With today’s emphasis on value-based care, it’s more important than ever to focus on the health of the entire patient population across the care continuum. As care moves from the hospital to lower cost settings, including the home, a more holistic approach - one that emphasizes outcomes, patient compliance and activation, and patient-clinician communication - is key. The Population Health and Patient Engagement Track will highlight innovative solutions for delivering effective patient care across a range of conditions and acuity levels, touching on the underlying digital health platforms and technologies. Speakers will discuss their case studies and experiences using technology to benefit ambulatory patients with chronic diseases, post-surgical patients and the frail elderly.

Critical Care Suite
Today’s critical care departments face a multitude of challenges—more patients requiring around-the-clock monitoring, an aging population creating the need for more critical care beds and a growing shortage of clinical specialists, just to name a few. With a focus on innovative virtual acute care solutions and those that help reduce clinical cognitive load at the bedside, the presentations in this track will give you the insights you need to meet these challenges. Speakers will present practical ideas, case studies, and stories of real-world experiences that will inform and inspire you to transform your critical care unit from bedside to webside.

 

eICU/eAcute
Tele-ICU is considered by many a standard of care and the nation’s largest tele-ICU network is powered by Philips. Join eICU clinicians from across the nation as they share their experience using centralized, technology-enabled care transformation programs to improve clinical, financial and operational outcomes in the ED, ICU and Med-Surg areas.

 

Point of Care
Critical care settings are among the most stressful places to work. Monitoring patients and processing information in real-time, at the point of care requires focus and continuous access to data. A lot has changed in recent years to improve the way we receive and process patient data. More patient data is available now than ever before and the challenges and demands of integration, storage, and distribution are increasing as well. We’ll discuss workflow improvements, clinical decision support tools, medical informatics, and recent innovations that impact how you care for acutely ill patients.

 
 
 
 
Monitoring patients and processing information in real-time requires focus and continuous access to data. Yet with limited staff and increasing numbers of patients, how can we identify those patients at risk and once identified, how do we know what to do? The General Care Track will focus on the latest ideas and solutions for leveraging innovative technology for more informed clinical decisions in the General Ward. Speakers will share best practices and case studies on topics such as clinical support tools, data integration, workflow, and mobile solutions, providing you with the insights you need to confidently deliver quality care everywhere it matters.

Today, healthcare IT teams face some of the most daunting challenges of any industry: increasing numbers of connected health devices, the unprecedented growth of unstructured data and systems, and rising and increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. At the same time, the IT function is rapidly transforming from its traditional role in supporting care towards digital care delivery across the enterprise. This track will address these challenges, highlighting how data and analytics can help uncover opportunities and drive transformation in how imaging departments operate. Speakers will touch on a wide range of related topics including process improvement, integration and interoperability, and enterprise imaging strategies, all with a view towards delivering more value to patients.

As patients undergo multiple scans producing an array of multi-dimensional data, there is a growing need for intelligent solutions to help address the biggest challenges radiologists face in simplifying data and insights gathering, and ultimately improving outcomes. The Clinical Informatics Track will highlight digital imaging systems, smart devices, informatics, and services that can arm radiologists with the tools they need to break down the silos, unlock actionable clinical insights and deliver more seamless care. Speakers will touch on topics such as anatomical intelligence, artificial intelligence, mobile solutions, and the meaningful use of electronic data across locations, care providers and people.

Imaging is all about providing accurate information to guide better patient care. But in order to create more value for patients, the elements that form the imaging enterprise – data, technology and people – have to work together better. In an environment that’s dynamic for all and stressful for most, understanding the unique needs of the people behind the image – patients, technologists, radiologists and administrators – offers important insights to help us address their biggest challenges. In this track, we will approach imaging as an integrated system and look at opportunities to better connect data, technology, and people across the imaging value chain for better imaging outcomes. Speakers will present practical ideas and real-world experiences aimed at creating a greater value for patients and a better imaging experience for all.
