HCI is looking forward to attending the 2019 CHIME CIO Fall Forum in Phoenix, AZ, Nov. 3-6. During Fall Forum, HCI will be participating in the Golf Reception & Tournament, leading focus groups and attending insightful sessions. Also, as a CHIME Global Partner, HCI will be attending the CHIME Healthcare's Most Wired celebrations.
The forum is a unique opportunity for CIOs and other healthcare IT executives to collaborate with colleagues, reciprocate best practices and discuss material about healthcare IT with fellow thought leaders and industry influencers.
HCI Focusing on 5G and Interoperability at Fall Forum
HCI Chief Technology Officer, Ken Bradberry, and VP of Security and Technology, Ryan McDaniel, will be conducting focus group sessions discussing 5G within Hospital Infrastructures and CMS Interoperability. Below you can find additional information about these specific focus groups.
Implementing and Managing 5G Within Hospital Infrastructures, a CIO’s Guide (Ken Bradberry) : Monday, Nov. 4, 2019 | 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The shift towards 5G can deliver significant improvements in care quality and patient experiences, as well as lower costs and more operational efficiencies. Implementing and managing 5G presents new challenges both from an infrastructure and security perspective. CIOs must examine architectural, security and risk initiatives where patient data is concerned, while addressing the changing expectations of all users across hospital campuses and beyond.
For example, new technologies like Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC), in concert with 5G, will provide a new ecosystem and value chain with 5G networks. Also, it can open their 5G Radio Access Network (RAN) edge to first responders and other remote caregivers to provide that seamless, intuitive and reliable experience while caregivers, patients, family members and providers interact with each other.
The complexity and scale required of today’s HIT environment are creating tough management and budgetary challenges for every CIO. This focus group will take a pragmatic view of healthcare IT infrastructure to implement, manage and secure 5G enabled infrastructures.
CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Rule: Meaningful Use Vol. 2? (Ryan McDaniel): Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019 | 10:00 am - 11:30 am
As of February 2019, CMS is evaluating significant changes around its MyHealthEData initiative. While final policy is still in the development phase, it’s clear that CMS has taken a significant interest in both increasing the access patients have to their clinical data and how extensible that data is in both storage and accessibility.
What are the potential policy changes that may come from CMS? What can clinical care organizations do in preparation? What best practices, approaches and technologies exist, which facilitate interoperability?
During this focus group, we will:
Review CMS position
Consider a range of potential policy outcomes based on past statements and recent policy movements
Address how organizations can begin to prepare for the upcoming changes
