Total cost of care measures quality, cost and customer experience and serves as a critical metric in value-based care. During the last three years, SWHR network providers maintained an average annual increase to one-quarter of the regional average. This led to our network hospitals having a 7% higher quality scores than other hospitals and health systems in the region (CMS and USNR). While ranking high in quality scores, our accountable care organization also provided care to the most complex patient base in the state at competitive rates, according to several health plans. In conclusion, by connecting care from preventive and primary to post-acute and home care, SWHR has innovated care delivery to evidence-based practices that improve outcomes at a lower cost.

What are the most advanced strategies these days around care management for patients with chronic conditions? This panel will explore what the leaders of the most pioneering patient care organizations are doing to reimagine care management aimed at population health management. Find out what the biggest learnings have been so far, and where this critical area is headed.
Payers and providers are moving forward to collaborate around population health management, through the integration of care management processes, the sharing of clinical and claims data, and the development of value-based contracting that incents physicians and others to do the best they can to improve the health status of covered populations. Find out what the latest developments and learnings have been.

Background: Successful innovation requires combinations of resources, such as new processes and collaborations among industry partners, technology developers, health care leaders, clinicians, and patients. With this in mind we developed a novel University System wide and cross industry collaborative Biodesign Innovation Program. Texas Biodesign includes the University of Texas (UT) System and external industry partners focused on identifying areas of opportunity, facilitating device and technology development, and accelerating implementation of new therapies for our patients. 

Methods: Stakeholders from MD Anderson, UT, and NASA agreed upon the conceptual framework, created a syllabus, identified mentors, interviewed applicants, and assigned teams. The initial cohort included three teams (each team of four consisted of a clinician from MD Anderson Cancer Center, PhD students and faculty from the UT Cockrell School of Engineering, MBA students from the UT McCombs School of Business, and support from the Texas Innovation Center and Texas Venture Labs) and cross-industry participation with NASA. The intensive program was seven weeks long and included didactic coursework as well as each team meeting weekly with mentors who are experienced entrepreneurs and alumni of the Stanford Biodesign Fellowship. Due to COVID-19 imposed visitor restrictions, the workshop was conducted virtually and clinical vignettes were used in lieu of in person clinical observations.
 
Results: Texas Biodesign was conceived, created, and implemented in less than three months. The three teams generated more than 200 needs statements which were further filtered to generate one lead concept per team. Two of the three teams have continued to innovate resulting in three clinical solutions in various stages of development. The collaborations and relationships between university system and industry partners provides innovators the full range of resources and expertise necessary to successfully innovate, validate, and commercialize new ideas. 

Conclusion: Texas Biodesign established a successful, first of its kind collaboration across the UT system. This novel program also provides the opportunity for an expansion of industry partners to put more resources and expertise into the hands of the Biodesign Fellows. This program has laid the foundation for intersecting connections across medicine, engineering, business, and industry to more effectively and efficiently address critical healthcare needs as it will identify, invent, design, develop, and commercialize life-enhancing and life-saving devices and technology.

Panel Discussion


EMR usability, as well as the efficiencies of a well-built EMR, are hugely important for many stakeholders across all healthcare delivery organizations. Join our panelists to discuss how they build a culture of partnership between physician and clinician users, IT personnel, and other stakeholders to drive a quality EMR experience, increase EMR engagement, and help users focus on opportunities for EMR success in their organizations. Discussion topics include:

  • How they continually adapt the EMR to meet the changing needs of the organization and users
  • How to develop a non-bureaucratic governance structure that allows for changes to be made quickly to the EMR
  • How they build a culture of sharing and continuing education to support mastery of the EMR by all users
  • How they improve EHR satisfaction and reduce EHR-associated burnout among clinicians
  • How they built or are building a quality EMR – cutting through the hype and choosing a vendor that works for their organization, based on best practices and feedback from the users
