Topics

Rethinking PowerPoint: Improving Presentations with Techniques That Engage the Brain

According to keynote speaker Ron Galloway, 300 million people use PowerPoint—and most of them use it poorly. In this hands-on presentation, Galloway provides his expertise on optimal slide design and strategic methods on how to best present information based upon interviews with over 20 experts on presenting and slide design, including the team leader for PowerPoint and Microsoft.

The Intended & Unintended Consequences of Obamacare

Obamacare, although not implemented, is already changing decision making for healthcare providers. This session with keynote speaker Ron Galloway will review Obamacare as it stands, and try to predict some of the potential results of the Act.

The True Meaningful Use of Electronic Medical Records

Obamacare mandates the use of Electronic Medical Records in a "meaningful" way. While this will create a headache for healthcare providers who have to implement these systems, there is a silver lining to "meaningful use." EMRs will finally be standardized and can be studied writ large. A new problem arises, however. Who owns the data? Speaker Ron Galloway addresses this question in this talk.

Wal-Mart & the Future of Distributed Healthcare

More and more patients are receiving healthcare in settings heretofore unthinkable. Wal-Mart plans to have 2000 health clinics in the next four years with a potential 20 million patients annually. Target, CVS, and Kroger are more examples of distributed healthcare. In this speech, Galloway will also cover medical tourism, which is growing at 35% per annum.

The Problem with Longevity

The end result of all the advances taking place in healthcare is that we will all be living markedly longer lives. An infant born in 1900 could expect to live 47 years. A child born today has a life expectancy of 108! Healthcare will have to adapt in a number of ways to accommodate this huge demographic shift, as hospitals will be caring for a larger and older pool of patients. This presents a huge challenge and opportunity for hospitals.
