Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.
As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.
Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.
+ How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
+ The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
+ Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach
Across Europe, there is a high level of focus on adoption of digital health as a means to drive healthcare efficiency. In Sweden, there are several projects that have been initiated to address this challenge and there is an ongoing discussion about the role of Continua. One of the challenges in achieving the full potential of digital health is turning the data collected from a variety of sources into accessible timely information that individuals (patients, careers, clinicians and managers) can act on. Interoperability standards have an important part to play in generating this value from the investment made in data collection and storage. By using an international standard, your project won't get locked into one vendor and it will be easy to share information between systems.Read more >

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care was ranked the number one health plan in America for 10 years. Technology is extremely important at Harvard Pilgrim. The worst case scenario would be for one of their members to end up in the emergency room and be denied coverage. So they need to make sure they get things right and that they are timely about it.
Hear how Harvard Pilgrim Health Care worked with Dell to come up and IT strategy to replace their claims adjudication engine as well as a number of systems that surround it.
By the third week of May we should all know the composition of the next government. Whichever party or parties assume power, the next government will need urgently to confront a demand resource collision that threatens the continued existence of the welfare state and of the NHS itself.
It has long been apparent that, as the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change made clear in 2013: "England has an inappropriate model of health and social care to deal with the needs of an ageing population ... By 2030 the number of people who are 85+ will have increased by 100%' compared to 2010".
The argument for greater coherence and integration of health and social care commissioning and provision is driven as much by considerations of coherence and quality as it is by financial necessity. As the Five Year Forward View has already made clear there may be ‘local choice between radical options', but not a choice between the maintenance of the status quo and a radical option. For NHS commissioners and providers (across all specialisms) the challenge is to grasp the opportunity to shape new local forms of integrated commissioning and service development.
The NHS organisations that survive and thrive in such a rapidly evolving and competitive marketplace will be characterised by proactivity, agility and their eagerness to embrace new forms of strategic partnership.
This Webinar will consider the specific governance challenges that will confront Boards and Governing Bodies in an evolving cultural context where, as Stevens recently observed, “my institution right or wrong is not going to be what’s required from the service’s new generation of leaders".
Trinity Health is an 86-hospital system that recently completed a large merger with Catholic Health East. With demand for analytics across the enterprise growing faster than ever before, Trinity Health was in urgent need for gaining easy access to high quality, trusted data. One of the most pressing challenges for Trinity Health was to manage the inconsistent data from variety of applications as it was being moved in and out of different data warehouse systems. In order to extend their analytics platform beyond financials to include clinical, operational, and third party data, they needed to deliver connected, safe, and clean data. This meant adding data quality and master data management capabilities to their architecture. In addition to technology, Trinity Health relied on an enterprise-wide, comprehensive data governance and data investigation program to ensure the overall success of the analytics initiative.
This webinar will cover how the Trinity Health team achieved consensus for this program, collaborated with business and technical colleagues, and advanced data governance as a best practice to support advanced analytic initiatives.
During this webinar, you'll learn how to:
• Implement the best health information management technology
• Boost your agility to gain insight from healthcare data for better patient outcomes
• Facilitate patient data centricity for reduced costs with clean, safe data

Vitamin D intake is low among the world’s population, which is a major contributor to clinical deficiency and a persistently high prevalence of low vitamin D status, particularly during wintertime at high (or low) latitude.
Vitamin D deficiency contributes to the development of nutritional rickets in children and osteomalacia in adults, both seriously debilitating conditions that are completely preventable with an adequate dietary supply of vitamin D and calcium. Regardless of which international recommended intake is selected, the current supply of vitamin D in commonly consumed foods makes it unfeasible for most people to meet their dietary requirements for vitamin D without supplementation.
Emerging scientific evidence from the EC-funded ODIN project suggests that many foods, including fish, eggs, meats as well as dairy products could be part of a public health strategy for vitamin D deficiency prevention in the population. This would positively impact public health in a cost-effective and inclusive way.
While most European countries are impacted by suboptimal vitamin D status, Finland is the exception. In 2003, the country introduced a national regulation which includes mandatory fortification of milk and margarine spreads. The population has now achieved a vitamin D status of 75nmol/L. Recently, the Swedish National Food Agency (NFA) proposed to introduce a similar regulation that will go a step further by extending the products subject to mandatory vitamin D fortification.
