Annapolis, MD (PRWEB) May 01, 2014
Healthcare – and the field of risk-adjustment – is under increasing pressure to do more with fewer resources. Surprisingly, many health plans and risk-adjustment vendors are behaving similarly to how historians describe the collapse of past human civilizations, such as the Roman Empire. Unless leaders embrace new data sources and innovative technology, subtle yet persistent inefficiencies could lead to analogous collapses among health plans.
In partnership with RISE Association (Resource Initiative and Society for Education) Pulse8 (http://www.Pulse8.com) brings its independent and unbiased expertise to risk adjustment and revenue management for healthcare audiences in a webinar titled “Innovate or Disintegrate! Take Action or Watch Your Margins Erode”.
Date: May 13, 2014 at 1:30 PM. - 2:30 PM ET
Location: Online Webinar
Presented by John Criswell, CEO and Dr. Christopher Vojta, Chief Medical Officer
The risk-adjustment industry has opportunities to improve how it targets specific members and providers who are likely to have high-value documentation gaps. More importantly, the industry can become more efficient by focusing on those gaps that are unlikely to close naturally. For example, many documentation gaps close with the member’s next office visit.
There are four major innovations from which plans can improve their targeting and efficiency:
1. "Big data" and non-traditional data sources;
2. Modern informatics and analytical tools;
3. Real-time data processing and business intelligence; and
4. Opportunities to incorporate insights at the point of care
These strategies offer health plans an opportunity to create innovative, yet achievable, objectives. Just as inefficient and wasteful civilizations often disintegrate into the annals of history, health plans need to innovate in order to survive.
This webinar will detail the problems and current approaches related to Medicare and Commercial Risk- Assessment and discuss how leveraging innovative technology can provide better, faster, and less costly risk-scoring. Ultimately, these insights will help you: know how to innovate in your Data Analytics Department; determine where, when, and how to take action with your targeting; and protect your margins, through optimal risk adjustment at the point of care.
