It is vital for organizations to get their infrastructure right in order to effectively assume financial risk for cost and quality.
Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Dr. Jonathan Niloff, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of MedVentive, the market leader of end‐to‐end solutions that improve patient care while strengthening financial performance for physician groups, will be a featured speaker at HIMMS12 on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 12 noon in the ACO Knowledge Center. Dr. Niloff’s presentation, ACO Success Factors: Building a Knowledge-Based Technology Infrastructure for Population & Risk Management, will highlight his insights on how to leverage healthcare technology to help organizations successfully transform themselves. MedVentive’s origins as an accountable care organization and his front-line experience give him a unique perspective.
“In Massachusetts, we’ve had experience with the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) concept for more than a decade,” said Dr. Niloff. “As the healthcare landscape undergoes fundamental change, and reform shifts ever more risk to provider organizations, our experience has provided invaluable lessons that every provider organization should know.”
The speech will be highlighted as part of the Accountable Care Organization/Value-Based Purchasing Knowledge Center, a new feature of the HIMSS conference, designed to provide a one-stop experience for attendees. The ACO Knowledge Center will feature education sessions, case study presentations, and networking opportunities in a setting dedicated to ACO issues. You can visit MedVentive at the HIMSS ACO Knowledge Center, Booth 6466, Kiosk 1, February 20-24 at the Venetian Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
“ACOs must leverage technology to manage the shift in care models from a focus on single patient encounters to managing whole patient populations,” explained Dr. Niloff. “It is vital for organizations to get their infrastructure right in order to effectively assume financial risk for cost and quality, and I look forward to sharing some key guidelines on how to accomplish this.”
While healthcare was evolving the concept of an accountable care organization, MedVentive was busy operating as one. MedVentive was founded as the Provider Service Network (PSN) in 1997 by the CareGroup Healthcare System, an integrated, at-risk network of 4,500 physicians and eight hospitals that cared for more than 450,000 at-risk patients. The network included the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching facility of Harvard Medical School.
Our origins as an ACO give MedVentive a deep understanding of provider organizations and the healthcare environment. Having been an at-risk provider network, MedVentive is uniquely qualified to support an organization’s transition from a fee-for-service payment environment to risk-based contracting, and provide the clinical integration/population management infrastructure necessary to be successful under this new model.
