The imagined fuels reality

“Will the machines save us? Only if we help them.”
As physicians, we have a duty to serve our community members, our friends and family, and the future. But what if our community is global, our friends and family are more than just those we know personally, and our future is one in which technology enhances how we serve each other.
I believe in this vision and have begun connecting with physicians, innovators, entrepreneurs, and scientists around the globe with my podcast, “Man & Machine.”

Crossing the AI in healthcare implementation chasm

Of the thousands of AI applications that have been announced so far, only a handful are used in routine clinical care and none are cited as standards for use in professional clinical guidelines. Does this mean AI has failed to cross the translational chasm? Not indeed, it is just the approach so far has been exploratory rather than driven by implementation science. In this presentation, I cover the reasons and solutions in my presentation.

Driving health equity through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning - a distinct plausibility.

The advent of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) has revolutionized medical care in many ways from operating rooms, drug discovery, specialized care pathways, and to how precision medicine is being delivered to patients. However, the question still remains to if and how this powerful platform can help address many of the prevailing health inequities and help improve access, treatment, and outcomes.

8:30 AM PT

Technology and Addressing Access and Bias in Pediatrics

Technologic innovation toward enhancing care for children currently utilizes Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) as a core component of design. This session will discuss how AI/ML uses data sets to power algorithms, and how this technology can improve access to care while addressing unconscious bias in both diagnosis and treatment. Examples of current technology powered by AI/ML as well as the advocacy with regard to overall health equity will be highlighted.

Maximizing Physician Impact at the Intersection of Clinical Operations, Artificial Intelligence and Business Strategy

The need for artificial intelligence continues to grow, but in areas that oftentimes fall outside the roadmap or strategy of healthcare executives or into an area of limited experience and expertise such as artificial intelligence. Large technology vendors and early stage startups have all struggled to introduce and rapidly iterate new solutions to meet the needs of healthcare providers. This discussion will explore the key challenges facing companies trying to expand the use of A.I.

Why Physicians Make Great Innovators

Healthcare industry is the largest industry in the US. It employs more people and consumes more GDP than any other industry. This provides a great medium for disruptive innovation. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many problems to the forefront. Physicians on the other hand spend more than a decade in education, training and specialization. They are smart, highly skilled, have grit and are not afraid of hard work - the same characteristics needed for innovators to succeed.

Why Your Clinical Data Strategy Isn't Working (and how to fix it)

Over the past 10 years, there have been two major problems in healthcare that are sides to the same coin: Poor clinical data quality & High rates of physician burnout.
Dr. Shaker will leverage his own experience as an MD turned clinical data analyst and use real-world use cases to demonstrate how the two topics are closely linked. He'll walk us through a history of CDI, why it has caused a lot of pain for doctors and what paths exist to heal that relationship and fix both problems!

Tackling the Full Medtech Stack as a Physician, From Medical Device to Software and Data

In 2018 I launched my second startup, Oncodisc (now Veris Health post acquisition), to develop an intelligent implantable device for oncology. Our solution quickly grew to include a software platform and data analytics, technology required to extract insights and value from our intelligent device. Through this journey, I have been immersed in healthcare software and database development, and most importantly built the professional network required to develop the full technology stack.

How you can talk about your idea, and what you can and can’t do with it to avoid potentially irreversible patentability issues.

You’ve had your stroke of genius. Your next inclination is to immediately do one of two things: 1) Yell it from the rooftops and share it with anyone who will listen or 2) keep it close to the vest, not tell anyone, and guard your idea like it’s the One Ring. Both instincts are usually wrong. At least in their absolute forms. Knowing when to share your idea and when to shush is a vital distinction on the journey to innovative success. As we’ll discuss more, sharing too much and too soon can have detrimental effects on your ability to later protect your idea. Conversely, keeping your idea a secret may also not be an option depending on your funding goals. Join us to learn how to strike the balance between these two extremes.

PATIENT CENTERED CARE

And Digital Health for All... With the help of behavioral economics

Digital health offers great opportunities for accessibility and greater patient involvement. And yet significant gaps exist between how much richer people use it and benefit from it, compared with the poor. Likewise, usage varies across ages. To better serve everyone, we need to use psychology, to understand their barriers, and behavioral economics, to motivate them. I’ll describe an intervention that got non-techy seniors hooked on an adherence to medication app. Labor intensive, but effective.

Being Patch Adams

There is no doubt that healthcare is one of the most complex and challenging spheres for innovation. Unfortunately, the healthcare industrial complex has made it a race towards cost savings and metrics and has lost sight of the most important relationship - that of the physician & patient. We must return to innovation that is driven by expertise and patient-centered care.

Through the Looking Glass: the Impact of a Price Transparent Model

The emergence of direct pay models and direct to consumer healthcare have changed the way patients seek and receive medical care. A paternalistic, monolithic model is no longer viable as technologies have shifted care away from institutions alone and patients have a lot more than skin in the game. We have to rethink our dependence on an insurance risk model.

Behavioral health is a Concern

Mental and behavioral health are growing concerns amongst the nation. Addressing these issues should be a partnership. Most individuals with these issues will rather hide them than address them. Physicians have the unique opportunity to bridge the gap that many fear to cross, speaking from the experience of a individual who had these problems, I can share how the partnership with my physician reduced the fear about receiving help, how the strategy was formed and the success of this partner ship.

VP/CMO, Mercy General Hospital/Dignity Health/CommonSpirit Health

The Evolving Role of the CMO

Historically, the CMO role oversaw quality, patient safety, and medical staff credentialing. As we entered the pandemic, the executive team needed immediate access to quality clinical information, something easily provided by the CMO. This turned the CMO into a strategic partner and this person will be further tapped to help develop strategies for the transition into a post-pandemic world. The pandemic also highlighted that the well-being of the medical staff falls squarely upon the CMO.

Sustainable Employability

Employers face a major challenge. Getting the right people in the right place is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive due to developments such as digitization, aging and migration. In addition, we are now experiencing a crisis that endangers the (mental) health of employees (more in the work stress data report). Sustainable employability helps to avoid these issues. So how can your employees work healthier, more enjoyable, more productive and longer?

Managing CME in Two Steps

The CME Requirements and ongoing credentialing process are inefficient and flawed. Requirements are due on an asynchronous timeline with complex regulations, which creates a heavy administrative burden on the healthcare systems, clinicians and administrators. The CME process can be streamlined and simplified into two steps. We will present a solution that can help administrators and clinicians to automate the process of managing state licenses, board certifications, to other expiring credentials
