Description

Healthcare stakeholders agree that there is not a robust body of documented digital health evidence.  Health Systems are spending resources to pilot initiatives in a vacuum without knowing what other health systems have tried, while health care startups are suffering from "death by pilot," without standards across health systems to evaluate and share the evidence to fast-track technologies that have a measurable impact on patient outcomes.  

NODE Health (Network Of Digital health Evidence in Health) aims to become the academic home for evidence-based digital medicine (EBDM) by bringing together academic medical institutions, accelerators, startups, and corporate partners to share information about digital medicine pilots to prevent duplication. The goal is to become clinicaltrials.gov for digital health pilots by combining the rigor of Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) with emerging healthcare technologies to help create evidence-based digital medicine.  NODE Health is bringing together hospitals to share what they're working on in single site studies to reduce the rampant redundancy in today's digital health market. In addition to providing a forum for collaboration, NODE Health is also creating a framework for running these pilots in a robust and efficient way, with a focus towards a standard framework for evaluating patient engagement, which is a key piece of digital medicine. 

During the NODE Health meeting at the PCHA Connected Health event attendees learn how Mount Sinai, NYU, Montefiore, Stanford Health, LifeBridge, Case Western Reserve University, and SBH Health are coming together to:

  • Standardize existing governance and regulatory policies to fast track pilot adoption and evaluation
  • Adopt new research designs and clinical trial endpoints that are relevant to value-based healthcare
  • Launch strategic initiatives to support multi-site digital medicine pilots
  • Publish and disseminate results into journals and public

Agenda

2:00- 2:45 PM
Standardizing Protocols and Knowledge Sharing for Digital Medicine Pilots 
 
Collaboration between competitive organizations is never easy.  However, in this environment it is necessary.  Health Systems can't keep up with the technology available to them, and it is just not possible for every system to pilot every technology.  If we come together to share and create standard protocols for both knowledge sharing and digital medicine evaluation, we can accelerate improvements to patient care and population health.  Collaboration, in this case, is a matter of life and death.  In this session, listen to the NODE Health Consortium members discuss:
The top challenges from innovation to evidence to transformation you face in your organization.

  • Who are the key stakeholders driving innovation in health systems?
  • How did you get internal buy-in for participation in the NODE Health Consortium?  Was there any resistance?
  • What is your wish list for NODEHealth consortium to achieve?
  • What kind of innovative research models are people using to demonstrate the effectiveness of digital health?
  • How do people choose between commercializing product vs. keeping it internal? How do they come to that decision, at what stage do they decide that process?

3:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Innovation in Action - Five Leading Innovation Centers Share Their Stories

It is hard to say who had the first, but every major academic medical center now has an innovation center.  As we discuss standard, just a look at the different types of innovation centers reveals that there is no one size fits all solution to creating a center of innovation in a health system.  In this session, health system innovation leaders from across the country discuss how their innovation center came to be, how it is organized, their approach for getting innovations from the center into practice, and the challenges they face when expectations increase and resources are flat.

Creating Evidence-Based Ecosystem with all Key Stakeholders 

We are all in this together, although it might not always feel that way. Health Systems, Payers, Pharma, Tech Innovators, Accelerators, and Investors all want to see digital health mature and work to improve patient outcomes.  We all benefit from its success.  However, incentives for each group are different and priorities are not the same. In this session, key stakeholders discuss their approach to innovation in digital medicine, why it is so important, and where they see their role in the future.
•    When working with Health Systems what are the biggest challenges?
•    How can partnerships between Health Systems and their stakeholder be improved?  
•    How can we align incentives for all to support evidence at the center?
