    2. Use of consumer digital solutions across the country has doubled in the past two years; and

    3. Studies confirm what health leaders have long suspected: engaged patients have better health outcomes, this session will explore digital health technologies and their potential to transform the patient experience and improve patient outcomes.

    Leveraging Cognitive Computing in Health and Healthcare

    New technologies are helping our healthcare providers improve both patient care, population health and reduce delivery costs. This is an industry inundated with data, most of it either unstructured or invisible - and the challenge lies in how to analyze it, gain insights from it, and apply those insights to drive healthcare transformation. Healthcare is further challenged by the growing needs and quality of life expectations of the aging population. The future will require new thinking about partnerships and ecosystems, community approaches and business models, and new technology including mobile and cloud that provide new opportunities for engagement. This session will share ideas on how to use the power of cognitive computing and analytics to make a difference in the health and healthcare of individuals.

    Virtual Health – How to Empower Your Care Teams
    Empower your care teams with tools that boost their personal productivity and help them work together more efficiently.
    Virtual Health leverages Office 365 and Skype for Business to enable clinical care through telemedicine, telehealth and collaboration at-a-distance. Connecting clinicians, patients and care teams to provide health services, and coordinate care. We will share examples of how to leverage this integrated platform to effectively communicate with patients, manage and connect caregivers, and improve quality and reduce costs. Care teams can use voice and videoconferencing to share documents, confer with each other, to meet with and diagnose patients.

    What If Patients Really Were First?

    Transitions along the continuum of care (as a patient moves between caregivers and between different health care settings) are complex. In an increasingly technology-enabled health care system where technology is supposed to improve the patient experience, these transitions in care remain challenging. This panel discussion will address the complexity of transitions between caregivers and multiple settings. There will be a focus on roles and responsibilities in the health care system, how to improve quality in communications, and the place of technology in the patient’s journey so that transitions become seamless. The ability of new technology systems to transfer personal health information in order to enhance patient care during transitions will also be highlighted.

    How Cognitive, Analytics Hold Keys to Your Heart

    Across Canada, millions of people live with heart rhythm disturbances, commonly known as arrhythmias. The costs associated with managing arrhythmias are staggering, with the economic burden estimated at well over $10 billion per year in Canada. But treating and investigating arrhythmias generates a remarkable amount of data. In 2016, IBM and CANet launched Heart-SIGN, a cloud-based analytics platform to manage, monitor, store, and correlate data generated from all CANet projects. It will offer unprecedented analytical capability that will help researchers uncover answers in minutes that previously might have taken years to discover. Join our breakfast session to learn more this groundbreaking development in the world of cardiac research.

    Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building, 202CD
    Bringing Oncology Care into the Patient’s Electronic Health Recor

    Due to the complexity of oncology care many organizations that move forward with CPOE leave their oncology orders on paper or within a separate oncology specific system. London Health Sciences Centre will demonstrate how Cerner PowerChart Oncology has allowed oncology care to be integrated within the patient’s current electronic health record. The focus of the discussion will include improvements in patient safety, workflow and communication. Patient safety improvements include the removal of all transcription, introduction of closed loop medication administration and incorporation of lab, diagnostic imaging and patient care orders within the chemotherapy ordering process. Workflow improvements, including nursing assessment, review of labs and medication preparation, have allowed for better patient flow through the chemotherapy infusion unit. Communication improvements are realized not only within the oncology program between the oncologist, pharmacist and nurse but also across the organization as patients access other health care professionals including the emergency department.

    Disrupting Healthcare’s Legacy Approach to Staffing: Utilizing Healthcare Technology to Support Data-Driven Staffing and Scheduling Decisions

    Healthcare organizations are finding ways to harness analytics to gain a deeper understanding of patient needs and how to match the right staff with the right patients at the right time. This session will describe the transformation of hospital staffing and scheduling from an opinion-based process to a data-driven practice. You will learn about the latest systems and strategies that build staffing and scheduling around patient needs, nurse/staff competencies and unit flow instead of census.
    Data-driven staffing has the potential to reduce labor costs, improve employee engagement, provide equitable staffing, and improve an organization’s ability to deliver high quality patient care.

    The Rise of FHIR: Strategies for Dealing with Disruption

    HL7’s latest standard is gaining rapid adoption and creating difficult decisions for vendors and governments alike. The rise of FHIR is causing disruption in everything from longer term investment decisions and solution architectures to organizational processes and staff skills sets. With the help of an engaging panel of experts, this session will explain why FHIR is gaining so much attention, describe the impacts to organizations grappling with FHIR adoption, and share lessons learned from early adopters. Participants will walk away with an understanding of the different resources and tools available to help them to make informed decisions about this disruptive standard.

    Innovation in Community Care
    • Presentation: HS01.01 - Digital Health in Home, Community, and Long-Term Care
    • Description: As clinicians and managers consider healthcare delivery options that extend beyond the four walls of the hospital, clinic, or other healthcare setting, new models are emerging for primary, home, community, and long-term care. Canadian healthcare providers face a unique set of challenges that include a rise in chronic disease and an aging, widely dispersed population. How do we merge care pathways across traditional sectors and settings while incorporating new care models and technologies? This one-hour session features a 30-minute presentation and 30 minutes of moderated open discussion with a focus on innovative solutions and emerging technologies as tools in the quest to provide a continuum of quality care, from in-person to virtual.

    Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, North Building, 202CD
    • Presentation: HS02.01 - Modernizing CIHI’s Data Flow: Starting in the Community
    • Description:
      This interactive panel session will highlight the work CIHI is doing to transform the way it collects data. It will provide specific examples of what is being done to change the way data flows to CIHI in our community sectors including home care, long-term care and child and youth mental health agencies.

      Overall, this transformation will:
      • Modernize data flow using interoperable standards such as FHIR;
      • Reduce data submission burden for CIHI’s data submitters and clients;
      • Increase the standardization of data across the health system;
      • Ensure business processes and technologies are sustainable and efficient; and,
      • Improve the ability to collect once and use many!

      Come, listen and converse with the different teams working to achieve this change.
