Jonathan Nebeker, MD, MS, Deputy CMIO, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
Interoperability in healthcare usually means exchanging data; it supports seamless care, which involves accessing data, guiding decisions, and supporting care coordination. These experiences correspond to technical, semantic, and process interoperability. Join Dr. Jonathan Nebeker, Deputy CMIO at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, for a session on how industry and federal initiatives are helping to move the system beyond regulation into seamless care. Learn how the VA is creating new markets for clinical content and services for more efficient care and a better experience for clinicians and patients.

During our Opening Keynote, Dr. Nebeker will discuss how the VA is leveraging technology and interoperability to drive patient-centric, team-based approach to care, including:

•Standards limitations that are preventing value realization from your own data
•Emerging standards for process control and exchange
•Driving the markets in clinical content to increase value
•Federal initiatives and government-private partnerships
•Seamless care; not just interoperability

Roundtable 1

4:35 PM - 5:40 PM Breach Prevention Doesn’t Have to Be Brain Surgery

Umang Barman, Product Marketing Manager, Duo Security

Healthcare organizations have increasingly large digital footprints with the adoption of electronic health records, e-prescriptions, and more. In 2015, one in three Americans were victims of healthcare data breaches; a series of large-scale attacks jeopardized 1 billion records and over 100 million individuals. Additionally, IT departments have lost direct control over the devices people use to access medical applications. To complicate matters further, these applications are now hosted in a mix of on-premises and public cloud environments. This has rendered traditional gateway security models ineffective and made implementing a proper security strategy incredibly difficult.

In this session, Duo Security’s Umang Barman will discuss how healthcare organizations can regain control of their security posture and reduce the risk of data breaches through:

•Easy-to-use multi-factor authentication that end users will love
•Granular access policies that protect all your applications, for all your users and devices
•In-depth insight into the security hygiene of all managed and unmanaged devices
