This popular pre-conference session is back again for the third year in a row. This year we’re featuring the best tools, apps and programs for physician workflow, care transitions, as well as quality and safety.
Let's get moving! An important focus for clinical and economic progress in healthcare lies within the appropriate and timely movement of patients and their information among medical facilities. In this hour we'll hear from innovative organizations who tackle these issues through workflow, communication, and technological improvements. From the Big Apple to Down Under, see how transitional care management strategies are saving time, and lives.
Workflow Tools for Physicians
A discussion and showcase of tools that will help streamline workflow, automate services, and enable fast, easy, and secure communication.

Quality and Safety Improvement Issues
In the midst of the constantly shifting landscape of healthcare, there is a strong and central focus on the quality of care delivered to patients. For physicians, this focus is paramount to the work they do. Patient engagement, hospital structure, electronic medical records all become tools to best implement the highest standard of care. This panel will allow for a lively conversation between the technology innovators on the front lines, the physicians and the thought leaders in quality improvement.
Our goal is to engage academic practitioners and technical innovators in a joint dialogue toward optimal solutions.

Care Collaboration and Coordination - "Working Together To Provide Better Care"
The health care system is increasingly moving from a volume-based paradigm delivered by siloed individual providers, to a value-based paradigm delivered in the context of an integrated care system involving multiple providers. This new model places an emphasis on managing interactions between providers and across care settings, a core competency that lacking throughout the health care system. We’ll look at a number of companies that are making it easier for providers to work together, by facilitating care collaboration and coordination.
Care Automation - “Technologies To Deliver Care More Efficiently”
Compared to other major industries the health care industry has been slow to adopt technologies to make the delivery of care more efficient. Although the recent infusion of billions of dollars into health information technology by the federal government has encouraged providers and hospitals to adopt efficiency-enhancing technologies like electronic medical records, many critical health services are still delivered using inefficient systems and processes. We’ll hear from a range of companies creating and marketing technologies that will make the delivery of care quicker, faster and cheaper.
Emerging Modes Of Patient-Provider Interaction - “Providing Care in New Ways”
Although progress is being made in addressing deficiencies in how care is delivered, the U.S. health care system is still a “broken” system from the perspective of many patients and providers. Many patients still find it difficult to access a health provider. Providers find that reimbursement rules constrain the types of interactions for which they’ll be paid. In response to persistent problems with health care delivery a variety of new approaches to care delivery have emerged. We’ll take a look at a group of companies that have developed technologies to facilitate interactions between patients and providers.
