In the past few years, the healthcare industry has undergone an ample amount of changes. These changes are more in the ways how the healthcare industry stores data. Moving backward in our distant past, remind us of the old paper-based method to keep health records. It doesn't exist anymore in our present. Instead, we have new data-keeping methods, i.e., online digital records where storing & sharing information is easy.

For almost a decade, hospitals have been waiting for Electronic Health Records to usher in a bright and shiny new era of standardization and high quality health care. But while federal laws and incentive programs have made health care data more accessible, the vast majority of hospital systems still can't easily (or safely) share their data.
Data Security Analysis for Healthcare Providers: The "meaningful use" rules relating to the adoption of Electronic Medical Records require regular assessment of data security risks. However, many healthcare providers fail to take the necessary steps to analyze their security risks or assess their vulnerabilities. This presentation would address ways to conduct a security risk analysis to meet the requirements of HIPAA and the "meaningful use" rules. It will also provide examples of checklists and questionnaires to assist in uncovering and correcting for data risks and preventing potential HIPAA violations. Why should you attend: Attendees will learn what their risk analysis and security analysis obligations are under HIPAA and the new "meaningful use" rules under the HITECH Act. Attendees will receive questionnaires and checklists that can be adapted for use by a healthcare provider to conduct a targeted risk analysis and meet HITECH and HIPAA requirements.

Data in the healthcare settings is used for generating day-to-day insights as well as continuous improvement of the overall healthcare system. Mandatory practices such as Electronic Health Records (EHR) have already improved the traditional healthcare processes by incorporating big data to perform state-of-the-art data analytics. AI/ML tools are further destined to add value to this realm. From analyzing radiographs, to identifying tissue abnormalities, to improving the accuracy of stroke prediction based on clinical signs, to benefiting family practitioner or internist at the bedside in supporting their clinical decisions, machine learning is providing the much needed objective opinion to improve efficiency, reliability, and accuracy in the healthcare flow. Predictive algorithms and machine learning are as good as the training data behind these advanced models.
