    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, deaths from drug overdoses in the U.S. totaled more than 63,600 in 2016, with 42,249 of those deaths attributed to opioids. In 2016, Pennsylvania had the fourth highest opioid overdose death rate in the nation. Within the state, many of counties with the highest death rates were served by Geisinger Health System. Geisinger, recognized as an innovator in the use of EHRs and care delivery models, determined that the health system had an opportunity to reverse these trends. Geisinger developed and initiated several approaches that focused on changing physician practice patterns to reduce the prescribing of opioids. In addition, the health system encouraged physicians to follow pain management strategies that minimized or eliminated to use of opioids. They also enabled electronic prescribing for controlled substances. After launching these initiatives, Geisinger reduced prescriptions for opioids by about half. They also reported e-prescribing for controlled substances created $1 million in savings within five months due to greater efficiencies.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Learn how to use your EHR and clinical order entry systems to identify current practice patterns among providers and track changes over time. (Geisinger uses a provider dashboard which is produced by their analytics platform.)

    2. Develop pain management strategies that encourage approaches other than potentially addictive opioids

    3. Discuss the benefits and challenges of rolling out electronic prescribing for controlled substances across a health system

    Healthcare innovation is inherently intertwined with information technology. Yet that very technology often gets in the way of innovation. The variability in our underlying platforms and lack of interoperability introduce barriers that prevent local innovations from spreading. Join Dave Baker as he describes challenges facing Ascension and the solutions being put in place to accelerate innovation and allow them to scale across the organization. Dave will discuss Ascension’s approaches to establishing an IT Innovation Center of Excellence, managing innovation ideas from across the organization, establishing sandbox environments for experimentation, and building partnerships inside and outside of Ascension.

    Much is being said about clinician dissatisfaction with EHR use and performance-and perhaps rightly so. But, are there organizations who have found ways to better utilize and maximize the functionality of their EHR and if so, what are they doing and who and/or what is to "blame" for their success? In early 2017, KLAS Research began working with a few courageous provider organizations to explore these and other questions. A standard survey was administered directly to clinicians asking for their feedback on their own efforts to strengthen EHR utility, the strength of their organization in that same quest, and the impact of the EHR itself in creating an optimal experience. Now, with over 17,000 responses, trends and tips in successful use of EHRs are available and telling.

      IT security has never been more critical in healthcare, as organizations continue to face an onslaught of cyberattacks targeting patient health records and hospital financial data. One approach to better safeguarding data is to enable strong authentication to ensure that only authorized users can access applications and information. Similar tactics can be taken for clinical workflows, requiring providers to re-authenticate to establish a robust audit trail for all interactions with patient information. However, while these efforts increase security, they also have the potential to create inefficiencies and barriers for users. Participants will discuss how they are approaching two-factor authentication, including what workflows they are securing, the modalities they use today and needs for federated and cloud-based identity management. Participants will discuss the relative value of balancing security and workflow efficiency.

    Still trying to make heads or tails of Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA)? Not sure where to begin with the proposed rule recently published by CMS? MACRA sunsets the existing PQRS, Meaningful Use and Value Modifier programs and wraps them up into a single new program with their own set of requirements, incentives and penalties. This webinar will outline what CIOs and their staff need to know about the new physician payment system, the technology needed to support the new program and an overview of the proposed rule. CMS staff will explain the nuts and bolts of the new program and detail the proposal they have laid out under “Advancing Care Information”, the piece of the program intended to replace Meaningful Use for clinicians. In addition, hear from our reactor panel on what this means for hospitals and how CIOs can navigate this new world.

      Inspira Health Network (IHN), Futura Mobility, Pursuit Healthcare Advisors (Pursuit), and Practice Unite are working together to implement a Quiet Hospital initiative across campuses. Driven by concern for its patients’ care and satisfaction, IHN decided to undertake this challenge to improve care and patient satisfaction as well as to make it easier for staff and clinicians to safely communicate. In support of its mission and at the forefront of creating a quiet hospital is the understanding that IHN must be increasingly sensitive to its patients’ physical environment. The largest challenge was determined to be the noise pollution created by the number of overhead pages created on a daily basis. Seeking to rectify the problem and address other issues, IHN partnered with Pursuit. Together we have implemented a secure communications platform that not only enables clinician communication electronically, but also allows for real-time data sharing. Though the project has not officially finished, join this session to discover how Inspira is already seeing an early return on the investment and a significant value as well.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Explain how using a secure communications platform can improve patient care by creating a quiet hospital
    • Discuss how a secure communications platform can increase patient satisfaction

    Today’s system developers and implementers want to ensure their software applications comply with all applicable standards and specifications while being interoperable and functional with other software applications, technology environments  and systems supported within the provider environment.  While industry wide published standards are commonly used, organizational approaches to testing can vary greatly and impact many areas of a provider’s IT ecosystem.  All too often, system testing is done once and set aside, and does not address sustainable interoperability effectiveness. There is a real need to support multiple versions of specifications at the same time to ensure your organization’s systems are both backward compatible and future proof. This concept is a key pillar of "Continuous Interoperability."   In this webinar, hear from industry thought leaders on the importance of scaled interoperability, the challenges and issues with sustainable interoperability, effective testing practices and approaches as well as ways an open source solution can successfully support provider activities.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    ·         Discuss the Healtheway Compliance Testing Body (CTB) Certification process for the eHealth Exchange

    ·         Identify key factors that makes interoperability testing difficult, yet so essential

    ·         Discover ways improved testing efforts supports overall success of HIT implementations and EHR optimization
