Hospital and health care executives from around the state will convene at The Westin Indianapolis Sept. 26 – 27 for the 2018 IHA Annual Membership Meeting. Together, they will learn about today’s emergent health care topics, discuss solutions to pressing challenges, network with colleagues and experts in the field, and celebrate the accomplishments of their peers.
The final agenda is forthcoming, but here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store:
BRING THE ENTIRE TEAM: HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT SUMMIT, SEPT. 26
New this year is the addition of the Health Care Management Summit on Sept. 26. While content in the main general session room will continue to focus on leadership strategies at the executive level, this concurrent programming will feature practical, solutions-based content for mid- and upper-level managers. Now leaders from all levels of your organization can get the education they need in one place.
Hospital management team members are invited to attend the summit for a day of networking and interactive discussions on risk management, sexual harassment, cybersecurity, and opioid abuse in the health care environment. Each session will be structured to appeal to health care professionals in a wide range of disciplines, including human resources, finance, marketing, quality, and technology.
Here’s a preview of one of the sessions that will be offered during the Health Care Management Summit:
When Ransomware Strikes
Steve Long, President and CEO of Hancock Health; and Fred Cate, J.D., Vice President for Research, C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law, and Senior Fellow with the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University
Imagine that your hospital suddenly loses the ability to access electronic records, scheduling systems, and even phone service. Do you have a viable plan B to roll out when the unexpected happens?
Hancock Health President and CEO Steve Long discovered the importance of such a plan one evening last January. That night, a sophisticated criminal group from Eastern Europe launched an attack on Hancock Health’s information systems.
In a world increasingly run by computers, at the end of the day, those same computers just aren’t that secure. Long and cybersecurity expert Fred Cate will discuss the increasing threat of ransomware in the health care industry and how hospitals can avoid costly and damaging mistakes.
Save the date for the IHA Annual Membership Meeting, Sept. 26 – 27, and the Health Care Management Summit, Sept. 26, at The Westin Indianapolis. More information and registration for both events will be available soon at IHAconnect.org.
