Tech Alpharetta will host a Healthcare CIO Panel on Jan. 31.

According to Tech Alpharetta President and CEO Karen Cashin, “more than 1,000 of the members of our Greater Alpharetta tech community, attended our tech programs.”

“Educational programs addressed cyber security, election technology, blockchain, big data, agtech, eSports & gaming, and many of the other topics that resonate with you,” said Cashin.

The technology incubator began last year with its very first Tech CIO Panel at the Hotel at Avalon.

The panel is planned to feature the CIOs of Avanos, a medical device company; IntegraConnect, a healthcare IT company; Georgia Deptartment of Health and moderated by the new Emory Innovation Hub Director Will ElLaissi.

The discussion centers on “technology’s transformation of healthcare.”

Robert Hendricks of Integra Connect Alpharetta; Edwina Payne of Avanos Medical Alpharetta and Stewart Weaver of Georgia Department of Public Health.

Tech Alpharetta’s thriving Innovation Center is home to more than 50 local tech startups.

New board members were also added to its Board of Directors in 2018.

Tech Alpharetta Innovation Center is at 2972 Webb Bridge Road in Alpharetta.

Cost to attend is $25 in advance or, if available, $30 at the door and includes breakfast.
