Clinical Transformation, Governance
Tracy Donegan will kick-off the summit discussing the lessons learned from her organization’s process of establishing a Health IT organization from a blank slate, helping to design and implement a $70 million IT infrastructure and application portfolio to support Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital. She’ll also share insights on how the hospital received the 2017 Health Care’s Most Wired® award and in 2018 achieved Level 7 of the HIMSS Analytics’ Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model – a level of adoption achieved by only 6.4% of the hospitals in the United States.
Hospitals and Health Systems across the country are increasingly feeling the pressure to absorb a higher volume of patient visits without incurring higher capital or operating costs. However, the current methods of allocating, managing and measuring the utilization of scarce resources - machines, rooms and staff within the hospital are woefully inadequate to meet this challenge. This session will demonstrate the specific shortcomings in the current methods of managing these assets and will describe tangible actions that can help unlock tens of millions of dollars in annual value by improving the operational performance within each health system.
Join your fellow attendees to discuss what you've learned in the morning sessions and make new connections.
Data is unquestionably the golden thread that brings together and binds providers and payers in modern healthcare. Join this panel discussion to take a deep dive into the modern payer-provider relationship, analytics challenges that both types of organizations face, how they are sharing data and the evaluation areas that are generating the next wave of quality improvements.

Use of Artificial Intelligence is recognized as the only practical approach to staying ahead of the modern cyber threats. The steps used by AI are not unlike that of a physician. First, understand the patient (or device), assess if all organs (or components) are behaving as intended, and proactively treat (or remediate) viruses and other harm. In this session, Dr. May Wang will explore the latest advancements in AI in the field of cybersecurity specifically for connected medical devices.

Best Practices for Improving Incident Response Strategies and Developing Security Protocols to Prevent Data Loss
When providers experience an incident they are often left wondering what they could have done differently to mitigate the loss and prevent the breach. Panelists will address how they have overcome cyber-attacks and fraud losses and the methodologies and tools they have implemented to improve their security approach. Topics include:
Andrew Goodman, Healthcare IAM Program Manager, Ping Identity
Richard Greenberg, CISSP, Information Security Officer, Los Angeles County Public Health Department
Powell Hamilton, Chief Information Security Officer, Scripps Health
John Kronick, Chief Information Security Officer, Prime Healthcare
Stan Banash, Chief Information Security Officer, Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC)
Edward Brennan, Director, Operations, Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (H-ISAC)
Interoperability is the key to better coordinated care and lower healthcare costs. Health Information Exchanges (HIEs) make interoperability a reality by providing the standardization and normalization of data. UHIN, based in Utah, is one of the most successful HIEs in the country. Over the past decade, UHIN’s connectivity has grown to include over 92% of all the state’s hospitals, as well as large clinics, labs, long-term care facilities, pharmacies, and HIEs and hospital systems in 18 other states. As President and CEO of UHIN, Teresa Rivera offers unique insights into the role HIEs play in advancing interoperability, implementation of present-day use cases and the potential they offer.
Join your fellow attendees at the end of the day to toast what you've learned and the new connections you've made.

Healthcare is no place for slackers. It’s a fast-paced industry that ups the game every chance it gets. And that’s for good reason, of course, because when you’re in the business of saving lives, you expect a lot of yourself and everyone around you. Now it’s time to expect more from your healthcare informatics solutions. To make sure they’re intelligent and interoperable, intuitive and extensible, sound and secure, and more.
Healthcare informatics hold great promise for helping us deliver on many of healthcare’s boldest aspirations -- advanced analytics, decision support, streamlined workflows, seamless care, and most importantly, improved outcomes. But too often, we settle for far less than the full value these innovative solutions can provide. During this session, Paula Cobb will explore ways to put powerfully productive healthcare informatics to work for you.
Digital transformation is a reality for every organization, and healthcare is on the forefront of this change. Legacy security approaches have not kept up with new technologies, which increases overall risk to the business. The result is a Cyber Exposure gap, which is the growing distance between what existing tools provide and what security teams need. Join us to learn how to confidently answer 3 critical questions: How secure are we? How exposed are we? How do we proactively reduce our exposure?
Join Molly Greek from UC Davis, frequent speaker on diversity issues in healthcare to discuss diversity challenges in healthcare IT and informatics.
