Industry Solution Sessions at HIMSS

Advancing Care Delivery with Device Data and Analytics

Panelists: HCA, Baxter International
Tuesday, April 18, 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. | S403
  • Sherri Hess, Vice President, Chief Nursing Informatics Officer, HCA
  • Traci Reed, Director, Data Science and AI, Baxter International
  • Nicholai Mitchko, Manager, Solution Partner Sales Engineering

Healthcare delivery organizations are under enormous financial and staffing pressures, so it is more and more important to leverage data effectively to optimize staff workflow and organization efficiency. Device data is an underutilized asset for this purpose.

This session covered the current state of the industry, how digital solutions can help surface clinical insight, and how better analytics can lessen the burden placed on nurses and other clinical providers who are often faced with time constraints and information overload. Presenters described the pitfalls and opportunities for integrating medical device and other sources of operational and clinical data.

Combining robust data with advanced, custom analytics can help staff better understand risks, ease the challenges of managing complex patients, and improve care delivery. These advanced analytics also support executives as they seek ways to increase clinical team satisfaction and keep the organization healthy.

The Great Digital Health Experiment

Panelists: CVS Health, Arkansas Blue Cross, AdventHealth, XRHealth
Wednesday, April 19, 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. | S402
  • Bryan Tate, Clinical Data Product Lead, CVS Health
  • Jim Adamson, Business Transformation Lead, Arkansas Blue Cross
  • John Slavich, Director of Interoperability and Integration, AdventHealth
  • Eran Orr, Founder & CEO, XRHealth

Healthcare as a whole is undergoing profound transformation. We are moving from a clinic- and hospital-based model of health and care to a market system designed to meet current consumer expectations and powered by digital health, big tech, pharmacies, and big box retailers. It is a colossal experiment in system redesign, and like any healthcare experiment, validation and success measurement will require data – lots of it!

This session brought together perspectives from both traditional and new market entrants to consider the challenges and opportunities that come with disruption, and the role of information in ensuring that everyone benefits.
