Pre-Conference Workshop: September 19, 2013
Analyzing Data to Improve Process, Quality and Clinical Outcomes in the Era of Payment Reform
Measurement Conference: September 20, 2013
The need for change is upon us, and the results we need to deliver are clear: Better performance, better quality at a smaller cost burden.
To reach our objective of lower costs and better quality, we need to focus on the work processes and medical treatments that lead to the best health outcomes. It is a critical time to use data to guide our practices and to aid our decision-making. Moreover, with the growing link between quality of care and reimbursement levels, payers and providers increasingly are realizing that data is critical for their survival.
Both private and public payers require data as they experiment with innovative payment models that seek to move the industry from a fee-for-service paradigm to a system that rewards providers for their outcomes, quality, population wellness, and cost containment. Providers meanwhile are seeing disruptions in their processes as they learn new systems to ensure reimbursements and profitability for their organizations.
In light of these new-fold challenges and objectives, Dorland Health presents the first measurement conference. This program brings leaders involved in care coordination together for an interactive conference that will share information, strategies and resources aimed at effectively using data to improve quality of care provided while reducing waste and inefficiency.
By attending the 2013 Measurement Conference you will:
- Learn how to leverage best practices, lessons learned, and data knowledge to achieve optimal health, and financial outcomes as a way to realize optimal performance for organizations.
- Find out how to use data analytics, tracking tools and transparency that reflect your patient population to identify areas where interventions can make a difference.
- Take away ideas you can use to achieve better healthcare and financial outcomes.
- Understand the role of data and data analytics in the emerging paradigm of accountable care.
- Learn how to capture data as it relates to the shift away from a fee-for-service to pay-for-performance model of healthcare delivery.
- Discover how organizations successfully collect, analyze, track and trend data to identify areas of risk and realize clinical, quality and performance improvement.
- Take away strategies to obtain organizational buy-in across departments as you seek to implement new models of tracking patients and capturing data.
- Learn the critical steps involved in building a plan for team education and performance improvement.

I just wanted to let you know that it was great to be a part of the Care Coordination Summit and to hear how hospitals around the country are evolving their Care Coordination practices to align with the forthcoming challenges of healthcare reform. My company focuses our Care Coordination methodology mainly on the inpatient setting and working to coordinate patients' care while still in the hospital. I found it to be very informative and insightful to hear about the Care Coordination efforts that are taking place outside of these hospitals, with a focus on decreasing readmissions.
Thank you so much for putting on such a wonderful and insightful gathering, and I look forward to hear what Dorland Health has to offer going forward.
