Analytics Role in Driving Successful Practice Management
David Kisch, Optum
Analytics continues to play a bigger and bigger role across healthcare each year. Medical practices are at the center of this universe as their patients are playing a larger role in how their healthcare is delivered, payers are pushing physicians to better understand their patient populations, and reimbursement models continue to move toward a value based system that rewards physicians more for delivering the right care at the right time.
This session will highlights some of the key areas where data and analytics is being utilized to help physicians and practice managers improve their practices and achieve better outcomes. The session will also highlight some of the newer techniques being utilized by organizations to move along the continuum from predictive analytics to prescriptive analytics.
Land of 10,000 Barriers: Tips and Tools for Exchanging Health Information in Minnesota
As part of CMS' State Innovation Model Initiative (SIM), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) is working with Gray Plant Mooty to address barriers that inhibit the exchange of PHI among providers, payers, and patients. Gray Plant Mooty has developed the Foundations in Privacy Toolkit (the â€œToolkitâ€) to improve health information exchange in Minnesota, which contains template policy and procedure documents, forms, flow charts, checklists, and other guidance documents. This session will focus on providing attendees with these practical tools to support the exchange of health information. Topics will include: 1) Summary of current state initiatives to improve health information exchange, privacy and security in Minnesota; 2) Discussion of common privacy and security issues (including issues that arise with consent, the sharing of information for non-treatment purposes, and exchange of PHI with providers in different systems); and 3) Distribution of the Toolkit and a discussion on how to best use the documents in practice.
