Over 90% of successful companies started out in a direction different from what later defined their success. Beyond health care, the field of innovation has shifted from idea generation to rapid cycle empirical testing. Yet in health care, we often scale new process or technical solutions too quickly, without recognizing the disciplinary steps required to make new approaches useful and valuable. Consequently, many of the best lessons in health care innovation derive from other industries such as retail, entertainment, travel.
In this keynote, Dr. David Asch, Executive Director of the Penn Medicine Center for Innovation and co-founder of VAL Health, will present evidence on the deployment, testing, and refinement of new technologies into the clinical enterprise of a large health system.
Key discussion points:
One of the few constants in life is change, and nowhere is that more true than healthcare. Patient loads are larger. New digital channels bustle with information and compete for doctors’ attention. New technological innovations launch on a weekly basis, or so it seems. Patients are becoming ever more empowered, attending consultations with their own biometric data in hand, and breakthrough technologies in artificial intelligence and virtual reality are major disruptive forces.
In this opening leadership panel, our expert speakers discuss how healthcare organizations are:
Take this opportunity to mingle with your peers in a relaxed setting to build relationships and establish future partnerships. Coffee will be served in the ballroom area so make sure to stop by our sponsor tables. Networking break sponsored by Ensocare and Validic.
In this session, Carolinas HealthCare System will review its journey to create a transformative and innovative model of primary care - one built on value, consumerism, team-based care and thoughtful digital strategy. Importantly, the discussion will address the clinical, operational and business challenges of disruptive innovation within a healthcare organization.
As an example, this session will share key design lessons from Carolinas' Proactive Health practice, which has achieved 80+ percent blood pressure control in 250+ previously uncontrolled hypertensive patients.
As this session will demonstrate, the continuous learning of an agile, emergent strategy approach goes hand in hand with the outcomes produced by technology solutions.
In this session, attendees will learn how NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital modernized its clinical collaboration and communication strategy with an enterprise wide mobile platform. The organization moved its clinicians and staff to a smartphone platform, reducing pager and phone use, and streamlining workflows, resulting in better patient care and greater efficiency.
In this case study, the speaker will explain the process - from identifying pain points, to purchasing the initial 10,000 iPhones to training staff for a pilot in advance of the full rollout. NewYork-Presbyterian now has more than 11,000 active users on the platform - with continued demand from its network hospitals and departments to be on-boarded. Adoption and usage data, which is track monthly, is steady and growing, confirming the benefits of the system.
Consumer wearables and remote patient monitoring once seemed to be on opposite sides of the health tech spectrum. But in the last few years, these two distinct areas have finally begun to merge. The result? Patients can now access easy-to-use and sleek medical grade devices while clinicians gain reliable patient-generated health data and subsequent analytical insights.
However this transformation didn’t come easily. Join Nokia’s Head of Healthcare Products, Nicolas Schmidt, as he discusses the lessons learned along the way and how the future of digital health is being shaped right now by innovative providers across the globe.
Caring for sick children - especially those with serious medical issues - takes a special kind of sensitivity and engagement. Anything a hospital can do to keep kids entertained and positively engaged can have a real impact on their attitude and recovery.
In this session, attendees will learn how Phoenix Children’s Hospital deploys digital technology to deliver better experiences for patients, families, and nurses. Tablets help connect patients with the outside world during what can be an emotional and challenging time. And for nurses, a mobile app improves their efficiency and accuracy. Additionally, integration with the EHR means zero additional work for nursing or IT to set up new patients with the devices.
In this session, will discover how Phoenix Childrens:
Artificial Intelligence and Predictive Analytics in healthcare are shaping a new era in the practice of medicine. Dr. Mault will be sharing the details of this strategy and early examples.
In selecting a new telemedicine platform, Kaiser Permanente Northwest had a key goal in mind: to increase the number of home health evaluations conducted remotely each month and, in doing so, improve the frequency and quality of patient care.
The platform Kaiser ultimately chose did just that. Under its old system, a supervising nurse saw 25 home health patients per month via remote consults with traveling field staff. With the new platform, one supervising nurse now manages 84 patient evaluations per month, and with the hiring of two additional supervising nurses, more than 250 home health patient evaluations are conducted each month via remote consults.
In this session, Kaiser will discuss what platform features it considers critical to telemedicine success, and how those features enhance clinician workflow and improve care and outcomes.
Digital health policy advanced by leaps and bounds in the last year, even amidst all the chaos of Washington, DC. This session will cover the new Medicare reimbursement policies and how remote monitoring is now covered; efforts underway to enable widespread health information interoperability, and the digital modernization introduced by the 21st Century Cures Act.
Come join us to learn how federal health policy is enabling, supporting, and providing reimbursement for digital medicine!
One of the best ways learn is to network with your peers. This session provides an opportunity for attendees to meet with morning speakers and dive deeper into specific topics.
Here's how it works:
Speakers from the morning sessions will be stationed at different tables in the room. Attendees can circulate and speak one-on-one or in groups with individual speakers.
Network, share and learn in this interactive environment.
Take this opportunity to mingle with your peers in a relaxed setting to build relationships and establish future partnerships. Coffee will be served in the exhibit area so make sure to stop by our sponsor tables.
As design harnesses digital, materials and networking technologies, a very new health experience is just over the horizon. Proactive, lifestyle design, tracking real-time health data, non-invasive tools and custom “just for you” treatments based on your actual genome, are here.
These are all real technologies, being used by ordinary people. Together they are leading us to “stage zero” detection and treatment that has the potential to double or better the lifespan of every first-world citizen and this is all the product of technology and design.
This session will highlight to the macro factors shaping these realities, along with an in-depth exploration of the various impacts of and opportunities for design.
In a world of increasingly complex care including connected devices, value-based reimbursement, and integrated systems, healthcare and life sciences organizations are managing unprecedented amounts of data. Learn how healthcare and life science organizations use a unified platform to turn insights into actions, scale teams, expand services and serve more populations.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated neurodegenerative illness that affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
Over time, discrete lesions develop that disrupt neural communication and provoke a wide array of symptoms. How lesions develop, what determines their severity or location, what symptoms arise, and how severe or enduring these symptoms become depends on an interplay between genetic susceptibilities, environmental factors, biorhythms, and even emotional states.
Such diversity in disease behavior makes each person’s illness unique and difficult to treat. That’s where machine learning can help.
In this session, attendees will learn how Duke University's MS Mosaic Study combines mobile devices and user-generated data, machine learning, and participatory medicine to understand multiple sclerosis, augment patient-provider communication, and influence clinical decision support.
The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the study's overcome and existing pain points and future directions, including challenges/solutions to data security, EHR integration, and participant engagement.
Digital health has the capability to change healthcare in a variety of ways. From clinical care decisions to being able to remotely check on patients in rural settings with chronic conditions, but the challenge remains in how to get both clinicians and patients to interact with the digital device or dashboard.
Amy Schwartz, Human Centric Design Thought Leader at Battelle, will discuss the importance of design in healthcare and how small changes can make a big difference in the use, application and placement of digital and personal connected, so instead of an outlier in healthcare, digital devices become as commonplace as stethoscopes.
America spends an estimated $3 trillion on health outcomes, yet the health of its population ranks below other developed countries. A growing chorus of experts now conclude that the poor quality of health in America isn’t due to healthcare expense, but social determinants - the social, economic and environmental factors among individuals and communities.
Where we are born, live, work and grow impacts our health. But it’s only a part of the equation. Distribution of money, resources and power have an additional correlation. Without these factors taken into consideration and incorporated into the healthcare approaches, technologies and models of the future, healthcare delivery risks ineffectiveness.
This presentation will discuss the role that social determinants of health will have on population health, and how technology and innovation can help customize care to enable healthier lives regardless of circumstance and drive better patient outcomes.
Successful care delivery today and in the future depends on patient behavior outside the four walls of the clinic or hospital. It’s not enough to remotely monitor patients and connect to their data: providers and payers must close the loop and influence patient behaviors.
Unfortunately, particularly in the case of chronic disease—patient adherence to treatment is far too low, averaging 50-60% in most populations. It doesn’t have to be.
A new approach has shown impressive results: behavioral economists have demonstrated success at changing a vast array of patient health behaviors (taking medications, performing physical activity, reducing smoking, remote monitoring, etc.).
In our opening session, Dr. David Asch demonstrated how behavioral economics and can be used to drive clinician and staff engagement with new technologies.
In this session, attendees will learn how the same approach can improving patient adherence, and secure a healthcare organization’s ability to thrive under value-based care.
Host Joe Kvedar wraps up the day, recapping the key insights, best practices, lessons learned, and sending attendees home with takeaways to take their own digital and personal connected health initiatives to the next level.
