The Secret to Finding the True Cost of a Single Patient Case

Audience: Webinars

Tuesday 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
DATE & TIME
Tuesday, June 6 ? 2:00 ? 3:00 p.m., CDT
SPEAKERS
Tushar Pandey
VP of Decision Support
Strata Decision Technology
Suzanne Wojtowicz
Director of Financial Planning and Analysis
Augusta University Health System

Jennifer Smith
Assistant Vice President of Planning and Design and Construction
Augusta University Health System

SUMMARY
Two years ago, finance leaders at Augusta University Health System were eager to make their decision-support processes more efficient and powerful. This was critical as the Augusta, Ga.-based organization was undergoing a transformation, including a name change (the health system was formerly known as Georgia Regents Health) and planning for a future expansion. Such large-scale change required leaders to lean on their data so they could confidently plan for the future. But that confidence was lacking, as financial planning and analysis, including decision support, was broken into silos, and reports crunched by different teams sometimes revealed different data.

Join this webinar where you will learn how by integrating case cost data with financial data, Augusta can now gain a clear picture of the true cost of a single patient case and how you can implement this at your organization.
AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU'LL BE ABLE TO:
Use data to understand pharmacy costs.
Standardize service definitions across the organization.
Accurately attribute labor and equipment costs to specific surgeries.
Elevate transparency to the entire organization around case cost data.

Minimizing the Financial Risk of Value-Based Reimbursement by Increasing Effecti

Audience: Webinars

Thursday 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
DATE & TIME
Thursday, June 15 ? 2:00 ? 3:00 p.m., CDT
SPEAKERS
Rick Ingraham
Director, Health Care Delivery & Payment
LexisNexis Health Care

Erin Benson
Director, Market Planning
LexisNexis Health Care

SUMMARY
The medical and research communities have established valuable insights into social determinants of health (SDOH). Until recently, the healthcare delivery system has struggled to leverage these insights into changes directly affecting care provided. Since our nation holds a vast amount of socioeconomic public records, these records may hold the key to aligning care to a patient?s negative or positive SDOHs. Through the creation of clinically-validated health attributes from socioeconomic data, health risk scores now enable improved patient outreach. With shifts to value-based reimbursement incentives, the time is ripe to embrace enhanced patient outreach that may impact quality and outcomes.

This webinar outlines a data-driven provider business model impacting the quality of patient interaction, the effectiveness of care coordination, and accuracy of revenue forecasting, while minimizing disruptions to direct care delivery.
AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU'LL BE ABLE TO:
Convert social determinants of health data into a tool that minimizes care delivery payment risk.
Move beyond the medical record to administratively impact care outcomes.
Increase your insight into the surrounding variables impacting a patient?s likelihood to require increased levels of care.
Leverage health risk scores to empower patient engagement and care coordination staff with patient-specific opportunity plans for health improvement.
Apply lessons learned from health risk attribute scoring.
RECOMMENDED FOR:
CEOs, CFOs, directors of revenue cycle, physicians or clinical leaders, physician practice executives, health plan leaders, patient liaison and knowledge officers, health plan contracting officers
