Leveraging digital health to rebuild trust in American healthcare
Physician burnout. Lack of access to high quality health care. Miserable patient experiences. High out of pocket costs. Lack of an person-centric longitudinal health care record. All of these things and more have created an environment of distrust in our health care system. Digital health holds the promise of reinventing workflows, becoming more person-centric to deliver a whole-person care experience, and helping physians to practice at the top of their license every day. National thought leader Ryan Howells who works extensively on the policy and technological problems encountered by physicians and patients everywhere will discuss what is being done to clear a path for digital health to (finally) help move health care to be more accessible, affordable, and value-driven.
How are HIEs evolving to meet the needs of a digital health ecosystem? What new private sector companies are emerging to tackle how FHIR-first companies are connecting to datat holders? Will new delivery models and platforms affect how data will be exchanged in the future? Learn more about how new digital health and delivery platforms will help in establishing trust in the health care ecosystem.
Medical devices and remote monitoring: Building trust from beyond the inpatient setting - 2:00pm - 2:50pm
Medical devices are becoming more portable and ubiquitous. The Internet of Things (iOT) is expanding the health care system’s ability to monitor patients wherever they are, whenever they need it. Come learn from thought leaders who are leading innovation in the medical device, remote patient monitoring, and iOT space.
In many parts of Georgia, access to primary and urgent care are becoming harder to come by. Telemedicine provides great promise to non-urgent acute care situations but broadband access continues to be a challenge. Underserved and communities of color in rural Georgia lack the necessary access they need to high quality care. What can be done about it? How do we prioritize and where do we start? Our expert panel who have been working with rural communities for years will examine these questions and discuss what’s being done.
Meet the Innovators: What’s new in digital health that will benefit both patients and providers - 1:00pm - 1:45pm
These innovative companies will discuss the latest technologies they are building including : app-based access to a patient’s longitudinal patient records across both health plans and providers, AI health care at home platforms, extracting real-time health data from patients using video software from patient’s phones, and RFID technologies.
How COVID advanced public health data modernization with CDC and their state and local partners - 2:00pm - 2:50pm
COVID19 has shined a light on the urgent need we have to modernize our public health infrastructure. The last two years have significantly advanced the public health digital infrastructure. During the early days of COVID, fax machines were on overload around the country as hospitals send faxes to identify persons under investigation. By the end of COVID, hospitals had digitized the necessary information to automatically send data to HHS and CDC to rapidly deploy resources where they are needed. Patients were able to abandon their paper CDC card for a tamper-proof, QR code called a SMART HealthCard in many states across the country. Come hear more about these exciting projects as well as the CDC’s plans for data modernization using recently appropriated federal funding.
As a result of 21st Century Cures and industry consensus, an unprecedented number of health care federal data policies have been released over the last few years including: the ONC and CMS interoperability rules, TEFCA version 1, hospital and coverage price transparency, good faith estimates, electronic prior authorizations, and more. This panel will include the policy makers who wrote the federal rules and a health plan who is implementing many of them.
