Workgroup: Value & Reimbursement

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The group decided three criteria were needed to accelerate the development of a universal value-based care system:

  • Evidence-based criteria applied in a clinical workflow - A set of “must-haves” that determine the appropriate treatment (procedures, medical devices, services, medications, etc.) for a patient
  • Harmonization of payer outcome measures - An outcome measure (such as mortality, readmission rates, and patient experience) that is standardized, represents a change in health status of an individual, and recorded after a provider...

Webinar: Data Needs for Successful Value-based Care Outcomes

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Emerging value-based payment (VBP) models are critically important in meeting future needs for improved quality and cost of healthcare. This national movement away from fee-for-service (FFS) to VBP is a massive undertaking and the transition can be made more difficult when payment reform efforts occur as add-ons to traditional FFS contracts. One of the operational challenges inherent in the transition to VBP is appropriate use of clinical and administrative data. Guest speaker, Dr. Steven Waldren, is the Director of the AAFP's Alliance for eHealth Innovation. Dr. Waldren will discuss the...

Webinar: Incorporating Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Data for Holistic Care Delivery and Population Health Outcomes

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

This webinar addresses the use of behavioral health and substance abuse data to facilitate more connected and personalized care for at-risk populations.  Due to strict federal guidelines, behavioral health and substance abuse data have historically been excluded from health data exchanges.

Data Access and Privacy Committee

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

Privacy issues and cybersecurity threats can wreak havoc among healthcare organizations. Malicious agents now seek patient data as frequently as financial information, and the value of a medical record far exceeds that of a stolen credit card. Today, the question facing most security officers is no longer whether a breach will occur, but rather when it will happen and what should be done to mitigate the damage. This new reality necessitates innovative approaches to managing risk and protecting data.

With nearly 6 in 10 hospitals using at least a basic electronic health record, the...

Webinar: Social Determinants: Alternative Drivers of Healthcare

02:00 PM - 03:00 PM

The health care industry has customarily thought about health care data and individual responsibility as primary influencers of a person’s health outcomes. Organizations are now recognizing that alternative drivers, such as economic status, social factors and physical environment are also key influencers in health outcomes. But, how should organizations leverage social determinants in managing populations? How do they integrate these insights into existing processes to help providers make more informed decisions at an individual and population level?

Social determinants of health...

However, Price and others have also voiced concerns over the burden MACRA’s Quality Payment Program places on providers and questioned some of the CMS Innovation Center’s alternative payment model initiatives that now overlap with MACRA. For this reason, as we move...

Advancing Privacy and Security Practices through Information Governance

09:00 PM - 09:00 PM

The year of the healthcare hack begins anew as ransomware, cyber threats, and security incidents continue. Healthcare leaders must not only understand the threats but be able to look beyond current practices to protect our information assets.
