Topic: Streamlining Infrastructure Availability and Performance Management in a Virtualized Data Center
Overview: As corporate IT environments become more dynamic, heterogeneous, and virtualized, datacenter managers / administrators find it increasingly difficult to monitor / analyze infrastructure availability and performance on an end-to-end basis. In many virtual environments, administrators use different solutions to monitor their physical and virtual environments across multiple domains: server stacks, storage solutions , network devices and applications. Monitoring all these disparate domains is costly and time-consuming, especially since troubleshooting requires checking every application separately to diagnose and resolve a given issue. This seminar will discuss the attributes required in a comprehensive data center monitoring solution that can deliver value, streamline IT operations, improve decision-making and boost efficiency. We will review how a single console domain end to end availability / performance monitoring software with a single view of the IT Infrastructure will support faster remediation of issues with multiple platform / vendor support.

Topic: Simplifying Medical Image Management with the Cloud
Overview: ,The explosive growth in medical image data is forcing hospitals to reconsider how they store, manage and exchange their medical images. These considerations are usually driven by a need to solve a specific problem, such as:  
· Obtaining less expensive archive storage
· Exchanging images between disparate systems and hospitals
· Image enabling the EHR
· Implementing a comprehensive disaster recovery plan
The good news is that these issues as well as a host of others can all be addressed with a single solution. By combining a vendor neutral archive, universal medical image viewer and robust image exchange and management software, one, best-of-breed solution can be deployed on-site and in the cloud to solve medical image management issues.
In this session, learn how a complete VNA solution is being delivered today with real-world case studies and the benefits that hospitals can expect. Examine how to address specific use cases for managing medical images taken directly from healthcare providers. Learn how cloud-based solutions can help solve your medical image management problems today. This session will be presented by the Chief Information Officer of GNAX Health.

Topic: Oh-sheet…What about Rest of the Paper (ROTP)?
Overview: Within the healthcare environment, clinical and administrative systems deployment is moving at great speed. Although paper-based documents are being reduced by EMR rollouts, the need to harness both human created and application generated content and make it immediately available to key users is becoming a business necessity for patient safety & compliance, interoperability and operational efficiency. With two out of every three family physicians using smartphones, moving toward a totally digital and more secure environment has never been a more pressing issue. The Paperless Maturity Roadmap is a continuous journey designed to strategically remove paper from your organization. This session will address how to effectively manage the technology consumption gap by leveraging current IT investments, apply best practices for reducing human created and application generated print output, eliminating paper resulting in cost efficiencies throughout the continuum of care.

Topic: Bring Your Own Device – Magic or Mayhem?
Overview: Many healthcare facilities are trying to understand how best to manage this ever growing demand. Individual smart devices are the most personal and popular tools utilized worldwide. The choice is unique to the user and is a powerful motivator. How do you create a safe, secure, productive, efficient and satisfying experience for different users in your environment? Is it possible? What have others learned in trying to do so? What must an organization know and implement in order to be successful in a BOYD environment or should they avoid it all together? Participate in an interactive overview of today's trends and tactics in assuring your organization evaluates each to achieve success, regardless of the strategy you deploy.

Topic: Data Aggregation: A Key to Improving Healthcare Delivery
Overview: With the explosion of healthcare data across multiple disparate applications, data center capex and opex continue to grow in the face of flat or in many cases, shrinking budgets. And with 75-80% of the growth occurring in unstructured data, clinical decision making and improving patient outcomes is growing more and more difficult. IT innovation and consolidation are critical to addressing "efficiency fatigue" within the data center. This seminar will show how an approach to comprehensive data aggregation will help organizations reduce storage creep and data center sprawl. IT can become greener and more agile by providing both scale and true data interoperability without replacing existing infrastructure. Aggregation can unlock both clinical and non-clinical data in a manner that enables business intelligence and other data analytics opportunities well beyond the life cycle of the source applications.

Topic: Healthcare Cloud – Intel's Definition, Vision, Security and Benefits
Overview: Cloud proponents talk about cloud's best-in-class availability, agility and cost savings. Opponents cite security and privacy concerns and not knowing where the data resides. Who's right? They both are! At our session you'll learn about Intel's definition of cloud, our vision, healthcare security and benefits from Intel and healthcare providers who are leveraging the cloud to provide better care at lower costs. Cloud computing is an important transition and a paradigm shift in IT services delivery – one that promises large gains in efficiency and flexibility at a time when technology demands are growing exponentially. The technology and industry leadership that Intel brings to this environment is broader and deeper than most realize. In order for cloud to live up to the hype and deliver value to healthcare providers, it must be efficient, simple, and secure. Security and compliance considerations typically top the list of concerns related to cloud computing. This is especially the case in the healthcare domain due to various statutory and regulatory requirements governing the handling of sensitive information such as protected health information. In an environment with abundant traditional security issues, cloud computing creates new challenges because it moves data in new ways, often outside of traditional physical boundaries. The successful implementation of cloud computing requires new security models to meet new challenges.

Recent legislation and related regulations have identified a number of performance measurement concepts that challenge the current measurement process. Health IT has the potential to advance quality measurement and reporting by providing access to information not previously available and automating data collection. However, clinical quality measurement is still primarily conducted via manual chart entry, manual chart abstraction, and the analysis of administrative claims data despite the rapid growth in health IT adoption and progress in the retooling of existing measures into electronic measures. In this session, we will discuss the transition to health IT enabled measurement, and the considerations and best practices for implementing "eMeasures".
