Morning Sessions


What’s In, What’s Out in Tomorrow’s Healthcare System
A Candid, Off Script Dialogue with Senior Healthcare Leaders


Competition, consolidation, and changing economics are forcing a dramatic rethink of the healthcare we’ve known for the past century. No formal presentations in this session – just tough questions and real answers. Be sure to take notes as we dig deep into the thinking of strategic leaders on future size, scope, location, mergers & acquisition, facility types, service lines, and ownership.

Cyberattack: Infrastructure Guidelines to Thwart Data Thieves & Hackers


When data thieves and hackers want to break into a healthcare provider’s network, the building automation system is where they love to probe. Most hospitals have Internet accessible controls for their facilities infrastructure which gives hackers multiple entry points to steal healthcare data or create life-threatening problems. Healthcare operators along with their architects and engineers can significantly reduce their vulnerability by following a half-dozen very important guidelines.
