Patient generated health data and wearables: What is the missing link in clinical care?

The proliferation of connected health technologies such as wearables, mobile apps, portals, and digital medical devices and sensors is increasing the production of patient-generated health data (PGHD) outside of conventional healthcare settings. PGHD has the potential to give patients better insight into their health and assist them in self-management. However, it would be more valuable if patients and their healthcare providers used the data together. Nevertheless, the adoption of PGHD to be incorporated into the routine clinical workflows and used as part of usual patient care is still low. Therefore, a concerted effort by all PGHD stakeholders is needed to optimise the value of these data.
 

Learning objectives

  • Improve your understanding of current challenges impeding wide use of PGHD in clinical practices
  • Share concerns and ideas with various groups of PGHD stakeholders
  • Develop practical recommendations to use PGHD confidently for patient care
  • Identify new pathways for research in connected health and PGHD

UX for impact

Good user experience (UX) is not just about efficiency and usability. It can set the scene for good health outcomes. We often get stuck thinking about the complexity of change in big IT systems and in big organisations. User experience and human-centred design help us think about health consumers and design directly for them.

Great UX gives meaning to a service. It shows that the service knows you, sees you, hears you.
This is true for consumers and healthcare professionals. To truly know the end-user you need to use different design methods not just business intelligence (BI) and demographic and activity data.

The process around UX, which is to include users in decision-making makes different kinds of impact. It helps organisations be better at what they do, and minimises risk of doing the wrong thing.
 

Learning objectives

  • Explore the range of impacts a UX design process can deliver to different people
  • Consider consumer healthcare design
  • Take away practical steps for how you can apply this at your workplace or your next project

Target audience

  • The workshop is aimed at ALL who work within the healthcare system – clinical staff across primary care, hospital care, aged care and community care; Anyone who uses a device to communicate information. Cybersecurity is everyone’s problem.

Hack me if you can!

Presented by the Cybersecurity Community of Practice

By attending this workshop, you will experience the multiplicity of factors that play out during an incident and you will learn what actions are considered best practice. We will use a model called the C. I. A. which stands for confidentiality, integrity and availability to navigate through a staged response to the following scenario:

GP clinic receives an email that compromises their access to patient information. The infected email was received from the local hospital. GP then sends the email to local allied health professional for ongoing care.

 

Learning objectives

Using an incident response playbook, participants will leave the workshop having achieved the following learning objectives:

  • Apply a C.I.A lens to cyber incidents
  • Develop a template/cheat sheets for what to include in comms and other awareness-raising activities related to cyber incidents
  • Increased knowledge and appreciation for the risks of cyber attack in an increasing digital world
  • Provide guidance and practical take-aways to implement in the event of a breach/cyber attack at your workplace
