YARMOUTH, Maine – Industry leaders will gather in New Orleans March 4-6 for the Home Health Technology Summit, an event presented by Home Health Technology News that will feature educational sessions, networking opportunities and an exhibit hall.
The packed educational program features some of home health technology’s brightest minds, including keynote speaker Dr. Shailja Dixit, chief medical officer at Sutherland Healthcare. Dixit has an extensive background as a leader of transformation in every sector of the health care landscape, from provider organizations to health plans, pharma and devices. Her keynote address will look at the ways technology has shaped the delivery of health care and what the future may hold.
Also on the educational program is Lisa Schmitz Mazur, a partner at McDermott Will & Emery, who will present an overview of the regulatory and reimbursement landscape for home health technology.
Shandeigh Berry, a nursing PhD candidate at Washington State University, will present a session on smart home technology and the ethics of data. With sensors and devices gathering data from patients around the clock, Berry will address the questions that are arising such as: Who owns the data? Who has access to the data? How can a patient’s data be secured yet still inform health insights?
A panel discussion on remote patient monitoring as a standard of care will include: Theo Harvey, co-founder of SynsorMed; Michael Sunnarborg, chief learning officer at Reemo Health; and Arik Anderson, CEO of Adherium. Their discussion will focus on how remote patient monitoring could transform the way home health care is delivered and what the challenges are to wider adoption.
Megan Duet, project manager for the Center for Telehealth at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, will present a session detailing how the UMMC’s center has gone from blazing a trail in telehealth to being designated in 2017 as one of only two Telehealth Centers of Excellence by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration, the agency’s top award given only to programs at public academic medical centers.
In a regulatory-focused session, T.J. Ferrante, an attorney with Foley & Lardner LLP, will explore the many
issues and complexities involved when creating a telehealth company or service program, particularly if the provider wants to deliver these services across states or across countries.
In another laser-focused session, Tim Coulter, COO of PreparedHealth, and a panel of hospital, skilled nursing and home health administrators will explore preferred post-acute networks and how they are using technology to increase communication and visibility, as well as how to leverage data and online management to become a differentiator.
Exploring a twist on investing in home health technology companies, Kyle Humphrey and Lisa Harlow of nonprofit health insurer WEA Trust will present a session on what influenced the organization’s decision to invest $1M in, and become a customer of, home health technology company Kiio.
The Home Health Technology Summit will also include a Vendors Roundtable discussion, in which the event’s top sponsors will participate in a lightning round discussion on how technology is enhancing care in the home.
