Mobile health technology (mHealth) and cloud based systems are rapidly changing the way physicians monitor and communicate with patients. In this informal breakfast roundtable participants discuss:
- Virtual Collaboration & Patient Monitoring - How are physicians using mobile technology to monitor remotely and deliver care to patients? How are patients using apps to manage conditions and communicate with physicians?
- Patient Education - How can apps be used for preventative care and education? We know about the quantified self-movement - what about for chronically ill patients?
- Business Collaboration/Partnerships to accelerate innovation - How do you make them happen even if you are a smaller/less resourced health system?
- Cloud based systems that enable secure mobility and facilitate physician and patient adoption
- Achieving broad based EHR implementation, physician adoption, and system interoperability
- The use of cloud based software and systems to control costs, improve scalability and create a secure environment for patient and physician collaboration
- Building or securing the analytic infrastructure to make use of the data in a meaningful way
- As we move towards a value based system how will technology enable health systems/clinicians to practice effective population health management?
The Healthcare System IT department can be one of a constant state of catch-up or you can try to get ahead. Meeting new regulatory requirements, evolving business needs and benefiting from the latest technology means the CIOs job is never done. In such a fast moving environment, how can a CIO stay ahead of the ever increasing and changing demands. In this panel, experts discuss resource management and how cloud based services can ease the constant churn in the IT department and help a health system be ready to deal with changing demands of patients and regulators.
- Can cloud based services help avoid costly software upgrades and associated costs training physicians to use updated systems?
- Can cloud based systems provide an easy framework for patient engagement and population health management?
- How can systems bridge the gap between cloud based academic or industry research and clinical practice?
- Technologies expected to emerge within the next five years, and how can you best prepare for eventual adoption?
- Look to the future What should every CIO prepare for now and how can cloud based systems help?
- The promise versus the problems of Big Data applications in healthcare
- Real applications of Big Data in healthcare currently being implemented
- How their organizations are looking at Big Data and when and how they are using it
The total of approved ACOs is now over 250. At their core, ACOs depend on clinical integration, care management and financial risk management for success. By linking provider reimbursement to quality metrics and cost control, ACOs are incentivized to provide quality care for less. In this session youll hear from leading ACO IT experts on how they are:
- Implementing EHR that supports clinical integration
- Using data management tools to improve clinical decision making
- Depending on HIE for a better picture of the health of their populations
- Opportunities and challenges with clinical and financial system integration
It is hard enough to get physicians to use EHR systems, some argue that adding a layer of analytical tools over the EHR will be too much. However if your system isnt using the data you are collecting then where is the return on implementing these multi-million dollars systems? In this session, one hospital details their experience integrating an analytic suite into everyday clinical operations.
- Project ownership and working with other key stakeholders
- Make the business case for predictive analytics
- Identify high impact areas for research and projects
- Set up the infrastructure to ensure clean quality data collection
- Measure success and evaluate impact on outcomes
Hospital adoption of electronic health record systems has tripled since 2009 bringing with it a revolution in dynamic data and medical informatics. Real-time access of patient demographics, pharmaceutical orders, lab and microbiology values, among other real-time inputs, significantly increase patient safety, quality care and cost effectiveness. In this case study, leading visionary clinicians share the impact they are making on the front lines of real-time health care today, and the successful results theyve generated by reducing adverse drug events and health care acquired infections; improvements in core measure compliance; and cost effective antibiotic utilization.
- Connecting with the cloud to drive agilityand flexibility
- ROI scenarios with rapid payback
- Real-time patient care through dynamic data
- Automated workflows to enhance patient care and responsiveness
Scott Miller, Director of Data Center/Cloud Practice, WORLD WIDE TECHNOLOGY [ BIO ]
According to the Chilmark Research report in May 2012, the bulk of health information exchange growth is now in privately sponsored, enterprise health information exchanges. In the push to meet meaningful requirements, some hospitals are finding it faster and quicker to go the private route, others are using a hybrid approach. In this session, HIE experts discuss the benefits and the options available to health systems in the Mid-West.
- Understand where have HIEs been successful and why and how this should inform your health systems strategy
- Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of private run HIEs versus the traditional public/private exchanges
- Choose the right systems and connect with the best vendors for your needs
- Generate value from EHR data in the absence of system wide interoperability
As a matter of necessity, ACOs around the country are launching with the technology in place to give physicians the ability to enjoy improved workflow, better access to information for improved coordination of individual patient care and tools for monitoring outcomes and population health management. In this case study, one nationally recognized ACOs discusses how theyve significantly improve outcomes and clinician satisfaction.
- Give physicians more complete medical histories and the tools they need to improve care
- Improve administrative workflow and clinician-to-patient communication, which leads to improved disease management and patient satisfaction
- Support the coordination of individual patient care and monitors outcomes for overall population health management
Thomas Deas, Jr.
- Employing cloud-related technologies like virtualization, storage
- Exploration of novel platforms for clinical software enabled by emerging cloud technologies
- Addressing security and compliance concerns for hybrid and public cloud based solutions

Up until now, health system analytics have provided a rear view mirror perspective on clinical and financial hospital operations while researchers use electronic health record data as a discovery tool. Now the capabilities are there to use analytics to improve care management, speed clinical advancements, and improve health system efficiency with advanced learnings that connect operational, clinical and research information, allowing for powerful analytics. In this session, experts discuss how health system executives can partner with their research organization to deliver better patient care.
In this session, youll hear from experts in the process of running small pilots and organization wide projects that:
- Leverage data warehousing to perform advances predictive analytics to deliver operational insights
- How to integrate diverse data (genomic, clinical, operational), from multiple sources, in a meaningful way
- Preparing data to be used for research, including de-identification; quality improvement, personalized medicine
- Break existing boundaries and address concerns about privacy and security
- Understand best practices towards re-balancing staff, tools, and resources to put data initiatives into auto pilot
- Learn how organizational and environmental factors should influence choice of which best practices to apply
- Exchange experiences and ideas with hands-on panelists who have led Meaningful Use, ICD-10, clinical integration, and other strategic initiatives from start to integration into regular operations
