HIMSS16: Revenue Cycle Improvement, Performance Management & Clinical Data Infrastructure, Oh My!

This week, 43,000 healthcare industry experts, from CEOs to clinicians and IT professionals, will descend into Las Vegas for the HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, the largest event in the health information technology field in the U.S.

From meeting and networking with health IT expects to keynotes from Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Secretary of Health & Human Services, and Peyton Manning, Quarterback for the Denver Broncos, MedeAnalytics is looking forward to the action packed and educational event.

We are also excited for the 300 educational sessions that will be presented during the week, including three from MedeAnalytics’ own customers: Baptist Health System, Jersey City Medical Center and the Mississippi Division of Medicaid (Mississippi DOM). These clients will address their successes with revenue cycle improvement, enterprise performance management and the implementation of clinical data infrastructure.

Mark your calendars for these sessions:

Mississippi Division of Medicaid will share challenges and success stories from the implementation of clinical data infrastructure components such as a MPI, clinical data repository (CDR) and Provider Portal. Chris Smith, Clinical Data Interoperability Program Manager for the DOM, will share ongoing and future planned Medicaid strategic clinical data integrations with external stakeholders (State HIE) and provider clinical systems (Electronic Health Records, Laboratory Information Systems, etc.).

  • Date and Time: March 1, 2016 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. PT
  • Location: Sands Expo Convention Center, Lando 4205

Jersey City Medical Center, a Barnabas Health facility, will discuss how the health system combined data, analytics and enterprise performance management to create a closed-loop solution that improved care metric performance and accountability. During this session, Joseph Scott, President and CEO of JCMC, will outline how they emerged from the verge of bankruptcy to a multi-million dollar positive revenue while improving patient care. They have since been awarded the prestigious Vision of Performance Excellence Award (VoPE), which is the state level of the Malcolm Baldrige Award. 

  • Date and Time: March 3, 2016 from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. PT
  • Location: Sands Expo Convention Center, Marcello 4404

Baptist Health System, one of the largest healthcare systems in Alabama, will discuss how they improved their revenue cycle with new processes and analytics technology to address several major changes impacting their organization, including an EHR system conversion and the state’s decision to opt out of Medicaid expansion. Rosh Plugge, Director, Revenue Systems and Controls, and Pete Welch, Senior Analyst of Revenue Systems, at Baptist Health System will address these circumstances and how they improved the revenue cycle while maintaining positive patient satisfaction.

  • Date and Time: March 4, 2016 from 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. PT
