Innovation in Identity: Healthcare and Patient Identity

November 5, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Innovation in Identity: Healthcare and Patient Identity

Join us on Tuesday, November 5th to learn about one of the biggest healthcare industry challenges: how to improve patient experience and preserve privacy without sacrificing innovation or quality of care.

The Cambridge Analytica saga helped people conceptualize the power of data. Healthcare is one of the most targeted global industries for data breaches, so patient data security is a consistent challenge. Healthcare providers and other organizations were the victims of 15% of global data breaches in the past year, with identity credential misuse and misdelivery of sensitive data topping the list of breach vectors. Sharing DNA and genomic data elevates privacy concerns and what healthcare data is being used for.

At this KNOW Identity Forum, we’re diving deep into the intersection of data and healthcare. On one hand, aggregated healthcare data can play a powerful role in medical innovation, improving clinical outcomes and saving lives. On the other hand, it’s nearly impossible to guarantee privacy and security, and the misuse of genomic data could impact specific individuals.

This forum will explore these critical industry-wide challenges with industry experts including:

Blake Hall: Blake Hall is the Founder and CEO of ID.me, the next-generation digital identity platform that is simplifying how individuals prove and securely share their identity online. Under Blake's leadership, ID.me became one of four companies in the United States of America to earn federal accreditation to bind a legal identity to a digital login. Government agencies, healthcare organizations, financial institutions and retailers are using ID.me to verify the identity of customers. Blake holds a Bachelor of Science magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. In 2019, Blake was named CEO of the Year by KNOW Identity.

Dr. Thomas Sullivan:  Thomas E. Sullivan, M.D is a board-certified specialist in cardiology and internal medicine with over 40 years of clinical practice. He currently works for DrFirst and sees patients part-time in Massachusetts. His expertise in the application of information technology to health care has helped to create an international standard (ASTM) for the exchange of medical record information called the Continuity of Care Record (CCR). With AMA, he was founding chair of their e-Medicine Advisory Committee, worked with the Physician Consortium for Performance Improvement, represented the AMA and helped create the Physician EHR Coalition and is past chair of the AMA Council on Medical Service.

Cameron D'Ambrosi :  As an advisory principal, Cameron leads a team of strategy consultants and business designers responsible for growing our client’s bottom line. He is also the host of OWI’s State of Identity podcast, the premier podcast for the identity industry. Cameron applies a methodical approach to deriving identity industry market insights and intelligence. Prior to OWI, he was an Engagement Manager at Deloitte, focused on assisting financial institutions and licensed money transmitters improve user onboarding journeys while reducing cost and conforming to state and federal regulations. Cameron holds a B.A. from Fordham University in history.

Brought to you by OWI and Uniken, this forum will feature exclusive networking, a Live State of Identity Podcast, and an expert industry panel. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
