This is an exciting time to be involved in Healthcare IT! Reform, technology advances, cost pressures, an aging population and new patient care challenges are forcing us to rethink how we deliver care to patients. Foundational elements like quality, value, and access to information are driving an IT lead transformation of Healthcare. New responsibilities, opportunities and business models are forcing us to reexamine the role of data and information technology in supporting care. The widespread deployment of electronic medical records is just the beginning of the reinvention of healthcare. Like other industries, health will experience significant changes as the broad market begins to collect and use digital patient information in thousands of new ways.Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom DEF Scott Lundstrom Vice President of Research IDC Health Insights
For years the emphasis in healthcare information systems has been on automating paper-based processes and capturing the data. Yet patient data remains fragmented over many episodes of care, over many departmental systems, and many locations. At best it’s been difficult for clinicians to gain a complete picture of their patients' health status, and even harder to gather that data for useful analysis. Today’s traditional business intelligence tools often provide only a retrospective “snapshot” of clinical and financial operations, with the data too out of date to drive timely actions or impact immediate decisions. In this presentation you’ll learn how a strategic healthcare informatics platform can change this status quo, making it possible drive more informed clinical and financial decisions, at the point of action, based on real-time analytics.Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom DEF Turner Billingsley Cheif Medical Officer InterSystems Kim Humby Product Manager InterSystems

Innovation may be one of healthcare’s biggest buzzwords, and with good reason. The fundamental concepts behind some of today’s most game-changing concepts – Mobile Health, Accountable Care, Patient-Centered Medical Homes, Health Information Exchange, Business Intelligence – began as bleeding-edge ideas that were given a chance, despite uncertainty in the market. And it’s not just healthcare vendors getting in on the game – providers have realized that in-house innovation is key to keeping their facilities at the forefront of clinical care and fiscal success – implementing processes, technologies and services to support these strategic initiatives. This presentation and panel discussion will dive into providers’ perceptions of innovation in healthcare today, including:
- the strategy behind taking innovation in-house - identifying innovative technologies and trends via vendor relationships - supporting and maintaining innovation throughout a health system - driving patient engagement with innovative technologies and concepts - sustaining innovative practices in an age of healthcare reform.Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom H Allison Norfleet VP Business Development Porter Research Cynthia Porter President, Porter Research Porter Research

These national health system models are diverse, but are under similar financial pressures from economic conditions and rising healthcare costs as well as new challenges for more personalized demands for care.Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom DEF Rick Ratliff Senior Executive, Health & Public Service Accenture
In the post-election hangover, where are we now? Regulatory fatigue has caused many in the healthcare environment to wonder how we can survive in the face of so many regulations.

This session will address Population Health strategies and new models of care delivery in support of improving the health, and decreasing the cost, of the care of a population.
Dr. Dunbar will review the model that has been implemented at Johns Hopkins Medicine. The model addresses primary, secondary and tertiary prevention and care of a population with an integrated care system. In the JHM model of care, the Primary Care Provider, a Nurse Case Manager, a behavioral health specialist and a community health worker complete an assessment of behavioral and clinical needs, complete a rounding process and then work to support self-management activities.Location: Grand Cypress Ballroom DEF Linda Dunbar, PhD, RN Vice President, Care Management Johns Hopkins HealthCare
2013 will clearly be a pivotal one for providers, and IT decisions made in the coming year will have long-ranging implications for the organization's sustainability and competitive advantage. In 2013, providers will see ongoing meaningful use implementations intersect with preparations for operating under healthcare reform and implementing ICD-10 coding. These initiatives will combine with the need to overhaul infrastructure to reduce costs, making provider IT decisions complicated. Provider IT leaders need to focus on the long term strategy of the organization, while making good tactical decisions in 2013 that will provide the foundation in years to come. Health Industry Insights' top 10 healthcare provider predictions identify major trends that will impact the U.S. provider IT landscape in 2013. Most include technology that will be transformational for stakeholders, but others simply characterize the evolution of technology currently being implemented and used by healthcare providers.

By the end of this decade, many US health plans are projecting that at least 50% of their revenue will come from new and non-traditional business models. These new models include accountable care initiatives, health and care management services, technology investment and acquisition, health services investment and acquisition and new market entry. ICD-10 implementation will also stress business, financial and technology resources. Health plans must stage technology investment strategies to meet two objectives: sustain the current business and position for future success
