                 The GSU chapter of the ACM presents	

                 Transforming Healthcare in America:
                 The Role of Information Technology
                  and the Challenges that Lie Ahead

                            Dr. Mark Keil
      John B. Zellars Professor of Computer Information Systems
                    Robinson College of Business
                      Georgia State University

This presentation will cover three pressing issues affecting healthcare in the United States: cost, access, and quality. To give some sense of the magnitude of these problems: U.S. healthcare costs are now at 17.6% of GDP. More than 48 million people in the U.S. are uninsured. An estimated 44,000-98,000 people die each year in U.S.
hospitals from preventable medical errors. Fortunately, information technology (IT) can play a significant role in addressing each of these problem areas. This presentation will provide examples to illustrate how IT can make a difference.

About the Speaker: Dr. Mark Keil is the John B. Zellars Professor of Computer Information Systems in the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. He also holds a joint appointment in GSU's Department of Computer Science, as well as a secondary appointment in GSU's Institute of Health Administration.
