Cyber Security in Healthcare: Don’t Be the Low Hanging Fruit
One of the most successful cyber security law enforcement officials of all time, Chris Tarbell has extensive expertise in cyber security and computer forensics. In an environment where an open computer receives more than 42,000 hits trying to hack it within 13 minutes, how do you protect your assets? Tarbell shares the adrenaline-pumping tale of how he infiltrated and took down two of the most notorious cyber criminals in Anonymous and Silk Road as he outlines our nation’s growing cyber threats and the challenges healthcare organizations have in protecting themselves. Tarbell helps audiences understand which threats they should focus on when allocating their resources. With 17 years in law enforcement and extremely rare insight into the mindset of the hacker community, his is the preeminent voice on cyber security in the nation, and his hair-raising stories prove that just because you cannot see your adversary, it doesn’t mean you can’t protect yourself.

Supply Chain Management and Physician Engagement: A Guide to Thriving in a Value-Based Payment Environment
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other payers are creating new and innovative mechanisms governing payment to healthcare providers. In a transparent and value based reimbursement model, the implications of clinical quality and operational efficiency will directly impact organizational strategy, financial viability and consumer choice. To respond to this challenge, hospitals and health systems must develop an aligned approach that integrates the physician perspective and protocols with organizational financial and operational goals. Hear from one of the nation’s top hospital CFOs and a leading thoracic surgeon about the challenges healthcare faces moving to a value-based payment environment, how to actively engage physicians in the process, and the integral role supply chain can play in the making a successful transition.
