9:00 AM - 9:45 AM
Opening Keynote

It starts at the first entry point as data is gathered about the patient. If it’s not right at the start, the downstream impact can be catastrophic – wrong patient, wrong medication, wrong clinical decision-making. Join a national and state panel of health information professionals and learn about initiatives that address the fundamentals and interdependencies of ensuring that patient identification is accurate at the beginning and a necessity for achieving interoperability within the healthcare exchange ecosystem.  
Panelists will discuss:

  • Principles of a Clean MPI
    • CHIA Toolkit for Enterprise Master Person/Patient Index 
  • Patient ID Now Coalition (who they are)
    • Patient ID Now Coalition Survey; Pain Points (AHIMA)
  • Interoperability – the next step – organization to organization
    • Cures Act/Health Information Exchange
    • EHI Definition and USCDI – Implications for Exchange and Markers for Identification and TEFCA
    • Privacy & Security Implications

Medical device security initiatives over the last decade have been instantiated through IT due to their characteristics as an edge computing device. As a result, healthcare organizations have had to take some time to understand the operational implications of applying traditional security methodologies when mitigating threats that may impact care delivery and patient safety. While this approach has yielded innovations in technology that baselines communications behavior, device configurations, and visibility into specialized network protocols, we still need to account for context from clinical and operational workflows.

Nearly 3 out of every 4 physicians are employed by hospitals or private equity and this trend is rising. During the COVID-19 pandemic over 100,000 physicians became employees of hospitals or corporate entities. With physician owners decreasing and a continuing trend toward large hospital system consolidation, how will this affect innovation and competition in healthcare? Join us for a Q&A session with Dr. Clarence Lee, Jr. MD, MBA President & CEO of Exhort Health about the need for greater physician ownership and influence in healthcare.

The pandemic took telehealth from a “nice-to-have” to a critical solution overnight. Since the height of the pandemic, U.S. healthcare organizations have embraced hybrid care models that bring virtual workflows into traditional patient care. By applying lessons learned in digital transformation and, in many cases, redeploying resources adopted during the pandemic, many leading health systems are reimagining their virtual care strategy to help address staffing challenges and improve patient safety. Enterprise telehealth is paving the way for virtual engagement at every patient’s bedside to reduce clinical blind spots and amplify the reach of limited staff resources. With this new paradigm in place, there has been a drive to rein in the various solutions put in place temporarily during the pandemic, with more and more healthcare IT teams trying to drive security standards across virtual care workflows.
The true value of hybrid care is only realized with the ability to see and hear in every patient room. The success of virtual care programs hinges on networks’ ability to support uninterrupted, high-quality video communications on a 24/7 basis. This requirement is often not fully understood by health IT teams driving standardized security and network management across the enterprise. In fact, this is often at odds with corporate IT initiatives around network security and performance. Standards that make perfect sense for many IoT devices such as forcing time-outs on logged-in staff, renewing IP address leases, and over subscribing Wi-Fi access points can seriously disrupt patient care. Designing networks to efficiently handle IP address management and support two-way communication at scale is not trivial. Wi-Fi networks must be optimized to handle not only two-way video but the potential congestion caused by connected devices. It is not sufficient to say we have invested millions of dollars in a state-of-the-art network if it is not properly configured to support the high demands of two-way, real-time communications. 
This session reveals practical steps health systems can take to successfully extend virtual care across the enterprise. The presenter addresses key network considerations when designing the tech-enabled Hospital Room of the Future, with emphasis on bridging the gap between IT and clinical teams to ensure an ideal balance between network security and workflow enrichment. Attendees will learn about key network-related factors that can impact virtual care programs and best practices to ensure your network is optimized to support the critical nature of virtual patient care. The presenter will also share sample workflows that illustrate the importance of coordinated planning between IT and clinical teams to ensure all parties are on the same page as they deploy hybrid care programs aimed at reducing pressure on clinical staff and improving patient outcomes.
Learning objectives:
1.    Uncover key network considerations for developing a reliable and adaptable enterprise telehealth strategy
2.    Explore best practices for maximizing security without disrupting care through IT and clinical collaboration
3.    Identify ways health systems are improving clinician and patient experience with hybrid care models

Keeping the growing number of endpoints devices up-to-date and secure is one of the most fundamental tasks for IT-Security. Yet, the need of 24/7 availability and highest possible usability of those devices in healthcare doesn’t necessarily allow the needed actions.
In this Interview style session, we talk to Axel Peters from baramundi software about the current challenges in endpoint management and how to face them with proper techniques and solutions. 

4:15 PM - 5:00 PM

With more organizations keeping important data stored in cloud services, it’s important to understand the retention policies of these services and the potential threats that can lead to permanent loss of data stored in the cloud.
This webinar will focus on the retention policies of popular cloud services like Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace and building a disaster recovery plan to reduce the risk of unexpected data loss. We will examine several case studies and share best practices for backing up cloud data and recovering from malicious attacks targeting cloud services.
Learning objectives:
•    Understand shared responsibility policies of cloud services
•    Learn about retention and backup strategies for data in Microsoft 365
•    Compare different recovery and long-term archiving strategies
