Given that the future of medicine is precision medicine, and precision medicine is only possible when the right technologies are in place, it’s no surprise that CIOs and other IT leaders must be key drivers of this transformation in care. But what does the optimal technology mix look like? What are the key components, and what’s the right way to bring them together? How can IT leaders best work with clinicians in this journey, and who are the other key stakeholders that must be engaged? In this important webinar, we’ll hear from leaders who are focused on making sure their organization is well positioned for the brave new world of precision medicine.
CISOs and CIOs who keep a close eye on the threat intelligence landscape have a leg up on peers who lack focus on this important source of information. Case in point: recently, virtualized environments have become a favorite attack vector following the release of nefarious tools on the dark web. But there are ways to protect those environments, and it all starts with being aware of the new danger. In this important webinar, we’ll talk with leaders about how to incorporate threat intelligence into a comprehensive cyber-defense, and how to keep newly-targeted virtualized environments secure.
In order to comply with both regulations and patient demand, health systems must provide patients with electronic access to their designated record set. But considering that patient information often resides not only in the EHR but other applications and archives, providing access to all that information in one patient portal, or even through your current Release of Information process, is tricky. That’s because while patients may have a unique identifier in the main EHR, it doesn’t carry over to those other data sources. Enter the need for an organization-wide unique identifier that can facilitate bringing it all together. In this timely webinar, we’ll speak to leaders about how they are working to satisfy growing patient demand for access to their data and comply with the 21st Century Cures Act.
Economic headwinds have left health systems’ margins thinner than ever, with the result that IT budgets and past investments are being put under the microscope. Now, CIOs and other IT leaders must show that currently allocated money is being well spent and planned outlays aren’t the equivalent of throwing good money after bad. But unfortunately the news for leaders gets worse, as other parts of healthcare (vendors, payers, consultants) are poaching away much-needed IT talent with promises of more money, better hours and less overall stress. In this timely webinar, we’ll hear from leaders who are focused on bringing their shops through the storm by being more efficient, focusing on ROI and retaining employees with all the tools at their disposal.
