Thinking Inside the Box: Bringing Health Care into the Cloud
With 4 out of every 5 doctors using mobile devices in the clinical setting for better workflow efficiency and BYOD in hospitals on the rise, healthcare is ready for a secure alternative to consumer-grade cloud collaboration solutions. Doctors are already using text messaging and collaborative platforms to share patient notes, X-rays and MRI images, and for quick patient hand offs. So the need for HIPAA compliant cloud- based collaborative platforms are even more important. From providing medical teams with anywhere access to health information to enabling collaboration within and between medical groups, health systems, payors, patients and third parties, cloud and collaboration players are keenly positioned to help the healthcare industry with the interoperability challenges of today.

The Next Generation Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
With provider incentives being issued by the government (CMS) for Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption, overall hospital adoption of EHRs has doubled since 2009 (up to 35%). Physician adoption was estimated at 72% by the end of 2012 (up from 48% in 2009). More than 110,000 eligible professionals and over 2,400 hospitals have been paid by the Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Incentive Program. To date, about $5.7 billion in incentive payments have been made. With all this money pouring out to providers, what is next for EHRs? How can vendors stay competitive and fresh in this regulatory landscape? And how can they keep up with the building towards the new criteria for Meaningful Use Stages 2 and 3? Will cloud-based solutions take over legacy software systems because they are easier to update? How will interoperability between competitors really play out?

Imaging and Labs in the Cloud

Should consumers/patients get access to their images and be able to share them with doctors outside of the hospital more easily and with transparency? How should hospital labs be rewired to improve health results and reduce costs? How do labs interact directly with hospital systems or reference or speciality labs outside of the hospital that have their own IT systems? How do we start moving large pieces of data, such as Xrays, MRIs or lab results into the cloud? Hear examples of entrepreneurs trying to solve these problem today.
