In­no­va­tion sum­mit fo­cuses on bet­ter care through tech­nol­ogy

Modern Healthcare - - THE WEEK AHEAD - —Michael San­dler

An “in­no­va­tion sum­mit” this week will fea­ture health­care ex­ec­u­tives and physi­cians ex­plor­ing new strate­gies, prod­ucts and ser­vices aimed at re­duc­ing costs and im­prov­ing of care.

The sum­mit, the third an­nual event or­ga­nized by the Health­care In­for­ma­tion and Man­age­ment Sys­tems So­ci­ety, runs June 15-17 in Chicago.

Lisa Suen­nen, man­ag­ing part­ner at Ven­ture Valkyrie Con­sult­ing, is slated to talk about how to suc­cess­fully build high-value in­no­va­tions, and how the roles for de­vel­op­ers, in­vestors and early-adopt­ing health sys­tems are chang­ing. Suen­nen, who re­cently com­pleted a re­port on the evo­lu­tion of in­cu­ba­tors and ac­cel­er­a­tors in health­care for the Cal­i­for­nia Health­Care Founda- tion, will pro­file key changes in the strate­gies that health­care sys­tems use in deal­ing with young com­pa­nies and in­vestors, and lessons from suc­cess­ful in­no­va­tions that have ad­dressed cost re­duc­tion and have im­proved ac­cess and pa­tient ex­pe­ri­ence.

Dr. Ben Chu, ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent at Kaiser Foun­da­tion Hos­pi­tals and Health Plan, is sched­uled to dis­cuss the high­est-value in­no­va­tions de­vel­oped or adopted by Kaiser in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia and their im­pact on triple aim ob­jec­tives, in­clud­ing how the sys­tem se­lects in­no­va­tions for broader de­ploy­ment.

There also will be a pre­sen­ta­tion on how ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence sys­tems can be used to im­prove clin­i­cal ef­fec­tive­ness. That will be of­fered by ex­ec­u­tives from Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal of Or­ange County, Or­ange, Calif., and the IBM Wat­son Health Group.
