Speaker 1: Edward Dibeler, CIO of Automated Healthcare Solutions

With 25 years of IT experience, Ed founded the consulting firm Puma Telecommunications. Puma had developed the integrated hybrid voice software that merged the working process gap between communication and data systems. As the creative solution this sector had yet to uncover, Puma’s baseline offerings were largely focused on the convergence of voice and data systems by its corporate client base.

Contracted by Automated HealthCare Solutions to enhance their voice and data workflows, Ed created, developed and built a four year alliance with AHCS. The relationship transitioned in 2012 when Ed was commissioned to serve as CIO for AHCS and all its other divisions. In this capacity he was the chief architect behind the ezVerify product offering as well as supporting end enhancing the robust enterprise platform serving thousands of physicians nationwide. Ed assumed permanent CIO responsibilities for all AHCS entities and remains in that capacity today. Ed is an industry leader for software and infrastructure development and continues to focus on technologies’ role in advancing healthcare challenges.

He’ll share how he solved these challenges and the benefits of the cybersecurity solution he deployed.

Topic: "Roundtable on maintaining CPE requirements"

Certifications are part of what many of us have to deal with in our profession, and one item we must all deal with is maintaining our certs with continuing education. But it can be so confusing. Different organizations have different rules and requirements. What applies? What doesn't? How can I get the credits without spending a lot of money? In this roundtable discussion we'll talk about maintaining your continuing education requirements.
