• The 2016 AMDIS Fall Symposium in Phoenix, AZ brought together leaders in the field of clinical computing and healthcare information technology to discuss emerging trends and industry best practices in support of the critical role physicians play in the digital transformation of healthcare.

    This program focused on addressing the many facets impacting today’s CMIOs and physician IT leaders, including key challenges, policy regulations and emerging trends. Attendees gained knowledge and insight from industry thought leaders on methods to proactively address the changing healthcare landscape and seize opportunities for leading innovation and cultural change in their organizations.


    The overall goal of the AMDIS Fall Symposium is to provide CMIOs and CIOs with a conceptual framework to understand the key elements of population health (PH), and establish some best practices (as best we understand them in 2016) for developing and implementing PH programs in their organizations.

    There are any number of very good Population Health Management conferences available. Notably, David Nash at Thomas Jefferson has run a very strong program for many years. However, there are relatively few that target the specific needs of the CMIO and CIO, despite the fact that these leaders are often at the “tip of the spear” in terms of defining and executing their organizations’ PH strategies. This course seeks to address this important need.

    The course will be built around key population health “pillars,” including key-topics such as:

    • ♦   Data Aggregation
      • – Enterprise Data Warehouse Strategy
      • – Incorporating External Data
      • – Analytics & Data Display Strategies
    •   Analytics
      • – Predictive
      • – Presentation & Access
    •   Risk Stratification
      • – Analytics & Predictive Analytics
    •   Patient Outreach & Engagement
      • – Portals & Apps
      • – Wearables
      • – Home Monitoring
    •   Care Management
      • – Outcomes vs. Process
      • – Communication Strategies
      • – Provider Attribution
