8:00 am Registration Opens 8:50 am Opening Remarks 9:00 –10:10 am Provider-led Interoperability Coordinated, accountable care is impossible without true semantic interoperability. Impatient with the slowness of proprietary EHR-vendors, health systems are increasingly adopting a proactive approach to interoperability. The ONC has developed a 10-year Interoperability Roadmap and several provider and vendor-driven interoperability initiatives are underway. Using technical standards like HL7, SMART and FHIR. This session will provide an up-to-the-minute snapshot of the post-EHR era and how advanced health systems are leading the way to interoperability. 10:15 – 10:40 am Introductions to Living Groups and Group Activity Spend 25 minutes meeting with your conference ‘Living Group’. Attendees will be grouped together so that starting on Day 1 you will have an opportunity to meet new contacts and maximize your conference experience. In addition to meeting your Living Group, you will also take part in an interactive activity to determine the top challenges facing the HIT industry. The top challenges for each group will be announced at the end of the session! 10:40 - 11:25 am Morning Networking Break Take this opportunity to mingle with your peers in an intimate setting to build relationships and establish future partnerships. Make sure to stop by the vendor booths to learn which solutions can provide better care and service in 2016 and beyond. Have a specific topic you are looking to have addressed? The “Meet the Experts” program will allow attendees at the Summit unique access to subject matter experts from leading healthcare IT solution providers from across the U.S. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore specific topics and challenges they are facing to be addressed in a one-on-one intimate environment that will help foster the growth and effective use of technology across the healthcare industry. 11:25 – 12:10 pm Opening Keynote 12:10pm - 1:30pm Lunch Take this opportunity to mingle with your peers in an intimate setting to build relationships and establish future partnerships. Lunch will be served on the exhibit floor so make sure to stop by the vendor booths to learn which solutions can provide better care and service. 1:30 - 2:25 pm BREAKOUT SESSIONS: Transforming Security & Data Protection in Health Care The 2015 high-profile hacking in healthcare was a wakeup call for most health systems. As a result they have not only doubled down on basic security strategies but shifting to more proactive approaches including joining national information-sharing organizations like NH-ISAC and launching robust employee education programs that address the new challenges of security in the cloud, mobility and big data. The emergence of the Chief Information Security Officer or CISO in a way that integrates the traditionally separate functions of security and privacy signals this new attention. This session will describe a multi-pronged approach to cybersecurity from the perspective of the CISO. Improving Outcomes with IT and Workflow Alignment Workflow is the unsung hero of healthcare IT, often underestimated in its significance to IT-enabled clinical transformation. However, every CIO knows good workflow design and implementation are essential to avoiding the pitfall of merely automating existing, outmoded processes. With the need to seamlessly connect the entire care team—including patients and their families—workflow becomes even more important to IT-enabled coordinated care. This session will address the problem of clinical workflow and IT from the design perspective and showcase examples of how attention to workflow from the start can result in not only improved patient outcomes but return on investment for IT as well. 2:35 - 3:20 pm BREAKOUT SESSIONS: Case Study #1 iHT2 case studies and presentations illustrate challenges, successes and various factors in the outcomes of numerous types of health IT implementations. They are interactive and dynamic sessions providing opportunity for dialogue, debate and exchanging ideas and best practices. This session will be presented by a thought leader in the provider, payer or government space.

In contrast to EHRs which are transactional and focused on encounters, remote monitoring and other forms of telehealth create continuous streams of data that will only exacerbate this issue. How do you make sense of this inundation of data about individuals and populations? This session will address how to use data analytics within the context of workflow so that it improves outcomes. 5:10pm - 6:10 pm Opening Cocktail Reception 7:00pm - 9:00 pm Leading Edge iHT2 is hosting this private dinner to wrap up the first day of the Health IT Summit. Guests include program attendees, speaker faculty and other participating senior healthcare leaders. As the dinner is a casual affair, we will be enjoying fine wine, cocktails, a wonderful dinner, and great company! Dinner will not feature long winded presentations but will be spent getting to know your peers, learning more about industry challenges and concerns so we all can better serve the community and help to improve the quality of our healthcare system. *This dinner is by invitation only - if you are interested in attending please contact Madie Bitondo at (561) 701-5895 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
