As technology is evolving and HIEs are emerging nationally, new layers of medical data sharing are emerging too. There is more need than ever to make sure that the steps are taken to protect Health Information against theft (security) and unauthorized viewing (privacy).  Our panel of experts will discuss such issues and answer your questions and concerns.

The healthcare industry is undergoing accelerated change to become affordable and sustainable. Affordability is being addressed by employers,government, insurers, care providers, and plan participants.  Efficiency gains are being combined with prevention programs, consumerism, new care models, new insurance models, value based insurance designs, and value based reimbursement. Information technology that helps stakeholders impact health affordability will play a vital role in transforming healthcare.

 Listen to our thought leaders discuss how Innovation can shape the Future Healthcare System. How do we create a structure to reward healthy behaviors, motivate consumerism, and right size the demand for health services? How can the employer impact affordability? Should pre-paid medical and insurance be bundled or acquired separately? How does the proliferation of mobile devices and improved transparency reshape care choices and the provider patient relationship? How is massive data handled in the most efficient way to ensure accessibility and reliability.

This session provides an in-depth discussion on what being a “Meaningful User” of Electronic Health Records entails.  Some of the topics include:

What is Meaningful Use and what are the criteria, What are Clinical Quality Measures, and Requirements & Incentives for different stages, Regional Extension Center roles and functions, EHR implementation/adoption trends and challenges, & Technology for data analytics and Meaningful Use achievement.

Learn how Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and other social media are changing the healthcare delivery model. The role of Social Media is well used and understood by patients engaging online, but will each healthcare provider need to develop its own Social Media presence and communication techniques?

The ICD-10 transition has an impact that extends well beyond IT, vendor relationships and claims, affecting nearly every department and function within a healthcare industry. Attend our in-depth session on ICD-10 implementation and interact with panelists providing practical solutions to ensure successful conversion.

Learn how the Cloud Computing Model will improve healthcare delivery. Experts will discuss how this model will make patient care more efficient so that the providers focus less on managing IT and more on delivering effective care.

Join us for this interactive session with HIE leaders as they explore important topics like interoperability, data accuracy, reliability and more.

Healthcare being an emerging investment domain, there are a number of funding options available. The federal government alone puts out over $400 billion in grant funding every year.  A significant portion of these funds in recent years are targeted towards various health IT initiatives, including EHR adoption, health information exchange, and telemedicine.  Meet our expert panelists from Grants Office and Venture Capital Firms who invest in early stage IT & Healthcare companies. Find out what are important milestones to achieve prior to raising institutional capital, what are some focus areas VC targeting in healthcare IT and how do investors screen healthcare IT opportunities.

There is no doubt that we stand at a turning point in the history of global health care. Access to health care services is the common element that is uniting individuals, providers and payers in their search to sustain the health and well-being of their societies. Which areas of foreign healthcare IT development are easier to find Reimbursement in the US, are there Single-payer systems within the US open to innovation? Do under-served communities’ healthcare needs provide fertile ground for overseas healthcare IT developments that would otherwise struggle in the private US Payer-based market? Get answers to these critical questions by our expert panelists.

Listen to our speakers and find out how Telehealth Technologies are used for health care delivery, education, and health information services. Get answers to questions like: Should specific devices/apps be recommended or mandated?  Should others be banned?  Who makes these  decisions? How can security and privacy measures be established?  How can you guarantee HIPAA compliance?

Our expert panelists will be examining the current and future landscape of mHealth and mobile telemedicine

Today, a small to moderate-size physician practices are looking to EMRs to expand their practice by streamlining workflow, reducing labor-intensive tasks, such as copying, duplicating and filing, and improving patient care. As EMRs continue to be refined, smaller practices might take advantage of a technology that was once only available to larger practices and hospitals. Sometimes the best technologies are slow to catch on, and electronic medical records (EMRs) or paperless computer files are one such example. While the deluge of information surrounding EMRs makes it difficult for clients or prospective clients to become EMR experts, we can still introduce to our customers the concept of paperless electronic files and help them evaluate their need for this technology and show them how Global Medical Transcription can play a part. Listen to the experts as they discuss best practices when it comes to implementing EMR solutions.

Clinical systems form a significant part of the field of clinical knowledge management technologies through their capacity to support the clinical process and use of knowledge, from diagnosis and investigation through treatment and long-term care.

Listen to experts from Allscripts, Oracle Healthcare & others and learn how clinical systems help you achieve measurable success in patient care environments. Get answers to questions like: Why are clinical systems critical to delivery of care? What are the impediments to adoption of a clinical system in a care setting? and What are some of the innovation in user design to accelerate provider adoption?
