I moderated a panel last week at the Association for Corporate Growth fall conference, an agglomeration of dealmakers. Speakers included Picis CEO Todd Cozzens, Athenahealth CFO Carl Byers, Terry Hyman of Flexpoint Ford, and Peter van der Goes Jr. of Goldman Sachs.

We talked about how federal stimulus will affect healthcare IT companies; opportunities in the space; some of the challenges of deploying electronic health records (EHRs); and the M&A and IPO dynamics of the sector.

The complete panel, with questions, is about an hour long. The MP3 version is here, or just click play below.
