    Title: From East to West: A Look at how jurisdictions leverage EHRs to enhance care coordination

    This showcase will focus on how to get more value from EHRs from a clinical, technical, business and patient perspective. The discussion will use case study presentations from two jurisdictions in which Orion Health is active to display how EHRs are used by health professionals in different scenarios. The first, a case from Alberta, deals with e-Consult and e-Referral. It will also cover off how Alberta is connecting their EMRs to their EHR known as Netcare. The second case from the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information will present an example of how their EHR called HEALTHe NL is being leveraged for an eOrdering project with the Vascular Lab in St. John's. This case will also present how the EHR is a valuable tool in safer medication management as under the new Prescription Monitoring Act legislation, prescribers will be required to review a patient's medication profile using HEALTHe NL before writing a prescription for an opioid.

    What these cases help to illuminate is the importance of sharing of information across jurisdictions to develop a clearer, more responsive patient profile, which helps with care plans. Orion Health has been working to identify gaps in the existing system. Identifying these enabling technologies, such as the ones used in Alberta, Newfoundland, and Labrador, is of benefit to the system. Being the first of its kind in Canada the Alberta EMR to EHR integration is crucial.

    Enabling Agile Delivery in Digital Health: Experiences and Perspectives

    Healthcare organizations are under constant pressure to innovate in the delivery of services and to implement or improve the IT solutions underpinning their operations. Agile methodologies and frameworks – such as agile architecture, agile environment deployment and agile governance – are being used to support faster delivery of better solutions at comparable or reduced costs across a wide range of industries. However, healthcare organizations across Canada struggle to adopt agile practices – from initial investment decisions through design and development to user onboarding. The symposium will feature a panel of speakers who will share their experiences in leveraging agile approaches from three unique but complementary perspectives.

    Healthcare Transformation in the AI Era

    Some say that AI has the potential to radically change healthcare. And they’re right. Except for the fact that AI technology — cognitive systems that use data to understand, reason, learn and predict — has already begun to drive profound changes throughout the healthcare industry both on the administrative side as well as in medical research and in terms of patient care.
    Through its capacity to collect, combine and analyze vast amounts of data, including data found in medical journals, digital images, clinical notes, or generated from sensored medical devices, AI is driving transformation in a growing number of healthcare areas. Join us for this informative session to hear about some of the current uses of AI in healthcare as well as the opportunities it presents to reduce healthcare costs, better manage and improve patient outcomes, as well as support vital medical research and drug discoveries.

    An Innovative Model for Postoperative Remote Automated Monitoring and Virtual Care

    Although surgery has the potential to improve quality and duration of life, it can also precipitate major complications. Current systems for monitoring patients after surgery, both on surgical wards and after transition to home, are not adequate. In operating rooms and intensive/post anesthetic care units, there is continuous hemodynamic surveillance. Yet, when patients are transferred to surgical wards, most will have their vital signs evaluated only every 4 to 12 hours. This scenario leads to thousands of cases of undetected hemodynamic compromise, associated with poor clinical outcomes. This talk will focus on implementation and user testing of innovative Philips technology to improve postoperative monitoring and hospital to home recovery support for patients. Methods used in an international clinical trial, underway, to examine health system outcomes will also be shared.

    Title: Enabling the Data Driven Healthcare Enterprise with Self-Service Visual Analytics

    Abstract: Healthcare is in the throes of transformation today like never before. Healthcare reform is driving new business models, business processes and systems to enable this transformation. However, most healthcare providers find themselves challenged to empower their doctors, clinicians, nurses, administrators and knowledge workers on the frontline with the ability to see and understand their data and answer their questions, without significant IT intervention. This impedes them from access to timely and accurate actionable insights needed to get a 360 degree view of their patients, identify and manage risk, and comply with newer regulations efficiently and effectively.
    In this presentation, learn how industry leaders in Healthcare like the Alberta Health System (AHS), St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Providence Health, Barnes Jewish Health System, Mount Sinai Medical Center, University of Michigan Health System, Piedmont Healthcare and Seattle Children¹s Hospital are responding to these industry trends. Adopting self-service data discovery and analytics is helping these leaders move away from the 'report factory' paradigm. This is enabling them to empower their knowledge workers including executives, line of business (LOB) leaders, physicians, clinicians, nurses, and administrators with the actionable insights needed to deliver superior patient outcomes at a lower cost and risk of non-compliance, while measurably impacting their efficiency, productivity and morale.

    Can We Beat the Opioid Epidemic With AI?

    The opioid crisis in Canada is putting increasing pressure on the country’s health care systems. In fact, new data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) shows that the number of emergency department visits and hospitalizations in Canada continues to rise at an alarming rate contributing to an average of 16 hospitalizations a day in Canada in 2016–2017 — a 19% increase over the year before– with Western Canada, and B.C., especially hard hit.

    While the public has long assumed that opioid addiction is concentrated in areas of high poverty and among teenagers and young adults, the troubling reality is that non-medical prescription drug usage and overdose rates in developed countries are proving to be the highest among the middle class. And while the rate of hospitalizations is certainly growing the fastest among those aged 15 to 24, the highest hospitalization rates over the past 10 years in Canada has in fact been among adults age 45 to 64 and seniors age 65 and older.

    Given the devastating impact that this crisis is having across all socio-economic strata, it’s clear that this epidemic is both tragic and complex and one which will demand focused effort, resources and collaboration among government, healthcare practitioners, and the communities they serve.

    It’s also becoming clear that technology has an increasingly important role to play. Join this session to hear about the role that technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning have begun to play in combating today’s opioid crisis.

    Aligning your EHR Implementation with HIMSS Stage 7

    The process of earning HIMSS Stage 7 recognition can be overwhelming for many hospitals. However, there are also considerable benefits to developing an EHR implementation that aligns with Stage 7 strategies – including improved physician productivity, patient engagement, and outcomes. During this session, we will discuss the ways in which HIMSS Stage 7 standards can serve as a roadmap to achieving specific quality goals — such as decreased infection rates and more efficient processes for your care teams. We’ll share the key measures and metrics that are essential to achieving Stage 7, as well as the EHR functionalities that can help your hospital to reach its fullest potential as a paperless provider. You’ll also learn how Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences and other large, multi-site healthcare organizations have successfully used these guidelines to improve both the provider and patient experience.

    Learning Objectives:

    How to appropriately frame EHR project goals around HIMSS Stage 7 objectives.

    How to establish realistic project plans and timelines.

    How to confront common challenges and discover new opportunities.

    HS01 - Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare: Application, Research, and Leadership in Canada (Digital Health Canada Session)

    Location: Granville I Room, Conference Level, JW Marriott Parq Vancouver
    HS01.01 - Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare: Application, Research, and Leadership in Canada

    Today, artificial intelligence (AI) is often central to any discussion about key enablers driving the future of health services and care delivery. AI has demonstrated potential to deliver value through improved patient outcomes and quality of care. However, there is a pressing need to strike a balance between hope and hype, and research and implementation. In this panel session, we set out to separate hype from reality through a pragmatic look at computer intelligence in healthcare. Together with attendees in an interactive session, our panel will bring their expertise and points-of-view to the table to review current state Canadian examples, use cases, challenges and future opportunities, and insights from Digital Health Canada’s CHIEF Executive Forum - as well as tackling key questions such as:

    • How should we define AI and computer intelligence as it is applied in health services and care delviery?
    • Where are these technologies being applied today in Canada?
    • Where is the potential for the future? Where are centres of excellence evolving?
    • What knowledge and skills are required from today’s digital health professionals for future success?

    Join us for a lively and interactive discussion. Bring your ideas and questions. Engage and share as we continue to develop a Canadian perspective on artificial intelligence in healthcare.

    Panelists:

    • Angela Copeland, Director, Data and Analytics Strategic Initiatives and Governance, Cancer Care Ontario
    • Dr. Bethany Edmunds, Ph.D., Associate Dean, BCIT Computing, British Columbia Institute of Technology
    • Dr. Alexandra T. Greenhill, MD, CEO / Chief Medical Officer, Careteam

    PL04 - Workplace Wellness For A Better Bottom Line

    In the digital health industry we are always trying to do what is best for others – specifically for the clinicians and the patients we serve. However, we often forget to manage our own wellness and self-care. The process of executing towards one of our goals that further advances our health care system can feel all-consuming. We often work long hours to achieve results, and when burnout sets in and productivity declines, passion is snuffed out by resentment, dread, and stagnation. In this presentation, Nova shares the 5 main workplace complaints along with the solutions for helping manage our own wellness. The audience will learn to proactively identify red flags at work and use various techniques to create boundaries & prioritize self-care. This session will be helpful for leaders, employees, and individuals. Nova’s actionable takeaways will help audience members get more out of their personal and professional relationships, while organizations will learn new ways to encourage wellness at work.
