How Artificial Intelligence Will Remake Clinical Decision Support

Abstract: EHRs have developed into reliable and useful tools, yet still have shortcomings that must be addressed.  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning hold great promise to turn existing system into more powerful tools for clinical decision support and predictive analytics, and this presentation will cover important new directions in these and other areas.

Description: Electronic Health Records (EHRs) have developed into reliable and useful tools for clinical documentation and submitting codes for reimbursement payments, yet have created new problems with excessive notifications and EHR fatigue on the part of clinicians.  Developers believe that Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning hold great promise to turn existing system into more intuitive and powerful tools to assist clinicians for clinical decision support and predictive analytics.  Automating routine functions with AI is another goal, affecting order entry and documentation of the clinical encounter. This presentation will cover these and other new ways that AI and Machine Learning will help improve the delivery of health care, with a robust terminology system at the foundation.

Making sense out of your dirty data: Leverage IMO Terminology Solutions to maintain or restore data integrity for both primary and secondary uses

Abstract: Healthcare institutions have a growing need for solutions that will allow them to utilize clinical data both within and outside of the EHR.  IMO stands uniquely poised to develop and deliver such solutions.

Description: As healthcare institutions attempt to deal with their ever-increasing amount of clinical data, they face the significant challenge of dealing with the disparate quality of that data and its understanding in the aggregate for risk analysis or cohort identification.  During this focus group discussion, we will provide an overview and seek feedback on services available to restore and maintain the quality of clinical data and promote its understanding of how it affects virtually every aspect of the healthcare ecosystem, from documentation to population health management to revenue cycle optimization.  We will focus on methods of cleaning-up “dirty data”, data normalization, the importance of timely updates, improving the utility of the problem list, and the significant role value-sets for cohort identification will play. We will also discuss the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR) standard.  In addition, we will provide specific examples of how these will impact the bottom line.
