  Featured Event: 20201 IEEE Healthcare Summit
: Integrating BHI & AI to Combat Pandemics

IHS Portal imageOn 12 March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 (COronaVIrus Disease 2019)
outbreak a pandemic. COVID-19 has spread to more than 200 countries, territories, and international conveyances,
infected more than 220 million people, and taken more than 4.5 million lives globally.

The first annual IEEE Healthcare Summit will be a virtual event held on 4-7 October 2021. This event aims to report
progress made in the fight against COVID-19, and in better preparations for future pandemics, through the
integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods and tools with Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI).

The WAMIII Virtual Talk Series • July - 20 October 2021

The IEEE Global Wearables and Medical IoT Interoperability & Intelligence (WAMIII) Program launched The WAMIII Virtual Talk Series.
This series continues to convene and educate the global community of technologists, clinicians, healthcare professionals, regulatory, patient advocates, bio/pharma professionals, and many other stakeholder who have a common interest in developing solutions around the safe, responsible, and validated use of connected wireless medical devices in, on, and around us.

The WAMIII Virtual Talk Series is a critical educational and outreach program under the Clinical Health Workstream of the IEEE SA Healthcare and Life Science Practice.

14 September 2021: Solving Health Tech Challenges Lies with Females: Meet the Women Leading Global Standards Development

SA WomenWAM91421Women are leading the way in every aspect of the digital health tech transformation from founders of start-ups, CEOs of major organizations or solving everyday complex challenges with the adoption and use of health technologies. Four (4) of IEEE SA's most progressive standards working groups are led by committed, talented and knowledgeable women tackling one of the world’s largest most complex healthcare challenges. This technical virtual session will get into the detail of the challenges and progress in solving the interoperability challenge as it relates to wearables, clinical IoTs and EHRs to support the foundation for innovating the future of healthcare.

This session is more than justifying why women are suited to lead the future of digital health tech and technical standards development. You will hear the challenges they and their teams are facing in addressing a critical piece in the puzzle impeding trust, security and validation in our digital healthcare system.

5 October 2021: Advancing Interoperability to Improve Transparency and Efficiency in the Health System

The next upcoming session on 5 October 2021, Dr. Mary G. Greene will provide an overview of work the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is doing to create efficiencies in the health system and make clinical and administrative data accessible to patients, providers, and other stakeholders. Topics include Application Program Interfaces (APIs), requirements library, prior authorization, digital quality measures, care coordination, and health equity.
