Special Introduction & Keynote Introduction
A premier cardiologist, genetic researcher, and technologist, Eric Topol sees the future of health care, and he likes what he sees.
As a leader in the movement to modernize medical treatment through the latest technology, Dr. Topol is creating new, more effective ways to treat patients — ways that will dramatically bring down the costs of health care.
Dr. Topol’s new book is titled The Creative Destruction of Medicine: How The Digital Revolution Will Create Better Health Care. It’s about how social networking, smartphones and connectivity will change the medical field. Now with powerful new tools to sequence each individual’s whole genome, and the unparalleled convergence of technology, we have a new window into what makes us tick, what makes us an individual. Consumers have the unprecedented capacity to take control of their own individual information and revolutionize medicine.
Dr. Topol will share insight on the changing landscape of HIT and expand on the key themes illustrated in The Creative Destruction of Medicine.

Mobile Health: Our Ability to Connect with Under Cared for Populations
From this point forward “mobile healthcare” will be renamed “healthcare.” The “mobile” is now so integral to all things healthcare that it no longer needs to be highlighted. If you don’t have a mobile strategy you don’t have a strategy. Physicians live mobile lives through rounds and consumers want to be able to manage their healthcare the same way they do the rest of their lives – when they want, where they want, on the device of their choice. Hear our experts speak to how to engage and manage care differently and better than ever before by embracing mobile care technologies.

Attendee Networking & Afternoon Refreshment Break
The Payer Perspective: How are Private Payers Using Emerging Digital Health Technologies to Develop Innovative Process Change in Clinical and Administrative Practice
Large employers have been increasingly inclined to assume more risk themselves and contract with private payers more for administrative services offerings. With health systems now being asked to assume more accountability for outcomes and be at risk on reimbursement – what does this too now imply for the role of health insurers going forward? Regardless of the success or failure of ACO’s the role of payers within the healthcare ecosystem and their relationships and integration with delivery systems is changing – but how? Leaders from Aetna and Optum will share their perspectives and growth strategies.

How Can we Use Clinical Connectivity to Make Healthcare Better:
A Conversation with Girish Navani
Spotlight Industry Interview
The goal of doing away with paper-based patient records is upon us through EMR stimulus efforts and Meaningful Use criteria. Now what? We want to talk with Girish Navani about adoption and implementation of EMRs to date and what he anticipates will happen through use and collection of organized patient information? This discussion will address broad health policy objectives and how greater clinical connectivity may help achieve some long-term and near-term goals.

Big Data -
Beyond the EMR and Meaningful Use: Harnessing the Coming Data Explosion
This session intentionally follows our discussion with Girish Navani and speaks to how Payers and Providers will manage the flow of new data to be accumulated through EMR adoption – and – how the use of tailored data analytics will improve care and reduce costs? Should we spend time and money sorting through old disaggregated information or should we start prospective programs and capture new information in a systematic and organized fashion? Big Data in healthcare is a hot topic for a reason and this panel was developed to end our event on a strong and thought-provoking note.
