Quality Data: Three steps to simplify data governance, enable interoperability, and enhance your reporting and analytics

Sponsored by
Wolters Kluwer

With healthcare spending reaching an all-time high, healthcare organizations are turning toward consolidation to cut costs, generate new revenue streams, and promote efficiencies.

Health leaders are expected to abide by the latest regulatory requirements, report accurate system-wide metrics for quality measures, and produce reliable data analytics, all while addressing organizational initiatives and lessening clinician administrative burden.

At the core of these initiatives is quality data. Yet data alone presents its own unique set of challenges. Not only is it being collected in a variety of ways, through EHRs, patient-generated data, and unstructured notes, but it also comes in multiple formats, such as clinical, claims, and reference data. Examples of data include patient problem lists, laboratory results, medications, allergies, clinical notes, and insurance related diagnosis and procedures.

Learn how you can ensure your organization is utilizing the most accurate and reliable data needed to achieve its goals.

In this session you will learn about:

  • Common challenges health leaders experience due to poor clinical and claims data quality
  • Essential ingredients needed for achieving high data quality
  • What to look for in a technology vendor to ensure your needs are met
  • The innovation and progress such as improved analytics related to regulations and clinical outcomes you can look forward to with a foundation of quality data

Join us on Wednesday, April 3rd at 1 pm ET, to learn why your data quality is at the core of your organizational initiatives, and how you can leverage data experts to help you get there!

Terumo Business Edge

The material presented in this webinar focuses on helping hospital leaders to better understand the changing dynamics in the cardiac cath lab and how evolving a more operational efficient care pathway with a focus on same day discharge of your elective procedural population can have signficant cost benefits as well as improved patient experience and quality.

With the growing demand on acute care facilities to manage costs and declining reimbursements, understanding the economic and clinical perspectives of care pathways that are void of care variation are essential. Join us on Wednesday, March 20th at 1 pm ET as our speakers present compelling data and experience of the financial and patient care aspects of this subject matter.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will have a firm understanding of the cost savings to the hospital that deploys a same day discharge program as part of their cardiac cath lab process
  • Peer reviewed data supports the economics and clinical benefits of same day discharge
  • Care pathways devoid of excessive care variation deliver better quality and patient experiences and save money, win-win-win

Nuance

To take their CDI program to the next level, Halifax Health is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to engage physicians with guidance at the point of care, and to prioritize CDS team focus on patient encounters with the greatest opportunities for documentation improvement.

Please join us on Tuesday, March 12th at 1 pm ET, as speakers will present the plan for advancing the CDI program with AI, use of analytics to drive program improvements and quantify the clinical and financial outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Engage physicians in higher quality documentation with guidance at the point of care
  • Understand how to advance the use of the EHR with AI solutions to evaluate patient medical records and prioritize cases with the greatest opportunities for documentation improvement.
  • Improve productivity of CDI teams by uncovering opportunities to investigate more complex diagnoses while expanding the ability to cover more cases.
  • Incorporate advanced analytical insights into CDI team program performance.

 

The Compliance Conundrum: Why Simplifying Internal Policies Breeds Success

Sponsored by
Greeley

Tasked with the need to comply with a vast body of changing regulations and the ever-shifting payer requirements for maximum reimbursement, hospitals have implemented a heavy load of clinical and operational policies in the name of compliance. As a result, clinicians are burdened with an enormous number of unnecessary administrative tasks.

Often internal ‘fixes’ or corrective action plans are designed because “regulations require it” often typically exacerbates this challenge. These expectations, however well intended, actually place healthcare organizations at greater regulatory risk, reduce physician, nurse and patient satisfaction and negatively impact quality and safety.

Join Steven W. Bryant, President and CEO of The Greeley Company on Thursday, December 13th at 1 pm ET, as he discusses the key to getting clinicians back to critical thinking at the bedside and how simplifying expectations can get rid of unnecessary complexities in the documentation process.

Learning Objectives:

  • Mitigate physician and clinician burnout while also complying with CMS conditions of participation with federal and state accreditation and internal policies.  
  • Understand why regulations must align with a hospital's documentation processes, policies and clinician workflows.
  • Free up nurses from unnecessary administrative tasks to think critically
  • Increase patient and staff satisfaction score

Practical Use Cases for AI & Machine Learning in Health Care Organizations

Sponsored by
InterSystems

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are effective tools to manage healthcare cost and quality, but how do they apply to your organization? Join HBI Solutions, a strategic partner to healthcare organizations worldwide, to explore three practical use cases for AI and machine learning in organizations like yours.

During this live webinar on Thursday, December 6th at 3 pm ET, attendees will learn why custom machine learning out-performs commonly used risk screening tools in predicting costs, future events or conditions. Learn how AI/ML provides the necessary insights to manage and reduce risks in acute care episodes, transitions in care, and population health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify how inclusion of social determinants of health improves predictive models.
  • See practical use cases that apply AI/ML in acute risk, transitions of care risk and risk management in alternative payment models.
  • Understand why AI with machine learning is superior to other standard, static algorithms or risk screening tools.
