Why Clinical Quality Should Be Your Core Busines Strategy - Brent C. James - MD, MStat, and Former Vice President and Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Healthcare
Over 100 years ago, healing professionals and healthcare itself went through a massive transformation that led us to the models of care delivery that we use today. Dr. Brent James argues that we are now, again, at a once-in-a-century inflection point to change the course of healthcare. Change takes real effort, but provides massive opportunity.
Those changes include a move away from the highly-profitable fee-for-service payment to fee-for-value. An IOM report, published in 2010, substantiated that more than a third of healthcare spending is waste. Pay-for-value aligns financial returns for those who invest in waste elimination. It also requires that clinicians move away from the craft of medicine to the science of medicine, using data and evidence to drive better clinical care. Come learn how to put these principles in action in your organization.
Wasted: What's Holding Healthcare Back–and How You Can Move Ahead to Transformational Improvement - Tom Burton, Co-founder and Chief Improvement Officer, Health Catalyst
Known for his game-based learning, Tom Burton, co-founder and Chief Fun Officer of Health Catalyst, will discuss the importance of unleashing data to drive massive clinical, financial, and operational improvements. His game-based learning approach creates an environment of synergy where one plus one equals three and, while a picture may be worth a thousand words, a game may be worth ten thousand. Tom has developed a game that will be the basis of experiential connection with unleashing data principles that have driven improvements at some of the most revered health care organizations across the country.
This session will be full of wonder, introspection, and practical instruction that will leave you with a strategy, tactics, and supporting logic to make changes. Tom will talk through how to drive improvements across a spectrum: organic improvement -> fast track improvement -> comprehensive outcomes. Tom will have teams of people leading small group interactions at individual tables creating a truly hands-on experience.
Making Patients Safer Through Event Reporting and Prediction - Megan Oldenburg, APRN, ACNS-BC, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Allina Health, and Kassie Ryan, RN, MSN, Engagement Lead for Health Catalyst, Allina Health
For patients, safety in hospitals and health systems remains a serious concern, justified by the fact that medical errors are now the third leading cause of death in the U.S. Artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics have made a difference throughout many industries including healthcare, by improving a large variety of outcomes and driving improvement.
Recognizing the danger to patients posed by medical errors, Allina Health, a large healthcare system serving the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, utilized its analytics platform, a trigger-based data-driven surveillance tool, and machine learning to identify and investigate a broad base of harm events. Join this session to hear Megan Oldenburg, APRN, ACNS-BC and Kassie Ryan, RN, MSN share the steps that Allina Health took to identify the problem, develop a predictive model and to enact it to achieve outstanding results.
How to Build an Enterprise Data Strategy - Ryan Smith, Senior Vice President/Executive Advisor, Health Catalyst
Join Ryan in an interactive discussion about the best practices of establishing a data and analytics strategy. Often overlooked and too seldom given the time and attention necessary to be optimal, data governance committees establish the team member roles and responsibilities and the workflow to support effective use of data across an organization to drive analytical insights.
Ryan Smith brings nearly 25 years of health information technology and leadership experience from two of the largest non-profit integrated healthcare delivery networks in the country: Intermountain Healthcare and Banner Health. As CIO at Banner Health—a 28-hospital health system that provides services in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada and Wyoming—Smith led the development and implementation of key technologies and strategies that positioned Banner as an industry leader in healthcare innovation.
As senior vice president and executive advisor at Health Catalyst, Smith works directly with client CIOs across the country to help them design strategies to consolidate point-solution analytics, increase the efficiency of information delivery, and accelerate improvement.

Improving Sepsis Care with Data Analytics - Mischa Adams, MSN, RN, CCRN, Clinical Standards Coordinator, Allina Health
In the U.S., over 1.5 million people are treated for sepsis annually. One in four people with sepsis die, making improving early identification and providing patients with timely treatment a top priority. As such, hospitals and health systems continue to look to improve outcomes for patients with sepsis. Seeing this need for improvement, Allina Health, a not-for-profit healthcare system, implemented a rapid process improvement project using bundled care, focused on the early identification of sepsis.
After turning to an analytics platform to replace its burdensome manual review process, Allina Health was able to identify opportunities for improvement and develop evidence-based processes for sepsis identification and treatment. The results were an impressive 18.6 percent relative reduction in mortality rate and 10.9 percent relative reduction in hospital LOS for all patients with sepsis. Join this session to learn how you too can apply a comprehensive, data-driven approach for early identification to reduce variation in sepsis care.
