Chris Cruz

California Department of Health Care Services CIO Chris Cruz will outline his executive team’s Enterprise Architecture Plan and how they will deliver next-generation health care services to residents under health care reform during an M Corp-sponsored workshop Friday, May 31.

The department’s IT organization will oversee and interface with the major state projects being developed as part of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

Cruz and his team will deploy new systems and embrace the latest technology — including the cloud, mobility and virtualization — to make sure the state meets the federal deadline and provides top-notch health care service to residents.

DHCS executives Dr. Linette Scott, chief medical information officer, and enterprise architect Ben Word will join Cruz for the 10 a.m. workshop at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento.

M Corp is a cosponsor for the event, along with ENS and Techwire.net, which organized the workshop.
