Keynote Address: Beyond the EHR: Mobility, Patient Engagement, and Analytics

The Electronic Health Record (EHR) is a critical component of providing effective and efficient patient-centered care, yet it is not the total solution for driving the changes needed for health care transformation. There are other enabling technologies that are beginning to show promise, with mounting evidence of the importance of integrating solutions to understand how to deliver value in healthcare, be aware of what it costs to do so, and recognize how to continuously improve. This session will share ideas on how to use the power of data and technology to make a difference in the health and healthcare of individuals.

Panel A: Big Data Analytics (BDA) and Innovations at the Edge

“Like all new technologies, BDA is being introduced to the health sector with much promise. However, its capabilities, opportunities and benefits still need to be proven through clinical and administrative applications. In light of these challenges, for those who decide to invest in BDA, Infoway strongly advises stakeholders to invest through scope-limited pilot projects. Iterative and step-wise project investments will limit capital requirements and permit stakeholders to study the feasibility and utility of the new capabilities before committing additional resources. Pilot projects should focus on providing insights into specific and pressing clinical or business problems which are supported by clear use cases, while allowing for some experimentation. Wherever possible, existing infrastructure assets, information sets and partnerships should be leveraged." (Taken from 'Big Data Analytics in Health' by Canada Health Infoway.)

The panelists in this session will provide insight into current initiatives in BDA, two years following publication of this white paper.

Keynote Address: Innovation Opportunities for Canadian Health Systems

The state our health system is such that much needs to be done for improvements. In measures of access, quality and costs the Canadian Health system has steadily declined when measured against other Health systems in the Western world. There has been much discussion about these challenges. While changes to incentive structures and policy are being explored and in different stages of implementation across the country, many opportunities to enact changes are also within the realm of the leadership of health providers. However, a large constraining backdrop towards innovation is the limited availability of capital for investment. Federal and Canadian provinces have extended health investments to such a degree that additional investments are extremely constrained.

This session will identify macro-economic challenges in the health system and the Innovation opportunities to improve access, quality and cost, with a focus on better extracting value from how working capital is deployed.

Panel C: Consumer/Patient Centered Virtual Healthcare: How is it Guiding the Path in Healthcare

Across the world, citizen expectations about how they participate in the delivery of their healthcare services have shifted. At the same time, technology has evolved from systems designed for providers to those designed for patients. Patients from all walks of life are more informed, have an increased ability to understand medical information, and are ready and willing to engage with their providers through the use of technology. While legislation lags behind technology capability and citizen expectations in some jurisdictions, many countries are making proactive changes. The future of patient centred healthcare is here. Are we ready?

Keynote Address: A New Model for Health Collaboration: Unlocking Interoperability to Drive High Quality Patient Care and Coordination.

A continual challenge for healthcare providers is overcoming the fragmentation of data between EHRs and the lack of interoperability to support engagement and management across the patient care team. Join us to discover how leading healthcare organizations around the globe use successful interoperability to engage patients, enhance care management, and transform the way they deliver care. Hear success stories about how these organizations are forging new and different levels of care management to improve the patient experience of care and outcomes.

Keynote Address: Focus Reset: Adopting a “first mile” Mindset to Empowering Healthcare Consumers

Over the past twenty-five years, Canada’s healthcare players have all invested in important efforts to improve the efficiency of our health system. Quality initiatives, downsizing, and cost cutting, as well as improvements to provider productivity and technology solutions that enable information sharing across the care continuum have made a mark in the delivery of healthcare. But it’s not enough. Timely access to affordable healthcare continues to plague the nation. It’s time to change the channel and look at the problem with a disruptive view. Up until now, the focus has been on equipping healthcare providers. What about patients, the healthcare consumer? While the healthcare consumer is often thought of as the “last mile” for health system connectivity, today’s brave new mobile, cloud-fuelled and social digital landscape suggests that we are really at the very beginning of true healthcare transformation. Adopting a “first mile” consumer orientation puts a priority on extending quality healthcare beyond hospital walls and into the community. Ian will explore the coalescing disruptive technologies, and the social forces, that both enable and hinder a consumer first-mile approach to delivering health care in a less costly, and more convenient location – the patient’s home.

Keynote Address: Evidence that Drives Innovation and Change: “What is Cool, What is Problematic, and What is Needed

The presentation will explore the use of evidence to inform health system innovation in Canada. It will profile current challenges and opportunities that accelerate innovation, and discuss how health leaders can better leverage evidence to drive innovation adoption, scalability and transformation of health systems. Global comparisons of health system trends will be profiled in the presentation.

11:10-12:20 Presentation Files Kendall Ho Alan Low Bill Reid

Panel E: How Do We Tell the Difference between What’s Cool, What Works and What the Unintended Consequences Are?

Consumers may be attracted to what’s cool, but innovations that are cool may not be effective and worse could have negative unintended consequences. Today’s rapid cycle of innovation, including adaptation and improvement based on user feedback, is a very different paradigm as compared to gold-standard approaches to assessing effectiveness based on clinical trials which require a much longer timeline and little adaptation. How can the research and development enterprises adapt so as to provide an evidence base to inform decision-makers, including patients, practitioners and health system leaders?
