Tampa, FL, June 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Doctors Administrative Solutions (DAS) CEO, David Schlaifer and Director of Government Affairs, Mallory Tai Taylor made their second visit to the White House on Monday, June 24, 2013 as champions for independent physicians.

Schlaifer and Taylor participated in The Obama Administration's Roundtable on Health IT and Exports, which focused on promoting the sale of Health IT internationally while also heeding the need to develop sound regulations and practice protocols necessary to successfully integrate electronic health care management systems across the global marketplace.

"It's an honor to collaborate with some of the most respected and influential thought leaders in the Health IT industry, while also a significant responsibility to the health care providers we serve," explained Schlaifer. "The constantly changing marketplace means our clients, some of the nation's more than 289,000 independent physicians, need a strong voice at the table to ensure their unique business challenges and concerns are not only heard but also addressed."

Roundtable participants reviewed the current progress of integrating health IT systems in the domestic marketplace. A critical evaluation of successful case studies and setbacks were used to establish key benchmarks for best practices in the global marketplace.

Included in the discussions co-hosted by Business Forward were Francisco Sanchez, Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade; David Muntz, Principle Deputy National Coordinator, Office of National Coordinator, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Claudia Williams, Health IT Liaison, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy; among other notable business leaders representing such organizations as Oracle and Intel.

"We're pleased by how the effort to expand our nation's burgeoning health care IT infrastructure into the global marketplace is being so thoughtfully planned and considered by top White House officials," explained Schlaifer. "As the dividing line between the domestic and international marketplace becomes increasingly blurred, having collaborative IT systems in place will be an essential component to providing quality health care."
