The digital revolution in healthcare is driving more interest in and adoption of cloud solutions by many healthcare organizations. However, many organizations are still hesitant to take the leap into public, private or hybrid cloud services. In this engaging panel, our panelists will discuss how cloud technologies and initiatives are working behind the scenes and allowing clinicians to deliver better care. Session topics include: How you can apply cloud services to your healthcare enterprise today and how it can support rapidly advancing technologies including machine learning and artificial intelligence Justifying the value of the cloud to executives, key stakeholders and board members in your organization Combating security myths and realizing security benefits of the cloud How transitioning to the cloud can change your IT governance models

Panel Discussion
 
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.

T2 Talk
 
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.
 
 
 
3:00 PM
Interactive Exercise
 
In this engaging, interactive exercise, Josh Singletary, Chief Information Officer of the National Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center, we'll walk attendees through a real-world scenario of a healthcare organization experiencing a business email compromise. Clinical and IT team members alike will collaborate with one another to identify solutions that limit the damage of the intrusion through an email phishing attempt. This exercise is applicable to anyone who works in a clinical or IT setting.

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.
