What Works in High Performing Networks Part 1: Network Domains and Drivers of Value

Strategies for Effective Care Management: Supercharging Primary Care

Comprehensive Care Management and Coordination support for high and rising risk patients is a key driver in impacting quality improvement and addressing total cost of care. As a result, many practices have hired dedicated care managers but often, this is not enough. The care manager role enables the practice to be more intentional about population health but the lack of a supportive infrastructure, such as meaningful integration into the primary care team or access to useful registries/risk-stratification reports, can easily derail these efforts. Join this discussion about creating a population health infrastructure to support care management efforts.

Moderator: David Ehrenberger, MD, Chief Medical Officer, HealthTeamWorks

Beyond QI: Why "Learning Organization" Competencies Matter

As in medicine, there is both art and science to quality improvement. One of the defining characteristics of successful modern companies (think Toyota or Virginia Mason) is their transformation as learning organizations. During this round table discussion, we will explore what it means to be a learning organization; how performance improvement as a core system property - systems, practice, and expertise - is foundational to high quality, high efficiency, and patient centered care.

What Works in High Performing Networks Part 3: The 13 Drivers of Advanced Network Integration

Of the many catch words of Quadruple Aim healthcare, "integration" is both profound and, without clear definition, at risk for being meaningless. Our expert panelists will dissect the various forms of integration (such as clinical, HIT, community) and introduce 13 best practice drivers of meaningful organizational integration across an accountable provider network.

The Tools and Teamwork of Effective Risk Stratified Care Management

The "accountability" of accountable care provider networks is for the cost and quality of care delivered to empaneled patients over time. The interactive discussion will explore the best practices of risk stratification and, most importantly, what to do next - namely, what are the characteristics of advanced care networks that efficiently identify high-risk and rising risk patients and effectively improve their health while decreasing avoidable/unnecessary care (utilization).

What Works in High Performing Networks Part 4: Value Based, IDN Performance Payer Contracts and Funds Flow

For decades, commercial payers have largely been in the driver's seat defining the merits of quality, cost, and the economics of funds flows from patients and employers to providers. High-value, population based healthcare however, is now the domain of primary care powered Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs). Join us in sharing best practices on how newly organized accountable care providers can and must assume these responsibilities; how to own and leverage quality and cost data for successful contracting, and how the "funds flow" of an effective IDN business model can, and must, support critical new population health services and reward high performing primary (and specialty) care practices.

What Works in High Performing Networks Part 5:  The Power of Transformative Clinical Analytics

For provider organizations striving to deliver on Quadruple Aim performance, the jury is back: he or she who owns the data rules. Alas, we in healthcare delivery are often last in line -- after payers, EHR vendors, and analytics companies -- when it comes to data competency, namely, data ownership and use for the benefit of our empaneled patients. But there are alternatives; ones with healthcare providers in the driver's seat. This panel discussion brings key experts together to explore the tools and practices of Transformative Clinical Analytics.

Home Based Palliative Care: Profound Patient Centering

Most of the care and cost of care over a lifetime is focused on the final months of life. Alas, there is also the inconvenient truth that this concentrated "end of life" care is very often at odds with the wishes and desires of the patients themselves. This discussion will bring together experts in team and home-based care models that are centered on the values and directives of patients and their families. The results are as powerful as they are moving. These patients report they experience better quality of life and where they prefer to have it - at home. The literature shows they will also have a longer life.
