Abstract: While the technology side of HIT has evolved at a breakneck pace, advancement around the applied use and distribution of clinical knowledge has not been able to keep up. With the body of knowledge of medicine doubling annually or faster, quality care delivery is increasingly predicated on our ability to represent, ingest, and apply that knowledge at the point of care. Moderated by the VA, this panel discussion will use real-world applications to explore the gaps in this lifecycle, mechanisms to express and use knowledge and workflow to achieve the learning health system, explore example alternative approaches, and examine the future and implications of knowledge when treated as a first-order Enterprise asset.
Speakers: Ben Cushing, Chief Architect, Federal Health & Life Sciences, Red Hat
Jane Shellum, Section Head, Knowledge Management and Delivery, Mayo Clinic
Jonathan Nebeker, MS, National Chief Medical Information Officer (Acting), Veterans Health Administration
Kenneth Rubin, Senior Advisor, Standards and Interop Veterans Health Administration
