Peter Neupert Welcome Message

Welcome, friends and colleagues, to the Microsoft Connected Health Conference 2011!

We are living in a time of significant change in healthcare: new delivery models and partnerships are emerging; consumers are expecting more convenience and value from the healthcare system; technology innovations are driving more efficient, higher-quality care; and governments around the world are looking at ways to encourage and support value creation in their healthcare systems.

Bringing the required changes to healthcare is hard. It will take all of us—patients, physicians, hospitals, health insurers, and technology companies working together to achieve real reform. Thank you for your continued partnership and thought leadership on this journey. I look forward to seeing you in April.

Peter Neupert, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Health Solutions Group
