Creating a Cost Effective Cardiac Cath Lab Program
Terumo Business Edge
February 20, 2019
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.
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
Using AI Powered Guidance to Engage Physicians and Streamline CDI Program Effectiveness

The Compliance Conundrum: Why Simplifying Internal Policies Breeds Success
November 19, 2018
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.
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
Practical Use Cases for AI & Machine Learning in Health Care Organizations
November 14, 2018
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.
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.
A New World Order: Your Pharmacy—the Secret to Margin Relief?
October 24, 2018
Clinician efficiency and medication management are two key areas of focus for hospitals to survive the no-end-in-sight margin compression nationally, according to a Health Care Advisory Board 2017 report. Downward pressures include changing reimbursement models, shifting payer mix, and rising expenses, particularly around drug costs, which have consistently grown by 3-5% a year.
If productivity or reduced cost is not achieved, the share of hospitals with negative profit margins will increase to 60% by 2025, according to a 2016 Congressional Budget report.
Drawing on the expertise of pharmacy teams, who typically fly under the radar, forward-looking hospitals have at their fingertips an important lever to control inpatient drug costs and improve clinical efficiencies.
By promoting pharmacist patient-care oversight across a single site or system, hospitals can assure the right drug is prescribed, to the right patient, at the right time to optimize medication usage and overall spending, while reducing variations in care.
Sign-up for this live webinar on October 24th at 1pm ET to learn how targeted, strategic efforts that leverage the skill sets of pharmacy teams—as well as the power of surveillance technology—can maximize those clinical efficiencies critical to continuously improve the health of patients, outcomes and your hospitals’ bottom line.
