The use of near real-time patient health records from EMRs along with financial claims data, allows administrators, physicians and clinicians to understand the total cost drivers associated with patient care across the continuum-of-care.
Allen, TX (PRWEB) August 04, 2012
PSCI Solutions will deliver a webinar for health care providers committed to understanding data-driven analytics in the era of accountable care. An innovative provider of advanced quality analytics and decision support technologies, PSCI’s webinar will demonstrate the solutions developed working hand in hand with leading healthcare providers, medical homes and accountable care organizations (ACOs) for population care management.
The webinar titled “Data-driven analytics in the era of accountable care” will focus on how the shift from a volume-driven system to value-based has increased the need for population care management processes to support evidence-based, high-quality, efficient patient-centered care. Further it will delve into how EMR-based outcome predictive modeling is used to stratify population risk based on patients’ state-of-health and how proactive care management programs and preventive care can be used to bend cost and quality curves across the continuum-of-care. Steve Dobbs, FACHE , CEO of Urologic Associates of Oklahoma is a guest presenter along with Kirit Pandit, Co-founder of PSCI Solutions.
Mr. Dobbs brings more than 30 years of professional health care experience, and most recently was the Chief Executive Officer of Hillcrest Medical Center, a part of Ardent Health Systems, Nashville, TN. More notably, under Dobbs’ leadership, Hillcrest Medical Center was selected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Service to participate in CMS’ demonstration project for Acute Care Episode bundled payment for cardiology and orthopedic services. This achievement was primarily due to the hospital’s outstanding levels of quality of care and patient benefit.
Mr. Dobbs states this webinar is centered around addressing the current trends of the healthcare industry today. He says “Of particular importance in recent years is this idea of monitoring the population state of health performance and how then to link it to pay-for-performance programs in improving overall healthcare provider performance to meet Triple objectives.”
Kirit Pandit, co-presenter and author of “Spend analysis: A Window to strategic Sourcing” is an industry expert in data analytics. Mr. Pandit says “The use of near real-time patient health records from EMRs along with financial claims data, allows administrators, physicians and clinicians to understand the total cost drivers associated with patient care across the continuum-of-care. What we’re sharing in this informative webinar are ways to dramatically impact the healthcare cost and quality curves to improve quality of care and lower healthcare costs.”
The upcoming webinar is the second in a five part webinar series directed at the healthcare industry to illustrate how a groundbreaking data analytics and decision support solution can be used to improve health outcomes and lower healthcare costs.
