Keynote Panel Session “Accounting for Assumptions: Taking a deeper look at reforming our healthcare delivery system”

With adoption and implementation gaining momentum, many discussions have begun looking beyond the benefits of EHR and how all this technology will improve organizational efficiencies and the quality of care. The structure of modern health organizations, like ACOs, has changed how e-communications will occur without interruption and has become a favorite topic on health care delivery reform. The technical requirements are complex and require a comprehensive transformation that will impact clinical, operational and financial areas in a community hospital, health system, ACO or single physician office that are far beyond the capabilities for most healthcare providers, and some have pointed out that we may be oversimplifying the implementation process.

This session will discuss:

  1. Planning a comprehensive transition to EHR
  2. Technology assessment & requirements
  3. Step-by-step strategies for implementation
  4. Challenges for the current healthcare environment

Panel  “HIE & HIX: The convergence of healthcare information” Panel  “Securing Electronic Personal
Health Information (ePHI): From the Data Warehouse to the Point of Care”

In 2011, the government allocated $241 million to early innovators of health insurance exchanges in seven different states.  With a divergence in funding allocation for different levels of sophistication from the proposals, it is clear there will be an emphasis on including clinical and financial data in the exchanges.  The next progression seems to likely be the emergence of combined health information (HIE) and health insurance exchange (HIX) systems..

This session will discuss:

  1. Areas for stakeholder collaboration with information exchange
  2. Security concerns for data sharing
  3. Payer-to-provider interoperability challenges
  4. Financial models for combined systems vs. independent implementation
Implementation of EHR and other health information technology promises to provide myriad benefits for both patients and providers through improved safety, quality and coordination of care.  This proliferation of data will present additional risks and challenges for care providers.  For instance, criteria for meaningful use includes a mandate for the capability to exchange key clinical information among providers of care and patient authorized entities electronically while protecting information maintained using certified EHR technology through the implementation of appropriate technical capabilities. 

This session will address:
  1. Current and evolving security concerns
  2. Points of risk in the continuum of care
  3. User education

Case Study “Kindling the Fire: How CIHIE is Building Interest, Understanding & Support for HIE in Central Illinois”

Case StudyAre Technology Barriers Affecting Best Practices and Quality of Care?”
Joy Duling, Interim Executive Director for CIHIE, will share strategies that their team has been utilizing to prepare their 20-county region for the impending HIE implementation.  From compelling use of patient stories, to passionately sharing their vision, to talking about the technology in ways that appeal to non-technical stakeholders, CIHIE has created a desire for and urgency around the HIE solution.  As evidence of their success, CIHIE has raised nearly $400,000 in seed money, plus annual service contracts with 7 hospitals and 4 clinics to kick off their region’s roll-out.

Meaningful use is really mandated use of clinical systems and applications that may or may not fit into today’s delivery of care.  Is it possible to achieve the desired outcomes of healthcare IT’s significant investments in transformation without addressing the dramatic workflow impact on clinicians?  Are we forgetting the patient safety initiative that is driving meaningful use due to the technological roadblocks? This session will focus on possible best practices and related outcomes when implementing meaningful use and meaningful workflow.

Panel  “Analytics in Healthcare: Improving Outcomes Through Data Management”

Panel  “The Cloud in Healthcare”
One of the side effects of EHR is the accumulation of massive amounts of data.  According to the ONC Five Year Plan released in 2011, leveraging this data should allow the healthcare industry to improve care, improve population health and reduce healthcare costs.  There are significant infrastructural and technical hurdles to overcome before accomplishing these goals.

This panel will discuss:

  1. Data storage and virtualization
  2. Data privacy and HIPAA compliance
  3. Improving clinical, operational and financial performance
Cloud computing is a technology that uses the internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. Cloud computing allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access their personal files at any computer with internet access.  Cloud computing promises enormous benefits for healthcare community. These could include improved patient care, improved accessibility to information, and new delivery models that will make healthcare more efficient and effective.  And cloud computing can help do all of this in a cost-effective way.  As with any new technology or service, there are risks and concerns to go along with the potential benefits.

This session will discuss:

  1. Benefits and potential risks

Panel “Patient Management Without Walls: Enabling mHealth & Telemedicine”

The transition towards adoption and implementation of health IT systems and a more patient-centric healthcare delivery model will require a move away from an acute delivery platform to one that will focus more on managing the patient for life. This is a move towards healthcare ‘without walls’, where a connected healthcare delivery system will be supported by greater use of patient-controlled data, the leveraging of technology to provide care in non-traditional settings, and empowered patient and physician communities.

Increasing use of applications like remote patient monitoring, telehealth, mHealth and other hi-tech healthcare delivery platforms will be instrumental in reducing costs and empowering patients to take a more active role in their own healthcare.  Along with new regulations, these technologies also present new challenges and concerns to the providers who are implementing them.

This session will discuss:

  1. Models for implementation of new technology and devices in healthcare delivery
  2. HIPAA & HITECH compliance for mobile devices
  3. Improving clinical efficiency with mobile imaging & videos
  4. Facilitating telemedicine programs between distributed locations
  5. Eliminate sharing information on unsecure media
  6. Integrating new technologies into existing IT infrastructure
