November's Tap into TechSpring: A Learning Health System: From Bench to Bedside and Beyond

Join us for our monthly open-house networking event called Tap into TechSpring. 

What’s on Tap?  

We often hear that change in healthcare happens slower than other industries. This may be true for reimbursement reform, culture change, academic medicine, etc.  But budget cuts, mergers and acquisitions, and even new technology can create an immediate and abrupt change. A health system that learns quickly and applies the findings will survive rapid changes and accelerate the rate and quality of long term change. 

Join us at Tap into TechSpring, Thursday November 9th from 5-8pm as we explore ways to rapidly learn and apply research and innovation in order to stand out as a leading “Learning Health System”.

  • Paul Visintainer, Director, Scientific Integrity and Analytics, and Director of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Baystate has over 30 years in medical research. He will share how technology advances, like predictive analytics, are blurring the lines between bench and bedside.
  • Mihaela S. Stefan, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Hospitalist and Clinician Investigator at Baystate Institute for Healthcare Delivery and Population Science has a research focus on assessing quality and outcomes of care for patients hospitalized with common medical conditions and implementing interventions to translate evidence into routine practice.

  • Katie Devlin, Innovation Delivery Manager at TechSpring, will share how close collaboration between health systems and technology partners can accelerate 'the learning'.

We are a vibrant innovation community of technologists and healthcare professionals working together to solve the very real challenges in healthcare today. We do this over food, beer and good cheer.
