Changing Health Through the Power of Cognitive: Watson for Oncology

Wednesday, May 3, 12-1:30 pm

Presenters: Andrew Norden, MD, MPH, MBA, IBM Watson Health Deputy Chief Health Officer and Tufia Haddad, MD, Assistant Professor of Oncology, Mayo Clinic

Dr. Andrew Norden will discuss early real life utilization of Watson oncology solutions in a clinical decision support role, both within and outside of the US health system. He will address the role of Watson as a complement to a tumor board and as a support tool for patient:physician discussions. He will review the growing base of evidence that supports the use of Watson oncology solutions in these settings.

Dr. Tufia Haddad, a breast cancer focused medical oncologist at Mayo Clinic will join Dr. Norden for this presentation and will talk about Mayo Clinic’s experiences with Watson Health’s Clinical Trials Matching solution.

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.
