The Massachusetts Health and Hospital Association has been leading the way in combating the opioid epidemic, collaborating with the Massachusetts Medical Society, Massachusetts state government and many other partners. During this session, we will discuss the root causes of our current dire predicament; the first step in getting out of a hole is to stop digging.  Next we will discuss addiction physiology, opioid substance use disorder treatment and concrete best practices, tools and guidelines which attendees can share with their own colleagues back home.  Let’s make a difference together.

 

11:15 AM
Panel Discussion

 

Join our diverse group of experts for a discussion on how to develop best-in-class population health programs, that are scalable. Discussion topics and concepts to be addressed include:

  • How do health system leaders retool resources they already have to build population health management programs?
  • How do you build to scale across multiple sites?
  • What does it mean to tie population health tools together from the perspective of interoperability, nursing, etc.?
  • How does patient experience play a role in population health management? How do you serve patients and engage them in their care?

Have you wanted to create consistent patient and plan member consumer experiences? Or provide opportunities to lower the cost of care? A digital health strategy is will answer your needs. At the heart of a digital health strategy is data trusted, secure data that can be accessed by everyone in the organization. To reach this level of maturity, organizations are starting to leverage governance to foster and deliver trusted data to their line of business data consumers.

Hyper-convergence is a oft-used buzzword now within health IT circles, especially as the advent of new technologies around flexible infrastructure continue to disrupt the marketplace. However, hyper-converged computing represents a unique area of opportunity for healthcare IT teams, especially in the face of demands from leadership for greater flexibility, and lower time-to-market for new built or merged facilities or locations. So what exactly is hyper-convergence and how does it fit into the IT roadmap?

Provider Spotlight

 

Provider spotlight sessions feature local healthcare organization leader(s) discussing how they have changed patient care.

“Clinical Integration” is a key component of many supply chain strategies, but its definition and implementation vary greatly, creating confusion when partnering with key stakeholders, such as physicians, payers, suppliers, and purchasing organizations. AHRMM’s Cost-Quality-Outcomes (CQO) Movement was envisioned as a continually evolving initiative that helps providers and suppliers think more holistically to achieve the Triple Aim: Improving the patient experience and the health of populations, while reducing the per capita cost of healthcare. As healthcare moves toward more value-based payment models and the CQO Movement evolves, the need for a clearer definition of “Clinical Integration” is emerging. This session will address new key stakeholders, managing “new” data, a better way to engage physicians in supply chain and value-based payment models to achieve a data-driven definition of “Clinical Integration".

 

4:00 PM

 

Join Healthcare Innovation in honoring the 2020 Innovator Award winners and a presentation with the first place team. This session will be posted when the award winners are announced in early 2020. The Healthcare Innovation Innovator Awards Program recognizes leadership teams from patient care organizations—hospitals, physician groups, clinics, integrated health systems, payers, HIEs, ACOs, and other healthcare organizations—that have effectively deployed information technology in order to improve clinical, administrative, financial, or organizational performance.

In an EHR survey of over 40,000 physicians from 210 organizations in 8 countries, we found dramatic difference in the physician experience between organizations using the same EHR. What separates the successful from the unsuccessful? Leadership that plays offense. Successful organizations have leadership that is aggressively solving the problems that their clinicians face. These leaders are ensuring that clinicians are not just given software but are prepared to use it. These leaders build strong relationships with department leadership, deeply understanding departmental needs and partnering to quickly meet those needs. These leaders help clinicians take control of their own success. What is more, these leaders do not spend more on their EHR for this success.
