GETTYSBURG, Pa., Sept. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As fee-for-service contracts are replaced by reimbursement with performance bonuses (and penalties), gainsharing, case rates, and health home and medical home capitated arrangements, managers need new tools to succeed. Electronic health record (EHR) data and EHR functionality are key tools — but not enough — to be successful in the new world of value-based contracting which require population based performance tracking and reporting. Analytic tools that make sense of that EHR data and leverage other available data sources for actionable information to managers are required.
The ability to participate in population health management will be a core competency of provider organizations in this post fee-for-service environment. And timely access to both population based and consumer specific information is key to building this competency in any organization.
During this 90-minute executive web briefing, our faculty will provide an update on the trends in performance-based contracting and risk sharing in health and human services — and how these trends are requiring provider organizations to embrace population health management while also providing direct consumer care. You will also learn the additional and essential capabilities, beyond EHR functionality, needed for financial success with pay-for-performance (P4P) and risk-based contracts. Finally, our faculty will present three case studies of provider organizations at the cutting edge of population health management and how they used enhanced analytic tools to turn disparate data sources — clinical and administrative — into decision making gold. These case studies include:
- A tool for case management decision support for consumers with diabetes and diabetic precursors– and using these tools to maximize metabolic screening performance
- A tool for payer/provider data sharing that proactively identifies gaps in consumer care and consumer engagement
- A system to proactively identify consumers at risk for emergency room visits — and facilitate early intervention to prevent hospitalizations
Join us on October 7 at 2:00pm EST to hear Carol Duncan Clayton, Ph.D., chief executive officer of Care Management Technologies and Monica E. Oss, chief executive officer of OPEN MINDS discuss the three ways to leverage and extend your EHR capabilities to manage P4P and risk contracts. And don't miss an exclusive question and answer session at the conclusion of this event, where our experts will answer live questions from the audience and share their insights on population health management and the essential capabilities needed for financial success.
