Deploying Machine Learning & Predictive Analytics in Healthcare

February 21, 2017 — 01:00PM EST - 02:00PM EST

Join Health Catalyst for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented by:
Eric Just
Senior Vice President, Product Development, Health Catalyst

After years of being stuck in the hype cycle, predictive analytics is now making major inroads in healthcare.  Nationally, healthcare organizations have been making major investments in data and analytics. Those investments are paying off.  Organizations have learned how to use their data to make better decisions and are now demanding greater insight before things happen.  Machine learning and predictive analytics can help predict disease, patient safety events, readmissions, and other outcomes.  The challenge of adopting predictive analytics to improve outcomes are both technical and cultural.

Join us for an engaging lunch session to learn more about creating, deploying, and using predictive analytics in healthcare. We will discuss ways that predictive analytics development and deployment can be embedded in the analytics workflow and present real-world examples. We will also touch on how to overcome the challenges often cited for not having predictive analytics: budget, expertise, and tools. Rather than delving deeply into the mathematics of the predictive algorithms, this lunch and learn will be a practical discussion for organizations that want to embed predictive analytics into their technical and operational workflows.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Pushing the Envelope: Enhancing Patient Safety by Leveraging EHR Systems

February 21, 2017 — 11:15AM EST - 12:15PM EST

Join PricewaterhouseCoopers for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented by:
Mark A Dente, MD
CMIO & Managing Director, PwC

Arvind Kumar
Partner, PwC

Ryan Hayden
Partner, PwC

Join us for an engaging discussion that will explore how enhancing patient safety programs can help providers: identify and mitigate patient safety risks in care delivery through clinical loop closure; execute complete transitions of patient care; and minimize unintended consequences of EHR / HIT.

By taking an innovative approach to transforming the use of patient safety and med-mal data from a lagging indicator of patient safety to become a driver of proactive identification and monitoring of critical risks, healthcare organizations can use operational and clinical workflows to move the needle. This approach enables healthcare organizations to unlock configuration opportunities within their EHR systems to mitigate clinical, financial, and operational harm.

We'll share lessons learned from academic medical centers who have already embarked on their journey to push the envelope and enhance patient safety.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

Today’s Healthcare Challenges and How Blockchain Can Help Solve Them

February 21, 2017 — 08:00AM EST - 09:00AM EST

Join IBM for a HIMSS17 Breakfast Briefing

Presented by:
Srini Attili
IBM Vice President & Partner, Application Innovation Consulting, US Public Sector & Healthcare

Our healthcare ecosystem is increasingly complex, with multiple stakeholders engaged in intricate, sensitive interactions that can lead to data security and privacy challenges and operational inefficiencies. Ownership and trusted access to medical information and administrative data is critical, yet the process must be made simpler and less costly.

If your organization is worried about issues of security, scalability, interoperability, and privacy, Blockchain should be part of your strategic design for business process modernization. Attend this session to hear from the authors of IBM’s winning submission to the HHS ONC Challenge on the Use of Blockchain in Health IT and Health-relatedResearch Challenge. Here you’ll learn more about Blockchain and its potential for addressing significant healthcare issues such as:

  • Counterfeit Drug Prevention and Detection: Introduce blockchain-enabled solutions to protect and enhance the pharmaceutical supply chain
  • Validation and Payment of Claims: Reduce process time and friction, including compliance with contract terms
  • Genomics Research: Accessibility to genetic data secured on blockchain
  • Clinical Trial Results: Improve accountability and transparency in the clinical trial reporting process
  • Internet of Things and Blockchain: Consumer-generated health data meets IoT wearables through data accessibility and interconnection with health records
  • Outcome-Based Payments: Assigns each consumer a unique digital identity with data from blockchain (payers measure metrics for positive outcomes)

Please join us and your industry colleagues for a thought provoking discussion on this innovative and exciting new technology.

Breakfast and refreshments will be served.

Real-Time Insights for Better Patient Outcomes

February 22, 2017 — 01:00PM EST - 02:00PM EST

Join Dell EMC, Intel, and SAP HEALTH for a HIMSS17 Lunch & Learn

Presented By
Sanjay Joshi

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.

Lunch and refreshments will be served.
