Breakfast with Roundtable Discussions
Join the following companies for a roundtable discussion over breakfast:
Employing Clinical Informatics To Boost Quality and Patient Safety: Making the Right Choice the Easy One
– Michael Kelleher, M.D., Chief Medical Officer
– Lee Budin, M.D., Associate Chief Medical Officer for Quality
Improving the quality of health care requires the ability to breed good practices across the organization and to sustain them over time. Clinical informatics offers many tools to expand quality improvement and patient safety efforts quickly and sustain them. Learn how to integrate these skill sets to drive meaningful and long-lasting improvements across your system.
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.
Moms in Recovery: Integrated Treatment for Pregnant and Parenting Women With Opioid Use Disorders
– Julia Frew, MD, Director, Moms in Recovery Program, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
Pregnant and parenting women with opioid use disorders have unique treatment needs and benefit from specialized treatment programs. This roundtable will give participants the chance to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with providing effective treatment to this population and learn about promising models of integrated care.
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.
To Scribe or Not to Scribe?
– Uma Ramanathan, AIA, LEED AP, Principal, Shepley Bulfinch
– Lauren Janney, MBA, LEED AP, ECAC, Principal Strategist, Lens
Today, doctors spend nearly double the amount of time doing paperwork (50 percent) as they do with patients (27 percent). The six-plus hours a day buried in desk work not only diminish patient/physician relationships, but also perpetuate highly inefficient business models with more costly outcomes for healthcare providers and their clients. Enter the scribe.
Still a new concept for many healthcare facilities, scribing is quickly showing real potential as the next big operational advancement for the industry—and many of our clients are partaking. Join us for a conversation on the benefits and challenges of scribing, and learn how scribing hospitals save on average $2,500 per emergency patient visit, why integrating technology increases provider satisfaction, and what today’s leading-edge facilities are doing to change the “face-time” of tomorrow’s healthcare.
Health-based Communities: The Value of Placemaking in Healthcare
– Chris Bormann, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP –Director, Health
– Jason Beshore, Assoc. AIA, CDT – Health Principal
– Sandy Tkacz, AIA, ACHA, EDAC, NCARB – 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.
