Panel Discussion
Value Based Care, Data Analytics, Clinical Transformation
 
Healthcare organizations of today must be continuously learning to stay relevant and profitable. This comes at every level of the organization, from evaluation of patient data to discover new treatments and best practices, to business operations forecasting to better understand patient throughput in the emergency department. In this panel discussion, we visit with key stakeholders from across the continuum of care to better understand how data analytics and ultimately machine learning concepts will improve the quality of care, improve quality scores, reduce readmission and empower physicians to access care data at larger scales to drive better treatments and outcomes.

Cybersecurity
 
To better control healthcare’s mounting cost pressures, more and more, healthcare vendors are turning to the cloud to leverage efficiencies and to keep expenses in check. As a result, healthcare organizations often have no choice but to do the same; they’re being pushed by vendor partners. This means that knowingly or unknowingly, healthcare organizations are moving more patient health information to cloud infrastructures. As Intermountain Healthcare CISO Karl West will address, whether voluntarily or not, moving healthcare data to the cloud requires healthcare organizations to address four areas to bolster cybersecurity: Identify where your data resides. Understand appropriate controls to manage cloud data. Strategies to manage risk: transfer, mitigate, accept or avoid? Strategies to protect data.

Cybersecurity
 
The rapid adoption of connected IoT medical devices has both enhanced the quality of care and increased the vulnerability of healthcare organizations. Although almost 10 months have passed since WannaCry first disrupted the industry, many organizations continue to struggle to implement a comprehensive security plan against such attacks. Reliable real-world data of Connected Medical Devices from the perspective of cyber security, simply did not exist. In this session, we will share the exclusive details and statistics based on analysis of tens of thousands connected medical devices deployed in real-world environments. Learn how your organizations compare with the studies that outline the types of devices in-service, devices with most security issues and the most common cause of security issues in connected medical devices. Most importantly, learn how to plan your security implementations based on concrete research data not previously available.

Mergers and acquisitions of physician practices, hospitals and even health plans can often create instability among technology personnel and physicians in the value-based care environment. This instability can translate to cost-efficiency issues, and can influence quality. And it is increasingly clear-- hospitals are no longer able to sustain cost at the current rate.
 
In this presentation, hear from Dr. Chi Cheng Huang, Executive Medical Director of General Medicine and Hospital Medicine Shared Services at Wake Forest Baptist Health System, as he shares the challenges of bringing disparate systems, physicians, and IT experts under a single roof.

Panel Discussion
Cybersecurity
 
Legacy systems, from medical devices, to electronic health records, to billing platforms, each pose a unique security threat if left untested as a potential threat for breach. There are the obvious security risks like Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) internet access, but what about additional legacy systems that will be unsupported is patched or upgraded beyond a certain point? One of the biggest influencing factors of the WannaCry ransomware outbreak of May 2017, was this concept of legacy systems remaining unpatched past Windows XP, which opened the door for an exploit and propagation of the virus on a grand scale. In this engaging panel discussion, we visit with a panel of top security experts as they explore the commonalities and risks among legacy systems. Listen in as our panel defined which legacy systems are most at risk, which systems are commonly overlooked in evaluation, and what patching protocols are covered by existing vendor relationships.

Panel Discussion
Patient Engagement, Clinical Transformation
 
As legislative and reimbursement hurdles are crossed and new technology emerges more providers are using telehealth solutions in their population health strategies, to create new lines of service, provide value-based care and increase the number of patients they are able to serve. Panelists will share how they use telehealth solutions in their systems, how they implemented the solutions, the opportunities they see for growth and what you need to know to improve your telehealth strategy. Topics include: How to overcome reimbursement, legislative and technological barriers to telehealth adoption Tips for building a care culture that maintains positive patient/provider relationships and crates better quality of life for patients How they are using telehealth solutions to fulfill value-based care initiatives and create opportunities for physicians to care for more patients Investment strategies for telehealth technology and how investment in telehealth solutions allow providers to meet the consumerization demands of healthcare.

Security leaders must team up with members of their organization to create a holistic security strategy and framework to defend their networks. Participate in this webinar to learn how collaboration and information-sharing across a healthcare organization can ensure the development and deployment of a security strategy that supports both business and clinical objectives. Join this webinar to hear Michael Archuleta, Director of IT Services at Mt. San Rafael Hospital, discuss how to use security as an IT enabler and how this method can diminish the perception that IT security creates obstacles for its users.

Panel Discussion
Blockchain continues to be an exciting enigma to many healthcare organizations. This is especially interesting and exciting in the field of security, where blockchain's secure peer-to-peer ledger systems could completely disrupt core application development in clinical transformation efforts, claims adjusting and billing management, and especially cybersecurity. In this presentation, we will review Blockchain technology and debunk the myths or conjecture around it's use in healthcare. Listen in as we outline how Blockchain can be implemented to secure Health IT infrastructure, secure IoT connected devices, improve security interoperability, and reduce the ability of ransomware to propagate within a network.
