Cherie Pardue, Deputy CIO at Adventist, stressed the importance of getting stakeholder buy-in.
"One of the things we've worked on is educating people," Pardue said. Adventist, Pardue said, has created an algorithm that alerts providers to patients at risk for sepsis. It's also developed a risk stratification score for readmissions within its accountable care organization. The latter project brought on another lesson.

Richard Ong and Cherie Pardue
Ong and Cherie Pardue, Deputy CIO at Adventist Healthcare, a system based in Gaithersburg, Md., talked about the role that partnerships play in this evolution. "It's the exchange of data that brings us all together," Pardue said to LEAD attendees. "So you never know who you will have to exchange data with, so from that perspective, I look at everyone as a potential partner." Ong and Pardue gave several examples of non-traditional partnerships that brought value to their respective organizations. Ong and Pardue did talk about the more traditional partnerships that are encompassing healthcare organizations nowadays. The aim of it all, as both Ong and Pardue said, is to provide patient-centered care.
