Redefining Our Picture of Health: Towards a Person-Centered Integrated Care, Research, Wellness, and Community Ecosystem

This webinar will present the white paper derived from the AMIA 2017 Policy Invitational. The paper details a new set of policy principles and framework meant to address cross-cutting issues identified by API17 participants and to encourage a more unified care, research, wellness, and community ecosystem. Entitled, “Redefining Our Picture of Health: Towards a Person-Centered Integrated Care, Research, Wellness, and Community Ecosystem” it also includes a set of draft recommendations that highlight ways in which the federal government can facilitate this ecosystem.

Integrated Health Model Initiative: What is it? What’s in it for me?

In mid-October 2017, AMIA supported the launch of an American Medical Association-led Integrated Health Model Initiative, or IHMI. This multi-stakeholder effort features (1) a digital platform for collaborative communities around costly and burdensome areas of care; (2) a general purpose, machine-readable information model, known as the Integrated Health Model; and (3) a clinical validation process to review submissions and incorporate feedback from the use of IHM.

The Recommendations of FDASIA Workgroup

The Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) of 2012 calls for the HHS Secretary to "post a report -- within 18 months (or by January 2014) - that contains a proposed strategy and recommendations on a risk-based regulatory framework pertaining to health IT, including mobile applications, that promotes innovation, protects patient safety, and avoids regulatory duplication."

Applying the Federal Regulations for Protecting Research Subjects

The "Common Rule" is a set of federal regulations that has the purpose of protecting research subjects.  This webinar is intended to give an overview of Common Rule, describe when research studies are subject to it, and describe in particular how it can impact some types of studies that AMIA members might conduct.

You should register for this webinar if you are interested in learning about the federal regulations for protecting research subjects and how the regulations might apply to your work.

Learning Objectives

During this webinar you will learn about:

Accelerating Patient Engagement through the Use of Pragmatic Tools

By engaging consumers in their healthcare, they are more likely to take better care of themselves, which lowers costs, improves health outcomes and cultivates consumer loyalty. Consumer engagement is critical to healthcare reform and strengthens providers’ ability to meet Meaningful Use incentive requirements as well as supporting other patient-centered care programs.

Unintended Consequences of Health Information Exchange, Root Causes and Mitigation

This session will provide an introduction to the recent Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology Workgroup Report on the Unintended Consequences of Health Information Exchange (HIE UCs). The Webinar will begin with a brief overview of health information exchange, its goals and the ways it can be achieved. The Webinar then will present a 7-part framework for understanding the potential unintended consequences that may result from the implementation of health information exchange.

ONC's Interoperability Strategy

This session will provide participants with an overview of ONC’s efforts related to standards development and harmonization. Dr. Fridsma will provide an update on the Standards & Interoperability (S&I) Framework, ONC’s interoperability portfolio, and the tools being developed to support implementation.

Standards and Technology for Longitudinal Coordination of Care

This session will provide an overview of standards development efforts currently underway to create the “next generation CCD” to support care transitions and the care plan. These new standards are targeted to support the needs of Meaningful Use Stage 3 around patient centered care coordination, as well as the long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) community. Technology to support the use of these new standards, particularly for LTPAC providers, will also be presented.
