How the Largest Western U.S. Hospital is Using Digital Tools to Enhance Care Management: Case Studies from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

As the largest hospital in the western United States, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is known for its exceptional quality of care… but also for its high cost of care. In an era of value-based healthcare financing and full-risk contracts, it is an existential challenge for health systems like Cedars-Sinai to bend the cost curve while maintaining or improving patient outcomes, satisfaction, and safety. To meet the challenge, healthcare systems like Cedars-Sinai must become facile with managing and interpreting big data; learn how to implement health information technology in clinical practice; master the principles of digital health science; and, ultimately, ensure all these activities are cost-effective. In this breakout session, we will discuss examples of how Cedars-Sinai is using wearable biosensors, clinical decision support, mHealth apps, and multi-modal remote monitoring to solve its greatest challenges – sometimes successfully, and sometimes not.

Future of the Regulator

Digital Health Technology (DHT) – and in particular a category of DHT known as Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) – will play an increasingly important role in health care delivery. The traditional FDA medical device regulatory process is not well suited for SaMD products, where agile and iterative development processes are in play. To realize the full public benefit of SaMD products, FDA recently announced the Digital Health Action Plan and launched the FDA Software Precertification (Pre-Cert) Pilot Program to reimagine and implement a new regulatory framework for SaMD. The Pre-Cert Pilot Program is aimed at testing concepts and developing key performance indicators to measure an organization’s Culture of Quality and Organizational Excellence (CQOE) as the basis of a novel SaMD regulatory paradigm.
At Deloitte, we also see the future of SaMD and are taking a leading role as a SaMD ecosystem catalyst in reimaging regulation to prepare for the DH revolution. Join Asif Dhar, Hemal Vaidya and Chris Comrack from Deloitte at [xx date and time] at [breakout session location] in an interactive discussion of Pre-Cert concepts and the program’s potential impacts on accelerated DH review processes. Throughout this interactive work shop, participants will view a prototype SaMD online collaboration portal that Deloitte built in Salesforce to test out Pre-Cert and accelerated review concepts and will have opportunities to weigh in on many of the details that will define this new regulatory paradigm.

Virtually Better: Using Virtual Reality to Ease Pain, Calm Nerves, and Improve Health the Drug-Free Way

Not so far in the future, doctors might prescribe a virtual beach vacation to calm aches and pains, in lieu of taking a pill. Insurance companies might offer scenic tours of Icelandic fjords to lower blood pressure, instead of doubling up on drugs. Psychiatrists might treat social phobia by immersing patients in a virtual dinner party. ​It’s starting to happen right now because of virtual reality (VR) – the mind-bending technology that offers immersive, multisensory environments that nudge our brains into thinking we are somewhere else. For decades, scientists have been discovering the surprising health benefits of VR for ailments ranging from burn injuries, to stroke, to posttraumatic stress. Thousands of studies reveal that VR has an uncanny ability to block pain, calm nerves and boost mental health – all without drugs and their unwanted side effects. In this breakout, we will discuss how Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is using therapeutic VR, and tell stories from the 2,000+ patients treated in the medical center to date.

Aerospace Medicine Implications of Advanced Medical Technologies

Aerospace travel has the potential to expose individuals to an operational environment that is more hazardous than what is currently experienced using today’s ground-based transportation. The goal of Aerospace Medicine is to assess the physiological, psychological, environmental and operational stress factors that affect humans during aerospace flights, and to assess the potentially adverse consequences (acute and chronic) of exposure to such stress factors on their health, performance and safety.

The exponential capabilities of digital electronic devices have had a significant impact on scientific breakthroughs in advanced medical technologies. The implementation of new advanced medical technologies are rapidly changing the scope and complexity of Aerospace Medicine and its impact on safety in aerospace operations, including: 1) Clinical aerospace medicine aspects such as health monitoring, prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of flight crews and passengers, 2) Aerospace medical certification/licensing implications (fitness for flight) for flight personnel, 3) Operational roles and responsibilities of aerospace medical personnel, 4) Aerospace human factors considerations, 5) Human-machines-environment interactions, 6) Post aerospace accident/incident investigation factors and analytical tools, etc.

This breakout session will discuss advanced technological developments in genomics, gene therapy, microbiomics, stem cells/regenerative medicine, artificial replacement tissues & organs, neurotechnology, nanomedicine, body-worn medical sensors & body networks, personal biomedical devices and medical robotics, as well as their potential practical applications to improve medical selection, health maintenance and performance assessment/improvement of aerospace crews and passengers.
Exponential developments in medical technologies have the potential to support the expansion of human aerospace activities while improving operational safety and maximizing human effectiveness and efficiency. However, the relative lack of knowledge and experience with some of these medical technologies make it challenging to approve their use among flight crews and passengers. Additional research is needed to identify the practical consequences (positive and negative) of using advanced medical devices during human exposure to the stress factors of aerospace flight. Research is also needed to develop new forensic medicine methods and tools to address the post-mortem implications of using advanced medical technologies among flight crews and passengers.

Increased detailed knowledge of advanced medical technologies is required among aerospace medicine providers involved in the medical certification of flight crews and the medical screening of passengers as well as forensic pathologists and coroners involved in the post- mortem analysis of fatalities resulting from aerospace vehicle accidents.

It is important to keep in mind that some of these advanced medical technologies may have already been used by flight crews and passengers by the time their aerospace medicine providers are made aware of it. Furthermore, in some cases, unless it is voluntarily reported by flight crews and passengers, aerospace medicine providers may not be aware at all of their use of advanced medical technologies.

Unrest Film and Open Medicine

Jennifer Brea is an active Harvard PhD student about to marry the love of her life when suddenly her body starts failing her. Hoping to shed light on her strange symptoms, Jennifer grabs a camera and films the darkest moments unfolding before her eyes as she is derailed by M.E. (commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), a mysterious illness some still believe is “all in your head.”

In this story of love and loss, newlyweds Jennifer and Omar search for answers as they face unexpected obstacles with great heart. Often confined by her illness to the private space of her bed, Jen is moved to connect with others around the globe. Utilizing Skype and social media, she unlocks a forgotten community with intimate portraits of four other families suffering similarly. Jennifer Brea’s wonderfully honest portrayal asks us to rethink the stigma around an illness that affects millions of people. Unrest is a vulnerable and eloquent personal documentary that is sure to hit closer to home than many could imagine.

Unrest world-premiered January in the documentary competition at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it won a Special Jury Prize for editing. It has since screened at SxSW, CPH:DOX, HotDocs, River Run (Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature), the Nashville Film Festival (Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary Feature), among Sheffield Doc/Fest (Illuminate Award). It also has a companion VR piece which premiered at Tribeca and won the Jury Award for best VR at Sheffield/DocFest.
