  • TED-style talks
  • Small panel discussions/debates
  • Exhibitor demonstrations/kiosks with individualized hands-on opportunities
  • Entrepreneurial pitch competitions
  • Structured networking sessions

The future of cardiology starts today! Join the conversation online #ACCFutureHub.

  Future Hub Theater
  Future Hub Theater

The Future Hub's theater will host sessions over the full three conference days, focusing on how emerging technologies are poised to transform cardiovascular practice, real life examples of innovations in practice, and discussions of the implications of technology on the doctor-patient relationship. Key sessions will include:

Saturday, March 28
10:25 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
4401. CMO Chat: The Future of Health Innovation
Cardiology is a prominent sector in an ever-changing health care environment. Join us as our panel of industry leaders discuss the future of health innovation and how to keep up with the rapid advances in science and technology, the uncertainty about systems of medical care delivery and the growing demand for cardiovascular care around the globe today.

4402. Changing the Trajectory of Cardiovascular Healthcare
See the ways Johnson and Johnson is innovating in clinical trials. J&J in collaboration with Apple bring HEARTLINE, a randomized, direct-to-participant, pragmatic digital trial, leveraging a new heart health app from J&J in combination with the Apple Watch. CHIEF-HF is separate randomized study to assess whether canagliflozin improves HF symptoms irrespective of diabetes, using only virtual communications and data collection via a smartphone app and wearable sensors.

4403. Using Technology to Capture Insights in Clinical Trials and HEOR Studies: Are We Ready?

Patient-generated health data has the potential to better understand disease burden and the impact of disease. Noninvasive wearables (such as accelerometers) can, independent of patient perception, provide consistent high-density data. This data may be more informative than sporadic questioning of daily activity and may prove to be a better indicator of patient outcomes than methods currently used. Join this panel discussion to learn about how technology can capture patient-centric insights in clinical trials and health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) studies.

4407. Overcoming Clinical Inertia
Clinical inertia is defined as the failure of a healthcare provider to initiate or intensify treatment as indicated. Despite the rapid adoption of digital healthcare, it currently takes up to 20 years from the release of evidence-based practice guidelines until they're widely adopted. Combating clinical inertia requires new approaches that bridge the gaps that exist between various health system stakeholders, including patients, providers, and healthcare IT platforms. This session describes a novel partnership between the American College of Cardiology and Veradigm to address clinical inertia for patients with cardiovascular disease. The partnership takes advantage of a new research network providing access to the point of care of primary care providers on a nationwide scale, and enables deployment of actionable tools to help improve the quality, efficiency, and value of healthcare delivery to enhance initiatives like the ACC's TRANSFORM program. Through this partnership, Veradigm and the American College of Cardiology are committing to innovative ways to further the field of cardiology and fulfilling our mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health by delivering a wider breadth of clinical tools and research opportunities to registry participants.

Speaker:
Stephanie Reisinger
Vice President, General Manager, Veradigm Life Sciences
