How can we deliver healthcare differently and lead all stakeholders to a healthier nation? An in-depth assessment of our current and future healthcare landscape and the impact health reform is having. A keener understanding as to the nature of the emerging innovative health delivery models and how best to navigate and implement them to achieve meaningful success.

8:40 Health IT, Health Reform, and the Path Forward

Steven StackSteven Stack, M.D., President-Elect, American Medical Association

The current healthcare environment brings seismic changes for physicians, from EHRs to telemedicine to implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The opportunity to improve patient care and safety through these and other changes is great, but so too are the challenges. This session will explore how recent legislative and regulatory requirements are impacting physicians and how technology can be leveraged to overcome existing challenges, increase efficiencies, and ultimately improve patient care.

9:10 The Confluence of Consumer Care and Two-Way Data: Apple HealthKit, Care Management, Patient/Family Engagement, Privacy

John HalamkaJohn Halamka, M.D., MS, CIO, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

With the launch of the Apple HealthKit we are seeing the consumerization of healthcare becoming a reality. What are the implications of this transformation for care management, patient/family engagement, and for privacy? With the confluence of consumer care and data where are the opportunities to better identify risk in populations and to improve quality? With the growth and availability of two-way data (to-from patients) what is the hope vs the hype of mobile tech?

Phil PolakoffPhil Polakoff, M.D., National Health Advisor; US Surgeon General Nominee; former Advisor to US Senate Leadership and California Legislature

 

We all hear about potentially marvelous advances in healthcare technologies that will enable coordinated, efficient, high-quality care. But many organizations are struggling with incremental improvements to systems that woefully and evidently fail to fulfill well-acknowledged business requirements. Our expert panelists are working at the frontiers of what is possible and what is actual in healthcare IT and will offer their insights and prognostications as to what we can reasonably expect from technological advances in the coming years.

  • Looking at our interoperability challenges, and the un-integrated reality we are working in now, what are the biggest challenges we are facing in health IT today?
  • Looking beyond an individual hospital system or a State HIE, what do you believe to be the long-range technology developments that will enable needed transformations in the US healthcare system? What is a realistic timeline for these technologies not only to become generally available, but also generally deployed?
  • What are you working on now in your world to get us to this possible future state? What are your priority challenges to overcome in the immediate term (in the next year), medium term (3-5 years) and longer term?
  • Where are we wasting too much time and money, or investing in solutions that we will just have to replace as obsolete as soon as they are deployed? What is your advice for policy and health IT leaders in the field?

HEALTHCARE SECURITY AND PRIVACY PRACTICES FOR THE NEW ENVIRONMENT 

11:05 Chairperson’s Remarks
Anne LaraAnne Lara, CIO, HIS, Union Hospital 





11:10 A Vast and Changing Landscape: How Security and Privacy Practices Shape the Scenery

Karl WestKarl West, Chief Information Security Officer; Assistant Vice President, Information Systems, Intermountain Healthcare

Cyber-attacks are spiraling all across the world. Today’s cyber-attacks are not the cyber-attacks of a decade ago and the same holds true for cybercriminals. Unfortunately, healthcare has become a high-value and enticing target for criminals, complicating strategies for such things as de-identified data for research, HIPAA breach notification rules, vendor assessment, and patient consent. The role of the CISO must keep in step with this changing landscape by understanding the sociology, anthropology, and workforce demographics of his or her organization in order to continually assess risks, influence the organization’s behavior, and create a culture of cooperation to navigate the competing interests of IT and security.

11:35 Protecting Privacy without Harming Patients

Eric LiedermanEric Liederman, M.D., Director, Medical Informatics, The Technology Group, The Permanente Medical Group

EHRs and HIEs are powerful tools enabling collaborative care and "right now" access to medical information whenever and wherever needed. Yet this important capability creates the risk of privacy breaches by authorized individuals. Addressing this risk through a web of access restrictions risks harm to patients. An alternative approach, forensic audit data mining combined with selective use of Break the Glass alerts, creates a culture of self-deterrence of snooping, while retaining the collaborative power of electronic health systems, and allowing good, highly trained people to keep their jobs in the face of temporary temptation.

2:10 PANEL DISCUSSION: Tugs-of-War: Authorized Sharing of PHI and Ensuring Privacy and Security

HIPAA allows the use/disclosure of and access to PHI… but it gets blurry! The risks are greater than ever, and healthcare organizations must successfully juggle the ever increased requirement to comply and the need to safeguard. This panel will discuss how to predict and prevent the risks of unauthorized access, over sharing, and breaches of privacy.

ROLE OF A MODERN CISO: MORE THAN COMPLYING WITH HIPAA/HITECH, MORE THAN TECH, MORE THAN RISK MANAGEMENT 

8:50 Chairperson’s Remarks
Eric LiedermanEric Liederman, M.D., Director, Medical Informatics, The Technology Group, The Permanente Medical Group  





9:00 Justifying the Role of an Information Security Analyst

Anne LaraAnne Lara, CIO, HIS, Union Hospital

Complying with HIPAA/HITECH regulations and meeting Meaningful Use requirements are challenges for all healthcare providers. Small community-based organizations with limited resources are especially taxed to implement and monitor compliance to the requisite information security controls. This presentation will provide one community hospital's journey toward the realization of HIPAA/HITECH compliance. Such realization included the creation of a dedicated information security analyst position; the enactment of policies and procedures; the establishment of monthly educational programs; the implementation of tools such as mobile device management, web filtering, and audit logging; and the ongoing auditing of the electronic health record for appropriate access.

9:25 A Modern CISO's Role is More than Tech: Achieving the Elusive Balance Between Information Security and Human Factors

Sumit SehgalSumit Sehgal, CISSP, CISA, Chief Information Security & Privacy Officer, Boston Medical Center

This presentation will share a unique perspective on the role of a modern CISO. A CISO's role is more than technology implementation and risk management. Understanding sociology, anthropology, workforce demographics and cultural context will allow you to build your programs and systems in a more user-friendly and sustainable way and to, ultimately, influence behavior and workflows.

ENSURING TRUSTWORTHY INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR HEALTH AND WELLNESS IN THE ERA OF BIG DATA 

11:00 Big Data, Big Bucks and/or Big Problems?: Balancing Security, Privacy and Access

Marti ArvinMarti Arvin, Chief Compliance Officer, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA Health System

This presentation will discuss how big data is being used in health care and its impact on healthcare organizations, physicians and consumers from a security, privacy and access perspective. It will include the need to balance privacy and security of devices and data against the desire to have flexibility and access. What are the benefits and risks of using big data? What is your view as a consumer and/or healthcare professional on striking this balance while mitigating risk?

11:25 NSF Case Study: Trustworthy Health and Wellness

David KotzDavid Kotz, Ph.D., Associate Dean of Faculty for the Sciences, Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS), Dartmouth College; Principal Investigator, Trustworthy Health and Wellness (THaW)

This talk will present a brief overview of a large NSF-funded project that aims to tackle many of the fundamental research challenges necessary to provide trustworthy information systems for health and wellness, as sensitive information and health-related tasks are increasingly pushed into mobile devices and cloud-based services. The interdisciplinary research team includes expertise from computer science, business, behavioral health, health policy, and healthcare information technology to enable the creation of health & wellness systems that can be trusted by individual citizens to protect their privacy and can be trusted by health professionals to ensure data integrity and security. Although these problems are motivated by a nationally important application domain (health and wellness), the solutions have applications far beyond that domain.

11:50 The Coming New World Order on Health Care Privacy and Data Security

Kirk NahraKirk Nahra, J.D., CIPP, Partner, Privacy, Wiley Rein LLP

Data is the lifeblood of any health care business. While the health care industry has struggled with the HIPAA Rules for more than a decade, there are enormous volumes of new data being generated outside of these rules, from mobile applications, health care web sites and elsewhere. There is enormous new pressure to regulate this "non-HIPAA" data. Learn how the rules will change and how this will affect the use of data across all aspects of the health care industry.

1:50 The Coming Era of High Performance Medicine

Jason BurkeJason Burke, Senior Advisor for Innovation and Advanced Analytics, UNC Health Care and School of Medicine

Can medicine truly become a performance-driven industry? The complexity residing at the intersection between the science of medicine, the delivery of health care services, and natural patient variation has made it difficult to scale organizational performance beyond the effectiveness of individual contributors. Yet other fields such as space exploration, battlefield operations, meteorology, financial services, and automotive racing have demonstrated that comparably complex systems can be characterized and even managed to very high levels of performance. By adopting similar capabilities in the context of population health, accountable care, and personalized medicine, health and life sciences organizations can unlock a new era of clinical, financial, and operational high performance.

2:20 Forecasting the Impact of HIT and e-Health on the Future Demand for Physicians

Jonathan WeinerJonathan Weiner, Dr.P.H., Professor, Health Policy & Management and Health Informatics; Director, Center for Population Health Information Technology (CPHIT), Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Few factors will change the face of the American health care workforce as widely and dramatically as will health IT and e-health. This presentation explores how such applications will affect the future demand for physicians, and other clinicians. Professor Weiner will discuss the premise that HIT systems, when fully implemented, will allow care to be delivered by fewer physicians and more nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Furthermore, HIT-supported generalists could provide some care now delivered by specialists. Health IT could also help address rural clinician shortages patients by enabling care to be delivered remotely or asynchronously. Dr. Weiner will discuss the implications of these and other health informatics trends on what some believe to be a looming shortage of physicians.

Our esteemed panel will summarize the key theme of the conference, how technology and analytics enable providers to better engage and manage patient populations, and ultimately achieve a higher quality at lower cost. Specifically, we will address strategies to transforming care models to shared risk using technologies. Areas of discussion will include:

  • Should we fire the CMO? Who are the ideal clinical leaders to drive this successful change?
  • How can provider organizations invest in the future without going broke today?
  • How does an ACO navigate the conflicting financial incentives?
  • What is the technology that can support ACOs?
  • How will we get to system wide Accountable Care in less than 10 years!?
