Accountable Care IT Readiness

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.

Building on the success of the much anticipated and influential Accountable Care and HIT Strategies Conferences held in Miami and Chicago during 2012, the 2013 annual meeting 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.

What You Can Expect
At the summit, policymakers and leading HIT strategists will provide critical insights into the pathways that any organization will need to take to effectively build an information powered health system amongst ACO Participants to align clinical pathways and incentive models and better understand where the opportunities lie to really inflect patient care and the associated costs of care delivery.

    Workshop 01 | Paying For Outcomes Not Performances

    Gerald Tracy, Executive Director State and Payer Initiatives Program, 3M Health Information Systems

    View HD Video A pay for outcomes ("P4O") based approach differs from existing pay for performance initiatives in focusing on quality outcome rather than on process measures. P4O payment reform adjusts payments based on a provider' relative risk -adjusted performance in terms of outcomes, thereby creating a financial incentive for providers to reduce their rate of negative outcomes (e.g, of potentially preventable events) The success of P4O-based payment reform in cost containment and quality improvement is highly dependent on proper design and implementation. This workshop describes the essential principles of P4O systems--and illustrates these principles in action---as implemented for ACOs, hospitals and managed care plans by state and commercial payers in three different states.

    Workshop 02 | Healthcare BI/Analytics: The Scrabble Conundrum

    Joe Van De Graff, Research Director, KLAS Research

    View HD Video In the healthcare BI/analytics game, the word tiles are numerous and the vendor players are growing in number. For providers, the stakes are high, and making sense of the vendor word tiles and combinations is anything but easy.

    In this session, KLAS gives healthcare specific insight into dynamic BI market landscape, vendors and how they perform, and where things are headed.

    Workshop 03 | Strategies to Operationalize Care Coordination within an ACO

    Russell Olsen, VP, Product Management, Phytel

    View HD Video For healthcare organizations, becoming an ACO and implementing a Population Health Management strategy is no longer a matter of "if", but instead "when and how". Many healthcare organizations will try to become ACOs if the financial opportunity is sufficient. But only the ACOs that achieve clinical integration and learn how to execute on population health management will succeed. Therefore, information technologies, including automation tools, are essential components of ACO success.

    o achieve population health management, ACOs must use a range of information technologies. These include not only electronic health records, but also aggregating claims data to capture total cost of care and predictive risk, and supplemental technologies to automate the routine work of tracking, educating, and communicating with patients. These tools will make it possible to do PHM comprehensively and cost-effectively, allowing ACO members to benefit economically from shared-savings, bundled-payment and global capitation programs.

    Attend this pre-conference session to learn how many of the largest healthcare organizations are successfully addressing PHM by operationalizing care coordination.

    • Must-know strategies on how ACOs operationalize care coordination with their • PHM goals using automation to achieve the Triple Aim
    • Strategies for managing patient populations by enhancing your existing infrastructure
    • Ways to focus on patient engagement and intervention, addressing care gaps quickly

  • 04:15 pm « » 05:15 pm

    Workshop 04 |An Introduction to the CCHIT ACO HIT Framework: A Consensus Developed Guide to Success While Assuming Accountability for the Cost and Quality of Health Care

    Karen M. Bell MD, Chair Certification Commission for Health IT (CCHIT)

    View HD Video Organizations can assume financial risk and accountability for quality of care and patient loyalty in multiple different ways, depending on their current structure, culture, and goals. The processes and functions necessary to reach goals will vary accordingly, as will the HIT infrastructure that can best support them.

    Breakfast Roundtable: HIE / ACO Interconnectivity and Cross-HIE Analytics for Population Health Improvement

    Dave Minch, COO, HealthShare Bay Area

    HealthShare Bay Area has been pursuing a “connector strategy” for linking together the many private HIOs in its service area. While this strategy will help participants manage individual patient “out-of-network” encounters, it cannot directly provide the kind of analytics that a repository-based HIE can. HSBA is instead pursuing a unique query methodology which can be used to gather summarized data across all of those Participant HIOs who agree, that can be used for tracking regional and area health factors and can significantly add to the Participant’s individual analytic capabilities. Come and learn more, and help to frame up the use cases that you think are particularly relevant to your patient populations.

    Engaging Communities through Technology: Sharing Data and Risk

    Qi Li, M.D., Physician Executive, InterSystems

    View HD Video Accountable care organizations (ACO) are positioned to play a major role in restructuring the delivery of healthcare. Like other care models that are experiencing changing reimbursement structures, ACOs require new competencies to coordinate the delivery of care and manage populations, finances, and risk. To be successful, ACOs must excel in three areas where health IT plays a crucial role: strategic interoperability, care coordination, and analytics for action. Without these competencies, ACOs will not be able to meet their mandate to provide quality care while controlling costs.

    Strategic planning is required when building an IT ecosystem that connects an engaged community of providers, payers, and patients, and where analysis of real-time data is dynamic. As ACO guidelines and recommendations evolve, it is also crucial for organizations to have an IT infrastructure that is scalable, flexible, and extensible. In this presentation, we will share the strategic roadmap one healthcare enterprise has implemented to address these competencies on their journey to sharing data and risk across an engaged community.

    Keynote: Real ACOs: Turning Vision into Reality

    Brent James, Chief Quality Officer, Intermountain Healthcare

    View HD Video The idea that higher quality can drive lower costs transformed manufacturing world-wide during the latter part of the 20thcentury.  In the early 1990s, small groups of clinical researchers demonstrated that the same principles applied within health care delivery.  They showed that Shared Baseline protocols – “standard work” adapted to the needs of unique individual patients – massively improved clinical outcomes while very significantly reducing care delivery costs.  Unfortunately, under a fee-for-service payment system reductions in resource utilization resulting from better care nearly always created windfall savings for purchasers, while damaging care providers operating margins.  Accountable Care Organizations provide an operational framework for deploying best care protocols and reducing costs.  They also include payment mechanisms that align financial incentives, returning some of the resulting savings to the operating margins of the groups who lead the change.  All involved benefit:  Patients see much better, far more affordable care; care providers are able to focus on clinical excellence and survive financially; and those who finance care are able to control health care cost increases.  This talk will cover the operational structure to deploy such a system, with live examples drawn from Intermountain Healthcare.
