11:00 CO-PRESENTATION: How Analytics Can Improve Referral Capture Rate and Increase Revenue for Your Organization

Mike HebertMike Hebert, RN, MBA, Senior Director, Care Management, Utilization Management and Geriatrics Care Management, Reliant Medical Group


Jamie LeehyJamie Leehy, Director, Population Health Analytics and Provider Compensation, Reliant Medical Group


In today’s healthcare environment many organizations find themselves operating in a hybrid model of capitated and fee-for-service patient volume. The importance of ensuring patients receive available care within those organizations continues to grow. The challenge is knowing what patients are receiving care within/outside of the organization as to allow for improvement in referral flow patterns. This talk will focus on the importance of capturing referral pattern information and how it has been successfully applied to improve existing workflows, add new patient pathways to be able to receive care from within the organization and optimize the ability to reduce outside referral thus reducing outside medical expense and capitalizing on potential revenue.

11:30 The Journey of a Winning Collaboration between an ACO and an IT Vendor

David SwieskowskiDavid Swieskowski, MD, MBA, Senior Vice President and Chief Accountable Care Officer, Mercy Health Network ACO, Iowa


In value-based driven healthcare, the needs of an organization have become dynamic, and it is crucial they opt for an IT model that is different than a “turnkey solution,”- a “build-operate-reiterate” model that allows: 1. Embedding care coordination in the same platform as that of the data warehouse, 2. Identifying the high-cost drivers, 3. Optimizing the network performance, 4. Measuring the efficiency of all care operations.

Jason PhibbsJason Phibbs, CPXP, Director, Patient Experience, TriHealth


Kate KlefstadKate Klefstad, Digital Health Service Line Manager, The Signal Center for Health Innovation, University of Iowa Health Ventures


Much of today’s patient engagement focuses on regulatory requirements such as reducing readmissions or improving quality scores. How can provider organizations move beyond engagement initiatives driven by compliance and provide more meaningful engagements that achieve ROI but also improve patient outcomes? This short panel will discuss the following:

  • How can providers partner with payers and employers to create less disparate engagement initiatives, especially under value-based contracts?
  • What are the technical and operational challenges to starting these initiatives, as well as aligning them with existing technologies and clinical workflows?
  • What types of engagement initiatives will give providers both financial and clinical ROI?

2:10 Virtual Hospitalist Service: Using Digital Health Tools to Innovate Rural Health Care

Kate KlefstadKate Klefstad, Digital Health Service Line Manager, The Signal Center for Health Innovation, University of Iowa Health Ventures


Rural hospitals are struggling to keep patients in their communities, attract physicians to practice, and stay financially viable. At the same time, large academic medical centers operate at maximum census. The University of Iowa Virtual Hospitalist Service uses digital health tools to bridge the gap, bringing high quality academic care to rural communities, increasing revenue for local hospitals by keeping patients in their communities, and improving patient and provider satisfaction.

Karen HorganKaren Horgan, MBA, President and Co-Founder, VAL Health


11:00 Improving Health through Effective, Sustainable Community Health Worker Programs

Jill FeldsteinJill Feldstein, COO, Penn Center for Community Health Workers, University of Pennsylvania Health System

Though health care professionals at hospitals work tirelessly to help patients get and stay healthy, some patients struggle with real-life challenges, such as job pressures, difficulty paying for medications, hunger or trauma, which can affect their health. To address these issues, University of Pennsylvania Health System researchers partnered with Philadelphia community members and health system leadership to develop IMPaCT—Individualized Management for Patient-Centered Targets—an evidence-based, nationally recognized model for community health worker (CHW) hiring, training, evaluation, and patient care.

11:30 Academic Detailing: Engaging Front-Line Clinicians in Value-Based Care

Michael FischerMichael Fischer, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School

Clinicians seeking to provide value-based care to patients need to understand the framework of value-based care and recognize and implement relevant changes in their practice. Most practitioners, however, were not educated in the concepts of value-based care or comparative effectiveness research and are unlikely to develop such an understanding independently. Academic detailing is a research-proven method of direct outreach education to front-line clinicians that can successfully assess clinicians’ practice patterns and needs, convey new and relevant information, and motivate improvements in both processes of care and patient outcomes. This presentation will explain how organizations seeking to improve population health can include academic detailing as a clinician-directed strategy.

12:00 pm Happy Patients, Lower Costs: Clinical Redesign for Value-Based Care

Erin SmithErin Smith, JD, Director, Public Policy, Government Relations, Cardinal Health

This presentation will present workflow and clinical redesign best practices to help providers revamp their processes for a value-based environment. Providers across the continuum can benefit from improvements to communication, engagement, workflow, and care transitions in order to generate significant cost savings, improve clinical outcomes, and maintain high patient satisfaction levels. These best practices can also help providers understand who “owns” the patient and when, which is a critical and often poorly managed factor to successful interoperability and value-based care. The presenter will share examples of how real providers and their networks are excelling in value-based care, and the benefits of participating early in progressive models (such as MSSP ACOs, which saved $1B in the first three years, and bundled payments).

2:05 CO-PRESENTATION: The Application of Tele-ICU to Ventilator Liberation: A Clinical and Financial Success

Michael RiesMichael Ries, MD, MBA, Medical Director, Critical Care and eICU, Advocate Health Care


Cindy_WelshCindy Welsh, MBA, RN, Vice President, Adult Critical Care and Medical Professional Affairs, Advocate Health Care

An unexpected realization was the application of tele-ICU to population management which enabled a more standardized application of evidence-based medicine across the continuum of critical care patients. It is an example of how technology can be integrated into a clinical process and result in significant clinical and financial benefits. It is not the technology that makes a difference in health care, but how you use the technology that matters.

2:35 ANGELS (Antenatal and Neonatal Guidelines, Education and Learning System): Redesigning Obstetrical Care for Population Health Improvement through Telemedicine

Curtis LoweryCurtis Lowery, MD, Chair, Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS)

Arkansans struggle with rurality, poverty, health disparities, poor healthcare access, and worse-than-average infant mortality. Since 2003, rural Arkansan women have been able to access needed care through ANGELS, a high-risk obstetrical telemedicine program that connects urban specialists with rural providers and patients for clinical consultation and education. This novel population health program utilizes methods such as care coordination and improvements to transitions of care that have contributed to benefits such as an increased rate of deliveries occurring in NICU-equipped hospitals, earlier diagnosis of potential pregnancy and fetal complications, a decrease in postpartum complications in Medicaid deliveries, and improvements in neonatal mortality.

3:05 CO-PRESENTATION: Scaling a High-Touch Diabetes Program for Latinos: Applying Behavioral Economics to Expand Patient and Provider Engagement to Create Community Impact

Karen HorganKaren Horgan, MBA, President and Co-Founder, VAL Health


Janet O’HollarenJanet O’Hollaren, COO, Northwest, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals


A high-touch program was developed to serve the specific needs of the Latino community. The session will address key questions about how the program was scaled including: what are the key culturally sensitive components that drive program success? How can scalable patient engagement solutions be designed to overcome hurdles to participation? What are the opportunities to involve providers in driving behavior change?

3:35 CO-PRESENTATION: How Remote Education and Analytics Combine to Impact Clinical Objectives

Todd SmithTodd Smith, MD, Executive Medical Director and CMIO, East Region, Fairview Health Services/HealthEast

 Bill Lindsay, Executive Vice President, UbiCare

This presentation will share the results of a study by HealthEast Orthopedics and explain how the health system implemented a targeted and automated educational technology to shorten length of stay, reduce day of surgery cancellations, lower readmission rates and increase discharge to home among patients undergoing total joint replacement. A disconnect exists in healthcare from the point of diagnosis at a physician's office to an inpatient stay at the hospital through discharge to home or a rehab facility. Yet, as hospitals and health systems are charged with controlling costs and outcomes throughout the care episode, it is critical that they bridge those gaps by reaching out to patients remotely in a consistent, educational and automated way.
