The 2023 Health Care Revolution: Will you be part of the solution or a cog in the wheel? – Join Dr. Kent Bottles as he analyzes three case studies of highly anticipated attempts to transform healthcare that failed to deliver results: Haven, IBM Watson, and the transformation from fee-for-service to value-based payments. What can we learn from these failed efforts? And what important lessons exist for leaders looking to drive change in 2023? Drawing these three case studies and from the science of uncertainty and failure, Dr. Bottles and Tracy Duberman, CEO of The Leadership Development Group, share a toolbox of techniques for guiding an organization during times of chaos and unprecedented change to inspire leaders as they look toward the new year- and just maybe spark the necessary conversations for healthcare revolution.
Health Equity Investments: Opportunities and Challenges in 2023 – Healthcare leaders are increasingly aware of the power of technology and augmented intelligence (AI) to impact health equity. However, due to inconsistent collection of personal characteristic data (i.e. race, ethnicity, and language), multiple source systems that categorize and store characteristics differently, and no specific analytics for health equity, this task is overwhelming and often seems unattainable. By building a systematic approach to evaluating health equity as a core part of its commitment to quality, your organization can apply AI to perform an equity analysis that evaluates a range of measures over multiple dimensions to identify success and opportunities for improvement. Trudy Sullivan and Dr. Melissa Welch will discuss how to establish mechanisms using data you already have for ongoing health equity evaluation and how to drive data-informed decisions.
Health Data, A Value Proposition: Legal Risks with Innovative Data Sharing Projects – Iliana L. Peters, Shareholder at Polsinelli PC will be leading this engaging webinar. These days, data is more valuable than oil. And health data is the most valuable of all data! Companies of all types should consider the legal risk with data valuation, data ownership, and data sharing agreements. Data sharing projects take many forms and address many important issues, including improvements in patient safety, fraud and abuse, population health, research, and costs to the health care system. That said, the contractual, state, federal, and international regulatory requirements applicable to such data sharing projects are significant.

Healthcare Provider Cybersecurity Monthly Call – December – Join the Massachusetts eHealth Institute (MeHI) and the MassCyberCenter for their monthly health care provider cybersecurity call. As always, they will be joined by representatives of CISA New England and the Massachusetts State Police and Commonwealth Fusion Center who will provide updates on recent cyber threats and trends. This call will include a recap of the November MassCyberCenter/MeHI Tabletop Exercise (TTX). This TTX examines what information and resources are used by affected healthcare entities during a significant cyber event and how information is exchanged in order to capture opportunities to improve communication and collaboration.
These calls will continue to occur on the second Thursday of every month and will feature a discussion leader from MeHI and the MassCyberCenter, CISA, the Commonwealth Fusion Center, and additional guest speakers to provide updates on emerging threats and cover a monthly topic of interest from the group.
