Connect with Surescripts at HIMSS20

HIMSS20 invites health IT stakeholders to "be the change," and Surescripts will be showing up with lots of practical guidance on transforming healthcare interactions for the better. From helping patients get affordable medications to navigating the shifting landscape of interoperability and information sharing, we'll partner with experts from across the Surescripts Network Alliance™ to dig into some of the biggest developments in health IT.

Visit us at Booth 2030 to find out how we can make an impact together.

Highlights


  • Industry Solutions Session: Balancing Innovation and Disruption in Information Sharing

    • W208C
      Wednesday, March 11, 8:30–9:30 a.m.
    • Add to Calendar

    • Value-based care is heightening the need for collaboration and information sharing. Care providers are leveraging technology to handle an increasing volume of complex data. But how can we support the exchange of health information and protect the very sensitive, personal health information that care providers need to improve patient safety, lower costs and ensure quality care? Industry and government leaders will discuss the future of information sharing and how to balance the disruption that is occurring with the need to keep patient data safe. They will explore how to collaborate and act on the experience of other digital industries to be sure our actions don’t undermine the trust patients place in us.

    • Speakers:
  • Views from the Top: Breaking Down Barriers to Interoperability and Value-Based Care

    • W320 (Chapin Theater)
      Wednesday, March 11, 2:30–3:30 p.m.
    • Add to Calendar

    • While there’s nothing easy about interoperability, the fact is that providers and care managers across the country are quietly making interoperability a reality. Industry leaders will take a deep dive into the transition toward interoperability and value-based care, including increased consumerism, more patients with multiple chronic conditions, and a very active regulatory environment. Experts will provide firsthand accounts of recent achievements and perspectives from health systems and the post-acute care market. They'll also address the technology solutions that help make interoperability possible and realize the promise of value-based care.

    • Fictional patient “Laila” has psoriasis and diabetes and moves across the country to seek care for worsening symptoms. Her healthcare providers are able to access her medication and clinical history quickly to make informed and rapid decisions about how to treat her. With this information—as well as prescription price transparency—her care team is able to efficiently complete medication prior authorization, e-prescribing and specialty medication enrollment directly within their clinical workflows.
    • Speakers from:
  • Interoperability Showcase Education Session: Reducing Burnout Through Improved Interoperability

    • Interoperability Showcase Education Theater
      Tuesday, March 10, 11:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
    • Add to Calendar

    • When timeliness and accuracy are essential, access to clinical history information at the point of care is critical. Being able to review and confirm this information has many potential benefits, including the ability to fully understand a patient’s history and avoid duplicate tests and treatments. In this session, attendees will discover the power of tapping into comprehensive clinical history information within their existing workflow and how eliminating duplicative work can reduce clinician burnout.

    • Speakers:
  • Lunch & Learn: Take Medication Prior Authorizations Off Your (Lunch) Plate

    • Room 202C
      Tuesday, March 10, 1–2 p.m.
    • Add to Calendar

    • For too many practices and health systems, prior authorizations eat away at the workweek. Clinical leaders are invited to this Lunch & Learn to discover how Advocate Aurora Health changed its prior authorization process to cut clinic and staff overtime by more than half. You'll hear how the team successfully combined Surescripts Electronic Prior Authorization—which integrated easily into existing EHR workflows—with a centralized medication prior authorization process.

    • It can seem awkward to discuss prescription costs at the point of care. But what if it were just a normal part of your practice?
