National and regional leaders were in Madison Thursday discussing ways to improve health care as part of the Wisconsin Institute for Healthcare Systems Engineering’s annual conference.

In a rare public speaking appearance, Judy Faulkner, the CEO of healthcare software company Epic Systems, talked during the conference Thursday.

“IT is critically important to every being, and it will be here forever just like healthcare. It is just the enhancement of our brains and change over time,” Faulkner said.

“We have a huge opportunity to be a leader. We also have a lot of expertise and companies that are getting involved,” University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Pascale Carayon said.

WIHSE is a research initiative in the college of engineering at UW.
