The healthcare industry only makes big significant changes in response to regulation, and we have never had a regulation quite like the CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Rule. Its stated purpose is to “unleash innovation” and it does this by giving patients the authority for 3rd parties to have access to their health information. The expectation is this will catalyze the same disruptive forces that have revolutionized retail and banking – and created entirely new categories of companies like Google and Facebook. During this presentation, we will discuss four different perspectives on how organizations can approach the CMS Rule: technical compliance, holistic compliance, business optimization and digital transformation. We will address the merits of each approach and make a case for organizations to accelerate their digital transformation to disrupt themselves before they are disrupted.

Relocalizing Health begins with an outline for the future of health that is predicated on a health care system that is local, open and independent. The contours of this success have already been proven. Now it is time to expand on these achievements. The book provides an explanation of not only how much money spent on health care is wasted (over $1 trillion), but how it has devastated public health and stolen away resilience from families and communities all across the United States making us much more vulnerable to the impacts of Covid-19. The book details how money better spent on education, primary care, and public health that build up communities is what we deserve given the talent and treasure invested in health.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have been buzzwords in healthcare for several years, but how real are they? Are healthcare organizations adopting AI and machine learning?

This session will serve as an AI and machine learning primer with insights on needed capabilities, common challenges, and best-practice advice; and early findings about what outcomes healthcare organizations are achieving with the buzziest of “new” technologies available to them.

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.
