Description

Health Care is in an exciting time of change. Patients are demanding more convenient and personal care. Digital health is changing the way that doctors and patients interact. New technologies allow patients to track their own health and generate data that was previously not available to care providers. Additionally, health information exchanges are being created to enable access to electronic medical records across disparate organizations. Hospitals, clinics, and health plans are faced with the challenge of reducing costs while maintaining quality. With the number of patients expected to rise how can hospitals treat patients with the limited number of beds and staff on hand? Shifting care delivery away from traditional hospitals by leveraging technologies like mobile and cloud may help. Moreover, new regulations are having a big effect on health insurance plans, requiring coordination with state health insurance exchanges. Health Care Cyber Security Summit With these new business opportunities come new challenges. How can security teams continue to defend the organization against conventional threats while evolving to meet new challenges? What can security do to proactively enable new business opportunities? How can you get the business to trust security enough to get a seat at the table? At this unique event, security experts from leading health care companies will discuss proven approaches for securing and succeeding in the new health care environment. Meet leaders from the top health care organizations and see what really works in securing health care. The Summit is the place to come and learn how health care organizations can balance the security, compliance, and innovation required to thrive in the quickly changing market. Topics will include: Emerging health care security threats Mobile and digital care BYOD in health care environments Challenges with using the Cloud Health Information Exchange (HIE) security Health Insurance Exchange (HIX) security Security of medical devices User case studies Who should attend?

Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
