Breakfast & Registration
SFL HIMSS President Introduction and Speaker Introduction
Speaker: Jean Wright, MD, MBA, Chief Innovation Officer, Atrium Health
A discussion focusing on the road to innovation.
Speakers: Paul Lewis , MD, FAAFP, CPE, CPHIMS, Medical Director, Physician Quality, EBM & Medical Standards, Baycare Health System; Sue Bach, Senior Systems Analyst, Baycare Health System
Hospitalized patients are at an increased Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) risk, and the use of appropriate prophylaxis, chemical and/ormechanical, can reduce this. This session will describe the past and current state of VTE incidence at Baycare health systems. Health System leadership determined the incidence of VTE’s were higher than desired. Over an 18 month period using clinical decision support tools, data and analytics from the EDW and traditional performance improvement methods the incidence of VTEs was reduced by 60% and now are among the lowest in the country. This process resulted in decreased complication rates both acutely and post-discharge, lower lengths of hospital stay and decreased cost of care This sesstion will include clinical questions as well as data and analytics to drive performance improvement across the health system.
Speaker: Representative Gayle Harrell, State Representative | District 83
IntegraTe Conference is taking place during an election year for Florida. As we transition into new Florida administration, many are anxious about the future of healthcare and what role technology plays in this transition. Join this session for an update on the important topic of Healthcare, from a federal and statewide level as well as gain insight in to what’s happening in Washington, D.C. and Tallahassee, Florida.
S Developing a Microservices Architecture Platform to Deliver Distributed Radiology Services Delivering the right image to the right physician at the right time with the right turnaround time has become one of the enduring challenges in radiology. Recently, that challenge has been exacerbated by a substantial increase in imaging demand and a shortage of radiologists. The implementation of deconstructed PACS disrupted imaging technology by allowing healthcare organizations to select best-of-breed solutions. This led to disjoined systems and ineffective technology integration. Envision Physician Services has implemented a three-pronged approach to developing a transformational technology solution. The Envision solution will utilize microservices architecture to provide independent, manageable, bounded service contexts that align with business domains. Already in use by Netflix, Amazon and others, microservices provide scalable, fault tolerant recovery in an already distributed environment. The second prong consists of Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s Platform as a Service, which will allow the continuous delivery of applications regardless of data location. Pivotal will provide a much needed layer of abstraction between Envision and external cloud providers such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud, facilitating the first cloud-agnostic operating environment in the healthcare services provider space. The third approach involves data ingestion: When a data request is made today, multiple IT healthcare stakeholders are needed to setup the exchange and do it securely. The data exchange is limited to the confines of the application ecosystem when it is actually needed by numerous entities. To solve that problem, Envision is creating a “Health-Bus” like platform that will allow connected data to be available to anyone, like a referring physician, once they are connected to the bus.Utilizing this approach, Envision has become the first major healthcare services organization to modernize its service delivery architecture to support the FHIR standard (via Rosetta Health Open Source methodology), advancing the ONC’s ISA. Once completed, Envision’s transformational platform will ingest, normalize and cleanse any data from any source in any format for radiology in an entirely new manner, enabling referring physicians to provide the right level of care to patients quickly and cost effectively.
Speakers: Tina R. Jacomino, MSN, RN, CCP, Administrator of Baptist Health Home Care, Baptist Health South Florida; Leslee Gross, RN, MHCA, CEN, Assistant Vice President of Operations, Baptist Health South Florida
Delivering healthcare to all ages across the continuum with ease and effectiveness is the framework of the Telehealth center. With over 14 programs currently servicing recipients in Florida as well as internationally, our focus is to treat any patient, any time any where, using real time data to decrease healthcare dollars and improve patient outcomes.
The Tele-ICU, has paved the way as the leader in virtual patient care and is the hub for the many programs that have ensued from its robust technical and clinical infrastructure.
Speaker: Pamela King, MBA, CPM, PMP, Health Information Technology (HIT) Outreach Coordinator, Agency for Health Care Administration
Health IT is an evolving landscape. This presentation will showcase Agency for Health Care initiatives and resources supporting the move to value based models of care and patient engagement. This learning opportunity will ensure attendees understand how available services and resources can impact healthcare. Information provided will cover Florida Health Information Exchange (HIE) Services, telehealth, electronic prescribing, and the future of the Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive program. The presentation’s main focus would be on new and improved Florida HIE Service tools, information on potential funding opportunities for participants, and plans for future service development.
Moderator: Elizabeth Rockowitz, Associate Dean, Florida International University
Panelists: Dr. Todd Ellis, Principal, KPMG LLP; Steve Smith, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, VITAS Healthcare; Paul Salmon, VP Quality Analytics, Envision Physician Services/Sheridan Healthcare
The panel will have a robust discussion highlighting:
Speaker: Sam Nimah, CPA, MBA, Chief Executive Officer, Special Care Providers
Initiative: Special Care Unit has been operating since 1991. In this time, we have become the preeminent organization in the function of ventilator weaning. We continue to widen the gap between our results and the competition by investing in technology that enhances our high touch model, while staying true to the unit culture. We seek technology that increases data communication and analysis and rewards positive behavior. We have implemented a Bluetooth enabled solution that measures staff dwell time at each patient’s bedside.
Speaker: Ganesh Persad, Supervisor of Clinical Systems & Interoperability, Memorial Healthcare System in South Florida; Jennifer Goldman, DO, Board Certified Family Physician and the Medical Director, Memorial Healthcare System’s
Initiative: Memorial Healthcare System continued to make progress towards its goal of becoming the most technologically advanced healthcare system in South Florida, adding more technology, more efficiency and more convenience for the patients and families it serves. The efforts are paying off: After the end of the fiscal year Memorial learned it had earned another “Most Wired” accolade from Hospitals & Health Networks, which also named Memorial among the most “Advanced” systems technologically. Only 25 other hospitals and health systems in the nation ranked alongside Memorial in the Advanced category.
Initiative: West Kendall Baptist Hospital (WKBH) has partnered with LifeWallet, Inc. to pilot technology solutions for the hospital’s population-health initiative, Healthy West Kendall. This initiative seeks to identify people at-risk for preventable, lifestyle-related conditions and intervene before a chronic condition can develop. With this in mind, we designed the Sugar Smart for Life program, a next-level intervention to help people with prediabetes learn healthy lifestyle behaviors in an effort to prevent or delay onset of diabetes, reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and improve quality of life for residents.
