    The transition from a volume-based, acute care-oriented payment model to one that emphasizes value and prevention causes healthcare organizations to assume more responsibility for managing patients’ care outside of a traditional delivery model. As a result, healthcare providers must develop care coordination and population health management strategies that include partnerships to maximize available resources devoted to managing conditions that increase costs. Provider partners must combine technological innovation with workflows to create effective data management and information sharing across the care continuum. This presentation focuses on Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital and the integrated care plan followed since 2015. MLKCH’s CIO Sajid Ahmed explains how his community hospital employs a variety of strategies, such as eConsults, telehealth services, information sharing, mobile technologies and partnerships to offer patients expanded and easier access to care services.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Identify effective coordination strategies for managing chronic health conditions across the continuum of care
    • Explain the importance of tying workflows and processes to all healthcare technology implementations
    • Recognize the unique socioeconomic barriers and historical care fragmentation that impacts safety net clinics and hospitals
    • Explain the importance of establishing care coordination and population health management goals prior to selecting healthcare information technology solutions

    Occupational burnout is a serious issue of long-standing for the healthcare workforce. With greater pressure on outcomes accountability, changing models of ownership and control, shrinking payments and more demands on their time, physician well-being is getting a lot of attention.

    The shift to value-based care represents one of the biggest challenges faced by healthcare organizations. VBC encourages the effective delivery of evidence-based treatments by tying provider compensation to improved patient outcomes. Meeting the triple aim of improving patient experience and population health while reducing the per capita cost of care will require creating a means to measure costs and quality at the case level as well as at the aggregate level. Supporting technologies must illuminate the relationship between costs, clinical practices and patient outcomes over time. Also, current fee-for-service models will not entirely disappear in the transition, at least not for the foreseeable future. As providers move to pay-for-performance models, it is important to understand how current FFS and new quality-based systems can coexist to provide the best patient care while remaining financially viable. In the effort to reduce cost of care without compromising quality, much can be done in terms of better utilization of assets and resources. Critical to success in VBC adoption is the use of technologies that enable effective clinical and cost analytics. Evolving technical infrastructure must support:
    • Integration of financial and clinical data sets to yield insight into the true cost per patient case, potential gaps in care delivery and related outcomes
    • Routine tracking of clinical quality measure performance to support ongoing process improvement and reporting initiatives
    • Data-driven care management programs designed to promote at-risk patient identification and intervention and care team collaboration
    Technology can support advances in care coordination across a range of care settings. In an environment moving toward episodic care and billing, health organizations need to cater to care episodes that may involve providers that are not part of their organization. In both internal and cross-setting care delivery, health IT must enable process optimization through informed action.
    ---
    Learning Objectives This focus group session seeks to better understand the technical infrastructure and business processes being implemented by hospital leadership teams to:
    1. Simultaneously support dual FFS and VBC delivery and reimbursement models
    2. Identify efficiency improvement opportunities in care delivery and utilization
    3. Drive clinical performance improvements and population health management strategy
