SFL HIMSS President Introduction and Speaker Introduction
A Focus on Innovation
Healthcare by definition requires innovation. The industry has innovated since the very beginning and we continue to innovate to find better and more cost effective ways to provide care for individuals and for the human race. This presentation outlines some of the work being done by Intermountain Healthcare focusing on innovation including a keen focus on the need for interoperable data as a base for quicker and better innovation.
Speaker: Marc Probst, MBA, CPM, PMP , Chief Information Officer and Vice President, Intermountain Healthcare
Transforming Heath Care Through Technology
The Agency for Health Care Administration established the Florida Health Information Exchange Services to assist health care professionals provide more informed, proactive, and cost-effective care. In this session, an Agency representative and HIE advocates will discuss how the sharing of patient information enables better resource management and improved patient care.
Discussion will focus on the benefits of two health information exchange platforms managed by the Agency the Encounter Notification Service (ENS) and the State Gateway to the eHealth Exchange. ENS provides real-time notice of patient health care encounters at over 250 hospitals across Florida, allowing improved care coordination and post-discharge follow-up. The State Gateway provides an on-ramp and technical assistance in onboarding to the nationwide eHealth Exchange, a query network that gives providers access to detailed clinical documentation from hundreds of health systems nationwide.
Speaker: Pamela King, MBA, CPM, PMP , Health IT Outreach Coordinator, Agency for Health Care Administration and Aaron Parsons, Manager, Audacious Inquiry; Meredith Marsh, Quality Improvement Officer, Health Choice Network; Ganesh Persad, Manager of Clinical Systems & Interoperability, Memorial Healthcare System
Leveraging Analytics to Standardize Clinical Care, Improve Outcomes and Reduce Cost of Care
The EBCC Department leverages the use of BHSF analytics to provide structure to BHSF in the design, adoption and implementation of relevant and up-to-date synthesized research based clinical pathways and protocols that can be measured real time across the entire patient episode of care; in order to eliminate clinical variation, improve patient safety and reduce cost.
EBCC ensures that BHSF healthcare providers deliver care that is deliberate and coordinated across all services, based on the latest clinical evidence, to provide superior clinical outcomes.
Speakers: Alicia d’Empaire, Chief Data Officer, Baptist Health South Florida and Nora Lissy, Director of Healthcare Information, Dimensional Insight
Digital Transformation Journey….Where Are You?
As your healthcare system’s business requirements drive the need for digital transformation, your role in providing solutions has become more complex. Do you move services to the public cloud, do you use Software-as-a Service, do you create an enterprise cloud, or do you leave things as they are? This session will outline the concept of digital transformation, provide a checklist to help you choose your solutions and give real some real examples from Jose Bellas, CIO of University Health Care. There isn’t just one solution, so make sure your organization makes the choices that meets your needs.
• Define the Business and IT drivers of digital transformation
• Identify the Glossary and buzzwords of Digital, Application and Infrastructure Transformation
• Create a checklist for choosing digital transformation solutions
• Review the use case for University Health Care and other peer organizations
Speakers: Cheryl Rodenfels, Healthcare Executive, Nutanix and Jose Bellas, Chief Information Officer, University Health Care
Join the State of Florida’s leading HIT advocates in SF HIMSS’s panel discussion with Senator Gayle Harrell & AHCA Secretary Mayhew, moderated by Lisa Rawlins, Co-Founder Maury Rawlins and Brown. Senator Harrell and Secretary Mayhew will provide the State’s vision on health information technology with a strong focus on interoperability and telehealth. This interactive panel discussion will provide the audience a rare opportunity to delve deep into the state’s pressing HIT policy issues.
The Future of Telehealth…
Telemedicine has been used successfully to improve patient access to medical care while reducing healthcare costs. However, its widespread use has been limited by non-existent to low reimbursement rates and lack of consumer knowledge issues. However, health systems are looking beyond these challenges and focusing on non-traditional areas of opportunity.
• Optimizing clinical staff distribution and healthcare resources within a healthcare facility and across an entire system
• Enabling primary care providers to conduct appointments without additional office staff at any time, thereby extending office hours and availability
• Reducing the financial impact of patient no-shows
• Improving patient engagement and outcomes
• Reducing unnecessary office and emergency room visits and hospital admissions
• The future of telehealth will depend on: (1) human factors, (2) economics and (3) technology.
Speaker: William Manzie, Administrative Director of Telehealth, Memorial Healthcare System
Reimagining Patient Engagement in Medical Practices
Many healthcare solutions seek to improve the efficiency of clinicians but what about the pivotal role patients play in achieving improved health outcomes? What happens in the patient journey beyond the brick and mortar of the practice setting? This session will address how medical practices can reimagine patient engagement to empower patients before and after office visits.
In this session, Dr. Monica Bolbjerg demonstrates how improved patient engagement reduces the cost of care and improves the lives of patients. Dr. Bolbjerg identifies core components of an effective engagement strategy and common implementation pitfalls to avoid. The speaker shares recommendations to help attendees avoid solution sprawl and implement EHR-integrated resources that mitigate disruption to existing clinical workflows. Session attendees will also learn actionable steps to take to bolster staff and patient adoption of engagement solutions.
Speaker: Monica Bolbjerg, MD, CMO, CMIO, Qure4u
Understanding total cost of care in cancer: A new model for comparing differences by site of care
Oncology providers are under mounting pressure to deliver high quality and increasingly complex cancer treatment, while simultaneously managing the cost pressures coming from payers and patients alike. Developing an effective strategy to compare costs can be an important tool for assessing and improving cost effectiveness and performance from both a clinical and market competitive standpoint. A commercial claims dataset was used to identify cancer patients by site of service. We calculated average annual total cost of care (TCC) for a one year period for patients with a new cancer diagnosis. Although claims data generally contain only high-level clinical information such as procedures, supplies and diagnosis, this limitation can be address by in the context of known standard of care patterns for cancer treatment. Using this approach, national claims sets can be leveraged for understanding the TCC across institutional boundaries while still achieving meaningful comparisons.
