Is This the end of Population Health? What AI can do to Address Socioeconomic Determinants of Health

Sponsored by

As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) and recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), social determinants of health (SDH) are the conditions in which people live, work, play, and age. SDH affect a wide range of health-related outcomes such as chronic conditions, preventable hospitalizations, morbidity, and mortality. But current analyses, predictive models, and prevention initiatives focus on addressing SDH at the population or zip code level thereby missing an individual patient’s needs.

During this session on September 12th at 1pm ET, Dr. John Showalter, Chief Product Officer for Jvion, will discuss new AI approaches to identifying individual clinical risk based on SDH data that then leads to more specific and tailored interventions. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:

  • Define AI and its relevance for community-based risk predictions and interventions
  • List the shortcomings of current analytic approaches to population health management
  • Describe the data required to power an AI-enabled Socioeconomic Determinants of Health (SDH) solution
  • Identify potential areas of application for an SDH solution within their own organization

Resuscitation Competence: An Algorithm for Saving Lives in Your Hospital

Sponsored by
American Heart Association

Many healthcare providers believe that because they have a CPR course completion card, they’re competent to perform quality CPR. However, studies prove that with traditional resuscitation training just once every two years, the psychomotor skills required to administer high-quality CPR significantly decay in as little as three months after training and continue to decline until the next training event. Most healthcare providers are not conscious of this skills decay and believe they perform high-quality CPR. Merely good CPR is not good enough to save lives.

High-quality CPR is the single highest determinant of survival from cardiac arrest. Join this webinar on September 10th at 1pm ET when Brian Eigel, Ph.D., COO of RQI Partners and former SVP of Emergency Cardiovascular Care Programs at the American Heart Association, will provide hospitals with a roadmap to implement a cost-effective, low-dose, high-frequency program that verifies CPR competence and achieves the new standard of care.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to implement a program that verifies CPR competence to ensure that every cardiac arrest patient receives high-quality CPR every time

  • Recognition of the important elements of effective resuscitation science and an efficient resuscitation education program that achieve lifesaving competence in high-quality CPR

  • Steps to achieve and maintain organization-wide confidence and competence in high-quality CPR skills

It’s an Emergency! The Sudden Focus on Emergency Department Visit Levels (via HCPro)

Sponsored by

Are you finding it a challenge to keep your ED visit levels in line?  Is it leading to down coding or denials?

With the focus on reforming health care it is no surprise that the emergency department is under intense scrutiny. Hospitals face the difficulty of responding to multiple challenges including price transparency, quality of care, and evolving payer policies, all while being tasked with making care more affordable.

As a result, department level charging consistently rises to the top of the list when evaluating the cost of outpatient care.  Consistent and accurate charging in the ED can reduce your risk potential and streamline the path to improved financial reimbursement in the Emergency Department.

Join us Tuesday, August 13th at 1 pm ET for this webinar to learn:

  • What is causing the increased scrutiny on ED visit levels
  • 3 best practices for accurate and defensible ED reimbursement
  • Uncovering opportunity in your ED

Many organizations neglect to focus on charge capture processes because they are typically decentralized across organizations and considered a lower administrative function. But let’s face it -- overlooking missed, incorrect, and inconsistent charges is akin to leaving money on the table.

Organizations with formal charge-capture programs report a significant positive impact on the bottom line. Whether you have a charge capture program, or are considering implementing one, it is recommended that you always measure progress and revise the program as required to drive appropriate and timely reimbursement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Top 5 things you need to know about charge capture
  • Common obstacles to implementing a successful charge capture program
  • The basic control framework to identify risks, develop controls and enhance key charge capture processes
  • Lessons learned from high-performing charge capture programs
