Share Article

During this complimentary webinar from AIS Health and 3M Health Information Systems, participants will learn how to manage variation using risk adjustment to improve health care value.

AIS Health and 3M Health Information Systems are pleased to announce “Managing Variation in Health Care: The Unique Role of Risk Adjustment,” a complimentary June 15 webinar. In this hour-long program, L. Gordon Moore, M.D., Senior Medical Director of Clinical Strategy & Value Based Care at 3M, and Consultant Erika Johnson will discuss how to use risk adjustment to reveal variation — the difference between the quality and utilization rates you can expect (expected rate) and the rates that actually occur (observed rates) — and how that variation impacts payment rates and performance goals.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • How understanding variability can help form strategies and tactics to impact outcomes
  • What goes into calculating an expected rate
  • How expected rates are used to develop budgets and determine key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • How to monitor performance against a budget and KPIs to unmask variability
