Fraud, quality, continuity, and the cost of providing care are some of the most significant issues facing the Healthcare industry today. It is not only patients that are affected, but all of society as we try to balance both moral and fiscal obligations.
Central to these challenges is being able to correctly identify those who provide and receive care. The inability to have a high degree of trust in knowing that the right person is receiving care, the right care, or the provider actually performing the procedures they are billing for translates into billions of dollars of fraud.
The reality is that their medical records are now in part or in whole, digital in various system repositories. Merging the legacy physical identity model with the growing digital one is very difficult, not only resulting in fraud but missed opportunities to improve care and lower costs.
This session will review key concepts of digital identity in healthcare and how forces such as HIPAA, Meaningful Use, ePrescribing and others are poised to change the way most organization approach and implement an identity program. Also to be reviewed are security concepts within identity, credentialing, use cases and fundamental concepts in Trust Frameworks that will play a central role in the provider, payer and patient landscape.
Attendees learn how to better assess their current state of preparedness, improve dialogue of cross-departmental stakeholders, and take away key points for next steps on a long-term strategic plan.
