Date: Monday, June 2, 2014
Time: 10:30 am
Room: VCC East Ballroom A

Achieving transformation in healthcare requires a combination of new reimbursement models, delivery of evidence to point of care, and advanced analytics to predict risk and manage new performance levels. At the heart of these factors is clinical adoption and leadership, necessary to drive new accountable care delivery models based on patient-centric care. Dr Michael Weiner will discuss his experience as the CMIO for the U.S. Department of Defence Interagency Program Office, where he was responsible for creating a unified Interagency Electronic Health Record for over 125,000 providers and 18 million patients worldwide. Dr Weiner will provide insights into analytics and new accountability models to drive transformation, and the importance of both clinician adoption and patient empowerment in this journey.

IBM Smarter Care recognizes the clear link between health and wellness of individuals and the economic and social vitality of the communities in which they live. Smarter Care leverages new and existing data sources and analytics innovations to uncover valuable insights into lifestyle choices, social determinants, and clinical factors to deliver a holistic view of the individual and entire populations. The result is more coordinated and efficient care delivery and advanced care management, and the ability to drive a deeper level of engagement for more consistent and optimized outcomes and lower costs.

Join IBM in Booth #315 to learn more about IBM's Smarter Care solutions including a focus on managing high risk populations, Big Data for healthcare, remote wireless tracking and Watson for Healthcare.


Advanced Care Management

Home Back
Approaching patient care holistically improves health outcomes, decreases costs and improves care delivery. IBM's Smarter Care solutions can help identify those individuals with future risk within the healthier population by assessing patients across their behavioral, social and clinical determinants of health. It builds individualized care plans informed by population analytics, and unites communities of stakeholders around a common outcomes based approach. Your organization can execute proven care plans for the most complex of patient illnesses, while keeping the less vulnerable population on an effective path to wellness.

Watson for Healthcare

Home Back
Data is doubling every five years, yet the majority of doctors report spending five or fewer hours per week reading medical journals. Cognitive Systems can help fill a critical void in healthcare by acting as the ultimate medical assistant; ingesting and understanding massive volumes of medical literature and putting it to work for better patient outcomes. IBM is working to apply Watson to healthcare, as medical professionals rethink how healthcare is taught, researched, practiced and paid. Watch compelling demos of IBM Watson accelerating medical and life sciences research, helping oncologists make more evidence-based cancer treatment decisions and hospital administrators improve their matching process between patients and clinical trials.

Things To Know Before You Go

Analytics: Healthcare Outcomes

Home Back
Healthcare is in a state of transition due to enormous financial pressures driven by unsustainable rising costs. With many of our provinces spending more than 40 per cent of their budgets on healthcare, can we actually improve patient care while driving down healthcare costs? Many within the industry agree that advanced healthcare analytics may hold the key.

Log in to hear Dan Gordon, Executive Consultant, IBM Global Healthcare Centre of Competence and Aditya Pai, Senior Managing Consultant,IBM Global Business Services review a framework for healthcare analytics driven management transformation that can help organizations make far better use of their data to reduce cost, reinvent care, and improve patient outcomes. We will discuss very specific management approaches to realize the benefits of analytics.


Achieving Outcomes That Matter

Home Back
The global healthcare industry is at a pivotal point to transform, reinvent and realign to a more vital and evolving new model. There is broad recognition that cost increases are unsustainable, yet results remain inadequate. Buyers of care, including governments, employers and individual consumers, are demanding better performance in both quality and outcomes.

Attend this on demand webcast to learn more about the strategic activities that are enabling organizations to deliver greater value and achieve outcomes that matter.


Integrating Acute & Primary Care

Home Back
Managing high cost patients – "our top 1%" – out of acute care and closer to home is now a high priority as jurisdictions look to integrate acute and primary care under new delivery models. The management of this cohort of patients is considered an untapped opportunity to enhance quality, reduce costs, reduce readmission, and improve the delivery of safe and effective care for patients. Whether targeted at only the top 1% of patients, or ideally at all "high risk" patients, improved coordination among acute and primary care is viewed as a high priority.

Attend this on-demand webcast to review Patient Care and Insights and our 'closer to home' capabilities, targeted to reduce costs and improve quality of care delivery for our high risk populations.
