Pre-conference symposia: HIMSS/SHIEC Interoperability & HIE Symposium

Facilitating Person-Centered Interoperable HIE to Manage Complex Populations

Date: Monday, March 5, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Location: Venetian-Palazzo-Sands Expo Center
Description: There have been major advancements in interoperability, standards development, and health information exchange, but significant barriers remain to fully access, capture and manage the health of complex populations. Grounded in a real-world scenario involving a complex patient, explore the future of interoperability and its impact on digital health and realizing a true person-centered health system. Challenge today’s proven solutions and frameworks, and explore cutting-edge ideas that could disrupt the future of healthcare. Current strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats will be examined, along with a closer look at the interaction of policies, payment reform, emerging standards, and use cases that are furthering our progress toward true healthcare transformation.

Additional registration required: $350 
Pre-conference symposia: Compliance Symposium
Mastering Compliance: What You Must Know

Date: Monday, March 5, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Location: Venetian-Palazzo-Sands Expo Center
Description: A well-designed compliance approach is critical to success in healthcare delivery and health IT. This approach is important across the continuum of healthcare, including home care, provider offices, acute care settings, retail pharmacies and medical devices. Stakeholders who must be held accountable include health system leaders, healthcare providers, vendors and manufacturers, consultants, and quality and compliance personnel. Uncover the challenges of identifying the major areas of compliance risk, how to address them leveraging your IT resources, and how to effectively support proper compliance programs across the entire health delivery system.

Additional registration required: $350



Time: Thursday, March 8, 2018, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Sands Expo and Convention Center, Room Delfino 4004
Description: As healthcare has become more dependent on applications and software, and medical devices are getting networked and integrated, attacks previously targeted for IT systems are now a possibility for medical devices. Such attacks may place mission-critical (and sometimes life critical) systems in jeopardy. The focus of this session will be to discuss a few areas of opportunity for IT and Clinical Engineering to partner on management privacy and security areas including policies and management techniques for server management, patching, and MDS2 (manufacturer disclosure statement for medical device security) documents.
