2016 Accountable Care & Health IT Strategies Summit

September 8-9, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

The Opportunity

As accountable care models in both the public and private sector continue to proliferate and evolve across the country, there is growing experience and evidence regarding the strategies that need to be employed by integrated health systems, payers and physician groups continue to support a more accountable, better coordinated delivery system.

Aligning Accountable Care, Health IT & Data Analytics

Foundational to the success of a more accountable, better coordinated delivery system is a technology architecture that integrates traditional IT tools that collect and distribute clinical data with new tools that support population health, clinical workflow, patient engagement as well as to integrate clinical, operational and financial data to support performance and risk management. Building on the success of previous meetings the Fifth Annual Accountable Care and HIT Strategies Summit brings together ACOs, Health Systems, Medical Groups and Payers from across the country to discuss the practical steps that need to be taken to implement the clinical, financial and administrative systems required to succeed in an Accountable Care setting.

Who will Attend

Clinical, Business and IT leaders from provider organizations across the country are now mobilizing their organizations to participate in ACOs and/or seeking to be effective partners for payers in value-based purchasing programs.

    Track 1 -How to Manage a Train Wreck
    Maryclair Jorgensen, PA, MHA, MPH, Jorgensen Healthcare Consulting
    Andy Barnes, Product Manager Milliman PRM Analytics

    Every system has them.  Patients who experience huge swings in healthcare demands and incur periodic high cost episodes.  These patients have a history of peaks and troughs in healthcare demands and most providers will tell you that they are doing everything they can.  These peaks are manageable.  A process of advance identification of patients, where early intervention and an emphasis on expanded in-home and ambulatory management, can modify the behavior of these patients.  The result is a positive impact on clinical quality and quality of patient life.

    Track 2 - Health IT for APMs: A Framework for Change
    Craig Behm, Director, Audacious Inquiry
    Genevieve Morris, SME Health Information Exchange, Audacious Inquiry

    Transitioning to alternative payment models requires a robust health IT infrastructure. In order to achieve this, organizations need to reach beyond their institutional walls to support the clinical and business processes, which are required to lower costs and deliver higher quality of care.

    This session will provide a thorough overview of the Health IT Framework, which is intended to describe the current health IT landscape, and a future ideal state that will be necessary to support nationwide alternative payment models. The session will also include insights from CRISP, the Maryland state HIE, around their implementation of capabilities included in the Health IT Framework, and how they are evolving to meet the future needs of alternative payment models.

    Track 3 - Developing an Integration and Analytics Roadmap to Support Real Transformation
    Garri Garrison, RN, CMC, Vice President, Performance Improvement 3M Health Information Systems
    Jason Burke, Business Director Data Informatics, 3M Health Information Systems

    The challenges in health care today are numerous. Declining reimbursement, interoperability of systems, value-based purchasing and population health management are just a few of them. Healthcare organizations are trying to provide better outcomes at lower costs, but how can they focus on the right priorities and know how to drive real change?

    In this session, leaders from 3M will discuss how to use risk-adjusted data to gain insights that are both actionable and clinically-relevant to healthcare leaders.

    Will Snyder, Director Community Health Transformation, Presence Health
    Stephen Brown, Director of Preventative Emergency Medicine, University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System
    Anne Posner, AVP Senior Services, Catholic Charities

    In pursuing an Accountable Health Communities grant from CMMI, Catholic Charities brought together multiple—sometimes competing—healthcare institutions and community organizations to address the social determinants of health on Chicago’s West Side. Through the application process the West Side Collaborative identified the need to build the IT capacity of social service providers and ultimately sustain an environment of data sharing, referral and coordination for vulnerable patients. During this panel, three members of the collaborative will discuss data integration challenges and how they are working to bridge the technology gap between healthcare providers and social service agencies.

    Track 2 - Laying the Foundation for a Sustainable Population Health Management Platform
    ‎‎Katherine Scher, Director of Clinical Integration and Population Health Management, Henry Ford Physician Network
    Matt Hussmann, Director, Population & Practice Management Analytics, Henry Ford Health System

    Henry Ford Health System is comprised of five hospital campuses throughout the Metro Detroit area with care provided by more than 1,100 Henry Ford Medical Group physicians and hundreds of employed physicians. Annually, Henry Ford Health System logs nearly 3.4 million outpatient visits and admits approximately 95,000 patients to its hospitals.

    As the financial landscape of care evolves to a value-based or shared risk model as opposed to volume-based or fee-for-service, there is a pressing need to have transparency into population health data. Still, as recent as five years ago there were no analytical platforms available to provide information on clinical interventions and their direct results on patient health. A two-pronged solution that includes the approach and technology used can solve this problem and lead to the construct of robust clinical programs and collaborative communication benefiting patients and the providers.

    Track 3 - Telehealth: Integrating Remote Patient Consultations into your ACO Strategy
    Samantha Lippolis, Telehealth Director, Centura Health
    Nick Assad, SVP Business Development, CirrusMD

    Telehealth: Integrating Remote Patient Consultations into your ACO Strategy

    The transition towards value based care would seem the perfect opportunity to explore opportunities for remote patient monitoring and consultations through Telehealth platforms in order to improve care coordination, reduce readmissions whilst reducing costs. Providers are evaluating vendor offerings and opportunities for innovation, whilst at the same time the evaluating the business models to integrate Telehealth in a modality that supports their participation in value based care without cannibalizing their fee for service business.
    Join our panel of experts to discuss organization strategies to learn and participate in the discussion on:

    (i) Provider strategies to implement telehealth in a value based world
    (ii) Impact of telehealth on physician and care coordinator workflow to impact ‘at risk populations'
    (iii) Integration challenges for implementing telehealth across multiple ACO networks and multiple EMR platforms
    (iv) Opportunities for innovation and the future landscape for telehealth and remote patient monitoring

    Keynote: Advocate Health’s Journey to an Agile, Data Driven, Patient Focused Care Model

    Tina Esposito, Vice President, Center for Health Information Services, Advocate Health Care
    Bharat Sutariya, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Population Health, Cerner Corporation

    With more than 900,000 attributed patients, Advocate Health Care has fully embraced value based care. The shift to accountable care has necessitated significant partnerships and investments in infrastructure, data, and analytics to understand needs beyond just one clinical stay, visit, or episode. Advocate partnered with Cerner Corporation to develop a true patient centered big data platform that has enabled the ability to provide transparency to gaps in care at a patient level and track broader range of performance metrics at a population level, all agnostic of types of EHR. It allows agility to dig deeper and provide analytics around the prediction and mitigation of the risk for readmission; models that determine the right post-acute care setting following hospitalization; and algorithms to appropriately allocate interventions, like care management, to the right populations. Further, this insight has led to the use of innovative technology driven interventions to better support and engage patients more holistically; all in support of fulfilling the ultimate goal of high quality at a lower cost

    Track 1 - CMS' Next Generation ACO Initiative
    Moderator: Chris Dawe, Principal Transformation, Evolent Health Michael Donahue, SVP EMHS, & CEO, Beacon Health
    Young K. Joo, Vice President of Medicare Accountable Care, Steward Health Care Network
    James Porter, MD, EVP CAO & Deaconess Clinic, Inc., Chief Physician Executive, Deaconess Health System, Inc.

    Medicare continues to aggressively push providers into value-based payment arrangements, including most recently through MACRA, the bipartisan reform effort that rewards physicians in risk-bearing “Alternative Payment Models.” Among the most promising of those models is the Next Generation ACO program, in which CMS is offering ACOs both full financial upside and new sources of information and tools (e.g. prospective attribution, expanded waivers, beneficiary incentives). However, the Next Generation program also requires ACOs to take on levels of risk that have only been found to-date in Medicare Advantage. There are 18 ACOs participating in the Next Generation program today, with at least that number expected to start on January 1.

    The Next Generation ACO panel will include three senior executives from ACOs currently participating in the program, and will include discussion of:
    · What strategic or programmatic aspects of Next Generation led your organization to participate?
    · What capabilities, tools and processes are required to succeed in Next Generation ACO?
    · How do you view the interplay between Next Generation ACO and Medicare Advantage in your market?
    · What improvements to the Next Generation model would you recommend to better align your strategic and operational objectives?

    Track 2 - Leveraging Technology to Create Value for Families in an Accountable Health Community in Dallas

    Peter Roberts, President Population Health and Insurance Services, Children's Health
    Pete Perialas, Chief Strategy Officer & SVP, Children’s Health
    Doris Hunt, SVP Insurance Services, Children’s Health

    The current business model of the healthcare system, which is focused solely on acute medical care solutions, is not working and millions of American families in similar situations, with adult and pediatric chronic illnesses. Healthcare delivery systems have long recognized the impact of non-medical determinants of health, especially in underserved communities, but have been challenged to build an integrated system that extends beyond medical care due to cultural, operational, financial and technical issues. The complex and interdependent set of challenges with which families attempt to cope in disadvantaged and underserved communities represent a “wicked” problem, whose resolution requires a systems approach to addressing a critical gap between clinical care and community services in the current healthcare system. Working harder at the same model is not the answer. A new model is needed to improve outcomes, reduce costs, and help people achieve a better life for themselves and their families. The new business model V3-061716 requires a new, more comprehensive technology solution as the integrated and comprehensive foundation.
    This presentation chronicles the journey to build a new business model by a group of medical, civic and community service organizations in Dallas - led by Children’s Health - in one of the fastest growing, underserved metropolitan areas of the country. Particular focus is placed on the information technology challenges and requirements to support a new business model.

    Track 3 - Assessing the Population Health Platform Marketplace: Strengths, Weakness and Implementation Challenges

    Andrew Webster, Actuary & Founder, Validate Health
    Charles F. Larimer, FSA, MAAA, Consulting Actuary, C F Larimer Consulting, LLC
    Richard Ferrans, MD, ScM, Chief Medical Officer & VP Innovation, VOV Enterprise

    ACOs require additional software tools to help operationalize newly acquired Population Health Management (PHM) activities. However, a comprehensive out-of-the-box PHM solution does not exist. ACOs quickly discover that organization-specific software requirements, significant investments, and long implementation timelines cause practical challenges that require tradeoffs to be made when selecting and installing a PHM solution. This session covers the best practices to select and implement a PHM solution. A methodology for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of PHM solutions, along with essential clinical and actuarial requirements, are discussed. Finally, ACOs are directed to the objective credible information sources in order to further research PHM vendors.

    Keynote: Democratization of Data: Accelerating Innovation to Improve Population Health

    Joxel Garcia, Executive Director at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Moon Shots Leadership & Former U.S. Assistant Secretary for Health

    There are many areas of improvement in the healthcare system for chronic disease management and control. The current clinical care model – diagnosis, treatment, and care – is episodic, reactionary, and expensive, and it is difficult to proactively incorporate several health factors and other relevant variables into a patient’s medical profile. The democratization of data can change this. Emerging operating models can translate discovery and insights into clinical decision support through knowledge transfer. By providing access to expert knowledge for quality evidence-based care, it is possible to achieve optimal disease control and improve population health.

    Track 1 - Moving metrics through integrating PHM solution into a CIN’s employed and independent model
    Monique Ruyle, VP Clinical Integration/Home Care, EvergreenHealth

    Presentation will share the process and lessons learned by EvergreenHealth Partners (EHP), a clinically integrated network, through their implementation of a population health management solution. EHP selected and implemented an EMR-agnostic solution that would work with the various EMRs used by each independent practice. The implementation has enabled proactive planning for contracts, clinician engagement, care coordination, and patient quality outcomes. She will discuss the processes and partnerships that led to a quickly successful implementation in 2015, resulting in: positive care management outcomes and physician engagement, quality improvements, and cost savings from payer contracts that were shared with providers. Providers are incentivized with financial rewards for meeting quality benchmarks, ensuring that treatment decisions are driven by patient care and quality outcomes rather than cost or convenience. EHP includes 60 practices and 634 providers, of which 250 are employed by EvergreenHealth, and 384 are independent; 180 are primary care, and 454 are specialists. EHP has six commercial contracts with health plans – four gain sharing and two risk contracts.

    Track 2 - Managing Patient Populations with Complex Conditions
    Moderator:Richard L. Brown, MD, MPH, Professor of Family Medicine, Director, Wisconsin Initiative to Promote Healthy Lifestyles , University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
    Rebecca Rohrbach, VP Population Health, NOMS ACO
    Andrea Kmetz, RN, Director of Care Management & Quality, Meritage Medical Network

    Patients with complex conditions have represent some 66% of the nation’s health care costs, according to the AHRQ. High costs are often attributed to uncoordinated, fragmented or unnecessary care, lack of timely diagnosis and patient non-compliance are also widely recognized as contributing factors. Data analytics and specialized care management services and applications promise to deliver highly-coordinated care, with an emphasis on changing patient behavior to encourage compliance, improve outcomes, reduce re-admissions and lower costs.
    Join our panel of experts to learn how provider organizations along with their community partners are addressing ‘at risk populations with multiple complex conditions’ and how they are leveraging leading edge analytics and applications to achieve these goals.

    Track 3 - Using Predictive Analytics to Achieve the ACO “Triple Aim” for Patients with Chronic Conditions
    Lillian Dittrick, Director of Unity Point Health and Fellow of the Society of Actuaries

    How can hospitals and health systems achieve the triple aim of improving the patient experience, cost and quality of care?  Unity Point Health, a physician-led health system, is harnessing the power of big data and predictive analytics to address these issues through the lens of patients with chronic conditions. During this discussion, Director Lillian Dittrick will talk specifically about using predictive analytics to better treat patients – in ACOs – with diabetes . With two thirds of the population overweight or obese, Dittrick is spearheading a program specifically designed to leverage data to combat risks stemming from the treatment of diabetes. Join this discussion to learn how Unity Point, and the actuarial profession in general, are using data and analytics to identify these chronic conditions, manage costs and implement quality control measures to maximize patient outcomes and minimize financial risks.
