Leading Enabler of Clinical Insight to Co-Host Webinar on the Intersection of Quality Measurement, Patient Care, and Interoperability for Healthcare Innovation

Farmington, CT, April 19, 2019Diameter Health, a market leader in clinical data integration, announced today that its President and Chief Strategy Officer, John D’Amore, will co-present alongside Dean Sittig, PhD, Professor at the University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics in the Health Science Center at Houston, in a webinar titled, “Quality Measurement, Patient Care, and Interoperability: New Opportunities.” Healthcare Innovation will host the webinar on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. ET.
