Panel Discussion

 

Throughout healthcare systems nationwide, leadership roles and responsibilities keep evolving just as the industry landscape continues to shift. One example of this is how the chief medical information officer (CMIO) role has grown over time, from a liaison between the clinical and technical staff to one that has become less technical and more operational. Join us for a discussion on the skills that CMIOs need to be successful, ensure they have a seat at the executive leadership team table, and can grow/evolve their skills overtime to meet the demands of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.

Industry Partner Spotlight

 

It is imperative today for healthcare organizations to derive value from their data and make more meaningful decisions that will move the needle on costs, efficiency, and most importantly, patient outcomes. However, many hospitals and health systems are ill-equipped to do so and are not optimally using their investments in analytics and visualization, as the data they are supposed to use to make decisions is untrustworthy.

In this presentation, Dimensional Insight, the seven-time Best in KLAS winner in healthcare business intelligence and analytics, will talk about why a foundation built on data trust is critical for healthcare organizations that want to make more data-driven decisions.

 

 

 

11:15 AM
Panel Discussion

 

This objective of this session is to help non-IT healthcare professionals better understand what their responsibility is for keeping an organization secure and compliant. Our panel of security professionals and non-IT, clinical cyber champions will share helpful tips on multiple topics as well as answer any question you may or may not want to ask of your own IT or security leaders.  Discussion topics will include – why IT/security always interjects themselves in the procurement process, why medical device security is so important, identity and access management, and cyber awareness training.

Keynote Presentation

 

Innovation is disrupting healthcare at every level, and while many institutions embrace digital technology, many do not measure its return on investment (ROI). This can lead to siloed solutions limited to specific departments, increasing inefficiencies and costs throughout an organization.

In this presentation, Viraj Patwardhan, the vice president of design and consumer experience at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals, will help healthcare organizations avoid that pitfall.

Thomas Jefferson has embraced the development of new technology to transform the way it provides healthcare and patient education. Viraj will discuss this digital mindset and the organization's approach to driving the highest return on technology innovation. Importantly, he will share best practices and lessons learned to help attendees do the same.

Innovator Awards Spotlight

 

Leaders at the University of Minnesota Health and Fairview Health Services, together with researchers from Amgen, have collaborated to create a framework for better predicting the potential for severe infection among chemotherapy patients. Approximately 20% of advanced cancer patients receive treatment that weakens their immune systems and increases the risk of life-threatening infections, in particular, a form of infection known as febrile neutropenia. A good proportion of these complications can be prevented using FDA-approved medications. The problem? There has been no clear standard of care with regard to the prescribing of those medications, with countless patients remaining at undetermined levels of risk. 

Leaders from all three organizations created a multidisciplinary research team to investigate this issue, extracting data from over 50,000 patients to identify over 8,000 eligible patients at risk for febrile neutropenia, and provide granular details into its rates of occurrence. They will share their data analytics journey during this session that is part presentation and part discussion.

Panel Discussion

 

EMR usability as well as the efficiencies of a well-built EMR are hugely important for physicians. Join our panelists to discuss how they build a culture of partnership between physician and clinician users, and IT personnel, to drive a quality EMR experience, increase EMR engagement and helping users focus on opportunities for EMR success in their organizations.
 
Discussion topics include:

  • Developing a non-bureaucratic governance structure that allows for changes to be made quickly to the EMR when needed
  • How they developed initial training programs, recognizing that the quality and duration of initial training are the top predictors of an individual’s EMR success
  • Building a culture of sharing, continuing education to support mastery of the EMR and helping clinicians become superusers by training them not only to successfully get data into the EMR but also to efficiently get data out of the EMR
  • Building a quality EMR – cutting through the hype and choosing a vendor that work for their organization, based on best practices and feedback from the users

This session will focus on how IT and clinical leaders are developing the workforce of the future while also focusing on creating a more diverse and inclusive work environment.  Our panelists will share how they are building a diverse workforce by recognizing that diversity does not happen overnight, including existing employees in the conversation, empowering employees to discuss diversity initiatives - giving them the tools to do so, and how they measure their progress.
