HIMSS17 Annual Conference & Exhibition 

ACCE is an official Endorser of HIMSS17

Pre-conference symposia: Medical Device Security Symposium: Medical Device Security Information – Clarity for Action

Date: Sunday, February 19, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Location: Orange County Convention Center
Description: Medical device security is now recognized as a major public health problem. Examine the critical functions of the recently launched medical device Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) initiative co-led by NHISAC and MDISS. Uncover the potential transformative impact of the open and collaborative ISAO on patient safety and privacy, health system and manufacturer cybersecurity operations, and opportunities for stakeholder participation. Key device cybersecurity updates will be provided.
Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss key aspects of Executive Order 13691, its impact on cyber information sharing, and the key role for the NHISAO
  • Illustrate the impact of cybersecurity information sharing on development of cybersecurity best practices and workforce development
  • Identify the value proposition for the medical device ISAO initiative
  • Describe the evolution and impact of regulatory policy and practice for medical device cybersecurity
  • Explain the underlying methods for medical device risk assessment, vulnerability information assessment and sharing, and cyber surveillance and intelligence sharing

Interoperability and HIE Symposium: Interoperability and Health Information Exchange – Making it Work

Date: Sunday, February 19, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Location: Orange County Convention Center 
Description: Continued adoption of value-based payment models, implementation of a growing number of health IT applications across care settings, evolution of available technical standards, and attention from federal policymakers all underscore and align the need for semantic interoperability and exchange of data, information and knowledge across the health system. Explore the opportunities and challenges affecting diverse stakeholders stemming from a confluence of new policies, evolving standards and certification programs, applications, and coordination required to realize a learning health system that is patient-centered and improves population health.
Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate the approaches that are required to innovatively solve interoperability challenges to enable meaningful health information exchange, improved clinical information utilization, and empowerment of clinicians, patients and other stakeholders
  • Explain how existing and upcoming standards, certifications and their implementation are addressing barriers to data exchange
  • Describe practical approaches, including consumer-oriented solutions, that support sustainable interoperable health information exchange
  • Assess how HHS policies supporting value-based purchasing rely upon interoperability and health information exchange
  • Evaluate how interoperability and health information exchange are foundational building blocks to enable the learning health system vision and drive a person-centered future of health
