Greater Cleveland has some of the best health care institutions in the world. Yet it also has some of the worst health outcomes across its population. Across two local ZIP codes, just five miles apart, residents have a 23-year difference in their life expectancy. How can such troubling differences in health and well-being be happening here, in one of North America’s meccas of medical care?
MetroHealth's Population Health Innovation Institute created and launched the Institute for H.O.P.E.™, to help improve health through opportunity, partnership and empowerment. Join Susan Fuehrer, President of the Institute for H.O.P.E. for an overview of their recent work to kick off the 2020 Midwest Healthcare Innovation Summit.

Join to learn the impact of interoperability on patient experience from the patient’s perspective. Review key findings of the HIMSS Patient Experience Study, conducted on behalf of Spectrum Enterprise, to help uncover the silent 7th barrier to your interoperability success. We will weave together research results to support the notion that a foundational digital infrastructure is key to improving interoperability, and ultimately, the patient experience.
Healthcare organizations need to be more agile than ever. This shifting industry – sometimes daily – requires close collaboration among the people of your organization due to the relentlessly uncertain state. This interactive session explores how organizational change management (OCM) can drive results by identifying top OCM contributors to success. HINT: It starts with people.
In the age of digital healthcare, organizations need a new approach to ensure that EMRs work properly after every change and integrate seamlessly with other hospital systems. Traditional manual software testing methods simply cannot cover this vast scope, giving rise to a new approach: intelligent, automated testing. In this session, Dr. Terri Keeling, Vice President, Information Technology and Fred Gutwirth, IT Director, Clinical Applications at University Hospitals, will outline how their organization shifted from an environment of solely manually testing to a hybrid approach encompassing automated technologies. Discussion points include the role of people and processes in ensuring automated testing success; how to obtain departmental buy-in for technology investment; and how to show continued ROI to justify the spend.

Hyper-convergence is a oft-used buzzword now within health IT circles, especially as the advent of new technologies around flexible infrastructure continue to disrupt the marketplace. However, hyper-converged computing represents a unique area of opportunity for healthcare IT teams, especially in the face of demands from leadership for greater flexibility, and lower time-to-market for new built or merged facilities or locations. So what exactly is hyper-convergence and how does it fit into the IT roadmap?
In an EHR survey of over 40,000 physicians from 210 organizations in 8 countries, we found dramatic difference in the physician experience between organizations using the same EHR. What separates the successful from the unsuccessful? How will EHRs continue to grow and evolve? Join us for a discussion with some of the US’ foremost EHR implementation experts to discuss what’s new and next for EHRs after using them for 20+ years.

Clinicians delivering care in the new COVID-19 influenced-landscape are needing more clinical and resource decision support than ever. They, and their non-clinician colleagues, will also need greater interoperability in order to share key data points and information to improve and coordinate care. This new environment is full of both opportunities and challenges for clinical IT leaders who will dive into their core learnings from this unprecedented health crisis.
