Convergence 2019: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid

August 8, 2019 • CMS Headquarters Auditorium • Baltimore, MD


Welcome to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) 5th annual IT conference - “Convergence 2019”.

At this event you’ll get to hear from those actively engaged in key enabler projects that are advancing our agency’s programs as well as our ongoing journey to transform our delivery of services. You’ll hear about the innovations that are occurring, catch a glimpse of what’s happening today and our vision for the future.

We have several fantastic sessions scheduled that include presentations from CCSQ, CCIIO, CMCS, and OIT. You’ll hear what’s going on with the Quality Payment Program, what’s new with the Marketplace, how Fee-for-Service is being modernized, and the latest on data storage - Databricks. And, new this year, several senior technology executives will participate as panelists to answer questions and provide insight into how they think our agency’s technologies are evolving.

As always, I’d like to thank each of you for attending our conference. You are all integral contributors to our organization, both the federal team and industry partners.
