Title: How Can We Make Clinicians Delighted with CDS?

Presenters: Donald Levick, MD, MBA, CPE, FHIMSS & Anna Dover, PharmD, BCPS

Description: Although the use of clinical decision support (CDS) tools have helped to reduce medication errors and improve patient outcomes, they have fallen short of their full potential. Consequently, clinician acceptance and satisfaction with CDS remains substandard. The appropriate use of these tools – including the reduction of "alert fatigue" – remains a focus for many healthcare organizations.

Dr. Donald Levick will lead our roundtable where he will share his focus as a health system CMIO on not only patient safety and quality improvement but on clinician satisfaction with the EHR. Dr. Levick – who is the co-author of the HIMSS 2012 Book of the Year: "Improving Outcomes with Clinical Decision Support" – will share how his ongoing interest in effective CDS fueled successful implementations of pharmacogenomics and other targeted medication warning CDS.

Please join us to learn more from Dr. Levick and to share your insights and experiences in to helping to raise satisfaction level among clinicians with CDS.

In this roundtable, we will:

  • Discuss current and historical challenges in medication decision support and ask attendees to share insights on how to make it more meaningful and patient specific.
  • Share best practices attendee organizations leverage for high-performing clinical decision support.
  • Discuss the importance of analytics to achieve optimal clinical decision support, including current challenges with available data.
  • Learn from an experienced CMIO about a “patient-first” approach to medication management that leverages additional inputs including lab results, genomic markers, and clinical scoring/surveillance systems.

Target Audience: CMO, CMIO, CIO, Clinical Informaticists, Pharmacists, Physicians

Title: Integrating Genomic Data into the EHR and Clinical Workflow: Overcoming Challenges

Presenters:
Frank Naeymi-Rad, PHD, MBA, Chairman, Leap of Faith Technologies
Bob Dolin, MD, Senior Informaticist, Elimu Informatics
Barbara Rapchak, BS, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer, Leap of Faith Technologies

Description:By 2025, between 100 million and 2 billion human genomes will have been sequenced. This remarkable progress in genomics discovery has given us insights into complex human traits and disease and opens the door to a new era in medical treatments. How do we use this data to deliver better healthcare? Personal genomics opens the door to a new era in healthcare. But clinicians need to be able to access this wealth of data and understand how to interpret and act upon it. During this roundtable discussion, we will explore how a genetic platform that links genomic data with clinical data in the electronic health record (EHR) can create a more comprehensive, interactive map of human health that can be intersected with medical knowledge to guide providers through the deluge of expanding treatment options in order to deliver more precise treatment. We will discuss barriers and facilitators to EHR integration, as well as the best ways to store, share, and analyze genomic data. The goal is to discover and understand the best ways to create an environment for genomics innovators and clinicians that removes barriers to precision medicine.

Target Audience: Innovators in genomics, CMIOs, Subject Matter Experts, Clinical Informaticists, Data Analysts, Researchers, EHR Vendors

To request an invitation for one or more roundtables, complete the form below. There is no additional fee to attend a roundtable, however you must complete the form to be considered. By completing the form, you understand that the sponsoring organization of your requested roundtable(s) will receive your personal information and may contact you. Only registered Virtual Annual Symposium attendees may participate in these focus groups.

Certain provisions (commonly referred to as The Sunshine Act) under the Affordable Care Act require that drug and device manufactures report to CMS on, among other things, payments and transfers of “value” (including meals) to physicians. The rule defines “physician” as a doctor of medicine or osteopathy, a dentist, a podiatrist, an optometrist, or a chiropractor who is legally authorized to practice by the state in which he or she works. Advance practice nurses, registered nurses, physician assistants, residents, and pharmacists are not covered recipients, but payments made to non-physician prescribers to be passed through to a doctor are considered indirect payments to the physician and, therefore, would have to be reported under the name of the doctor. Check this box if you are a health care provider (HCP) as defined by the Sunshine Act. Certain roundtable sponsors may need to report the value of the meal provided as part of their annual reporting to CMS. If this is the case, you will be asked to provide additional information – such as your medical license and NPI number – to the roundtable sponsor at the time of the event.
