Spirited Discussion at AHIMA IG Thought Leadership Summit

I participated yesterday in a panel entitled "IG and the Information Lifecycle: Long-Term Information Preservation for Healthcare" with Chrisann Lemery and Bob Rogers.  Our objective was to raise awareness among conference attendees about the challenges of technology obsolescence, share our perspectives from the field, and offer suggestions for integrating long-term digital continuity/coherence strategies into planning and operations.  We succeeded in getting some spirited dialogue going about the topic which carried over into conversations at the cocktail reception.  Many thanks to my co-presenters for their passion and expertise, and to the AHIMA conference coordinators and attendees for providing the opportunity for us to spread the gospel of long-term digital records and information management.
