Day 2 :
Keynote: Intelligent Assistance: Harnessing “Big Data” Technologies to Assist in Providing Timely and Safe Patient Care
Time : 10:00-10:40
Charles is the Chief Innovation Officer for Clearsense, a healthcare analytics organization specializing in bringing “Big Data” technologies to healthcare. Prior to Clearsense Charles was the Enterprise Analytics Architect for Stony Brook Medicine. In his role he is developed the analytics infrastructure to serve the clinical, operational, quality and research needs of the organization. He was a founding member of the team that developed the Health and Human Services award winning application "Now Trending" to assist in the early detection of disease outbreaks utilizing social media feeds. In 2015 Charles served as co-editor for “Mastering Healthcare Informatics” published by Sigma Theta Tau. Charles holds a MS in Technology Management from Stevens Institute of Technology and is the President of the American Nursing Informatics Association.
In 2010 the Clinical Informatics Team at the University of California, Irvine set out introduce technologies deployed by Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Yahoo into healthcare. The ability to utilize and process data by these organizations in a very real time nature was compelling. Even more compelling was the similarities in data types shared by these organizations as well as healthcare such as structured, unstructured, images and video. This presentation will focus on the work done over the past six years regarding the infrastructure required to ingest healthcare and healthcare related data into a “Big Data” ecosystem. Additional areas of focus will be on the clinical applications built on the ecosystem utilizing streaming data for monitoring patients in high acuity areas in real time by virtue of streaming data and streaming analytics. Real time quality assessment and monitoring will be discussed as healthcare is moving from retrospective quality reporting to a real time assessment of patients meeting quality measures. Data not traditionally found within the healthcare data environment will also be explored and the use cases for acquiring high value data such as social determinates of health, social media geographic information systems and public data will be covered.

Werner Leodolter is CIO of KAGes . Previously he served as CIO in steel industry. 2008-2013 he led the Styrian hospital GmbH ( KAGes ) – a 17000 employees hospital group in Austria - as CEO through a period of organizational realignment . He is also member of the telehealth services commission of the Federal Ministry of Health of Austria. He is university professor of Applied Management in Health Care at the University of Graz (KFU). He is author of the book (in German) "The subconscious mind of organizations: New technologies - Rethinking organizations", published at Springer in 2015.
New technologies are changing the individual´s and the organization´s perception of their environment, they change learning processes, the management of knowledge, etc. - they also change healthcare itself – the digital transformation is on its way. This disruptive innovation requires a new, complementary perspective. The subconscious mind of organizations as a powerful metaphor describes the comprehensive view of an healthcare organization and its internal and external interconnectedness. It helps to find new ways to design and build organisations. The new technologies are becoming increasingly part of the ICT infrastructure which itself is a part of the subconscious mind of organizations. Based upon that the subconscious mind of organizations is composed and formed from different self-similar perspectives - Board, CEO, CFO, Chief Physician, technical expert, etc.To form the subconscious of organizations means to prepare and focus the organizations in their methods, tools and processes and redirect them to exploit opportunities of change while controlling the risks. Following the proposed guidelines organizations should be able to deal with uncertainty, complexity and upheaval as good as possible. The design of the ICT infrastructure in clever platforms enables both collaboration and innovation. It is important to develop "intelligent organizations", in which certain activities perform in the "subconscious mind of the organization”. This should be deliberately designed and regularly evaluated, so that future healthcare organizations will be a kind of “hybrid intelligence” - excellent, successful and sustainable organizations with a significant share of artificial intelligence but the clear primacy of the human and organizational component.
