CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allscripts (NASDAQ: MDRX) today announced its 2020 Allscripts Client Experience (ACE) will take place virtually October 6-8, 2020 at no cost to attendees. This event will bring together thousands of the company’s valued clients, strategic partners and Health IT leaders from around the world to discuss industry drivers and trends that impact healthcare organizations today and help prepare them for tomorrow.
On the Mainstage
The conference will feature discussions and presentations on key issues for the healthcare industry in 2020, including the COVID-19 pandemic and its permanent impact on care delivery and other key topics affecting healthcare today. Special sessions include:
Leading Through Disruption in Healthcare
Nicholas Webb, founding CEO of LeaderLogic, LLC
Healthcare has been the subject of massive disruption in recent years, a trend that has been accelerated even further as a result of the “C19 Economy.” The changes require that healthcare leaders develop a new range of skills and insights around the three big shifts in healthcare: 1) Hyper-consumerization, 2) Enabling technologies and 3) New economic/value models. Based on three years of fresh research from his most recent book, “The Healthcare Mandate,” Nicholas will provide practical takeaways to help leaders drive scalable growth and future readiness.
Patient Privacy, Healthcare and Big Data
Bill Cassidy, MD, Senior Senator from Louisiana and practicing gastroenterologist
In recent years, after learning more about the use of data sourced from consumer wearables and patient apps, Dr. Cassidy has led Congressional efforts to close gaps in HIPAA protections for patients and ensure they and the providers caring for them are more aware of how that data is used after being entered by the patient. Dr. Cassidy will speak about the challenges of patient privacy in the current digital environment and efforts in Congress to provide legal clarifications in this area, as well as taking questions from the audience.
Health Equity: Accelerating the Bend Toward Justice by Addressing Social Determinants of Health
Claire Pomeroy, MD, MBA, President of Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation
Despite having what is arguably the best-trained clinical workforce in the world, the current U.S. healthcare system is characterized by disparities, sub-optimal outcomes and unsustainable costs. Factors such as race/ethnicity, education, housing, geography, job opportunities and socio-economic status are powerful drivers of health status, and recognizing these issues as health issues makes both societal and financial sense. Successful implementation of a “social determinants approach” requires intersectoral collaboration, policy changes, technologic solutions and new payment models, as well as a commitment to training a diverse health workforce.
2020 Election Analysis: Politics in Healthcare and the Polls
Charlie Cook, Editor and Publisher of The Cook Political Report and Columnist for the National Journal
A trusted and accurate voice on all things political whose newsletter is considered by those in Washington, D.C. to be the definitive source for voting data analytics, Charlie Cook will use poll numbers, economic indicators, and historical data to discuss today’s political and legislative environment in a balanced, non-partisan way. Once deemed “the Picasso of election analysis” by the Wall Street Journal, his expertise and encyclopedic knowledge of American politics is regularly featured on myriad news outlets. In addition, Cook will discuss the effect of the election on the healthcare industry and what he anticipates the future will look like, as well as outline how the current pandemic has impacted the political landscape and race to the White House
Opioid Crisis – Where are We, What’s Next?
Yngvild Olsen, MD, MPH, Medical Director for the Institutes for Behavior Resources Inc/REACH Health Services
This presentation will provide an update on the current status of the opioid crisis, including how it’s evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic, and highlight recent federal and state-level efforts to address it. Dr. Olsen will describe the impact these efforts have had on treatment systems and patients, drawing from her own experience as a practitioner during these unprecedented times. The presentation will also look ahead to the future, past the COVID-19 pandemic, and Dr. Olsen will discuss what must be done to end the opioid crisis.
