Day 2 Keynote Presentation

8:10 AM - 8:40 AM The Digital CIO’s Guide to Building an Effective Cyber Strategy Roadmap

Joey Johnson, Chief Information Security Officer, Premise Health
Most healthcare organizations have put strategic security leadership in place, but where that strategic outlook intersects with tactical delivery, it dwells heavily within the CIO’s domain. We’ll address the market longevity of products and their path to commoditization, the true level of effort in implementing them, and when is the appropriate timing for each. This talk will equip CIOs and IT leaders with the information necessary to ensure they can both challenge the demands of their security leaders, and effectively support their requirements upstream to executive and board leadership.

During this keynote, we’ll discuss:
•How to effectively challenge your CISO and security leaders
•Recognizing key prerequisites that are critical to buying a technology
•How to navigate the cybersecurity investment noise

8:45 AM - 9:15 AM Structured for Success: Why the CIO & CISO Must Be in Lockstep

Meredith R. Harper, Chief Security & Privacy Security Officer, Henry Ford Health System
When leadership at Henry Ford Health System began to float the idea of combining IT and privacy/security under one umbrella, they knew it might be met with skepticism, so they took to the road. Meredith Harper, now Chief Information Privacy & Security Officer, traveled to every hospital and business unit to speak with stakeholders about why it was necessary, making sure to tailor the message to each group. The plan worked, and HFHS implemented a program that leverages the strengths of five individual verticals to create a more collaborative environment. Working together to address the cybersecurity workforce shortage.

During this keynote, we’ll discuss:
•How the CIO & CISO can develop a united front to the C-suite for the most effective strategy implementation and relationship

5:05 PM - 5:35 PM Transforming Outcomes through Personalized, Consumer-Centric Healthcare

Sheryl Rose, SVP & CISO, Catholic Health Initiatives
Thanks to legislation, the healthcare industry is experiencing a huge push toward value-based care, resulting in more engaged physicians and as a result, more engaged patients as well. The huge difference between the fee-for-service care model and the value-based care model is that the patient is now at the center of the healthcare conversation. Data technologies have allowed the healthcare industry to capture data for decades. However, today’s physicians and healthcare systems are more concerned with using technology that creates action that will improve the patient experience. Many CIOs and CMIOs are struggling to turn data into actionable, focused insights that will underscore a more positive patient experience and give depth to the value-based care model.

Join this session as we discuss:

•New consumer-driven technologies that are helping the shift to value-based care models
•How to keep the consumer at the center of the conversation
•ROI tied to consumer-centric technologies
•Patient-centric healthcare solutions that are advancing healthcare
•How Patient-Centric differs from Patient-Centered
