Keynote:  “Health Reform 2.0: What to Expect, and How to Prepare”
The ACA is now 6 years old. The jury’s out on whether its original intent—to reduce cost and cover everyone—will be its result, but it’s here to stay. In this discussion, the status of  its implementation along with other key legislative activity including HITECH and others will be reviewed with implications for HIT professionals a key focus.

Panel ~ Security & Data Protection: High Tech & High Touch
Threats to the privacy and security of patient information top the list of issues keeping the healthcare C-suite awake at night. Health systems are moving from the traditional reactive approach to data security strategy to a proactive one, embodied in a new C-suite title: the Chief Information Security Officer or CISO. And CISOs are beginning to combine the heretofore split functions of security and privacy, balancing technology analytics, mobile and medical device initiatives with people-oriented  approaches like employee education. This session will describe a multi-pronged approach to cybersecurity that engages the entire health system ranging from IT firewalls to third-party security services and workforce education.

T2 Talk: "Achieving Quality Healthcare in a Value-Based Reimbursement World"
Healthcare is about delivering quality care. But as the United States healthcare system moves to value-based care, new financial requirements make achieving this goal harder.
New reimbursement models requiring understanding quality and other healthcare performance data and add additional quality measurement and reporting requirements such as MACRA and MIPS. As a result, providers will be even more challenged. Primaris has helped hundreds of providers realize Medicare and Medicaid quality and meaningful use goals and reporting requirements as well as supported their ability to prove to regulators that they have met requirements. Primaris CEO Richard A. Royer will share proven, real-world lessons and best practices about delivering quality care and meeting quality reporting requirements. He will cover what are likely future quality management, measurement and reporting regulations and how Health IT such as EHRs, HIEs, and telehealth can be used to meet these requirements.

Panel ~  A Deeper Dive: Understanding the Emerging Hacker Threats
Recent developments, including the ransomware-based hijacking of the entire clinical information system architecture of a California hospital, are throwing a spotlight on the emerging, intensifying threat of direct hacks of EHR and HIS systems in hospitals and health systems. In this deeper-dive session, healthcare IT leaders will look at where the core threats are coming from and what CIOs, CISOs, and other healthcare IT senior leaders in patient care organizations need to do to protect their organizations, their patients, and the data of both.
Attendees will leave the session with a clearer understanding of the broader context of hacker threats in the current healthcare IT environment, and the issues that CIOs, CISOs, and other healthcare IT leaders need to address and tackle in order to withstand the growing wave of cybersecurity threats facing their organizations.

Panel ~ Interoperability: A Contrarian Point of View
The conventional wisdom these days is that there are huge technical, financial and legal barriers to achieving true interoperability in healthcare IT. But If interoperability is so hard, how come the rest of the digital economy – from financial services to retail to telecommunications has figured out how to make interoperability a win for all?
The premise of this session is that the conventional wisdom is wrong and that the true barriers to interoperability lie hidden in the efforts of a handful of large health IT vendors and integrated delivery networks to dominate and control access to data and the clinical desktop.
Join us as we explore the toll that data blocking and the stifling of innovation are taking on patients, providers and the cost of healthcare. Our panel will present strongly contrarian views that call into question the conventional wisdom while simultaneously pointing the way to readily available solutions.
We guarantee you won’t be bored!
Learning Objectives:
  1. How does the lack of true interoperability impact the healthcare delivery system?
  2. How significant are the technical, financial and legal barriers to interoperability?
  3. What game-changing solutions and concepts are available today?

Case Study - "Including Behavioral Health in Care Coordination Strategies"
As healthcare providers move towards integrated health models, including behavioral health data in care coordination strategies is crucial.  Studies show that 68% of adults with mental disorders also have medical conditions and treating these patients increases cost by more than 50%.  Explore the barriers and solutions for including behavioral health data in care coordination strategies, ways to utilize predictive care indicators, and harnessing the power of robust analytics for true care coordination.

Panel ~ Payer-Provider Collaboration on Data: The Leading Edge
At a time when the entire U.S. healthcare system is shifting away from an unquestioned volume-based care delivery and payment system and towards one focused on value, one key component of that shift is the growing collaboration between payers and providers around accountable care and population health management. Attendees will hear from industry leaders on both sides of the aisle, as they discuss the landscape of collaboration, what is working in collaborative work on data, and where payers and providers are headed, together, in this area.

Lunch and Keynote: "The Current State of Interoperability"
Healthcare interoperability is portrayed by providers and government leaders as a failure of the Meaningful Use program.  Yet, compared with other industries, the pace of healthcare interoperability growth isn’t slow at all.  Why is there such a gap between perception and reality?  Micky Tripathi will provide his perspective on the current state of interoperability, how we got to where we are today, and some scenarios of how interoperability might take shape in the future.
