JPS Health Network’s Melinda Yates Costin & CTG Health Solutions’ Linda Lockwood Co-Speak at AHIMA 2015
DALLAS, TX – September 22, 2015
Melinda Yates Costin, CHCIO, FHIMSS, CPHIMS, Vice President and CIO, JPS Health Network and Linda Lockwood, RN, MBA, Solutions Director, Advisory Services, CTG Health Solutions, will present “Navigating the Compliance Conundrum – How to Successfully Position Your Organization to Thrive in the Volume to Value Transition,” at the American Health Information Management Association’s (AHIMA) 2015 Convention and Exhibit. Themed “HIM Without Walls,” the convention takes place September 26-30 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Healthcare CIOs remain under pressure as they manage enterprise-wide programs such Meaningful Use, ACO’s and Population Health while continuing to drive towards achievement of the larger organizational strategies. Navigating the path forward will remain challenging, at best, as these programs vie for IT resources, time and funding. Then there’s the ever-present threat of pre- and post-payment CMS audits, which are sending a clear message—compliance is expected.
This presentation includes the unique perspectives of two seasoned healthcare industry leaders who will engage in a dialogue about the measures that healthcare organizations should be undertaking now to not only achieve compliance with the myriad of regulatory initiatives, but also to build a solid foundation for meeting the goals of the Triple Aim while moving your organization to a programmatic approach owned by all key stakeholders.
