ALPFA OC Healthcare & Technology Summit Review
The ALPFA OC Healthcare & Technology Summit: The Intersection of Data, Technology & Healthcare, on October 21, 2017, from 9 am to 2 pm at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda was a successful half day event.
ALPFA members and friends were introduced to various segments of the healthcare industry. After a networking breakfast, the program began with well-respected industry leaders addressing key panel topics of the Healthcare & Technology Summit: The Intersection of Data, Technology & Healthcare. The VIP panelists included Carissa Green, VP Sales at UnitedHealth Care, Monica Rodriguez, RN, CCRP, Senior Medical Safety Specialist at Medtronic, Prashanth Brindavan, Managing Director Advisory Services at KPMG, and co-moderators were Paul Klepp, Retired IT and Project Management Guru and Rose Arevalo, President at ALPFA OC.
A note about the companies that our panelists represent: Carissa shared insights into UnitedHealth Care’s health insurance plans for families and individuals. It is one of 2 operating units of UnitedHealth Group, ranked 6th domestically as a Fortune 500 organization. Monica introduced us to her journey and connections to Medtronic – a global medical device, technology, services and solution leader with over 91,000 employees in 160 countries. Prashanth’s perspective into the business side of healthcare balanced out the different segments. KPMG understands the demands on the healthcare industry from a highly regulated environment, and they provide long term client support as businesses move through transformational organizational changes and market demands. The panelist provided valuable insights into trends within their segment in relation to technology, processes, people and their ecosystems. The event concluded with a Career Fair that helped participants to explore career opportunities and internships in healthcare. The attendees consisted of groups from academia, professionals, consultants and students.
Certificates of Appreciation were presented to our panelists, on behalf of Congressman Lou Correa. Our own Fernando Sauceda III was also presented with a Recognition of Service for his leadership of FEI OC and his continued support of ALPFA OC.
Thank You to our VIP panelists, sponsors, attendees, FEI OC and Irene Klepp for a phenomenal event at the Richard Nixon Library. ALPFA OC is focused on developing leaders, increasing our collaboration with corporations and other organizations to impact our community.
