Rethinking Healthcare for the Second Era of the Digital Age

The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the mainframes, minicomputers, PC’s, and the Internet of information. The second generation—powered by blockchain technology—is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business, government and society and transform the old order of human affairs for the better.

He argues that the second era of the Internet has profound implications for healthcare.  The current model is based on clinicians delivering services to passive recipients.  We can move to a new collaborative model where citizens and clinicians co-create wellness.  It can also dramatically change research, science and the management of health care facilities.

Don Tapscott Don Tapscott is one of the world’s leading authorities on innovation, media, and the economic and social impact of technology and advises business and government leaders around the world. In 2013 and 2015, Thinkers50, the definitive list of the Top 50 business thinkers in the world, listed Don as the 2nd most influential management thinker alive. Don’s latest book, co-authored by Alex Tapscott, is Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology behind Bitcoin Is Changing Money, Business, and the World – with a new edition paperback published in 2018.

Identity & Access Management (IAM) and Privilege & Access Management (PAM) Case Study – The Hospital for Sick Children

SickKids is one of the busiest healthcare providers in North America, employing 10K+ staff, admitting 300K+ outpatients, and caring for 12K+ operating room cases a year.  With the large transformation program implementing EPIC, their legacy system that leverage manual user provisioning processes were no longer sustainable.  SickKids engaged KeyData to implement new processes and new IAM and PAM solutions that help SickKids reduce manual processes of on/off boarding.  The implementation required complex data management, data clean-up, consolidation of identity data from various repositories, and integration with several core systems, including EPIC and a Learning Management System. This session will describe the various challenges, lessons learned, and SickKids recommended recipe for success!

Beyond the EHR: Leveraging innovative technologies to take your healthcare organization to the next level

Most healthcare organizations have recently embarked upon the implementation of their EHR systems.  In many cases, these organizations are now finding the need to connect to and use data from other areas, such as their clinical applications, ERP and back office and external applications to facilitate areas such as case costing, connected care, precision medicine and the clinically integrated supply chain.   Oracle is helping customers leverage technology innovations in Healthcare to help organizations take their investment in data analytics to the next level.  Come and hear about real world examples, such as our interoperability project in Australia.

Why you will not deploy AI (anytime soon)

With tremendous excitement about deploying AI in medical setting, the number of successes is low. I will argue for that some of the biggest challenges to deploying AI are systemic, and require evaluation of impact of these technologies on patient workflows and outcomes.

Instead we are working to integrate machine learning tools into existing clinical workflows. I will discuss the technical, human/computer interaction, cultural, and systemic issues that we have needed to overcome to do this effectively.

ML in the OR – safe machine learning for safe surgery

Machine learning is increasingly being used within the operating room to monitor surgical performance and increase safety and patient outcomes. Machine learning, itself, however, has several of its own subtle challenges that can affect its safety. This talk focuses on how explainable AI can help ensure that these technologies can be used safely in the operating room.

Using AI to Improve Population Health Outcomes

As Canada looks for ways to reduce the burden on its healthcare system, better understanding patient populations can help to anticipate the need for acute care utilization and reduce costs. But what is the best way to identify, predict and manage at- risk patient with chronic conditions? This session will explore how attendees can use AI technologies to develop predictive, population healthcare models to target and treat patients before they get sick – and keep them out of the hospital.

    • - Identifying clinical risk factors for patients and provide recommendations, in business and clinical friendly terms, at the point of care
      • - Reuse and exchange decision models across systems and organizations

    - Leverage for population health including patient identification, stratification and outreach

    60 is the new 40: Transforming services across the continuum of care.

    Look around you and one thing is clear: our population is aging. If 60 is the new 40, that means today’s patients – and their clinicians – must take a more proactive and holistic approach to healthcare. More than a series of independent encounters, today the focus is shifting to the complete continuum of care.

    Learn how new cloud-based technologies are helping caregivers collaboratively record, follow and lead patients, leveraging systems able to effectively secure and share essential information – across care environments and providers, across geographies and across time.

    Discover how AI, wearables and telemedicine will improve and streamline care delivery, driven by consumer demand for easier access to services and data-based prevention strategies.

    Explore the modern mentality of cradle to grave care and how your organization can accelerate its journey.

    Virtual Care, eReferral, Central Intake, and Wait List Management – Ontario Success Stories

    The presentation will share real world and live examples of how Ontario is improving Access to Care across the care continuum. From the hugely successful use of virtual care for primary care in the GTA, to central intake for mental health in Mississauga Halton, and to surgical wait list management and eBooking in northern Ontario and beyond, Ontario has made great strides by leveraging home grown technology. These technologies and successes are foundational enabling technologies to support Ontario Health, Ontario Health Teams (OHTs), hospitals, clinicians, and most importantly – patients.

    Exploring Cyber Security Strategies in Healthcare

    The healthcare industry continues to struggle with how to address medical device security in their environments. Acknowledging that these devices potentially leverage cloud-based processing and storage, as well as potentially have local storage; this data, and the connected medical devices that create it, are changing how healthcare organizations are run and how clinicians assess, diagnose, treat, and interact with their patients. However, any networked device that can receive, collect, store or transmit data also has the potential to be compromised.

    • What are some methods that you can identify / quantify the magnitude of devices in your environment?
    • How do healthcare organizations balance the value and risk of Medical IoT?
    • How can healthcare organizations effectively manage and protect all these devices?

    Securely managing Medical IoT requires automated visibility and unified policies for sensors and devices and the data they generate; advanced detection enhanced with real-time threat intelligence; and centralized control that can automatically coordinate response. In this think tank, we’ll explore how and why cybercriminals target IoMT devices, and how these threats can be mitigated.

    Value Realization from Health Technology – An Ontario CMIO perspective

    Healthcare technology and advanced data analytics driven by EHR implementations are fueling improvements in healthcare delivery across Ontario. CMIOs are increasingly challenged with integrating these technologies into clinical workflows to enhance patient outcomes and patient/provider experience. In this session, CMIOs from across the acute care delivery spectrum will discuss and debate how to achieve clinical, business, and operational value from technology investments.

    Session Discussion Topics:

    • Ontario Health Teams - enabling digital health across the care continuum
    • Physician wellness and HIT - the good, the bad, and the ugly
    • Correlating HIT and clinical outcomes - Is more really better?
    • Building a Vendor Relationship - making a business case to a healthcare delivery organization
    • Economies of Scale - learning from each other’s successes
