Throughout healthcare systems nationwide, leadership roles and responsibilities keep evolving just as the industry landscape continues to shift. One example of this is how the chief medical information officer (CMIO) role has grown over time, from a liaison between the clinical and technical staff to one that has become less technical and more operational. Join us for a discussion on the skills that CMIOs need to be successful, ensure they have a seat at the executive leadership team table, and can grow/evolve their skills over time to meet the demands of a rapidly changing healthcare environment.

Many healthcare organizations are stretched to their limits to meet the demands of a global pandemic while striving to offer the best possible outcomes for all their patients. Likewise, IT teams are challenged to enable clinicians and staff to perform at their best under highly stressful conditions. Endpoint user experiences, security, and continual access to key healthcare apps – within healthcare facilities or from home – cannot be compromised. In this session, IGEL will discuss how IGEL OS – the next-gen edge OS for cloud workspaces, can help healthcare workers perform at their utmost during the most trying times, from anywhere, while meeting patient data protection requirements. And at the same time enabling healthcare organizations to save money and react quicker to fast-changing conditions during these unusual times.

EMR usability as well as the efficiencies of a well-built EMR are hugely important for physicians. Join our panelists to discuss how they build a culture of partnership between physician and clinician users, and IT personnel, to drive a quality EMR experience, increase EMR engagement, and helping users focus on opportunities for EMR success in their organizations.

Discussion topics include:

  • Developing a non-bureaucratic governance structure that allows for changes to be made quickly to the EMR when needed
  • How they developed initial training programs, recognizing that the quality and duration of initial training are the top predictors of an individual’s EMR success
  • Building a culture of sharing, continuing education to support mastery of the EMR and helping clinicians become superusers by training them not only to successfully get data into the EMR but also to efficiently get data out of the EMR
  • Building a quality EMR – cutting through the hype and choosing a vendor that work for their organization, based on best practices and feedback from the users

Leaders at the University of Minnesota Health and Fairview Health Services, together with researchers from Amgen, have collaborated to create a framework for better predicting the potential for severe infection among chemotherapy patients. Approximately 20% of advanced cancer patients receive treatment that weakens their immune systems and increases the risk of life-threatening infections, in particular, a form of infection known as febrile neutropenia. A good proportion of these complications can be prevented using FDA-approved medications. The problem? There has been no clear standard of care with regard to the prescribing of those medications, with countless patients remaining at undetermined levels of risk. Leaders from all three organizations created a multidisciplinary research team to investigate this issue, extracting data from over 50,000 patients to identify over 8,000 eligible patients at risk for febrile neutropenia and provide granular details into its rates of occurrence. They will share their data analytics journey during this session that is part presentation and part discussion.

Opioids overdose deaths continue to increase in the United States and NCPDP has had a priority focus on developing a solution to help address the epidemic since 2013. Join Lee Ann Stember, NCPDP’s President & CEO, as she provides an overview of NCPDP's standards-based model for prescription drug monitoring programs (PDMPs) with best practice guidance to help providers to make informed decisions at the point of prescribing. The model solution is intended to provide access for patients with a valid medical need and reduce fraud and abuse. PDMPs, the state-operated databases that collect information on dispensed medications, have evolved historically since the program was first enacted in 1939 in California to enforce drug laws. Still, the overall effectiveness of PDMPs is challenged by a lack of standards to share drug abuse information within and across the states to address potential drug abuse and diversion. Stember will also share her personal connection with the issue, with a special guest and a call to action on how to engage and help make a difference.
