POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Chicago, IL - October 2 - 3, 2017
Smita Patel, D.O., is a neurology, integrative medicine and sleep disorders specialist at NorthShore University HealthSystem. She believes in empowering patients to learn about health and wellness, nutrition and integrative approaches in treating disease.
As a Senior Clinician Educator at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, she plays an active role at the NorthShore Neurological Institute and its Center for Brain Health, which focuses on primary prevention to address the unmet public health challenges of Alzheimer’s and related neurodegenerative diseases.
She is board certified in neurology and sleep medicine, and is a member of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She earned her doctorate in osteopathy from Midwestern University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. She interned and fulfilled her residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin, and served her fellowship at both University of Chicago and University of Arizona.
A Chicago-based neurologist shares best practices in using the electronic medical record (EMR) in delaying – even preventing – the onset of Alzheimer’s disease, now reaching epidemic proportions in America. She'll detail data and analytics, care coordination and patient engagement with regards to brain health and look at how specialists identify patients at high risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders years before disease onset. She'll also describe how these patients can be integrated into long-term brain health care and surveillance to delay or prevent disease.
The only certainty in healthcare is uncertainty but what does this uncertainty mean for population health management? How does it affect strategy, purchasing, and implementation? Do you stay the course? Put the brakes on? Or some of both?
Our panel of experts will address this head on. Likewise, in keeping with the panel’s state-of-the-industry format, they’ll also address topics key to pop health success, such as clinical workflow improvement, decreasing utilization, data visualization, choosing vendors, measuring results, and more.
This session will provide attendees with a great overview and set the stage for the sessions to follow.
