How can health systems protect themselves from the increasing threat of data breaches? Dominic Kalvelis, Director of Information Security at VirtualHealth, joins us today to discuss the ongoing importance of cyber security for health care organizations. He explains why modern health systems are so vulnerable to information security threats, especially as they transition from paper-based systems to digital patient records, and how the security risks entail more than just revenue and reputation loss for the organization. Dominic also walks us through the steps of how to keep patient information safe, from ensuring secure software development, to developing and maintaining best practices in staff training and information security. Thank you for tuning in!

Remle Newton-Dame, Sr. Dir. Healthcare Analytics, NYC Health + Hospitals
How do public health, epidemiology, and population health intersect at the local level to impact the health outcomes of patients? Remle Newton-Dame of New York City Health + Hospitals joins us this week to discuss her work at "The Data Core" in the Office of Population Health, a team responsible for providing innovative analytics to transform care delivery. The Data Core touches risk targeting, access to care, depression, care management, outreach to the uninsured, and support of incarcerated populations. Their mission is to use data and technology to create actionable knowledge at the program, site, and system levels. Technologies like data visualization packages and electronic medical records enable healthcare professionals, as well as individual patients, to understand large amounts of information about their exact health questions. Remle expands on these ideas, and more, as she discusses technology's role in collecting, interpreting, and acting on health data.
