Workshop

8:00 am - 9:00 am REGISTRATION AND MORNING JUMPSTART

9:00 am - 11:00 am WORKSHOP A: OPTIMIZE PATIENT CARE AND PHYSICIAN DECISION - MAKING BY LEVERAGING BIG DATA & MACHINE LEARNING

By modeling the external variability of data, hospitals might become better able to predict the influx of cases. Improvements in predictability would enable hospitals to optimize decision-making, resource preparation and scheduling of elective procedures, thereby enhancing patient care 

·         Discuss how  machine learning improves accuracy and efficiency in patient care and operations
·         Analyze use cases to improve  patients’ health and care while decreasing the cost of care
·         Understand the best ways to equip providers with the advanced intelligent tools to improve accuracy in diagnosis and preventative treatment

11:30 am - 1:30 pm WORKSHOP B: MASTERCLASS: EXPLORE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN PERSONALIZED MEDICINE


Personalized health is one of the most exciting and promising areas in health. Individualizing care based on information (data) we know about the patient is a major change in paradigm from the prevailing traditional medical approach, where we treat patients based on how the population average responds. Tools and platforms built upon the foundations of artificial intelligence have quickly become an extremely popular way for developers and researchers as Artificial intelligence is able to quickly and efficiently bring precision medicine efforts to more patients and organizations with a much lower bar to entry than currently exists. However, despite some very successful case studies, there are still challenges of interpreting complex data, setting up standard guidance and practices and building a common language across the stakeholders as competition is coming from many quarters. 
This engaging master class will provide actionable insights that you can bring back to your organization. 

  • Hear case studies covering best practices, challenges and solutions for effectively implementing AI technology for precision medicine 
  • Improve accuracy and precision related to data acquisition, creation, aggregation and curation 
  • Explore cutting edge technologies, methods and practices in AI to improve the outcomes in clinical research, clinical trials and clinical practice 

2:00 pm - 4:00 pm WORKSHOP C: SECURING YOUR DATA IN INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION: BLOCKCHAIN USE IN HEALTHCARE AND CYBERSECURITY


WORKSHOP C: SECURING YOUR DATA IN INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION: BLOCKCHAIN USE IN HEALTHCARE AND CYBERSECURITY 
Today more electronic data is available than ever before in healthcare. With the growing number of cyber attacks targeting healthcare providers and pressing issues related to compliance, it is critical for health IT technologists and healthcare providers to explore cutting-edge technologies to streamline the sharing of medical records in a secure way, protect sensitive data from hackers, and give patients more control over their information. Despite the potential risks and unknowns around blockchain, the use of this technology in healthcare can reinvent the ecosystem in limitless ways to benefit the patient and advancements in security and costs 
  • Discuss various aspects of data security and use of blockchain 
  • Explore best practices and use cases in healthcare data security measures 
  • Analyze how security measures are developed and adhered
