There are hundreds of education sessions for everyone from CEOs and CIOs to IT pros, nurses, doctors and payers. We've talked to the experts and there's a lot of educational opportunities. Here are some highlights of case studies and many industry leaders you'll meet in Vegas this year.
Billing process causes so much confusion that patients say they aren’t 100 percent sure what they owe until the collections agencies call. Providers and payers must band together on smarter benefit design.
Making Choices Michigan offers free advance directive services that Great Lakes Health Connect enables clinicians to access, and Community Manager Carol Robinson said doing so helps the organizations pursue the Triple Aim.
HIMSS18 presenters explain how Hackensack Meridian matches precision payment to precision medicine with an innovative approach to create ‘lanes of care’ that determine efficacy in terms of both cost and outcomes.
The daylong HIMSS18 pre-conference symposium will address the unprecedented level of communication, information sharing, and data integration hospitals, payers and policymakers must undertake in the shift from volume to value.
John Halamka and Paul Cerrato sift through the hope and the hype of personally-tailored care, spotlighting to real-world success stories while not ignoring some significant potential pitfalls along the way.
Hospital information security teams and IT shops are in a precarious spot: They have to not only protect information cybercriminals increasingly see as more valuable than other types, but they also have to safeguard against the next big threat when it’s impossible to know what it will be or when it might strike. It also doesn't help that new types of attacks are emerging just about every month, too: WannaCry, Petya-NotPetya, Locky, just to name a few.
This special project explains why cybersecurity is top of mind for nearly all healthcare organizations as they plan for the future.
There remains a lot of hype about artificial intelligence in healthcare – the potential is very much there, but the reality is the industry is a while away from AI algorithms transforming everyday care. One reason for this is that most hospitals are still on a journey of updating their tools and processes for the digital age. Pagers and fax machines remain a common fixture in even the most digitally mature healthcare organizations.
But that's all changing, and it's happening faster than you can say "Hey, Siri."
This special project looks at the areas where AI, machine learning and cognitive computing are already driving major gains, highlighting case studies, thought leadership and best practices that can help healthcare move AI beyond science fiction for good.
