“The Power of High-Quality, Interoperable Data” will focus on the role-based workflow solution that includes structured reporting, concurrent data abstraction, and analytics insights—developed in a partnership between Duke University Health System and LUMEDX—and how it is driving clinical and operational excellence. The solution, which puts information at providers’ fingertips, is currently being used in the cardiothoracic surgery department and the catheterization lab, with implementation in adult and pediatric echocardiography under way.

HIMSS20 will be held March 9–13 and will bring together nearly 45,000 professionals from more than 90 countries for education and collaboration on innovation that is shaping the future of healthcare.

During the HIMSS20 Big Data Symposium, a pre-conference program, LUMEDX Director of Business Intelligence and Analytics Matthew Esham will present “Managing Knowledge Hoarders, Deconstructing Departmental Silos, and Creating Data Context to Make Way for Business Intelligence Maturity.” Esham, a former cardiovascular service line manager at Christiana Care, will share some of the things he’s learned from working with more than 100 heart centers since joining LUMEDX in 2017.

The session will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, March 9, in room W308A at the Orange County Convention Center. The program has been approved for ACCME credits.

LUMEDX will be hosting a full schedule of presentations at Booth 373 from industry innovators such as Dr. James Tcheng, Practicing Interventional Cardiologist at Duke University Health System and Professor of Medicine at Duke University; Rick Jones, RPH, Business Support Manager, Cardiovascular Service, Surgery and Pharmacy, at Orlando Health; and others.
