Hayes, Inc., a leader in promoting better health outcomes through the use of evidence, is hosting a one-hour live webinar on Thursday, May 9, 2013, at 1 pm ET. Reserve a seat now to hear Dee Donatelli, Senior Vice President, Provider Services at Hayes, Inc; Michael Louviere, System Vice President, System Chain, Ochsner Health System; and Dr. Philip M. Oravetz, Medical Director, Accountable Care, at Ochsner Health System explain how hospitals and healthcare systems can use a clinically driven process to evaluate healthcare purchases based on clinical effectiveness, patient safety, operational impact, and cost.
"Hospital CMOs Can Lead the Charge to Drive Out Costs" will show how to remove bias and other outside influences from the purchasing process and focus on evidence in relation to patient outcomes and operational efficiencies to improve utilization and decrease costs. The target audience for this webinar includes Chief Medical Officers, Chief Financial Officers, purchasing agents, value analysis and supply chain professionals, as well as physicians and other clinicians interested in learning how to manage utilization with an evidence-based process.
To make this webinar as practical as possible, the experts will use a case-based approach to demonstrate how hospitals have transformed their purchasing from price-based to evidence-based processes. The cases will illustrate how using such an approach to negotiate price allows organizations to maximize vendor contracts and drive down price while improving clinical value.
