    We will engage in a lively discussion of powering technology to drive patient engagement across the continuum of care. We invite leaders from health systems to share how they are using technology to engage digitally with patients, families, and communities. We will openly share our struggles and successes of using technology to achieve a level of engagement that supports outcomes and a value-based payment model.

    Healthcare organizations across the country are building and buying innovative patient engagement tools and strategies in order to remain competitive and meet the ever-demanding need of consumers. Patients expect and want to interact more with hospitals through digital channels like email, apps and social media rather than interacting on a traditionally personal level with clinical and financial back office staff. In response to this need, healthcare technologies are increasingly becoming more patient-facing and are driving toward consumer-centered healthcare. Use of patient engagement technology, access to full medical records via EHRs, and other digital communication tools are significant determinants of high patient satisfaction.

    What is your comprehensive digital patient engagement strategy? Build vs. buy and why? What challenges have you encountered in aligning to your organization’s strategy? What most concerns you about patient interaction and engagement? Describe the technology your organization uses to engage with patients, families, and communities. Is the technology you are using successful? Why or why not? What technical interoperability is in place to support your strategy (integration with EMR, use of HL7, open APIs, 3rd party vendor tools, etc.)? What is your long-term patient engagement objectives? How are you sharing a patient’s personal health information (PHI) with them? To what capacity?

    The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) is hosting a webinar for CHIME to discuss the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) draft 2.

    The framework outlines a common set of principles and terms and conditions to support to enable nationwide exchange of electronic health information (EHI) across disparate health information networks (HINs). The TEFCA is designed to scale EHI exchange nationwide and help ensure stakeholders have secure access to their electronic health information when and where it is needed. 

    Don’t know what TEFCA is?  You need to. Congress required ONC to develop a voluntary framework for data exchange – a network of networks.  While voluntary now, participation could be mandated in the future.

    Here are ONC fact sheets for providers, patients and developers among other stakeholders.

    Today's modern healthcare IT networks are now inextricably linked to clinician productivity and the speedy delivery of patient care. 

    As wireless, mobility and a flood of unconventional IoT devices hit these networks, IT staff is under pressure to get a tighter grip on device, application and network service performance to ensure the best possible user experience. Achieving this requires the manual analysis or correlation of massive volumes of data traversing the network from client to cloud.

    Today's infrastructure management solutions were simply never developed or designed for this purpose across heterogeneous networks. However recent advances in AI, big data network analytics and cloud-based computing are changing everything for healthcare IT leaders.

    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

    Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening complication that arises when the body’s response to infection injures its own tissues and organs. Time matters when dealing with this medical emergency. Early recognition and treatment have been shown to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with this dangerous condition. One of the most effective methods to assist physicians in identifying sepsis is through a data-driven approach. By building upon existing EHR functionality with new technology, including real-time communication of at-risk patients, and increasing organizational collaboration, Licking Memorial has improved outcomes and mortality rates at the hospital, stemming the tide and risk of sepsis across their organization.

    AEHIT partners with AEHIA Live Third Thursday events to present KLAS' 'Arch Collaborative'. 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.

    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.
