Health is important, and improvements in health improve lives. However, we still don’t fundamentally understand what it means to be healthy, and the same patient may receive different treatments across different hospitals or clinicians as new evidence is discovered, or individual illness is interpreted.

Dr. Marzyeh Ghassemi explores questions about eradicating bias in healthcare data and models, and understanding what it means to be healthy across different populations.

Jennifer Jones-McMeans, PhD

Divisional Vice President of Global Clinical Affairs, Abbott

Recruiting diverse participants to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD), a costly and dangerous medical condition with mortality rates three times that of breast cancer, is of significant importance. Discover how Abbott improves underserved communities’ access to clinical trials, better serving the patients most affected by vascular disease. PAD predominantly affects African Americans, who are twice as likely to have PAD as any other racial/ethnic group and four times as likely to require an amputation. Therefore, it is critical that both the doctors and patients who participate in this clinical trial reflect the underserved communities most in need of treatment.

Join this session to learn:

  • Why clinical trials must embrace diversity and inclusion.
  • Best practices for engaging diverse communities and encouraging participation in clinical trials.
  • The benefits of designing clinical trials representative of the entire population.

Angela E. Cromlich, MSN, RN-BC

Clinical Analyst, Clinical Interoperability Team, Indiana University Health

Patient engagement and communication can be difficult, particularly when parents, guardians, and loved ones want and need to be included. Even the ‘simple’ task of consistently and effectively communicating before and after a hospital visit can be challenging, especially for adolescents and children.

Find out how Riley Children’s Health and Indiana University Health, the largest NICU in the state with an average daily census of around 100 infants, tackled this problem by developing universally accessible communication pathways between caregivers. Improvements included increasing patient engagement and NICU education to over 90% and completed earlier in the patient stay and reducing cancellations in its anesthesia and OR pathway by over 20%.

Join this session to discover:

  • Why patient engagement and education are critical, especially when the patient is dependent on their parents, guardians, and loved ones.
  • What goals and attributes matter for patient engagement programs.
  • How to improve patient satisfaction through communication.

Modern health care delivery can make a real difference to saving or improving lives.  Often, however, those with the greatest needs, and the largest potential gains, have been beyond our reach.  We have come to see differences as entrenched and inevitable.  The last several years has seen a growing conversation about the importance of health equity.  The real challenge, though, is transforming those “grand ideas” into actual change and real, measured, results.  This conversation will be a step in that direction – how to start the journey from data and analytics toward achieving the biggest impacts for those with the greatest healthcare needs.

Marcus Collins, DBA, MBA

Top Booked Speaker, DE&I Thought Leader; Head of Strategy, Wieden+Kennedy

The best data-driven insights don’t matter and don’t affect behavior unless they are communicated broadly and appropriately.  In today’s hyper-connected world, the allure of “going viral” continues to seduce idea-generators into investing significant time and resources toward the creation of content – videos, memes, tweets, posts, etc. – that spreads. Though there are benefits to “going viral,” one must wonder if virality is truly what we’re after or if perhaps there is something far greater worth pursuing. This session reframes the benefits of “going viral” and provides an alternative aim. It explores the impact of culture on consumer behavior and offers an actionable framework that enables you to create ideas/messages/products/content that not only spread but also take hold in the culture of your health system.

31 – What You Can Learn from 100 Days of Rejection

31 – What You Can Learn from 100 Days of Rejection

Jia Jiang

Top Inspirational and Emotional Intelligence Speaker

Data-driven analytics can require tenacity, especially when faced with the inevitable failure of data, analytics, or interventions to make a positive impact.  Or when recommendations are rejected by leaders or teams. 

The fear of rejection can hold you back. Our natural tendency is to avoid it at all costs which can be detrimental to our businesses, careers, and lives. In 2012, to overcome his own fear of rejection, entrepreneur Jia Jiang started an experiment to be rejected every day for 100 days. The result became the basis of his #3 viewed TED talk of 2017 and bestselling book: Rejection Proof. In this engaging presentation, Jia shares stories from his rejection experiment to teach you the importance of becoming rejection-proof, the basic principles of turning a NO into YES, as well as how to get more YESes.

Paul Brown, MSA

Quality Analytics Manager, Baptist Health Care

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) to incentivize healthcare organizations to provide excellent care. However, siloed reporting can make it difficult to identify improvement opportunities as it can take weeks for the data to make its way through the system. Learn how Baptist Health tackled this problem by using data to maximize MIPS scores and ensure the points assigned accurately reflected the expert care provided to patients. Improvements included a 92.94 composite MIPS score, achieving exceptional performer quartile performance, qualifying for the exceptional performance bonus, and increasing revenue.

Join this session to discover:

  • How actionable data and analytics can help accelerate MIPS performance.
  • How to gain a better understanding of MIPS measures, including the importance of documentation timing for diagnosis codes, medications, and exclusion and exemption criteria.

With “healthcare” and “AI” in a sentence, most people immediately think of point of care decisions or predictive models such as identifying which patient is more likely to be readmitted. But have you considered using AI to establish executive compensation and other operational decisions? Learn how INTEGRIS Health, ranked as one of the top 25 healthcare systems in the U.S., uses augmented intelligence to enable leaders to improve their decisions, align the organization, and motivate change.

Join this session to discover:

  • How AI can be applied in leadership decision-making to transform the organization.
  • How to use AI in a way that makes human judgment and value more important, not less.
  • How to demonstrate actual, achievable improvement in a transparent and reproducible way that motivates change.

Vice President, Data Science and Innovation, Cerevel Therapeutics

The integration of data science into the fabric of the medical industry is ongoing. Biotechs are unique as they typically work with very limited resources but can use data-centric approaches in the early stages of drug development, where they can impart a substantial downstream impact. However, using data science effectively depends on having a constellation of opportunities, resources, and internal champions. The chances for success are further improved by human factors and a strongly human-centric approach to engagement and solution development.

Find out how Cerevel has tackled this by establishing a data science organization early that has since permeated many organizations—beginning the process of establishing data-centric platforms, technologies, and algorithms as a kind of interstitial fluid that is reducing uncertainty in decision making and increasing efficiency.

Join this session to learn:

  • Benefits of applying data science to a wide variety of problems.
  • Steps you can take to insert data science into your organization.
  • Use cases across pre-clinical research and development, clinical development and operations, and strategic business development.
