As the purchasers and payers of healthcare are demanding that patient care organizations deliver more cost-effective and higher-quality care than ever before, and consumers begin to demand better patient and family experiences, CIOs, CMIOs, CTOs, and other health IT leaders are joining together with other senior patient care organization leaders to rethink how care will be delivered in the future—and they’re focusing on digital health as a broad frame for their ambitions. Find out how nationally recognized leaders are reframing what technology and patient care delivery will look like—and are moving towards a new vision of care delivery.


9:35 AM - 9:50 AM

In the wake of the recent Change Healthcare cyberattack and the alarming rise in Account Takeover (ATO) incidents, it is more crucial than ever for healthcare leaders to bolster their cybersecurity strategies. The healthcare industry remains the top target for cyberattacks, underscoring the urgent need for advanced security measures. Passwordless authentication is finally beginning to see broad implementation, with passkeys providing a strong boost in user awareness and adoption over the past year. According to a recent FIDO Alliance survey, more than half of respondents reported setting up a passkey. However, today’s solutions still have room for innovation: stronger security, better experiences, and more user control over data.

What if we could revolutionize the entire paradigm? Not just for account login, but for registration and robust protection against AI-driven authentication threats like voice and video deep fakes? Enter decentralized identity (DCI). Among its many promising applications in the identity landscape, DCI’s verifiable credentials hold immense potential to elevate passwordless authentication to new heights. Join this session to discover how the right blend of existing and emerging technologies can transform this vision into reality, providing healthcare organizations with the tools they need to defend against increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.
