This Week Health 5 Years

December 4, 2020: At a time like this, health systems need to come together. Two minds are better than one. Does your market have fierce competition? Or is it characterized by collaboration? Darren Dworkin of Cedars-Sinai shares the huge benefits of collaborating with Huntington Hospital. What does the partnership look like and how will he approach it as a CIO? How is the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator transforming quality, efficiency and delivery in healthcare during COVID? What innovation can we see around real time dashboards and predictive analytics? Are telehealth visits for primary care really working? Do they meet the patient’s expectations? What other tools can be used to reduce touch points and minimize unnecessary contact? It’s important to make investments in analytics, particularly around data science.

Key Points:

  • COVID set new records for telehealth. It’s no longer at the peak or the low but somewhere in between. How do we unpack what that means? [00:10:00
  • We need to stay true to ourselves in regards to what technology has done to healthcare IT. Creating new avenues for receiving care can be tricky. [00:12:05
  • Academic Medical Centers compete seriously but collaborate liberally [00:16:00
  • We all got a really big scare around our PPE supply chains. The accelerator quickly stood up and mobilized itself as the engine for which gallons of Purell-like substances, masks and shields were being made. [00:19:40
  • The EMR is quickly becoming the table stakes [00:28:35
  • Real time dashboards and predictive analytics [00:30:10
  • Huntington Hospital Signs Definitive Agreement to Join Cedars-Sinai Health System
