Breakfast with Roundtable Discussions
Join the following companies for a roundtable discussion over breakfast:
Championing the Learning Health System Principles in Children’s Hospitals: Opportunities and Challenges
– Jenifer Cartland, Ph.D.
– Vice President, Data Analytics and Reporting
The principles of learning health systems provide a foundation for continuous improvement, the integration of research and practice, and clinical innovation. How best can analytics and quality leaders promote these principles and support the expansion of learning throughout the health system? What special challenges and opportunities do children’s hospitals have in this work?
Applying Actionable Data in the Clinical Setting: Quality Improvement Innovation as a Full-Team Effort
– Michael Ritchey, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Phoenix Children’s
– Kelly Basfield, VP of Clinical Systems, Phoenix Children’s
Quality innovation that uses real-time, actionable data in the clinical setting is changing the way clinical teams identify issues and shift to new solutions in patient care. Safety dashboards display up-to-the-minute patient safety information, such as compliance with hospital-acquired condition prevention bundles; high-risk medications; prevention and early detection of pressure injuries; intravenous infiltrations and extravasations.
The dashboards allow our unit-based quality teams to quickly respond to the information and adjust care as part of their daily workflow. Seeing data-driven solutions at work empowers nurses and providers to collaborate with technology teams, and quickly test and implement QI projects within weeks, not months. The result is ever-improving patient care.
Telemedicine: Experience and Lessons Learned from a Rural Hub-and-Spoke Model
– Kevin M. Curtis, M.D., M.S., Medical Director Center for Telehealth and Connected Care, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Associate Professor of Medicine, The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
Telemedicine is a rapidly growing method of healthcare delivery that offers the opportunity to improve access to care independent of patient location. In this session, we will discuss telemedicine definitions, opportunities, and challenges in the context of a hub-and-spoke model involving an academic medical center in a rural region.
The Interoperability Imperative: The Importance of Workflow Integration in Virtual Care Environments
– Kathleen Thousand, MHA, BSN, RN, Director of Clinical Services
Virtual care solutions are transforming the way many health systems deliver care. However, a program is only as good as how it is adopted and used effectively. In this roundtable, we will discuss how to design workflows that materially improve clinical and operational processes, as well as the technical requirements necessary for easy provider and patient adoption.
Google Culture and Healthcare
– Andre Kamili, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, Shepley Bulfinch
– David Meek, Associate AIA, LEED AP, Associate, Shepley Bulfinch
Experts predict that by 2020, Millennials will make up 35 percent of the global workforce, with Gen Z making up 24 percent. That equates to more than half the entire workforce population! Is healthcare ready? And how—if at all—have we taken the next generation’s culture of working into account in the facilities we’re designing for today and tomorrow?
Every institution has its own ethos that dictates largely how it operates and designs the spaces it occupies. Millennials are challenging each of these inherent “personas” by stimulating providers and designers alike to look past traditional healthcare planning and programming at what’s next. Today’s med students are entering the workforce in anticipation of Google-like work environments. Join us in exploring healthcare design and next-gen culture, and learn how hospitals are thinking beyond their established four walls to compete with new models of care, staff expectations, and patient needs.
Emerging Trends in Healthcare Cybersecurity
– Andrew Mabe, Area VP of Security and Identity & Access Management 20 years Security, Networking, Telecommunications and Datacenter infrastructure
Healthcare is the top target for hackers. Traditional security solutions are no longer enough to protect healthcare organizations. Next generation security solutions use dynamic capabilities for additional layers of protection against malware, viruses and ransomware attacks. Attendees will learn what it takes to successfully protect their organization from emerging threats and what additional security solutions are required to prevent cyberattacks.
Riding the Consumer Fluid Expectation Wave
-Nicole Latimer, CEO, StayWell
Fluid expectations is the term being used to describe when consumer expectations cross from one industry to another. Do your patients and consumers receive the same level of experience when shopping for care as when shopping for a car?
Discuss the use of UX principles and the right mix of content to provide fluid expectations to your consumers.
Health-based Communities: The Value of Placemaking in Healthcare
– Chris Bormann, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP, Director, Health
– Jason Beshore, Assoc. AIA, CDT, Health Principal
– Susana Erpestad, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP BD+C, EDAC, Health Principal
A well-designed experience, including the physical space, creates human connection and, in turn, promotes healthier lifestyles. Placemaking is literally about how we make places in the broadest sense. Why is it important to design healthcare environments that reach out into the community and create social capital to build trust? How can we address the social determinants of health through community connection and experience design?
Is the RFP RIP? Changes in the Capital Budgeting Process
-Doug Bazuin, Healthcare Research Lead, Insight + Exploration
Capital costs are not what they used to be. When facility capital charges represent less than 13% of the life cycle cost of facility operations, we must look at them in context, not as a standalone, independent item in the budget. This changes how we evaluate them, moving from a “bid = lowest cost” mindset to a total cost of ownership perspective. This discussion will focus on new and evolving ways of delivering facilities faster, with less redundancy and greater adaptiveness to meet both today’s needs and tomorrow’s changes.
Use Intelligence to Connect Care and Improve Outcomes
-Tanuj K. Gupta, M.D., MBA, Senior Director and Physician Executive, Population Health
The shift to value-based care is driving the health care industry to think about care and treatment holistically. This evolution requires the use of technology and innovation to provide a structured, comprehensive plan of a person’s health and care, where intelligence is used to aid in personalizing a strategy for health. This presentation will discuss the importance of a connected longitudinal plan, driven by intelligence, to provide a living, shared view for the person, their care team and personal stakeholders, ultimately driving higher quality and improved outcomes.
