EHRs: The foundations for a digital healthcare system

9:10

Better Data = Better Care

Health and social care is changing so we need to start thinking open platforms.  Tomaz explains how a standards-based, vendor-neutral clinical data repository with a strong interoperability layer can support an ecosystem of best of breed applications. Through this approach, healthcare organisations can take advantage of new technologies while keeping systems running and creating “an app store” of innovation that builds on that legacy.

CASE STUDY:

Northern Ireland EHR: Proving its worth during the Covid crisis

Northern Ireland’s electronic care record is one of the most mature shared care records in the UK. Thanks to its advanced functionality it has been able to respond to the crisis. Colm explains how, as services had to reconfigure due to the pandemic, the NIECR moved with them as its proven functionality found innovative new uses.

How an EHR is facilitating the transformation of an Irish independent mental health service

A clinicians perspective on how Ireland’s first fully integrated EHR system, eSwift, which has been up and running for 3 years, proved to be an invaluable asset when it came to providing remote care during the Covid-19 pandemic.

PANEL DISCUSSION:

Challenges for eHealth: The past, present and future

At a national level, eHealth and EHR implementation appears to be stalled. What is getting in the way of its delivery? How long will it be before we leave the paper trail behind and embrace the benefits of EHRs? Plus, what can the key stakeholders learn from the most up-to-date and relevant international EHR programmes?

Digital health’s cybersecurity imperative: Keeping patient data safe

11:35

MORNING KEYNOTE:

Cybersecurity from the ground up

Despite the threat of cyberattacks to patient safety and healthcare provision, cybersecurity in the health sector lags behind other industries. Frontline staff need to understand that they are guardians of data and any cyber threat has to be seen as a patient safety issue. Additionally, in developing areas of healthcare digitalisation adequate cybersecurity standards are urgently needed. Saira discusses how policymakers and healthcare organisations can meet the challenges of cybersecurity scale-up.

INTERNATIONAL CASE STUDY:

Prevention over Prescription: How a large US healthcare organisation is protecting itself from cyberattacks

As the healthcare industry continues digitising all of its information, it continues to attract more attention from cybercriminals. As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, cyber security awareness in the healthcare sector is the most powerful weapon against these continually evolving threats and techniques. Progressive CISOs are pushing hard for more employee security awareness training and phishing simulation programmes. Once such CISO shares her insights in protecting Northwell Health, the biggest non-profit employer in New York State with over 70,000 employees.

WRAP UP PANEL DISCUSSION:

Mainstreaming virtual care: Moving from pandemic response to a permanent delivery model

As the COVID-19 pandemic began to unfold, the deployment of virtual care services gathered pace to preserve hospital capacity and reduce virus transmission. Now, as the HSE reassesses healthcare service requirements, virtual care is poised to take on a permanent role. Evidence shows that not only is virtual care highly convenient and cost-effective, it often works just as well as in-person care.

  • What innovations are likely to endure and emerge?
  • Engaging patients and healthcare staff with digital technologies
  • Providing measurable benefits to patients and the healthcare system
  • Enabling transformative technologies to be identified and fast tracked
  • Plus, an international perspective on the effective and secure use of healthcare data
