9:00 AM – Keynote: Healthcare Equity Through Digital Transformation

This Keynote session will explore the anomaly that is our highly fractionalized healthcare environment. How it lends itself to health care inequities—and how, through digital healthcare transformation, we can work towards filling the existing gaps in health equity, together.

10:00 AM — How Mixed Reality is Transforming Healthcare Delivery

Healthcare is experiencing a transformational, tectonic shift in digital technologies—the virtually limitless computing power of the cloud combined with increasingly intelligent and perceptive holographic devices at the edge of the network are creating possibilities we could only have dreamed of a few years ago.

Mixed reality, the fusion of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR), enables clinicians and staff to access computer apps and interact with 3D images in amazing detail wherever they deliver medical services using hands-free, intuitive interaction methods such as hand tracking, eye tracking and natural language input. While the mixed reality market is booming out of industry, the healthcare market is just beginning to tap into its potential.

Join us for a panel discussion with Dr. David C. Rhew, Global Chief Medical Officer (CMO) & VP of Healthcare at Microsoft, Dr. Deborah R. Lee, Clinical Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Clinical Learning Center at the University of Michigan, and Dr. Melissa A. Bathish, Clinical Assistant Professor and Co-Director of the Clinical Learning Center and Simulation Lab at the University of Michigan School of Nursing, to learn how organizations are using mixed reality-enabled devices, such as HoloLens 2 to improve patient understanding of medical procedures, enhance collaboration between geographically-disbursed medical teams, and train healthcare staff with immersive simulation experiences to achieve clinical proficiencies faster and safer.

11:00 AM — Innovations to Reduce Clinician Burden and Burnout

There has been an explosive increase in medical knowledge over the last few decades which has aligned with the “grey tsunami” both in numbers of seniors and the acuity of their medical situations. These factors have collided with not only the massively increased bureaucratic demands of Government and Payors, but also the and heightened expectations of our patients. This near-perfect storm has placed an unbelievable burden on the shoulders of Caregivers. Then nature saw fit to drop on this system, already stretched to the brink, the COVID-19 pandemic.

The physical and psychological impacts are visible everywhere, and there is nothing more important to maintaining the quality, efficiency, and compassion of our medical system than addressing this cataclysmic problem. We are bringing together a discussion of innovative responses to this burden and burnout crisis - to help reenergize Clinicians, to remind them of the reasons we all went into the medicine, and to show them how we can bring new ideas to the forefront to support their truly heroic efforts.

12:00 PM — (Lunch Break) Innovation Expo & Networking Lounges



12:30 PM — Hospital at Home? Hospital of the Future!

Originally studied in the mid-1990s, the Hospital at Home (H@H) model long pre-dates the ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus. However, the COVID-19 pandemic catalyzed the proliferation of the H@H model as hospital systems nationwide quickly initiated programs to deliver care for patients in the home environment.

H@H programs are transforming healthcare delivery and elevating patient experience, while offering significant potential to equalize access across communities, from urban to rural. These programs offer a safe and effective way to deliver inpatient care to patients in the comfort of their own home with close oversight from physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, paramedics, and other care team members. Leveraging a supplier network, virtual visits, in-home visits, and a suite of technology enables the creation of the virtual hospital unit in the home. Advances in telemonitoring and biometric devices continue to propel H@H programs to the forefront of virtual care.

This panel will share an overview of current programs at Kaiser Permanente and Mayo Clinic, a future vision for the model, and discuss current challenges. Panelists will also share actionable steps with session attendees, as key takeaways for advancing the model’s ability to bring hope to those seeking the most optimal environment for health and healing outside of traditional hospital walls.

1:30 PM — SDOH Innovations in Health Care Organizations

Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) as described by the World Health Organization “are the non-medical factors that influence health outcomes.” These social factors can be defined through multiple layers of an individual's network of social, economic, cultural and environmental circumstances. There is growing recognition for the fundamental need to address SDOH in order to achieve the greater goal of improving health outcomes.

Health care organizations are increasingly more invested in exploring new opportunities and creating new options towards achieving health equity by understanding SDOH. The panel will share their experiences around using innovation to address SDOH in their health care organizations including thoughts about data gathering, approaching whole person care, and partnering to achieve greater social impacts.

2:30 PM — Digital Health Legislation & Advocacy

Join us for an engaging discussion on how our community is moving forward on transforming healthcare in California and on a national as well as global basis. Promoting interoperability, expanding telehealth, and advancing maternal health are just a few of the health IT-related issues where California is leading the way and demonstrating to the rest of the community how to lead transformation efforts.

This discussion will feature actionable steps that session attendees can take to support our advocacy work, participate in the policy process, and help shape robust initiatives moving forward. We need your buy-in to succeed and reinforce the HIMSS mission to “reform the global health ecosystem through the power of information and technology.”

3:00 PM — Cybersecurity: Emerging Trends Beyond Regulatory Requirements

Healthcare and public health are experiencing multiple concurrent revolutions that promise to deliver better outcomes at a lower cost for more of the world’s population. Yet a crisis of confidence from ransomware, data breaches, and medical device security may delay, deny, and degrade these benefits.

With an increasing dependence on computing, networking, and data in the healthcare field, “move fast and break things” seems at odds with preserving trust and trustworthiness in clinical care. Learn about existing and emerging cybersecurity trends – beyond just regulatory requirements – that allow healthcare organizations to manage technology risk across their supply chain and chain of operations, in a cost-effective, pragmatic way.

Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), DHS, leads the Nation’s strategic and unified work to strengthen the security, resilience, and workforce of the cyber ecosystem to protect critical services and American way of life.

The catalog is interactive, allowing users to filter and quickly hone in on applicable services with just a few clicks.

CISA’s Role in Cybersecurity

Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risks stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. Cyberspace is particularly difficult to secure due to a number of factors: the ability of malicious actors to operate from anywhere in the world, the linkages between cyberspace and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities and consequences in complex cyber networks.

Of growing concern is the cyber threat to critical infrastructure, which is increasingly subject to sophisticated cyber intrusions that pose new risks. As information technology becomes increasingly integrated with physical infrastructure operations, there is increased risk for wide scale or high-consequence events that could cause harm or disrupt services upon which our economy and the daily lives of millions of Americans depend. In light of the risk and potential consequences of cyber events, strengthening the security and resilience of cyberspace has become an important homeland security mission.
