    With a bigger target on their backs than ever, healthcare organizations are continually looking for the best ways to secure their critical applications and the sensitive data that reside there. In recent years, this has led to myriad security solutions being bolted on and dropped into already complex environments. As the rate of data breaches continues to rise despite an annual increase in spending on IT security, it’s time for a new approach; one that injects security directly into the existing infrastructure on which applications and data live. Join Interfaith Medical Center’s Chris Frenz as he talks about the increasingly challenging task of securing Healthcare organizations and the role virtualization can play in strengthening the security posture.

     

    Learning objectives:

    1. Why is securing healthcare environments difficult today?
    2. What is microsegementation?
    3. How does virtualization help overcome the challenges of securing healthcare environments today?

    Today’s IT teams face an uphill battle when it comes to scalably and securely exchanging EHR data with vendors and affiliates. Data standards (HL7, FHIR, CDA, and the like) are inconsistently implemented, traditional interface engines are primitive, and good analysts are hard to hire (and even harder to retain). The result? Projects get delayed, deprioritized, or don’t happen at all. Clunky workarounds and frustrated patients and staff become the norm, and project backlogs only seems to get longer as interface teams are spread increasingly thin.

    Redox provides a modern interface engine and integration-as-a-service to responsibly and efficiently exchange healthcare data, eradicating the need for custom, point-to-point interfaces and accelerating the adoption of new technology solutions. We’re currently deployed at 150 health systems via the hundreds of software vendors who utilize our standards-agnostic integration platform. We’re beginning to work directly with health system IT teams to extend our platform and managed services. As such, we’re looking for insight from experienced health IT leaders who have seen the challenges of EHR integration first hand, and who want to influence future product and service offerings focused on solving those challenges.

    Learning Objectives
    1. Understand the ‘status quo’ for interface and integration strategies at health systems, including team structure and responsibilities, key software systems, vendor selection/management, governance, processes, etc.
    2. Validate the biggest pain points associated with EHR integration, the driving forces behind them, and how they vary across healthcare provider organizations.
    3. Receive candid feedback on the Redox value proposition and go-to-market strategy, including key risks and opportunities for improvement.

    Traditional HL7 asynchronous content exchange has been working for the most part, but as we move toward the dream of a true longitudinal health record, how can we free information from closed systems and interoperate more deeply with the EMR? Today’s typical information exchange tends to be in isolation compared to what may be achievable by consuming data more easily and with higher accuracy through new industry platforms like Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR).<

    Historically, security, risk, compliance and quality functions have been less than willing to embrace a centralized risk-ownership model. There can be conflicting priorities, “Turf Wars”, and process difficulties, leading to resistance to change. This session will look at ways to challenge the status quo and how to contribute to customers’ risk compliance and accreditation, while enhancing internal risk management, controls, and compliance practices. We will explain our “Tiered Approach to Protection” and how this wraps a system of security, risk management, and assurance to protect and improve the safety and security of the data. We will discuss a risk governance program and how ensure it works with the board of directors, product development, operations, IT, and customers.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Explain what are the best practices in information security and the advantages of rolling up organizational risks into one team
    • Describe how to organize around a centralized risk ownership to obtain industry certifications
    • Describe how to improve the coordination between information security, privacy, compliance, legal, and internal audit departments.
    • Demonstrate an approach to Enterprise Risk Management that incorporates LEAN Six Sigma and Continuous Process Improvement
    • Explain how organizational strategy was chosen and how its implementation is helping to improve the organization and reduce enterprise risk for our customers
