Sunday, Feb. 13, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Even after nearly 20 years of development and promotions, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) has failed to live up to its promises. This session explores why PKI has failed and what approach will likely succeed in the future.

"PHI in Email: Protecting the Patient's Privacy"
Sunday, Feb. 13, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Current administrative email policies are insufficient in protecting individually identifiable health information. This session discusses how to safeguard patient's health information in email with content scanning.

Product Pavilions on the exhibit floor will showcase innovative healthcare IT solutions. ZixCorp will present in the Patient Safety Theater.

"e-Prescribing Benefits from the Physician's Point of View"
Monday, Feb. 14, 3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Presented by Daniel Sands and Salvatore Volpe
