Whatever your role, this selection of talks from Health:Further 2018 looks at some of the key areas of innovation that any healthcare organization should be paying attention to (consumer-driven healthcare, artificial intelligence, design thinking and more). Though we won’t claim we’ve covered it all, these talks highlight a number of key healthcare topics and technologies that are shaping how the United States does healthcare.

How AI Will Change Healthcare Forever

Leveraging Data to Save Patients and Their Communities – The Smart Justice Initiative

A discussion on a real-time exchange of patient care information that leverages a data exchange platform designed for Smart Justice patients to provide a secure structure to share information that can stabilize patients quickly and efficiently. Learn how Loopback Analytics and other partners coordinate the care of emergency room patients with mental health providers in real time to improve outcomes and chronic care management for individuals and avoids the social costs of incarceration when they should be treated for mental illness. An entire community, perhaps an entire state could be saved through such collaboration and responsible sharing of such data.


Provoking Systemic Change Through Design

In spite of decades of advancement in science and technology – and an undeterred rise in spending – we are less healthyas a society than ever before. The one universal truth about our existing healthcare system is that it cannot continue on its current path, and the age-old approaches to shift its trajectory are increasingly ineffective. Design represents one mechanism to effect systemic change, and in this talk Stacey Chang, Executive Director of the Design Institute for Health, will explore its application in some unique circumstances.

Reach Them Where it Matters Most: The Impact of Point of Care on Patients, Caretakers and HCPs

Patients spend an average of 35 minutes in the exam room, and most of that time is spent in a gown, on an examination table without access to technology or resources. Why when we’re in the most critical moments are we without the tools and technology supporting us throughout every other facet of our lives? Outcome Health makes these critical moments more impactful by using technology to bring relevant content into the physician’s office. We believe that patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals converging at the point of care is what will impact the future of healthcare. Nandini Ramani, COO, is part of the leadership team helping Outcome reinvent the point of care experience for all the players involved.


The Technologies that are Re-Humanizing Care

In this session, we will hear from physicians and entrepreneurs who are building the next wave of tools to bring patients closer to their own healthcare. From voice technology that is changing the way physicians interact with EHRs – allowing them more face-time with patients, to VR and 3d printing that literally puts medical information into the hands of the patient, to mobile apps that allow individuals to recognize and track health conditions and developmental milestones, digital health technology is making complex information accessible to everyone involved in care decisions.
