The Future of Health Technology and Innovation
Robert A. Harrington, MD, FACC, FSCAI; Arthur L. Bloomfield Professor of Medicine, Chairman of the Department of Medicine, Stanford University

The "Future" of Cardiology is here "Today". This session will discuss how computer science, engineering and the data sciences are now poised to converge on health related research and care challenges to offer innovative solutions to vexing problems.

Using Technology to Manage Anticoagulation with a Systemwide Approach

How to Integrate Digital Health Monitoring into Clinical Practice
Sanjeev P. Bhavnani, MD; Division of Cardiology, Principal Investigator Healthcare Innovation and Practice Transformation Laboratory Scripps Clinic

Healthcare transformation with new digital and mobile health devices is complex. To be successful requires improving healthcare quality and by integrating the right technologies for the right patients. In this session, we will highlight the essential factors from provider and patient engagement to virtual care and real-world evidence as the future of healthcare becomes increasingly remote, data-driven, and technology-enabled.

Technology Will Radically Change Arrhythmia Care

Join us as we discuss how capturing cardiac rhythms via wearable and implantable technologies will change the process of arrhythmia diagnosis and management.

The Truth? Virtual Visits Create Master Clinicians
Ami B. Bhatt, MD, FACC; Massachusetts General Hospital, Director of Outpatient Cardiology

Does telemedicine take us further away from the doctor-patient relationship? Dr. Bhatt shares years of televisit clinic experience and how it has improved patient and physician experience as well as outcomes.

Is Virtual Care the Future of Cardiology and Will We Ever Get Paid for It?

Maulik D. Majmudar, MD, MSC, FACC (Moderator); Cardiac Unit Associates, Massachusetts General Hospital

Digital health technologies afford us the opportunity to reimagine how, when, and where we deliver care to our patients with cardiovascular disease. However, adoption of these technologies has been slow, despite high consumer demand. One of the major barriers for wide scale adoption of virtual visits has been the lack of reimbursement in certain states. This session will discuss the challenges and opportunities of virtual visits in the care of the cardiovascular patient.

Ways to Master Digital Medicine Research Without Breaking a Sweat
Evan D. Muse, MD, PhD, FACC; Scripps Translational Science Institute, Scripps Clinic Division of Cardiovascular Disease

Despite great enthusiasm by patients and providers and remarkable achievements in device and app development in the mHealth space, many questions remain. In an effort to narrow the gap that exists between the promise of these advancing technologies and the meaningful data driving improved clinical outcomes, research here has also had to advance and adapt - rethinking and reshaping some of the most basic concepts of traditional clinical trials. Through effectively addressing the challenges in clinical research posed by novel medical technologies, a wealth of opportunities can be recognized and subsequently achieved.

Precision Medicine: Hype or Reality for Cardiologists?

Promise vs Reality: Implementing Digital Medicine into Clinical Practice
Raj Khandwalla, MD, MA, FACC; Director of Cardiovascular Education Cedars Sinai Medical Foundation, Cedars Sinai Medical Group; Co-Chairman, Tech Committee, California Chapter American College of Cardiology

The emergence of digital medicine has the potential to profoundly affect the delivery of healthcare. As with many new innovations, the benefits of digital medicine will likely be overestimated in the coming years, but underestimated in the coming decades. This talk will explore potential ways digital medicine tools will be implemented into clinical practice, how these tools have potential to increase the productivity of the healthcare system, and ultimately how large amounts of healthcare data can be translated into effective primary prevention and chronic disease management strategies.

Scaling Digital Health Innovations in Academic Health Systems
Maulik D. Majmudar, MD, MSC, FACC; Cardiac Unit Associates, Massachusetts General Hospital

The field of digital health has grown exponentially over the past few years, as evidenced by the >250,000 mobile health apps as well as hundreds to thousands of connected health solutions in the marketplace. Unfortunately, very few of them are used at scale by healthcare providers. This talk will focus on the process of identifying, validating, deploying, and scaling digital health solutions in an academic health system.

Embracing Innovation: Cutting Your Path Through the Noise
Regina S. Druz, MD, FACC, FASNC; Chief of Cardiology, St. John Episcopal Hospital; Integrative Cardiologist, St. Francis Hospital; Medical Director, Integrative Cardiology PLLC; Founder and Executive Director, Holistic Heart Centers of America; CEO and Co-founder, iVisitMD, Inc.

As clinicians, our main role is to provide safe and effective care to our patients. The explosion of technology has redefined this relationship, but how do we decide what works, and where is the greatest need? This interactive talk will explore real-life cases for medication adherence, virtual care and personalized medicine in the continuum of cardiac care.
