| Opening Keynote: Four Things Patients Want You To Know About Our Engagement in Our Care
The topic of patient engagement has one meaning for clinicians – and something very different for patients. As consumers of healthcare, patients' notions can vary widely when it comes to what engagement entails, why we should be engaged, and the steps and practices we can take to engage most effectively. Dr. Jessie Gruman will cover patient engagement from the most important perspective – that of the patient. Dr. Gruman will discuss the challenges patients face in engaging in their care as well as approaches to overcoming some of the biggest obstacles that stand in the way of comprehensive engagement.

|Health Information Exchanges: The Key to Care Coordination
Gaining access to patient data is a challenge for many healthcare organizations. Silos of data within hospital systems, outside of networks and across a community can prevent physicians and other members of the care coordination team from obtaining a clear, concise view of the patient’s medical history and plan of care.
In today’s world, health information exchanges are no longer just an option. To achieve meaningful use of health information technology, organizations must exchange information to coordinate care electronically and collaborate with other members of the patient's care team. This session will review health information exchanges – where we are today and where we are headed – and the many ways that the secure exchange of health information will improve the delivery of healthcare.

|Innovations Between Health Plans and Providers to Improve Care Coordination and Transitions of Care
Patients with chronic conditions often need care from numerous physicians and other medical professionals across multiple settings of care. These patients often transition between hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies, doctors’ offices and home to obtain the services they need. Studies show that such transitions can jeopardize patient safety and quality of care as a result of incomplete and/or inaccurate transitions of care and uncoordinated care. Learn how organizations are using innovative programs to improve transitions of care that are resulting in reduced readmissions and other inefficiencies that contribute to escalating costs.

|Lunch and Luncheon Keynote Presentation:
Becoming Ginger Rogers…How Ballroom Dancing Made Me a Happier Woman, Better Partner and Smarter CEO
As you go about your daily routines, providing vital services for a diverse patient population, what’s the one thing that almost always takes a back seat? Is it the quality of care we provide? Is it something pertaining to our co-workers, clients or families? No – it is usually our own personal health and well-being. The ability to consistently provide care at high levels starts with the need to take care of ourselves – and to prevent job fatigue, burnout and poor outcomes, both professionally and personally. Our luncheon keynote speaker will share how ballroom dancing made her a happier women, better partner and smarter CEO.

|Value-Based Purchasing: Merging Quality and Patient Satisfaction
One of the most positively received elements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) has been the Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) program. The main goal of VBP is to compensate hospitals and other providers according to their ability to deliver quality healthcare across various core measures. By rewarding the best performers and penalizing the worst, this formula should encourage improved care and decreased waste. Find out what is coming and how two organizations are making the right gains to be on the winning side of the equation.

|Improving Care Coordination for the Dual Eligible Patient
Dual eligibles are among the most challenging populations for Medicaid and Medicare, due to the high incidence of multiple chronic conditions, socioeconomic disparities, and limited coordination between the programs. This population is expected to grow significantly under the Patient Protection and Affordable Act with a major focus of the law expanding coverage to those most at risk. Payers and providers are working to learn more about this population and develop patient-centric care plans to meet the needs of this challenging population. Hear from two organizations making strides and improving outcomes for the dual eligible population.
