    Afternoon Breakout Sessions



    Track 1


     1:30-2:25pm

    Brought to you by:


    Panel "Securing ePHI: Protecting Patient Privacy Throughout the Continuum of Care"

    The current security risks for ePHI are well known and HIPAA updates continue to maintain security in both policy and in action.  That said, the risks today are not the risks we faced just five years ago or those we will face five years from now.  As new technologies evolve and access to ePHI becomes more prevalent, it is critical to have a security plan in place that will change proactively as new technologies are implemented and new stakeholders are incorporated into the health care landscape.


    Learning Objectives:

       ∙ Best practices and strategy for securing ePHI
       ∙ Assessing risk across your organization
       ∙ Understand breach prevention & protocol
       ∙ Accountability & HIPAA education

    Panel "Improving Patient Engagement through Mobile Technology"

    Mobile technologies offer providers the opportunity to enhance quality of care and engage patients in their own wellness like never before.  Numerous studies have demonstrated a correlation between engaged patients and improved outcomes.  Additionally, mobile solutions have the potential to improve team collaboration, responsiveness and accuracy.  Mobility can provide event-driven, real-time notification and patient care alerts delivered directly to the patient or clinician, fostering a closer relationship between patient and provider.


    Learning Objectives:

       ∙ What's been working, why, and where are we headed?
       ∙ Mobile solutions to engage patients
       ∙ Challenges associated with an increasingly mobile care environment

     Brought to you by:


    Panel "Moving the U.S. Health System Forward with HIE"

    Electronic medical information is one of the most important care support tools available in health care today. EHR functionality is greatly enhanced when providers can exchange patient data in a meaningful way. However, with patient data siloed across large, diverse geographic areas, and with privacy and security concerns, nation-wide health information exchange is a very complicated task.  Exchanging ePHI between provider-provider and patient-provider is paramount in realizing the full potential of health IT.

    This session will address:

    1.    ∙ Developing critical physician and patient participation
    2.    ∙ Eliminating redundancy
    3.    ∙ Impacting public health  
    4.    ∙ Integrating patient facing technology in HIE

    Track 2

     4:10-5:10pm

    Brought to you by:


    Panel "Utilizing EHRs for Patient Engagement and Improved Outcomes"

    As EHR implementation and adoption becomes more commonplace across the health care environment, providers are beginning to focus more on maximizing the value from their investment.  Stakeholder engagement is a critical success factor for the effective use of EHRs and other health IT and patients are one of the last, and most important, groups to get involved in this process.  While EHRs continue to evolve and technologies like patient portals become more common, providers have the opportunity to drive improvements in quality by encouraging patients to become an active participant in their own care.

    Learning Objectives:

       ∙ Defining patient engagement for your organization
       ∙ What EHR data can keep patients engaged
       ∙ Measuring the impact of patient engagement
