Agenda


Taking a Systems Approach to Unify and Transform Healthcare

The complexity of healthcare reduces some initiatives to tweak the edges rather than transform the whole. Unfortunately, to succeed (or even, thrive) amid the future of healthcare that is emerging from volume-to-value, telehealth, supply-chain collaboration for population health management, and workforce transitions, not to mention improved patient safety and outcomes, the whole needs to be in focus; not the fringe. This case study will spotlight Christiana Care Health System’s roadmap for strategic business transformation and will include wins, shortcomings, lessons learn, and planned next steps.

Enabling Next Level Patient Care Through Actionable Analytics

One of the most pressing opportunities in healthcare today is leveraging innovative technology to improve patient care. Success in this area can only be achieved when an organization’s strategy leverages real-time, predictive analytics to facilitate care and enhance the patient experience. This session explores the vital role that The Johns Hopkins Command Center plays in streamlining delivery of patient care, enabling a health system to increase capacity, improve quality, decrease wait times and save lives.

Integrating Disruptive Technology to Improve Care and Safety

As standalone technologies, AI, NLP, VR and others are complex, to say the least. The value in using any such technologies, however, is in the integration of them into patient workflow solutions that clinicians then leverage for improved outcomes. It’s the integration that takes the complexity of any one of the disruptive technologies to much higher levels. So, how are the most advanced healthcare systems succeeding with this integration and simplifying the complexity so as to not inadvertently add noise, confusion, and friction along with the new technology. This panel will address the challenges and solutions on how best to integrate disruptive technologies into workflow (and organizational culture) for improved care and safety.

Challenging Traditional Practices to Increase Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Resilience

Natural disasters in 2017 challenged the foundation of pharmaceutical supply chains across the United States. Shortages in fluids forced pharmacies to be more stringent in allocating supplies, while generic injectable manufacturers struggled to compensate for the resulting increased demand. This Boardroom style session examines supply chain breakdowns and will teach organizations methods to best prepare for severe reductions in supply pipelines.

Navigating Cross-State Legislation to Improve Telehealth Accessibility

When it comes to accessibility to healthcare, the method with the largest reach often also has the most limitations. Telehealth makes skilled clinicians and specialists far more accessible to patients both near and far. Yet, mobile technology and practices are accompanied with complications when it comes to care and reimbursement across state lines. This Boardroom navigates accessibility and defines a path to providing patient care with telehealth.

THE SHOPPING REVOLUTION: Using Retail Experience Framework to Reshape Healthcare Delivery

Organizations that disrupt the status quo in every arena they enter are now moving in on healthcare, forcing the industry to innovate or be left behind. The old, outdated framework for such aspects as delivery of care, lean management, or patient experience doesn’t take the patient (customer) into consideration—something these disruptive companies have figured out. This session looks at healthcare through the retail lens and suggests alternative models that may offer solutions to improve the healthcare experience.

Mitigating Risks: What You and Your Team Need to Know about Cybersecurity Threats

Hospital data security is under increasing attack, with U.S. Health and Human Services reporting incidents more than doubling over the past five years. While technological capabilities are constantly improving, it is more crucial than ever to stay ahead of impending threats. This session outlines what you need to know about the ever-changing landscape of security risks and strategies to protect the system and educate end users.

Developing Your Population Health Behavioral Health Strategy

The cost of caring for patients with behavioral health and addiction issues equates to nearly triple the per member per month (PMPM) cost across Medicaid, Medicare, and Commercial plans. For this population, medical readmissions rates can be 10 to 15 times greater. In those with serious mental illness, life expectancy continues to be 20 years shorter than the US population. This panel addresses system-level challenges facing health systems, communities, families, and patients. It will discuss key considerations to developing a population health strategy, how to better integrate substance use treatment, and how to scale services in the communities you serve.

Creating an Innovative Ecosystem to Catalyze Digital Health

Technology can be deceiving. There is both opportunity and risk with any technology. Occasionally, new, shiny products and system end up hindering more than they help. This session delves into the role tech and clinical leadership plays in discerning and developing an ecosystem for meaningful innovations that catalyze data driven discovery to improve precision medicine.

Translating Innovation and Data-Analytics to Improve Infection Prevention Outcomes

Healthcare systems collect thousands upon thousands of data points often using innovative technologies within the healthcare delivery continuum. However, when it comes to infection prevention data, healthcare still struggles to translate innovation and information into best practices and standardized workflows to achieve better outcomes. This breakout provides a system-wide perspective on leveraging the innovative technologies available today to efficiently deliver actionable data and allow hospitals to treat patients with life-threatening diseases.
