Panel ~ Security & Data Protection: High Tech & High Touch
Threats to the privacy and security of patient information top the list of issues keeping the healthcare C-suite awake at night. Health systems are moving from the traditional reactive approach to data security strategy to a proactive one, embodied in a new C-suite title: the Chief Information Security Officer or CISO. And CISOs are beginning to combine the heretofore split functions of security and privacy, balancing technology analytics, mobile and medical device initiatives with people-oriented  approaches like employee education. This session will describe a multi-pronged approach to cybersecurity that engages the entire health system ranging from IT firewalls to third-party security services and workforce education.

Solution Spotlight - "Digital Healthcare Processes & The Role of E-Signatures"
The trend to digitize and transform healthcare is accelerating. There are countless healthcare documents, forms and agreements that require signature, but when time is spent hunting down paperwork and chasing signatures, healthcare providers lose precious time from providing the best in customer care. As you prepare to go digital and begin to investigate e-signatures, this T2 talk session will answer the questions that you likely have around the security, legality, workflow and deployment options around this strategic technology.

Innovation Presentation - NYC HIT Accelerators Panel
The New York Digital Health Accelerator is an annual program run by the Partnership Fund and the New York eHealth Collaborative (an affiliate of NYS Department of Health) for growth-stage digital health companies developing cutting edge IT solutions in care coordination, patient engagement, behavioral health tech, population health and telemedicine.

The program works to catalyze the growth of jobs and economic activity in NY’s health IT Sector, leveraging the size of the city’s health care delivery system and the $1+B investment by NY State in health IT infrastructure.

Through a competitive process, the senior leadership from major healthcare providers across New York State selects the participants. The program’s greatest differentiator is that companies selected to participate gain access and receive mentorship from high-level executives from New York’s leading healthcare providers. Each participating company is matched with multiple provider mentors and will have the opportunity to execute pilots to demonstrate the value of its technology solution. Participants are also matched with mentors from our investor syndicate who provide guidance on product positioning, financials and fundraising.

Solution Spotlight - Using Lean + Predictive Analytics to Transform Hospital Operations  New York Presbyterian and LeanTaaS
Healthcare providers face a daily operational paradox -- scarce and expensive resources (infusion chairs, operating rooms, inpatient beds, etc.) are over-booked yet underutilized on the same day, every day. This limits access, increases patient wait times, results in inconsistent workloads for the staff, and increases operational costs due to overtime and poor staff utilization.
Leadership at NewYork-Presbyterian is actively developing predictive analytics capabilities to solve operational challenges and has partnered with LeanTaaS to flatten the utilization curve of infusion chairs from the current experience of a daily peak between 10am and 2pm. In addition, they are exploring the potential to improve the utilization of the current block schedules for the ~100+ operating rooms across the system.

In this session, Helen Kotchoubey (Vice President, IT Strategy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital) and Mohan Giridharadas (Founder & CEO of LeanTaaS) will frame the analytic challenges facing major health systems and discuss an innovative approach to solve these challenges using a combination of lean and predictive analytics.

Panel:  Interoperability in the Post-EHR era

The focus on team-based, coordinated care is impossible without the linchpin of IT interoperability. Health-system executives understand they are in the post-EHR era and  Several provider and vendor-driven interoperability initiatives are underway and the ONC has developed a 10-year Interoperability Roadmap. How do technical standards like HL7, SMART and FHIR shape the design of new platforms that make it possible to collect, store and access contextually relevant patient information across the community? This session will provide an up-to-the-minute snapshot of how leading health systems are blazing the interoperability trail and accelerating the arrival of seamless sharing of clinical and financial information.

Digital Health Technology – Reshaping the Future of Patient Engagement and Health Outcomes
The digital revolution is upon us, markedly changing the healthcare landscape and shaping the future of how we can better engage and empower patients to improve health outcomes. Through wearables and other emerging technologies, today’s connected digital devices enable us not only to improve overall wellness, but also to improve day-to-day treatment management for seniors and patients with chronic conditions. Doctors are able to stay closely connected to patients—whether at home or on the go—and ensure that treatments are working outside of the traditional healthcare setting and that patients are complying with treatment. Explore the impact—current and potential—of digital mobile technology and learn about why it’s a true game changer for the future of healthcare.

The Mayo Clinic, Data Mapping and Building a Successful Advanced Data Analytics Program

Quality measurement, a key component to improve healthcare, has traditionally relied on administrative data and time-consuming manual chart abstraction. This was no exception to Mayo Clinic. With the greatly increasing number of externally reported measures and internal quality initiatives, Mayo’s quality organization was challenged with easing the manual work effort burden placed on staff. The Quality Management Services (QMS) department had more than doubled its chart abstraction staff to focus primarily on manual metric creation. For the effort to be successful, Mayo’s leadership agreed that automating quality measures would provide the only viable way to free up staff time, allowing their focus to remain more on important quality improvement and analytic work rather than wasting precious time on manual measure creation.

Assessing the data and collection sources across Mayo Clinic is no small task. This project involved capturing and assessing the data quality of 500 unique data elements used in 275 quality measures collected across 40 source systems across Mayo’s three clinics located in Rochester MN, Scottsdale AZ and Jacksonville FL. The outcome: Mayo was able to successfully develop a quality measure assessment methodology and centralized measure metadata repository that today continues to serve as the foundation to their current e-Measure and data analytics programs.

Epic and NYC Health + Hospitals
The largest, most complex public health system EMR implementation in history
 NYC Health + Hospitals is the largest public health care system in the nation with a network of 11 hospitals including six regional trauma centers, community-based health centers, nursing homes, post-acute care centers, and a correctional health services unit. The system includes a home care agency and a health plan, MetroPlus. The health system provides essential services to 1.2 million New Yorkers every year in more than 70 locations across the five boroughs. Its diverse workforce of more than 42,000 employees are uniquely focused on empowering New Yorkers, without exception, to live the healthiest life possible. 
To meet the reporting and population health management demands required by payment and care delivery reform, NYC Health + Hospitals will now implement Epic in stages between 2016 and 2018. Once fully implemented, the health system will move from eight disparate electronic medical records system to a single and unified one. The implementation represents the largest of its kind in history.

Panel - Telehealth: New Platform for Population Health
Telehealth has not only matured in recent years, it’s also become integral to care and wellness for managing population health across regions and the community. New cloud-based, mobile telehealth solutions are emerging that integrate the data across the continuum using diagnostic quality input from acute-care devices, high-resolution imaging, secure video conferencing and simultaneous health-data streaming—all in a portable tablet. This session will address the newly emerging telehealth paradigm that incorporates anytime, anywhere diagnostics and communications across the continuum of care.
