What are the leaders of healthcare delivery organizations and payer organizations learning as they move forward into the world of value-based healthcare delivery and payment? Join our panelists as they sit down with Editor-in-Chief Mark Hagland to talk about the learnings taking place in their alternative payment model programs, and how they and their colleagues are strategically leveraging healthcare IT to accomplish their goals.

It is imperative today for healthcare organizations to derive value from their data and make more meaningful decisions that will move the needle on costs, efficiency, and most importantly, patient outcomes. However, many hospitals and health systems are ill-equipped to do so and are not optimally using their investments in analytics and visualization, as the data they are supposed to use to make decisions is untrustworthy.

In this presentation, Dimensional Insight, the seven-time Best in KLAS winner in healthcare business intelligence and analytics, will talk about why a foundation built on data trust is critical for healthcare organizations that want to make more data-driven decisions.

St. Joseph's Health (SJH), based in Paterson, N.J., provides care to a largely underserved population with significant challenges in the area of social determinants of health (SDOH). In 2018, SJH created a physician\revenue cycle collaborative to defragment the organization’s efforts across the system and develop a true clinically-integrated revenue cycle. 

Attend this session to learn how a team of about 20 vice presidents, physician leaders, directors and managers representing medicine, finance, IT, compliance, HIM, care management and operations (acute and ambulatory)—began meeting weekly, and by the end of 2019 attributed to $20 million in increased revenue: recoveries from concurrent denials of nearly $14.5 million (net receivables) in 2019; a nearly 40 percent increase in observation discharges (driving a decrease in denials) in 2019, compared with 2018; a 6 percent increase in system-wide CMI from 2017 to 2019; average daily charges from professional fees (acute and ambulatory) increased to $700,000 a day at the end of 2019 from $558,00 average in 2018.; and a highly collaborative and experienced team gearing up for more opportunities in 2020.

Panel Discussion

 

The CIO, CNIO and CMIO, each with their unique role and responsibilities, form a triad that is essential to meeting critical clinical organizational priorities. Join our panelists as they discuss how they work together and separately in their organizations to deliver a quality experience for patients and clinicians. Discussion topics for this panel will include how each of these roles are changing and evolving to meet the needs of the modern healthcare environment.

The signs of disruption in the healthcare industry are everywhere: Massive mergers. Major employers test driving new data-driven employee-based population health and preventive care programs. A major online retailer acquiring a pharmacy benefits administrator. 
 
It’s an exciting and transformational time for the healthcare market. Patients can benefit from better information about health choices. Physicians can be more confident about treatment plans with greater visibility into outcomes. Even the potential to realize the promise of personalized medicine and targeted therapies without risking patient privacy. 
 
Faced with all of the challenges and complexities of today’s healthcare environment, how can you accomplish your mission? 
 
One theme is clear: Data is the future of healthcare. During this session, I’ll help you understand: 
 

  • How data is the driving force underlying emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, (AI); analytics and applications in the cloud
  • Why you must manage data as a strategic, enterprise asset to improve decision-making speed and accuracy, and promote more seamless change management 
  • What the five key areas are that are critical for successful data management within your organization

Panel Discussion

 

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

  • Developing a non-bureaucratic governance structure that allows for changes to be made quickly to the EMR when needed
  • How they developed initial training programs, recognizing that the quality and duration of initial training are the top predictors of an individual’s EMR success
  • Building a culture of sharing, continuing education to support mastery of the EMR and helping clinicians become superusers by training them not only to successfully get data into the EMR but also to efficiently get data out of the EMR
  • Building a quality EMR – cutting through the hype and choosing a vendor that work for their organization, based on best practices and feedback from the users

Studies have shown that it typically takes 17 years for the results of a randomized controlled trial to reach clinical practice, if it makes it there at all. The gap between what we know will improve health care and what is taken up in practice remains an important obstacle to improving the healthcare system and patients’ health. Implementation strategies to integrate evidence into practice settings where patients and clinicians can use it to actively inform decisions, as well as dissemination activities to enhance awareness of relevant information, are essential routes to improving health care and health outcomes.
