Panel Session - Data Exchange in the Acute Care Setting

The multi-institutional panel will draw from the collective experience of
three different data exchange projects that range from plan to
post-implementation. Data exchange projects have focused on collecting and
redistributing clinical data primarily through local collaboration. Common
challenges have included securing stakeholder buy-in, establishing stable
financial models, and instituting policies that protect patient data while
providing appropriate access.


Panel speakers include Dr. J.T. Finnell from Regenstrief's INPC network, Dr.
Mark Lipton from New York's NYCLIX project, and Dr. Jeffrey Saver from
UCLA's Stroke Network telemedicine initiative. These panelists will discuss
strategies for tackling the organizational and financial aspects of data
exchange projects and explore the potential of expanding local networks to
improve a specific patient outcome measure.


Poster Session

The poster session will provide a forum for illustrating and discussing
participants' latest information technology, knowledge management, and
health informatics or bioinformatics projects. This session will be held in
one section of the main AMIA evening poster session on Tuesday, November 13
from 5-7 pm. 


Dinner Event

Dinner will follow the evening poster session and give attendees the
opportunity to further discuss projects and ideas. Featured speaker, Donald
Levick of Lehigh Valley Hospital Network, will give a dynamic presentation
on his organization's remote ICU monitoring system. Dinner is a ticketed
event at $55 per person and tickets may be purchased through the AMIA
registration form.
