Join your fellow attendees for a coffee and light breakfast before our opening keynote.
Analytics tools provide us with unlimited potential to generate insights in the health of our populations and create more opportunities to deliver value-based care. The true winners of the population health movement will be those providers who clearly aggregate their data to improve medical knowledge at the point of care, but also contribute to revolutionary research-driven breakthroughs. Don't miss this engaging presentation on the use of informatics and expansive data sets to propel us into the golden age of research, as healthcare shifts from evidence-based practice to practice-based medicine. Panelists will discuss tools and techniques they are using to collect data, create actionable intelligence to identify at-risk populations and improve patient outcomes. Topics include:
Terri Steinberg, Chief Health Information Officer and Vice President, Population Health Informatics, Christiana Care Health System

Consumer telehealth is rapidly becoming an integral part of today’s health care delivery system. In a recent Teladoc survey of U.S. hospitals and health systems, conducted in partnership by Becker’s Hospital review, 76% of respondents reported they already have or will be implementing consumer telehealth (virtual visits with patients).
Among the many drivers of telehealth adoption, hospitals and health systems share three key initiatives: Integrate care delivery models, prepare for evolving payment models, and respond to competition. This session will cover where to start when considering a consumer telehealth program along with key areas to identify when aligning telehealth as a strategic asset.
MACRA and Bundled Payments Update - Staying Compliant and Keeping Aware of Policy Changes Affecting Your Organization
As the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) continues an aggressive push to drive forward to mandatory bundled payments and capitation, IT's evolution is now a mandated regulation in the transition to a learning healthcare system. With MACRA's deadline of January 1, 2017, the first year of provider reporting is already underway. Beyond this, mandatory bundled payments are visible on the horizon as the "Post-EHR" era progresses forward, with the bar being set high by the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) as it relates to interoperability, reporting to present value of care, and to becoming an enterprise that is prepared for the next generation of healthcare.
In this session, join our expert presenters as we explore the intricacies of these policies, with a specific focus on MACRA and bundled payments, and how HIT leadership must position themselves and their organizations to receive the highest possible reimbursement-- contributing to a higher quality of care.
The ongoing consumerization of healthcare and the embrace of technology are inevitable, so what does the healthcare industry look like in 10 years? If we learn from the consumer experience in other industries, we have the opportunity to shape that transformation in healthcare. The move to value-based care has opened the door for a visionary approach that builds on the best of the industry, rather than reacting to customer demands and creating a siloed patchwork of technologies.
Redesigning care delivery to achieve operational and clinical excellence is a universal expectation of health care systems today. Management of operational, financial and clinical data to focus these efforts is daunting, but key to identifying and implementing process improvement opportunities. Even more important is the use of data to monitor and sustain achieved results especially as organizations work with a myriad of data sources that often seem conflicting.
KPMG has developed a comprehensive data model and analytics tool to support the needs of large complex health systems in the management and analysis of clinical and operational data. The collaboration between The Health system and consultancy has resulted in an extensible common data model that can be used throughout the system, standardized quality control and validation tools to quickly assess quality, completeness and content of data submissions, incorporated industry and custom benchmarks, and provided data tuning to speed up queries.
The completed tool contains dozens of standard dashboards to support identified common clinical and operational analyses, incorporating dynamic filtering capabilities into the development and creation of client deliverables, and developed advanced statistical models to identify cause and effect patterns of variability and opportunity in the clinical data. There are over a hundred key metrics available to support analysis and visualization, over two hundred clinical and financial data elements leveraged, millions of benchmark data points, and multiple analytics algorithms that support identification variability and improvement opportunities.
Attendees will come away with a better understanding of:
Brian Wells has a long standing passion for engaging patients in their own healthcare as a means of significantly improving outcomes and reducing risks. Whether focused on preparation for surgery or compliance with chronic disease management, making it easy for providers to supply patients with simple to use mobile applications that are tailored to their needs is becoming a new requirement. Brian will discuss the challenges related to building meaningful patient engagement tools and briefly review several solutions.
Join the HealthShare Exchange team for an innovative illustration of how access to interoperable patient clinical information can increase patient satisfaction, create better outcomes, and save lives. Presenters will discuss how HSX’s Market Street infrastructure supported data sharing, patient engagement, care coordination, research, and precision medicine that saved the life –– in this composited patent scenario –– of a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer during the first trimester of her pregnancy.
Advancing Your Telehealth Strategy to Deliver Value-Based Care, Better Serve At-Risk Populations and Increase Efficiency
Telehealth solutions are rapidly advancing and provide tremendous opportunities for providers to deliver care in a way they never have before. As legislative 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:

Angina. Heart attacks. No, this isn't just another day in your Emergency Department, it's the newest threat to patient safety - cybercrime. From crippling ransomware attacks that leave computers and EMRs inaccessible, to sophisticated social engineering schemes that drain payroll accounts, healthcare has been devastated by wave after wave of criminal activity. For the first time in history - cybersecurity has become life or death. But just like healthcare, there's hope. The very same issues that make our hospitals, clinics and exchanges vulnerable may also be our greatest strengths - but only if you know how to manage them. Thriving in this new age of cybercrime doesn't require a brain surgeon, it only requires experience and hard work. Join GreyCastle Security as we explore the hidden risks that all healthcare organizations face and the cybersecurity tactics that will save patients' lives in the coming years.
