A focus on pioneering strategies and best practices.

The three-day executive summit offers exclusive opportunities to take part in keynotes, panel discussions and breakout sessions that zero in on critical issues. Forum participants will share case studies, best practices and leading-edge strategies for negotiating healthcare’s unpredictable terrain and shaping its future. Content includes the following areas: design features and developing technologies impacting care quality; end of life care; costs, obstacles and outcomes; strategic partnerships and staffing. Below is a sample listing of Hospital of Tomorrow 2013 conference sessions. HOSPITALS AS HEALTH INSURERS Hospitals that choose to insure a segment of their population gain a unique opportunity to innovate, diversify their revenue streams, improve care, and manage financial risk. Explore the possibilities and the perils. UNLEASHING THE POWER OF BIG DATA The healthcare system is drowning in data. Examine early efforts to make use of Big Data, and how the pioneers are meeting the main challenges: the cost of the necessary technology and the difficulties of getting systems to communicate with each other. HEALTHY POPULATIONS: RETHINKING PRIMARY AND CHRONIC CARE Trends in reimbursement are increasingly motivating hospitals to develop disease-management programs for the chronically ill and undertake population-based prevention efforts for everyone else. This reorientation toward population health lies outside hospitals’ traditional responsibilities and competencies. Presenters will offer a menu of promising strategies hospitals are pursuing to address this challenge.

THE PUSH TO PERSONALIZE MEDICINE Peering into patients’ genes to identify those at high risk for heart disease, diabetes, and certain brain conditions has become reality. Some cancer centers now screen tumors routinely for known mutations that can be targeted by drugs. An update on the status of personalized medicine, costs and obstacles, and how hospitals are re-orienting care accordingly.
