Helping patients navigate the care continuum requires dedicated work and the latest technology. In these three sessions at Cerner Health Conference 2017, we'll explore how health care organizations can make behavioral and physical health plans unique to each patient.

With the increasing focus on value-based care, health systems and long-term post-acute care venues must start to coordinate care in new ways. This panel session will discuss examples of collaboration across the health care continuum using Cerner solutions. Topics will include data sharing, workflow enhancements, time savings and patient care benefits. Nursing informaticians, clinical leaders and clinicians will give their perspectives on implementations, maintenance and ongoing use of their solutions.

3. Becoming a Data-Driven Organization on the Journey to HIMSS 7 (Session #744)

Damian Jankowicz, vice president information management, chief information officer and chief privacy officer at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health

Over the last five years, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) has transformed itself into a data-driven organization by leveraging data from its Cerner Millennium® system and extensive research enterprise to advance clinical care and brain science. In this session, Damian Jankowicz will discuss strategic and tactical elements required for the transformation. He will also present a number of case studies in which data is used to drive care, including computerized physician order entry, closed loop medication administration and care planning, as well as specialized examples. The transformation is presented in the context of the journey to HIMSS 7.

Jankowicz leads information management and technology, scientific computing, the enterprise project management office and the business intelligence portfolio for CAMH, the biggest academic mental health and addictions science center in Canada.
