HSX MarketStreet’s "Always Hacking in Philadelphia: The Consumer Consent Edition" is taking place in conjunction with the 2019 Mid-Atlantic Health IT Summit. Meet the leaders behind the hackathon during this session and learn more about what’s taking place next door. For this year’s Hackathon, HSX MarketStreet has developed a consent and authentication module that hackers will be able to leverage to develop tools that will allow consumers to direct the transmission and exchange of their own health records into a medium of their choosing.

Physician burnout is a national healthcare issue and the use of technology and electronic health records (EHRs) are often cited as a contributing factor.  Join Gina Altieri, SVP Corporate Services and Dr. David West, Medical Director, Health Informatics with Nemours Children’s Health System to hear how Nemours is addressing this important issue through their Physician IT (PhIT) program. With PhIT, physicians receive special training in informatics and the Epic EHR.  They then receive dedicated time to work on behalf of all Nemours physicians to identify where technology deployment in clinical workflows creates unnecessary work. The PhIT team is using analytics about time spent engaged in EHR activities, to help identify providers that may be suffering from burnout and provide support.  Joining Gina and David is Dr. Matthew DiGuglielmo, Division Chief, Pediatrics and Dr. Sara Slovin from the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children to share their experience with the program.

Healthcare is one of the fastest growing industries. This growth has affected all aspects of the healthcare supply chain, from providers (doctors), to facilities, education, drug development, software and technology, and implementation and support. While this has created an influx of people interested in working in healthcare, this only increases the challenge in finding the right people. This session will focus on how to find talent and keep it in healthcare technology. The speakers will cover several different roles in healthcare technology, including support, implementation, development, and management. Hiring staff to work in traditional IS&T (information services and technology) is very challenging, and if your organization wants to do more than simply keep up with operations, it is critical to find the right people.

Have you wanted to create consistent patient and plan member consumer experiences? Or provide opportunities to lower the cost of care? A digital health strategy will answer your needs. At the heart of a digital health strategy is data trusted, secure data that can be accessed by everyone in the organization. To reach this level of maturity, organizations are starting to leverage governance to foster and deliver trusted data to their line of business data consumers.

For health systems focused on optimizing the clinician’s experience, the decision to incorporate clinical workflow tools is an easy one. Mobile solutions are often used to fill voids in EHR-based workflows. However, since healthcare systems vary in terms of their informatics infrastructure, access to development resources, and experience in implementing new technology, health systems typically weigh the merits of two distinct paths: building an in-house solution or evaluating and implementing a vendor solution. Both options have a variety of strengths and weaknesses. In this session, the speakers will share Penn Medicine’s experience and approach utilizing their journey on each of these paths--implementing a vendor-built secure messaging solution and building a homegrown clinical workflow tool. They will describe the factors that influence homegrown vs. vendor decision, discuss barriers to implementation and how the solutions are sustained and financed by the healthcare system.

AI in healthcare brings new ways of thinking and working.There is nothing artificial about the impact of AI is having on the medical industry. By 2025, artificial intelligence applications in healthcare will represent a $34 billion market 
 
Revenue in the lucrative AI healthcare space will be spread across a wide swath of applications, from data security to streamlined workflows. There are multiple use cases including compliance, coding, process flows and business operations that could be adopted today, which will not put lives or care at risk.
 
The phenomenal growth of artificial intelligence in healthcare is due to the wealth of benefits AI offers physician, nurses, care teams and their patients. AI can identify complex patterns within raw data. It can learn on its own and rewrites its own algorithm and it can predict outcomes. Combined, these capabilities add up to a technology that will disrupt and transform and entire industry.
 
The AI healthcare applications that will be covered include:
 
  • Virtual Nursing Assistants
  •  Medical Image Analysis
  •  AI-assisted medical diagnosis
  •  Automated workflow assistance
  •  Fraud detection
  •  Medical data security
  • Clinical trials
  • Predictive analytics for risk
  • Drug Discovery
  • Clinical Trials

Hyper-convergence is a oft-used buzzword now within health IT circles, especially as the advent of new technologies around flexible infrastructure continue to disrupt the marketplace. However, hyper-converged computing represents a unique area of opportunity for healthcare IT teams, especially in the face of demands from leadership for greater flexibility, and lower time-to-market for new built or merged facilities or locations. So what exactly is hyper-convergence and how does it fit into the IT roadmap?

Nutritional support is fast becoming one of the most recognized social determinants for success of medical care. But such support depends on accessing prompt updates on client health status. MANNA, the national-leading, Philadelphia-based nutritional therapy service for the homebound ill has teamed with its regional health information exchange, Healthcare Exchange (HSX), to give the food alliance the advantage of daily updates on healthcare developments of its served individuals. Encounter notifications and access to a clinical data repository based on an MPI of more than seven million patients puts MANNA dieticians in a new position as more-informed members of the healthcare team, allowing them to adjust diets, delivery schedules and counseling in near real time. With its proven ability to improve health and healthcare costs, MANNA has expanded its footprint, gained media attention and become a model across the country. Health information exchange will now enhance these results.

The concept and practice of patient engagement is as old as medicine. However, the use of information technology to enable and scale patient engagement is relatively new, especially when done in a strategic and coordinated enterprise-level way. As a result, the term “patient engagement” means different things to different people—whether provider, vendor, or patient. Creating a framework for patient engagement helps by establishing a common scope and language among all stakeholders and can provide guidance around key concepts. Join KLAS experts as they share their most recent patient engagement research.

Penn Medicine recently implemented a next generation Data Analytics platform to support Health System operations and clinical research.  The platform is an ecosystem of internal and external data warehouses, databases, and big data using a Data Lake framework running in a secure cloud-based environment.
There is a heavy emphasis on self-service and thorough our Analytics Storefront that’s called “myPennDataStore” that houses content-specific landing pages, portals, micro-videos, and data catalogs.  
We plan on reviewing the plan that laid the groundwork for the platform we call Penn DataStore as well as a live demo of the environment as well as the Analytics Storefront.

St. Barnabas Hospital Health System treats the most critically ill and severely injured patients. As a New York State-designated Stroke Center and AIDS Center, SBH Health System provides access to much-needed services. To reduce the risk of errors when using computerized provider order entry (CPOE), SBH Health System convened a multidisciplinary team to review its ordering process. It found several contributing factors--including interruptions, alert fatigue and the lack of an active patient identification process--could lead to wrong-patient errors. SBH Health System developed alerts in its EHR that required the ordering clinician to verify the identity of the patient. Doing so enabled a significant reduction of near-miss, wrong-patient CPOE orders. The findings of this project were published in the Journal of Clinical Outcomes Management in December 2016.
