Roundtable: Lessons Learned from Addressing the COVID-19 Pandemic Through Care Collaboration

Sponsored by
Collective Medical

As healthcare organizations reach COVID-19 peaks and leaders begin to look at post-pandemic healthcare protocol, it becomes clear that the healthcare scene post-COVID will be very different than it was before the pandemic. The decisions care teams make now——and during community re-engagement over the next few months—will be key.

Join us for a roundtable discussion and Q&A session around the lessons learned from COVID-19 on Wednesday, May 20th at 1 pm ET with Jen D'Angelo, Vice President and General Manager of the New Jersey Innovation Institute Healthcare Division, Dr. Ben Zaniello, CMO and infectious disease physician at Collective Medical, Dr. Enrique Enguidanos, ED physician and CEO at Community Based Care Solutions, and Liz Whitworth, Managing Director of the Oregon Health Leadership Council and HIT Commons, for a roundtable discussion and Q&A about the lessons learned from COVID-19.

Learn ways healthcare organizations are effectively adapting to meet the changing healthcare landscape, including:

  • Establishing emergency protocol for remote work and supply chain
  • Increasing interoperability and collaboration between non-traditional care teams
  • Effectively implementing, or improving, telemedicine programs
  • Caring for patients with social determinants of health—even and especially during times of crisis

Each panelist will share proven success strategies for preventing and reducing the impact of crisis situations, lessons learned in the pandemic, the forecast for our healthcare future—and what to do about it. In addition, each will share discovered best practices to connect communities and prevent and protect against future pandemics—including the dreaded "second wave" of COVID-19—and answer questions submitted by attendees in an open roundtable discussion.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the dependencies that tie hospitals, public health organizations, and other care teams together during pandemics
  • Leverage ADT-based collaboration technology to identify, isolate, treat, and trace infection—even once the peak has passed—to prevent additional spread or a "second wave" of infection
  • Learn strategies for identifying and caring for vulnerable populations early-on to help curb the growth of infection in the community

M&A in the Post-COVID-19 Landscape: Where Do We Go From Here?

In a matter of weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has bulldozed the landscape for healthcare providers and made it unrecognizable, raising questions about how care delivery will change in the aftermath. Will hospital consolidation trends continue? What did the pandemic teach us about M&As? What opportunities or disincentives will emerge for hospitals hoping to maintain their independence, or for health systems looking to grow?

Join us on Tuesday, May 26 at 1 p.m. to  2p.m. (EST) for this 60-minute webinar featuring Peggy M. Sanborn, system senior vice president of strategic growth, partnerships, and joint ventures at CommonSpirit Health, who will offer her perspectives about M&As in the aftermath and comment using the 2020 HealthLeaders M&A Survey results. 

Immediate Guidance for Care Teams in Documenting and Coding COVID-19

Sponsored by

At the same time as physicians and nurses are caring for a surging number of COVID-19 patients, they are tasked with evolving guidelines from the AHA and AHIMA on documenting and coding this new type of care.  Care teams are required to accurately capture the level of severity, and all appropriate manifestations of the coronavirus. Documentation must be completed with specificity for reimbursement as well as for the real time reporting and data sharing of the number and type of cases across communities, states, nationally and globally.

Join us for a live webinar on Thursday, May 14th at 1 pm ET as we discuss these topics and to ensure your facility is prepared for future success!

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about the latest AHIMA, CDC, AHA guidelines for ICD-10 coding and reporting
  • Understand specific guidance on recognizing the clinical indicators and risk factors for COVID-19, and associated complications. 
  • Enable clinicians to speak patient notes directly into any EHR in real time from any location and device will be demonstrated with COVID-19 content templates, mobile tools, and apps.
  • Support telehealth with ambient technology  

Master Ongoing Monitoring Requirements for Credentialing

Sponsored by
American Medical Association

Once clinicians are credentialed, they are immediately subject to ongoing monitoring for any potential issues. This function is critical to ensure quality care is continually provided to patients but also to ensure that the organization is in compliance with accreditation and regulatory requirements and not subject to fines or other corrective action. This Webinar on Tuesday, April 28th at 1pm ET will provide a focused review of the CMS, TJC and NCQA credentialing requirements for ongoing monitoring along with implementation tips and leading practices that will enable your organization to achieve compliance.

By the end of the Webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe CMS, TJC and NCQA requirements for ongoing monitoring of credentials and performance
  • Identify appropriate sources to perform ongoing monitoring
  • List methods and tools to document and track compliance

Participants are encouraged to bring their questions for the closing Q&A session.
