Personal Health Data Mining: The Empowered Patient

Personal Health Data Mining: The Empowered Patient

Talithia Williams

Host of the PBS series NOVA Wonders

Dr. Williams makes a compelling case that healthcare providers should encourage patients to measure and record simple data about their bodies daily. Based upon her hit TED Talk, “Own Your Body’s Data,” Dr. Williams shares how patients should be monitoring their personal data by using both everyday technologies and high-tech wearables. With these devices, healthcare consumers can easily quantify everything from heart rate and sleep patterns to body temperature and fertility. However, what is the average patient to do with the massive amounts of data being collected? Dr. Williams believes empowered patients sharing this information with their healthcare providers not only strengthens doctor-patient dialog but also enhances patient outcomes.

Innovative Approach to Care Transitions: An Evolution of Whole Person Care

Innovative Approach to Care Transitions: An Evolution of Whole Person Care

Emily Downing, MD

System Clinical Officer, Allina Health

Hospital readmissions cost Medicare $26B annually and are often a source of frustration for patients and providers. Allina Health describes its innovative, comprehensive approach to improving care transitions and preventing unnecessary readmissions. The organization uses its robust analytics to identify and understand factors influencing readmissions and improve the care provided. It addresses care needs as a collective, coordinated body of work, continually improving care transitions, reducing readmissions, and avoiding millions in excess costs annually. It has developed a sustainable path forward, offering care across the continuum with seamless connections and recognizing the factors affecting health—mind, body, spirit, and community.

Participants will:

  • Identify critical technology and information framework components to effectively stratify patients at risk for transition failure, readmissions, and unwarranted care utilization.
  • Describe coordinated care transitions that match the right level of care upon discharge to improve healthcare quality, safety, experience, access, and affordability.
  • Explore success stories of care management for high-risk patients spanning the care continuum.
Augmented Intelligence and a Physician-Forward Strategy Improve Quality Metrics and Transform Clinical Documentation

Augmented Intelligence and a Physician-Forward Strategy Improve Quality Metrics and Transform Clinical Documentation

Kory Anderson, MD, CHCQM, FACP

Medical Director of Physician Advisor Services and CDI, Intermountain Healthcare

Kearstin Jorgenson

Operations Director for Intermountain Physician Advisor Services (IPAS)

Clinical documentation integrity (CDI) programs help ensure that patient stories are fully documented, leading to appropriate reimbursement and improved quality measure performance. Traditional methods rely on retrospective queries, resulting in re-work as physicians must revisit patient records to respond. Physicians and CDI teams are invested in creating a complete, accurate patient record. Still, workflows are often misaligned, leading to inefficiencies and documentation gaps negatively impacting hospital quality measurement and reimbursement. Intermountain Healthcare will share how deploying augmented intelligence (AI) to connect siloed physician and CDI workflows transformed CDI efforts. AI delivers clinical insights to physicians as they document. CDI efforts are now focused on quality and building a patient-centric, physician-led CDI strategy, improving quality and financial performance, and generating efficiencies that free up CDI specialists to focus on other complex quality and mortality reviews.

Join this session and learn how to:

  • Describe strategies for addressing physician/CDI silos with a physician-led approach.
  • Explain successful approaches for aligning physician and CDI workflows to improve quality metrics and financial measures.
  • Apply physician-forward practices for implementing physician-supportive augmented intelligence solutions.

Managing Uncertainty in the Transition from Volume to Value

Managing Uncertainty in the Transition from Volume to Value

Deepak Sadagopan, MHCDS

Senior Vice President, Value-Based Care and Population Health Informatics, Providence

Significant healthcare policy reform, changes in payment models rewarding value and outcomes over volume, and market forces, such as the ever-increasing costs of healthcare premiums, force employers and groups to reduce healthcare costs. Providence Health System will share its decade-long journey to transition from volume to value. Beginning with 99 percent of its total revenue derived from fee-for-service arrangements, the organization now has 150 unique value-based care arrangements across all payer classes, covering one-third of the entire patient population served and influencing close to 40 percent of total revenue.

Join this session to:

  • Discover how to build data-driven methods to identify risk, measure performance, and develop management levers designed to mitigate uncertainty.
  • Identify critical components of a technology and information framework to manage risk effectively.
  • Recognize the strategic ingredients for operational interoperability between payers and providers in a value-based care landscape.

The State of the Union in 2022: Guideposts for Strategically Reshaping the Industry

The State of the Union in 2022: Guideposts for Strategically Reshaping the Industry

Ford Koles, Jr.

Vice President and National Spokesperson, Advisory Board

The health care industry right now is facing an increasingly tough business climate, dominated by increasing costs and prices, tightening margins and capital, and staffing upheaval. The array of urgent, disruptive market forces today means that leaders must navigate an unusually high number of short-term crises and opportunities. These pressures are easily distracting: for some, they are overwhelming, while they tempt others into overambitious initiatives. Leaders’ strategic choices now will have an outsized impact—positive or negative—on their trajectory toward long-term goals. 

Specifically, we’ll focus the discussion on:

The disruptive market forces shaping the entire industry’s business environment for most health care organizations, including:

  • The workforce crisis driving a realignment of staffing across the industry
  • The insurance coverage swings poised to continue dramatic shifting
  • The growing creation of vertical ecosystems with provider, plan, pharmacy, technology, and retail assets 
  • The tumultuous innovation investment capital flows into science and technology

The strategic decision guideposts represent where leaders have the greatest agency to influence the future in multiple directions, including:

  • How far the health equity business mandate will reach
  • Which commercial cost drivers the industry will target through value-based payment
  • Who will influence how physician partnership shifts patient volumes
  • What level of consumer navigation choices will be the most effective to curate
  • The business goals that will drive why organizations prioritize telehealth innovation
  • Where most of the industry will position their home-based care strategy

Creating Cultural Contagion Within Your Health System

Creating Cultural Contagion Within Your Health System

Marcus Collins, DBA, MBA

Top Booked Speaker, DE&I Thought Leader, Head of Strategy, Wieden+Kennedy

The best data-driven insights don’t matter and don’t effect behavior unless they are communicated broadly and appropriately.  In today’s hyper-connected world, the allure of “going viral” continues to seduce idea-generators into investing significant time and resources toward the creation of content – videos, memes, tweets, posts, etc. – that spreads. Though there are benefits to “going viral,” one must wonder if virality is truly what we’re after or if perhaps there is something far greater worth pursuing. This session reframes the benefits of “going viral” and provides an alternative aim. It explores the impact of culture on consumer behavior and offers an actionable framework that enables marketers to create ideas/messages/ products/content that not only spread but also take hold in the culture of your health system.

What You Can Learn from 100 Days of Rejection

What You Can Learn from 100 Days of Rejection

Jia Jiang

Top Inspirational and Emotional Intelligence Speaker

Data-driven analytics can require tenacity, especially when faced with the inevitable failure of data, analytics, or interventions to make a positive impact.  Or when recommendations are rejected by leaders or teams. 

The fear of rejection can hold you back. Our natural tendency is to avoid it at all costs which can be detrimental to our businesses, careers, and lives. In 2012, to overcome his own fear of rejection, entrepreneur Jia Jiang started an experiment to be rejected every day for 100 days. The result became the basis of his #3 viewed TED talk of 2017 and bestselling book: Rejection Proof. In this engaging presentation, Jia shares stories from his rejection experiment to teach you the importance of becoming rejection-proof, the basic principles of turning a NO into YES, as well as how to get more YESes.

Quality Analytics Manager, Baptist Health Care

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) to incentivize healthcare organizations to provide excellent care. However, siloed reporting can make it difficult to identify improvement opportunities as it can take weeks for the data to make its way through the system. Learn how Baptist Health tackled this problem by using data to maximize MIPS scores and ensure the points assigned accurately reflected the expert care provided to patients. Improvements included a 92.94 composite MIPS score, achieving exceptional performer quartile performance, qualifying for the exceptional performance bonus, and increasing revenue.

Join this session to discover:

  • How actionable data and analytics can help accelerate MIPS performance
  • How to gain a better understanding of MIPS measures, including the importance of documentation timing for diagnosis codes, medications, and exclusion and exemption criteria
  • How to standardize and streamline documentation expectations

Data Science as Interstitial Fluid: Lessons and Experience from a Growing Neuroscience Biotech

Data Science as Interstitial Fluid: Lessons and Experience from a Growing Neuroscience Biotech

Nirmal Keshava

Nirmal Keshava, PhD

Vice President, Data Science and Innovation, Cerevel Therapeutics

The integration of data science into the fabric of the medical industry is ongoing. Biotechs are unique as they typically work with very limited resources but can use data-centric approaches in the early stages of drug development, where they can impart a substantial downstream impact. However, using data science effectively depends on having a constellation of opportunities, resources, and internal champions. The chances for success are further improved by human factors and a strongly human-centric approach to engagement and solution development.

Find out how Cerevel has tackled this by establishing a data science organization early that has since permeated many organizations—beginning the process of establishing data-centric platforms, technologies, and algorithms as a kind of interstitial fluid that is reducing uncertainty in decision making and increasing efficiency.

Join this session to learn:

  • Benefits of applying data science to a wide variety of problems.
  • Steps you can take to insert data science into your organization.
  • Use cases across pre-clinical research and development, clinical development and operations, and strategic business development.
