    The next generation of population health management—a linchpin of healthcare reform—will require much more than remote measures of health trends. Now, integrated programs are needed that will improve community health and provide measurable statistical results and reduce healthcare costs. Success will depend on a shift in focus from the clinic to the population at large, and adapting provider practices, data collection and analysis. At this sessios panelists wille explore the integration of clinical, claims as well as external data including socio-economic data, access to critical support services and patient generated data and the ability to analyze this data and to make it actionable across the accountable care enterprise to optimize this new public health environment.

    Meet the Innovators Keynote and Introduction: Beyond Interoperability: A Platform for Executable Health Knowledge

    Brad Ryan, Chief Commerce Officer Apervita

    Knowledge silos continue to obstruct progress in healthcare. The current solutions for delivering analytic-based insights, confined within institutions or single user interfaces, are sorely lacking; they are expensive, time consuming, not scalable, and not portable. What if health analytics & data could exist freely and flexibly such that they are portable and executable in any system? Such an architecture would enable new participants, business models, and solution types that never existed before, opening the door for orders of magnitude more (and more sophisticated) analytics & data than is feasible in the current model at scale.


    In this session Apervita will discuss an approach to deliver this vision.

    Paul Buehrens, Medical DirectorEvergreenHealth Partners
    Anil Keswani, Corporate Vice President of Ambulatory Care and Population Health Management, Scripps Health


    The continuum of care concept has required the integration of raw data at every stage of a patient’s healthcare, from office visits to hospitalizations, from medications to palliative end-of-life care. Getting meaningful analytics means integrating databases from clinics, laboratories, and payor records as well as hospital quality data, disease registries and public access rates. But without the right tools and structures, this process can be very labor intensive. Find out how states have developed IT infrastructures that can provide a window of care at every step.

    Analytics to Action: Applying Analytics to Improve Patient Health

    Panel Leader/Moderator: Allen Kamer, Chief Commercial Officer, Optum Analytics
    Anil Keswani, Corporate Vice President of Ambulatory Care and Population Health Management, Scripps Health

    In today’s world of value-based reimbursement, taking action based on data analytics has become a necessity. Payers are pushing patient risk onto providers’ proverbial shoulders, and the only way to manage that risk is to apply advanced analytics toward interventions.
    Dr. Anil Keswani, Corporate VP of Ambulatory Care and Population Health Management, at Scripps Health will share Scripps’ experience using analytic tools to determine the populations that need intervention, enroll populations into care management programs, identify barriers to care and compliance and track and manage care management interventions.

    Track 2
    Anatomy of An ACO Platform Selection

    David DiGirolamo, VP Healthcare IT and Informatics, Partners in Care Corp.

    This session will outline tools and methods for organizations’ to effectively assess the ACO IT Marketplace. Current and planned offerings are plentiful, but mirror this amorphous, chaotic and rapidly evolving space. The wide variety of stakeholders, new market entrants and desire to conquer a new frontier have created both confusion and complexity. Even sizing the market is difficult with nearly 170 solutions (that we can count) and over 50 Mergers and Acquisitions in the last few years. Our intent is to define the ACO IT Marketplace, provide a common vocabulary and establish the key components needed to assemble a broad Solution. This discussion will also expose myths and reveal hidden realities.

    Important questions to explore include:

    What can we expect from established players?
    How will the Market transform over the next 12 – 36 months?
    What key ingredients are missing from broad ACO Solutions and why?
    What mission critical areas are sometimes overlooked?
    What comes first RFP or Demo?

    Lynn Barr, Chief Transformation Officer, Natiuonal Rural ACO
    Patricia Schou, Execeutive Director, Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network


    Rural health practices face unique challenges: bridging distances between patients and providers, having enough patients to meet Medicare

    minimums, and accessing capital for the infrastructure to build and maintain ACOs. But a rural ACO can allow resource sharing to invest in IT

    structures and clinical improvements. Learn how new ACO models, specifically tailored to rural areas, are helping remote providers improve

    clinical outcomes, reduce costs and overall reap the benefits of reform.

    Track 2
    Optimizing Chronic Condition Management for Your At Risk Populations

    Panel Leader/Moderator: Ron Ritchey, CMO, EQ Health Solutions
    Robert Janett, Medical Director, Mount Auburn College IPA
    Maria Han, Medical Director, Population Health, University of Michigan Health System

    Patients with multiple chronic conditions present higher costs of treatment, prevention, more avoidable hospitalizations and significant challenges

    to provider intervention. Determining how to use data to risk stratify populations and to identify valuable community resources are critical in order

    to better manage these populations, and make patient visits and prevention/treatment programs more effective. At this session, we’ll review

    success stories/best practice and some challenges to optimization that your colleagues have experienced.

    James Mault, MD, FACS, Chief Medical Officer and VP, Qualcomm Life
    Brandon Tudor, AVP, Access & Administrative Services, MedStar National Rehabilitation Network
    Russ Johannesson COO, Sharecare


    With a growth rate of 34 percent a year and an estimated 187 wearable, health-related devices in circulation by 2020, mHealth and wearable health technology are being explored as a significant value add to the doctor-patient relationship. But the technology remains in fledgling stage—fitness and health tracking features are still often clumsy, and lack consistency. Meanwhile, connected medical homes are catching on as effective ways to ease communications between providers and patients, monitor patient medical data (and manage that data in the clinic), and reduce the need for costly office visits. Does this mean that mHealth and Connected Medical Homes could form a perfect union? Or will interest in wearables fade away? Keep up on the latest trends in this valuable session.

    Renae Pemberton, ACO Program Director, Centura Health
    Michael Bodenstab, VP Healthcare Solutions, MedHelp<


    The next phase of healthcare is upon us and as reforms continue throughout the country, an opportunity now exists to transform and integrate data into practical, meaningful and actionable items. Healthcare is shifting from a wholesale to a consumer driven experience thanks in part to the availability of information otherwise known as "big data”. This transformation, however, can only be accomplished if we can deliver more accountable and better-coordinated care seamlessly regardless of the technology architecture or IT solutions employed. Things like social media are becoming ever relevant in this field; in order to successfully engage patients to take control of their own health. This panel will discuss the collection and analysis of healthcare data to support population health, clinical workflow and patient engagement and will discuss healthcare sustainability delivered as an integrated clinical, operational and financial data stream that ultimately supports quality healthcare.

    Panel Leader/Moderator: Charles Boicey, Enterprise Analytics Architect, Stony Brook Medicine Information Technology
    Mark Cronin, Chief Operating Officer, Accountable Health Partners
    Jonathan Birnberg, Associate Medical Director, Clinical Analytics, NorthShore University HealthSystem


    Managing the health of large populations will require massive amounts of data and the ability to use that data to determine the right mix of technical, human and infrastructure resources. Where and what are the risks in your community? Do you need to create new resources, expand existing ones, or phase others out? In this session, we’ll look at how savvy data integration and reporting can help sort out priorities, ultimately resulting in better health for your population.
