Personalizing the Patient Experience: Harnessing the Power of AI to Drive Real Transformational Change

With a focus on reducing administrative burdens, increasing operational efficiencies, and leveraging data to deliver better patient care, healthcare organizations are adopting technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced analytics capabilities so that clinical staff can focus more on care delivery.   Critical in today’s healthcare environment, leadership must identify ways to deliver value that improves their overall decision-making approach while personalizing the patient’s experience. 

By doing so, organizations can realize a competitive advantage needed to drive true transformational change.  In this HIMSS24 opening keynote, Robert Garrett, CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health, will share his vision and strategies that place next generation tools like artificial Intelligence into the hands of experienced clinicians that positively impacts patient care.  The result? A potential game-changer for our nation’s healthcare system while potentially revolutionizing how we deliver and receive care.

We're pleased to have Matt Renner, President of North America and Global Startups at Google Cloud, as a keynote speaker for HIMSS24. With over 25 years of experience in sales and technology, including leadership roles at Microsoft, Salesforce, and Oracle Corporation, Matt brings invaluable insights from the forefront of cloud computing. His expertise and commitment to innovation make him a compelling voice in the industry, and we eagerly anticipate his thoughts on shaping the future of healthcare.

The Future of Healthcare: How Robotics, Automation, and AI are Transforming Care Delivery

Keller Rinaudo believes that robots, automation, artificial intelligence, and drones will dramatically transform the healthcare industry in ways that markedly affect medical professionals, organizations, and consumers. It is the same visionary capability that allowed him to envision the effects of drones on healthcare in remote parts of Africa that allows him to foresee where else drones—and other types of advanced technology—could significantly impact healthcare (and other major industries, for that matter). With this talk, Rinaudo offers a deep look at the technological revolution and likely future breakthroughs, as well as possibilities for how new industrialization will alter healthcare as we know it.

Artificial Intelligence and Healthcare: Addressing Legal and Operational Risks with Current Best Practices

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been a topic of both optimism and concern in recent years. While some influencers predict sunny days ahead with AI, others are more skeptical. However, healthcare organizations can increase the likelihood of a positive experience with AI platforms by understanding the inherent risks, so they can effectively navigate these challenges with a clear plan. Michael Ruggio and Mitzi Hill, law partners at Taylor English Duma LLP, will shed light on best practices to address these legal and sometimes operational challenges that AI systems bring to patient care, patient communications, internal policies and training, supply chain management, and reimbursement.

Exploiting Trust with Technology: The Human Element of Security

Security protocols are often built on trust and trust is exploited by attackers—like our keynote. From email to phone communications, attackers study how to insert themselves within your trusted circles and protocols to leverage that trust against you. During this session, SocialProof Security CEO Rachel Tobac dives into the anatomy of trust exploitation in real world social engineering attacks, walks through step-by-step examples of attacks that happened during COVID-19, and identifies the steps you can take to protect their data, money, security and privacy from real world attackers, even during a global crisis.
