Brief Summary of the Presentation:

However, as IG becomes more known, Healthcare Professionals have to take on previously unknown or additional duties not originally part of RIM responsibilities. During this presentation, Andrew Ysasi will help the audience learn about the differences between RIM and IG and explore some of the skills and tasks IG professionals should have on their radar, such as data analytics, presentation technology, blockchain, artificial intelligence, infonomics, leadership, application development, privacy, and cybersecurity.
