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.

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.

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.

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.
