Healthcare CIOs Take On Big Data Analytics

As the healthcare industry transforms in order to meet the challenges of shrinking reimbursement, shared risk and increasingly empowered patients, the ability to use analytics to transform data into actionable information to enable better business and clinical decisions will determine which organizations will survive and thrive. The concept of Big Data has moved well beyond the theoretical stage and is presently being leveraged by numerous organizations to change how healthcare is delivered.

Are you equipping your team with the right tools and information to tackle the ongoing and upcoming challenges in big data analytics?

On June 4th, 2017 Tina Esposito, VP, Information & Technology Innovation at Advocate Health Care, Dane Hudelson, Analytics Leader at Sanford Health, Danyal Ibrahim, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, and Ayad Shammout, Director, Data Platform & Business Intelligence at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center will be engaging healthcare CIOs in an interactive and informative discussion at the 2017 Healthcare IT Institute on leveraging data to maximize positive outcomes. During their session they will challenge their CIO peers to answer questions such as:

  • How does your hospital define big data?
  • How has your balance of resources changed to enable big data for population health management?
  • How is success defined for your analytic initiatives?
  • What challenges would your hospital need to overcome to leverage big data and produce results?
  • What are some emerging themes that you think will impact big data efforts?

Reserve your seat to join the conversation and attend the conference. This year’s Healthcare IT Institute is taking place June 4th – 6th 2017 at Westin Hilton Head Resort & Spa, Hilton Head Island, SC.

CIOs Conquering Cybersecurity Challenges

Cybersecurity is at the top of the agenda for healthcare leaders, and CIOs are ready to combat ongoing threats to their hospitals and health systems. In 2016 alone, a study from IBM and Ponemon Institute found that breaches in the U.S. healthcare field cost $6.2 billion each year and approximately 90% of hospitals have reported a breach in the past two years. These statistics cannot be ignored, and in order for CIOs to confidently ensure their patients that medical records in their system are secure, they must get the C-Suite involved and prepare their teams to take proactive measures to prevent potential cyber attacks.

From June 4th – 6th 2017, CIOs from leading hospitals and health systems will come together to attend the Healthcare IT Institute at the Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, Hilton Head Island, SC to strategize on how best to tackle top healthcare IT challenges. A few of the CIOs in attendance - Bipin Karunakaran, VP Enterprise Data Management at Geisinger Health System; Tom Stafford, VP & CIO at Halifax Health, and Terrence Ziemniak, CISO at Carolinas Healthcare System – will be leading a lively and interactive discussion on top strategies, tips and tactics to effectively meet the cybersecurity challenge.

During their session they will encourage their CIO peers to share their insights and experiences whilst exploring topics such as predicting and preventing cyber breaches, maintaining resources to secure patient-generated data, creating an analytics and disaster recovery plan, ensuring compliance with regulations across departments, training staff to be vigilant regarding internet browsing and communicating cyber threats to the CEO. Secure your seat to join the conversation.
