CHC15: Day 1
We officially kicked off CHC15! We’re thrilled to welcome our clients, partners, industry partners and associates to Kansas City to share best practices, highlight innovations and talk about the future of health care, all in keeping with this year’s theme – connecting what matters.
Yesterday and earlier today, we had Cerner Physician Community (CPC) and the Revenue Management Symposium (RMS). The overarching themes throughout CPC were innovation and interoperability as speakers focused on how we can accelerate health care innovation around usability and interoperability. Emory Healthcare shared how it has optimized the physician experience. And, Dr. Joan Ash, AMIA speaker, shared her 12 principles for avoiding unintended consequences with relevance to EHR safety.
During the RMS, Dr. Jeff Bauer, health futurist, told attendees that “efficiency and effectiveness cannot be achieve without integrated EHR and digital transformation of business processes.” He forecasted that 25 percent of the health care industry will fix the way care is delivered by 2020.
The first General Session speaker was Jamie Heywood on how to create ways to exchange meaningful data and display it in a way that empowers individuals to be proactive about their health needs. Jamie introduced the concept of healthspan to attendees – it's not just about being healthy, it's about living well and healthy. He stressed the importance that individual data needs to be combined to create better meaning in health care.
Attendees led a march from the Sprint Center to the Kansas City Convention City for a networking event in the Solutions Gallery.
