Here are our Top 5 takeaways from this year's conference. How do yours compare?

 
1.
When assessing IT security readiness, many organizations discover that lack of employee awareness is one of the most significant and challenging threats to data integrity. Sophisticated technology will not protect your data if your workforce is not prepared to identify and intercept the deceptive techniques that hackers use to gain access to your systems.
 
2.
Great ideas spread at ANI on a national level, inspiring attendees to co-create solutions to their common challenges. Actionable ideas arise when you talk with the person next to you at a session or listen to what others are doing and seeing in their region.
 
3.
The proposed MACRA rules overhaul physician payment and will require planning over multiple years. The methodology is complex in comparison to current models we have operated under. Keep an eye out for final rules in late October or early November.
 
4.
IT risk for organizations is significant. The attacks have been monetized with successful ransomware, the cost of a breach per record in healthcare is significant, and organizations have not done enough to assess the risk and prepare their response plans.
 
5.
A key takeaway came from Monday’s keynote speaker, Eric Topol, MD. It’s time to embrace technologies that empower the consumer to take ownership of their personal patient data. New Hampshire is the only state in the nation where patients own their medical record.
