Thanks very much go to John Teeter - Managing Director, Federal Advisory at
KPMG, Global Center of Excellence for Health and former HHS CIO - for his
presentation and discussion leadership at today's #nvtc joint committee
meeting (Health Technology and Business & Enterprise Architecture #nvtcbea ).
The dialogue revolved around a principle challenge and opportunity in the
Global and particularly the US healthcare transformation debate - bending the

public sector Enterprise Architecture (EA) methods and mode... (more)
