Regional representatives will discuss the impact of technology in health care at the seventh-annual State of Health Care in Central Florida Symposium at the University of Central Florida.

The public is invited to attend the symposium at the FAIRWINDS Alumni Center, across the street from the UCF Arena, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, March 16.

Panelists will discuss the ways technology is used to improve health care, such as the use of electronic health records and mechanisms for checking in and treating patients. Speakers on the panel include Andy Lee, chief scientist for Harris Healthcare; Rick Schooler, vice president and chief information officer for Orlando Health; Rajesh Toleti, CEO of PatientPoint; and Dr. James Palermo, chief medical and quality officer for Health First.

The agenda also includes a networking session from 6 to 6:30 p.m. The event is free for UCF students, and the fee for UCF Alumni is $10. The cost for the public is $15.

UCF's Health Services Administration Alumni Chapter is hosting the symposium. It has brought a series of important topics to the area including talks on medical insurance, patient rights and the economy's impact on health care.
