Webinar Reminder: Building an Analytics-Based Value Model to Validate Transformation Investments

Posted by Matthew Smith on Nov 29, 2016 2:10:38 PM

shutterstock_392113519.jpgPlease join GE Healthcare Camden Group for a complimentary, 60-minute webinarBuilding an Analytics-Based Value Model to Validate Transformation Investments, on Thursday, December 8, 2016, at 12:00 P.M., ET.

Date:

Thursday, December 8th, 12:00 P.M., Eastern

Background:

Healthcare organizations are struggling to understand the impact of their investments in population health initiatives. To help measure performance risk and evaluate return on investment ("ROI"), organizations are building and implementing analytics-based value models as decision-making tools. Creating these value models allows healthcare organizations to quantify risks and evaluate viability. It also allows organizations to measure and track ROI in digital health technology and resources associated with various programs aimed at managing the health of the populations they serve.

GE Healthcare Camden Group's team of analysts, data scientists, and actuaries builds comprehensive analytics-based value models for organization leaders (CFO, CMO, CIO, Population Health Leaders) wanting to evaluate their ROI from investments in care management programs, look to better manage utilization, and predict outcomes.

Overview:

In this complimentary webinar, members of the GE Healthcare Camden Group team will deliver an overview of the analytics-based value model and how high-performing healthcare organizations are leveraging these to guide strategic decision making and prioritize investments in value-based care initiatives.  

Topics to be Addressed:

Held in a round-table format with GE Healthcare Camden Group senior leaders representing the roles of an organization's CFO, CMO, and CIO, the webinar will address the following questions facing today's leaders:
  • Where should organizations invest resources in order to drive the most value from their care management programs?
  • What is the impact on their programs to both acute and ambulatory utilization?
  • Which programs are driving the greatest value and how are these measured?
  • What “value levers” are important in order to drive the best outcomes?
  • What is the expected outcomes from managing certain medical conditions and/or population risk cohorts?
  • What is the typical ROI of their care management programs and population health initiatives?
  • How can this information be used to support risk-based contracting with payers and other providers?

Last Chance for Webinar Registration: The Academic Health Center of the Future—New Approaches to Capacity Optimization and Command Centers

Posted by Matthew Smith on Nov 9, 2016 3:43:11 PM

webinarAs a reminder, registration closes soon for tomorrow's webinar, The AHC of the Future—New Approaches to Capacity Optimization and Command Centers. The webinar is complimentary and is hosted by the Association of Academic Health Centers. Please consider attending this webinar, featuring GE Healthcare Camden Group thought leaders.

Webinar Details

Webinar Title: The AHC of the Future: New Approaches to Capacity Optimization and Command Centers

Host: Association of Academic Health Centers

Date: Thursday, November 10, 2016

Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm (Eastern Standard Time)

About this Event

Today, academic health centers (“AHCs”) across the country are experiencing capacity challenges, including: admitted patients wait too long; patients are held in OR and/or PACU; patient bed assignment is not optimized for patient and overall flow, patient flow is not well integrated between facilities, and so on.

Not only does this result in a poor patient experience, but the challenges are further compacted by the need to lower costs under payment reform while still expecting strong volume. There is an urgent need for new approaches to capacity management as AHCs are forced to either build new capacity or function at higher levels of utilization. Capacity is a costly and ultimately scarce resource, and every effort must be made to value it accordingly. But how can you create more access for higher acuity patients in a way that is cost effective? How can you efficiently manage capacity and the care model while still leaving time for meaningful teaching/mentoring? How do you truly enable innovative transformation in organizations with deep-rooted cultural traditions?

Most AHCs have exhausted the low-hanging fruit of optimizing care in one area and need to optimize for the entire system. This session, presented by University of Michigan Health System (“UMHS”) and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, in collaboration with national healthcare business advisory firm, GE Healthcare Camden Group, will focus on innovative, forward-thinking approaches two leading AHC systems have undertaken to improve patient flow and optimize capacity to achieve measurable outcomes, including designing and implementing a first-of-its-kind command center. Using both systems as case studies, the speakers will share their experiences, challenges, and successes with achieving capacity transformation without expansion, as they enable the transformation needed to thrive as an AHC of the future.

This is the MACRA Webinar You've Been Waiting For

Posted by Matthew Smith on Oct 6, 2016 12:06:37 PM

webinar_Clouds_icon-resized-600-2.jpgPlease join GE Healthcare Camden Group for a complimentary, 60-minute webinar, Chart Your Course for MACRA Success, on Thursday, October 20, 2016, at 12:00 P.M., ET.

Background:

In April 2015, the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 ("MACRA") was passed, ending the Sustainable Growth Rate ("SGR") formula for determining Medicare payments for healthcare providers’ services. MACRA is intended to accelerate moving care delivery toward quality and value-based reimbursement models through the new Merit-Based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS") and incentive payments for participation in certain Alternative Payment Models ("APMs").

This law has a strict timeline to implement strategy to maximize possible incentive payments, improve care delivery and design, and successfully achieve efficiencies improving cost and quality that will go into effect 2019 based on the 2017 performance reporting period. While the final details of the incentives for the new payment models will not be defined until CMS publishes the final rule in November 2016, there are several things you can begin doing to determine optimum strategy and prepare for 2017.

Overview:

In this complimentary webinar, members of the GE Healthcare Camden Group consulting team will deliver an overview of the legislative details of the new payment reform law and the implications of MACRA. They will also provide the necessary tools to successfully navigate through the next phase of participation for the Quality Payment Program, MIPS, and APMs.

Date:

Thursday, October 20, 12:00 P.M., Eastern

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the timing and timeline for MACRA implementation
  • Review the two tracks for participation, APMs and MIPs
  • Examine the incentives and penalties associated with MACRA
  • Gain insight on MIPs Composite Score:
  • Understand what it will take to be successful under MACRA
  • Master the steps to take to begin the path to APMs

MACRA, MIPS, and CPIA GO!: Tips for Success

Posted by Matthew Smith on Oct 5, 2016 12:56:02 PM

By Susan Corneliuson, MHS, FACHE, Senior Manager, GE Healthcare Camden Group 

pkmn.pngPokémon GO!, a sensation in the gaming world, popularized location-based and augmented gaming reality but was initially released with mixed reviews. To some the game is little more than people running around catching virtual critters that appear in their coffee or on their neighbor’s lawn at 2:00 in the morning; to others it is a game of strategy in which they pulverize rival teams by taking control of gyms. In some ways, the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System ("MIPS") is also a game of strategy with physicians pitted against each other to see who will win the most points and take control of the healthcare dollar.

The Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (“CPIA”) performance category is the new addition to the Quality Payment Program under MIPS and with it also came mixed reviews. Adding incentives to improve the clinical practice environment, a category largely missing from past quality reporting programs, was seen as a benefit to the program. However, with over 90 activities to choose from there is concern about the cost to a practice of increasing or adding up to six new activities. 

Regardless of the potential draw-backs how do we become early adopters of CPIA and succeed in this new quality environment? Let’s think of CPIA as a game in which we have to catch three to six Pokémon (activities) out of 90 potential activities to win. In Pokémon Go there is a power hierarchy: those that are found everywhere (Caterpie, Weedle, Meowth) are worth less than those that are rarer (Venusaur, Blastoise, Dragonite). The less powerful Pokémon can be found everywhere so are easier to catch but can evolve into more powerful Pokémon. 

CPIA activities are also arranged in subcategories and assigned a weight of “high” or “medium,” earning 20 or 10 points each, respectively. Full credit achievement for this category is 60 points. Higher weighted activities are aligned with CMS national priorities and programs such as the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (“QIN/QIO”) or the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative (“CPCI”).  To be successful, select activities that are:

  • Easy wins such as activities that you are already doing
  • Simple to measure, track and report
  • Easily implemented with minimal effort or cost
  • Choose high-weighted activities for maximum points when possible. To achieve the highest potential score of 100 percent or 60 points, complete 3 high-weighted activities, 6 medium-weighted activities, or a combination thereof.  

Remember, 100 percent achievement on the CPIA category is attainable since measures are selected by the practice and there are no performance thresholds established for comparison. The six proposed subcategories with examples of high and medium weighted activities are show in the table below.

CLIA Sample List of Activities with High and Medium Weightings

MIPS_TABLE.png

Source: Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

Examples of activities that are weighted as high include:

  • Population Management: Use of a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (“QCDR”) to access practice patterns and treatment outcomes
  • Care Coordination: Participation in the CMS Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative.

Example of activities that are weighted as medium include:

  • Expanded Practice Access: Collection of patient experience and satisfaction data on access to care and development of an improvement plan
  • Beneficiary Engagement: Access to an enhanced patient portal that provides up to date information related to relevant chronic health conditions with bidirectional communication and interactive features.

There are a few activities that are more evolved than others and therefore earn a higher point value such as a patient-centered medical home (“PCMH”) or alternative payment models (“APM”). Participation in a PCMH model or comparable specialty medical home automatically qualifies for 60 points; full credit under the CPIA category. Participation in an APM that does not quality as an advanced payment model will automatically receive 30 points or 50 percent of the maximum point value. 

There are still a lot of unknowns under MIPS with the final rule expected November 1, 2016; however, preparing early and getting a jump start on your competitors will allow for more success down the road. MIPS is a zero sum game as no additional dollars are added to the budget which means that there will be winners and losers. CMS also anticipates that the first year will be the “easiest” under CPIA, with measures continuing to evolve over time. Just like Pokémon Go!, those that jump in early will be able to evolve more quickly and will have more potential to receive positive payment adjustments down the road.
