There are few industries in which technology is having a bigger, more transformative impact than healthcare. The use of innovative technological applications is revolutionizing patient care every step of the way – from preventative care through patient rehabilitation - and establishing a patient-centric paradigm in which technology is powering a new future in human health.

The rapid pace of technological development, the availabilities of new infrastructures and the cloud, and decreasing the costs of medical testing and procedures have opened the door for massive growth in industries serving the healthcare market.

Join MassTLC and leading experts in the healthcare industry for this full-day conference, which will explore the myriad of ways Massachusetts’ technologies and innovations are transforming the healthcare ecosystem and the future of patient care.

, Cluster Manager, MassTLC
     •  William Brah, Assistant Vice Provost for Research and Executive Director, UMASS Boston

9:20amKEYNOTE ADDRESS: The Big Shift

The future of healthcare, and all of its moving parts is not certain, but there are large, “tectonic” shifts that are certain to occur - in the ways in which payment to providers is structured, in the ways in which new tools and technology are utilized, and the “processes” of care delivery. Of these three, the latter will represent the largest shift in healthcare, and the most significant embodiment of that shift will be an increasing willingness, and more importantly, ability for individuals to care for themselves. Dr. Roy Smythe, MD, will explore the myriad of ways in which innovative, emerging technologies are driving that shift and the subsequent ability to bring meaningful change in the delivery of care.

Speaker:
     •  Dr. Roy Smythe, MD, Chief Executive Officer, HX360 and Chief Medical Officer, Avia

11:15amSESSION BREAKOUTS:

SESSION A: Security and Data Privacy

The healthcare industry poses unique challenges for both security and privacy. Cyber threats have evolved from mere disruption to targeted, multi-stage attacks, aimed at healthcare providers and sources of healthcare data sources with increasing frequency. In addition, the rapid adoption of mobile health technology brings new security and privacy considerations, including regulatory compliance, including HIPAA and the FDA. This session will explore recent developments in security and privacy in the healthcare sector, and the impact new technologies and innovations may have on organization’s security and data privacy strategy.

Moderator:
     •  Colin Zick, Partner, Co-Chair, Healthcare Practice & Co-Chair, Privacy & Data Security Practice, Foley Hoag LLP

Speakers:

    •  Eric Cowperthwaite, Vice President of Advanced Security & Strategy, Core Security
    •  Adam Landman, Chief Medical Information Officer, Brigham & Women’s Hospital
    •  Kevin Littlefield, Information Security Officer, Brigham & Women’s Hospital


SESSION B: Innovations in Clinical Research Models

There is a need in healthcare is to improve the quality and relevance of evidence available to help patients, caregivers, clinicians, employers, insurers, and policy makers make informed health decisions. A way to achieve this is to bring together researchers, patients, care providers and health systems in collaborative networks to enable a more efficient and effective means of research through interoperable sites that can share data and information. This integration, evident through initiatives such as the National Patient-Centered Clinical Research Network, has the opportunity to improve the nation’s ability to conduct clinical research through a patient-centered network that supports more efficient clinical trials and observational studies. This session will explore this evolving model for medical research, its unique technology needs and challenges, as well as opportunities for future applications of this model.

3:30pmSESSION: The Convergence of Healthcare and the Digital Consumer

In the dramatic rise and consumer adoption of health-related wearables, new entrants to the healthcare ecosystem are combining mobile and big data, hardware and other technologies. Insurance companies are now adding digital solutions to their coverage options. With these changes, the patient is no longer just the patient, but rather a true digital consumer who is able to utilize their ubiquitous mobile device for healthcare management. This panel will address how companies and organizations, including payers and providers, are innovating around the edges of this evolution, and whether the patient and consumer will be empowered to move from healthcare to self-care, while preserving outcomes.
