Across the globe, the value of unlocking data is top of mind and progressing rapidly. However, for a variety of reasons, most health data continues to reside in silos, and remains untapped. Creating a truly interrelated health ecosystem, with the patient's interests and patient outcomes at the center, can only be achieved if health data is securely connected, and minable by high speed analytics. This requires 21st century IT solutions that enable efficient and selective brokerage of data - serving the patient, physician and researcher in a highly user-friendly way.

In this session, this networked health vision will be illustrated through fully integrated hardware and software solutions, and tangible use cases and customer examples.

To add value and compete in the emerging outcome economy, health systems must deliver triple aim results–improve the health and experience of care of the populations they serve and do both at a lower cost per capita.  But achieving the triple aim requires geographically disparate care teams to work together and coordinate care as if they're in the same room when they're not.  This requires a new generation of digital transformation technologies-- highly adaptive systems of collaboration, community workflow and intelligence--that work alongside and in conjunction with the EHR system of record to empower care teams to do more together with less and in less time and at a lower cost. 

In this session you'll learn how Advocate Health Care, the largest health system in Illinois,

  1. Digitally transformed teamwork across every campus by deploying 5 tightly integrated cloud-based platforms--content, communication, collaboration, intelligence, and social--alongside and in conjunction with their EHR to empower teams to digital work and coordinate care together
  2. Achieved a $66M in near term productivity & operational savings, quantified by a third-party Forrester study
  3. Is now positioned to respond to and adapt more quickly to market demands and opportunities by leveraging these 5 integrated platforms to drive adaptive innovation and transformation across their organizations and the continuum of care

The new patient engagement model for the future will be based on deep understanding of the generated data from the health condition of every individual. Faster diagnosis, more insights, better coordination of care and personalized medicine will allow a significant improvement of the quality of care. The Internet of Things combined with advanced cloud analytics should be a new corner stone in every health organization strategy to achieve this transformation. Especially the remote monitoring of patients with chronical diseases or keeping connected with elderly people are areas where IOT can generate a huge impact. Capturing IOT data, real time analyzing and doctor alerting is typically the first step. Adding machine learning techniques to predict the future health status is the real game changer. It would allow health professionals to become more precise in the treatments plans of the patients that are monitored.
