10:10  Intel Keynote: How are we going to care for one another?

John Sotos, MD, Worldwide Medical Director at Intel

Collaborative, value-based medicine that is personalized for the individual patient is the global trend in healthcare.   These trends are also driving the intent of information technology in healthcare innovation – care and diagnostics anywhere, anytime.  From what is becoming everyday, mHealth is just a hint of the disruptive changes that lie ahead.  From the Internet of Every Healthcare Thing and secure cloud computing to lab-on-a-chip and beyond, how will clinical grade technology foster this vision of healthcare.  

John Sotos MD, Worldwide Medical Director at Intel — cardiologist, computer scientist, Hollywood collaborator, author—shares his perspectives on innovation in an era of genomics-enabled precision medicine, next-generation medical devices, and truly personalized health care. He will explore:

• Digital health’s growing role in enabling holistic, connected and proactive care wherever you are, tailored to you, your data, and your care community.

• The ultimate digital health innovations that are moving us from wearable to implantable health technologies.

• The calls to action and work needed for clinical leaders, life science researchers, healthcare IT, and application/device developers to make this vision a reality.

11:00  “Lean” Innovation in Healthcare v. The 7 Deadly Sins of Healthcare Startups

Todd Dunn, Director of Innovation, Intermountain Healthcare Transformation Lab

“Healthcare needs innovative startups and innovative startups need the knowledge and access that healthcare can provide.” In today’s environment, attaining excellence means partnering with entrepreneurs in and outside the clinical arena.  With an emphasis on the “Lean” methodologies for innovative thought, startup and deployment being applied to clinical healthcare, Todd explores the importance and common pitfalls of developing business models, value propositions and strategies to assess the capacity for innovation and change.  Featured by Steve Blank, the father of “Lean Startup”, Todd has worked with numerous startups and has presented a number of Lean LaunchPad classes.  Todd earned his Bachelors from University of Utah and a MBA from Michigan State University.

2:45     Fireside Chat: Transformational Nursing, A Chat Among the Pioneers?

The premise of transformation in healthcare isn’t about undoing current workflows or the technology itself, rather it’s about applying technology in a simpler, more innovative way to transform to a new delivery model.  Nowhere are we seeing a greater explosion of leadership in this transformation than in nursing.  The diffuse composition of this panel demonstrates the expansion of nursing informatics into all areas of healthcare and will touch on: 

• Specific personal case studies on how nursing informaticists are transforming the delivery of care.
• Good and bad ideas - things to keep in mind as you play a critical role in innovation and transformation.
• What developers and designers should keep in mind for the next generation of clinical innovation.
