  • With data breaches and data leakage incidents becoming front page news, cyber investigations are taking on more importance within organizations. This calls for a new set of skills to be developed such as the ability to work with all levels of law enforcement, lawyers and attorneys and within the judicial system. Many of these investigations will call for the cybersecurity practitioner to be a witness and give testimony. What's the best way to do this to protect yourself and the organization, while also providing the information that will help law enforcement and the justice system to get the information they need? Join (ISC)2 on March 26, 2015 at 1:00PM Eastern for our next "From the Trenches" webcast where we'll talk about what it means to be an expert witness and the best practices for serving as one.
  • Abstract:
    There is a great interest in application of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) in cell therapy and tissue engineering due to their self-renewal, multi-lineage differentiation, immunomodulation, and trophic potential. One of the challenges faced in the clinical application of hMSCs is the need for efficient expansion of these cells in vitro without altering their capacity. Serum-free mammalian cell culture media, in particular, require optimization of the expansion protocols. Even subtle changes in routine handling can have a significant impact on the cells’ potential.

    This seminar will cover the variables that can influence the desired regenerative and differentiation properties including medium selection, vessel surface treatment, impact of the cell source, and seeding density. We will also discuss how users can select the correct conditions for optimized growth and functionality.

    Speaker Biography:
    Brian Posey is a Product Development Manager for cell culture media at Corning Life Sciences. Brian has over 10 years experience in cell biology and industrial scale cGMP manufacturing of both liquid and powder cell culture media. Since joining Corning in 2012, Brian has lead numerous innovative technology projects for the media business ranging from customer technology transfer for production scale-up to developing new serum-free media for industrial and stem cell lines.

  • Compliance Does Not Equal Security – A Risk-Based Plan for ePHI Protection Recorded: Aug 20 2014 63 mins
    Andrew Hicks, Healthcare Practice Director at Coalfire; and Mark Bower, VP Product Mgt, Voltage Security
    With the emergence of big data healthcare analytics, electronic health information exchange, clinical data warehousing, and other technologies for optimizing patient care, the healthcare industry has never been more reliant on electronic data and the strict requirements associated with the data. The advances in business processes, technology and regulations require that data security initiatives evolve to address new and growing threats. Coincidentally, in a recent survey, 69% of organizations felt that provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have the effect of increasing or significantly increasing risks to patient privacy and security.

    Chasing compliance is an expensive proposition that doesn’t adequately address the current security threats and vulnerabilities. Organizations that simply want to comply with the regulations are already at risk. A more effective program is risk-based -- one where incremental changes to controls can be made in real-time to more effectively combat current threats to your security program. Join us for this webinar where you’ll learn:

    - Why compliance is an outcome of an effective data protection program.
    - Risk assessment, analysis and management – what’s the difference and why you need them.
    - What is considered ‘reasonable’?
    - What leading healthcare organizations are doing today to protect data, with a focus on securing Big Data for healthcare analytics?
    - How data protection can help without getting in the way of patient care.
    - How do you protect from your healthcare organization public loss of confidence?

    Christine D. Chang; Ovum, Analyst of Healthcare Technology
    All great ideas sound “insane” at first. This presentation will describe three insane ideas that Ovum believes will transform healthcare in the future including:
    • Telehealth is for everyone, not just the elderly.
    • Patient self-diagnosis is good and should be promoted.
    • Personal health records are not just a passing trend, they are the solution.
  • Fraud & Abuse in the EHR Recorded: Oct 23 2009 36 mins
    Jean Bishop, J Bishop Consulting
    Electronic health records may generate a new set of potential healthcare compliance risks and vulnerabilities. The new risk areas, including, the lack of authentication issues, over-documentation and/or cloning, may have significant ramifications beyond billing and coding. Electronic documentation tools offer exciting features designed to enhance communication for most health record users. The use of the system or specific features without appropriate education, training, infrastructure and monitoring may generate data integrity issues, manufactured documentation, increased risk exposure or even undesirable clinical outcomes. This presentation addresses certain areas of concern and discusses potential approaches for detection, evaluation and corrective action.
  • How Great EHRs Empower Participatory Medicine Recorded: Oct 20 2009 47 mins
    e-Patient Dave deBronkart; Society for Participatory Medicine co-chair
    When I tried to move my health data from my hospital to Google Health, what happened was front page news; the transfer was so bad it was covered by the Information Quality Trainwrecks blog. But that doesn't change my conviction one bit: Good quality data, well managed, can vastly empower the new world of doctor-patient collaboration known as Participatory Medicine.

    As an empowered e-patient, a business process analyst and a day-job data geek, in this talk I'll lay out the Society's vision for the role a good EHR can play in creating more efficient - and more effective - healthcare, in ways that benefit providers and patients alike.
  • Introduction to Clinical Groupware Recorded: Oct 20 2009 49 mins

  • Business Associates Now and Then: HIPAA, EHRs and the HITECH Act Recorded: Oct 20 2009 48 mins
    Susan Miller, Security & Privacy Work Group Chair, WEDI with Jim Sheldon-Dean
    Business Associates first made their appearance in the HIPAA regulations almost a decade ago. During the first few years under the HIPAA regulations business associates used PHI of a HIPAA covered entity to do work for the covered entity including claims processing, data analysis, utilization review, benefit management, and practice management. In other words, the work was in the areas of administration, payment and health care operations. This electronic data sharing was between no more than two or three entities.

    The world has advanced and we now have Electronic Health Records (EHRs), Personal Health Records (PHRs), Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs) and Health Information Interchanges (HIEs) that share clinical information electronically. This data sharing is among a much larger universe, among many more entities, through much different technologies.

    Until the HITECH Act PHRs, RHIOs and HIEs were not business associates. Business associates now include these new forms of clinical data repositories and sharing organizations and must keep most of the HIPAA privacy and security requirements as if they are covered entities and not just through a contract, a business associate agreement with a covered entity.

    This session will outline the new world of business associates in clinical information sharing.
  • Kaiser Permanente's Journey and Ultimate Success with Health IT Recorded: Oct 20 2009 46 mins
    Andrew M. Wiesenthal; The Permanente Federation; Associate Executive Director
    There is increasing interest in the United States and abroad in implementing electronic health records as part of an effort to improve the process, cost, and outcomes of health care. Kaiser Permanente has been working toward a goal of automating all health information on its 8.6 million members. Work began, in some ways more than 30 years ago. With focus on a vision for health care in the 21st century, our Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect® electronic health record has been fully deployed in all of our 431 medical offices, and 33 of our 36 hospitals (the remainder will be completed in the first quarter of 2010). We have also deployed a personal health record actively used by more than 3 million members. Along the way to this success, we have made mistakes and learned many hard lessons. The presentation will share that experience and describe some of the benefits of the system.

  • When does Discovery become Patentable Invention? Recorded: Jul 23 2009 44 mins
    John Richards, Ladas & Parry LLP
    The patent system is based on a social contract between the inventor and the state. In return for a disclosure of the invention by the inventor, the state grants the inventor or his assignee a period in which he can exclude others from using his or her invention. The two sides of this contract are reflected in the two principle parts of a patent:1) the description of the invention and how to put it into practice and 2) the claims or definition of the invention which determine who one can sue for trespassing onto one's invention. In recent years the courts have placed increased emphasis on trying to establish a proper balance between the contribution made by the description and the permissible breadth of the definition set out in the claims. Different countries can take different views as to where the balance point should lie. In today's global marketplace, such differences can be very important.

    In this presentation we will look at how pharmaceutical inventions may be defined and the requirements of the disclosure in order to support such definitions with particular emphasis on issues that arise as one moves from an appreciation of the significance of a new biochemical discovery to using that discovery as a basis for treatment. If one files a patent application too early with insufficient disclosure the courts may conclude that one is merely speculating and not entitled to a patent because "the invention" has not yet been made. If one waits too long, noe may lose the race to the patent office. The presentation will try to untangle the issues involved.

  • Developing Therapeutics: The Path Less Traveled Recorded: Jul 23 2009 45 mins
    John Oyler, CEO, BioDuro
    The current business model for biotech and pharmaceutical companies is broken. Every aspect of R&D has changed over the last 20 years, yet analysis of the industry is still based on oversimplified models. As a result of this global financial crisis, the impact of reduced research budgets of pharmaceutical and biotech companies will be played out for the next 3-5 years. There is a need to develop new therapeutics and appropriate business models that clearly demonstrate the compelling value to invest in, and develop, new therapeutics. Four compelling reasons challenging assumptions on investment and motivations discuss why walking the path less traveled could make all the difference. An opportunity exists; with new business models, collaboration across the industry and hard work, success can be exploited from this situation.

  • Data Convergence in Life Sciences and Healthcare Recorded: Jul 8 2009 44 mins
    Greg Nelson, President and CEO, ThotWave Technologies
    The increased pace of advances in science, technology, and healthcare and the need for medical breakthroughs have blurred the lines between traditional Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical Research, and Healthcare. Anyone who is familiar with these sectors knows that the data and information needs of these industries are large and complex and often daunting even within a single organization.
    In this webcast, we will discuss implications of the patient data flow produced by each of these organizations. We will define what each of these types of organizations does in terms of their interaction with the patient and the data footprint that each of them generates. Further, we will outline trends in the context of each industry and what that might mean for the integration of data and systems. Finally, we will talk about the implications of interoperability within and between these sectors including the electronic and personal health record (EHR/PHR), health information exchanges (HIEs), the role of patient registries and epidemiology databases, and the converging data and interoperability standards (for example, CDISC, ICH, and HL7.)
Healthcare Trends and Solutions
This channel will feature presentations by influential representatives from academia, producers, healthcare providers, payers and regulators to explore hot topics in healthcare. Thought leaders will debate the scientific, economical and political challenges and propose viable solutions to optimizing healthcare and medicine.
