On Friday, April 29, our clients will be presenting at this year’s 7th Annual Becker’s Hospital Review Meeting at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois. Here’s a breakdown: Dr. Joseph Scott, FACHE, President and CEO of Jersey City Medical Center (JCMC) will present on our closed-loop performance management solution. Dr. Richard Boehler, MD, MBA, FACPE, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Joseph Hospital/Covenant Health will discuss the implementation of our employee-based population health management solution.
The first session taking place from 2:30-3:10 pm CT will be hosted by Joseph Scott who will cover how JCMC was able to rise to the top 10 percent nationally in care metrics using a closed-loop performance management solution. Utilizing this solution enabled them to do the following:
- Identify areas or departments that could benefit from a standardized workflow approach across the hospital
- Improve planning and execution cycles on care metrics for key organization goals
- Create streamlined processes for collecting and reporting real-time metrics
Joseph Scott will discuss how the success helped the hospital define complex systematic objectives and distill them down to concrete tasks and accountability measures, along with reducing process time by 50 percent to achieve internal target goals for the hospital. He will speak about how JCMC earned the prestigious Vision of Performance Excellence Award, a state level Baldrige award.
The second session taking place from 4:15-4:55 pm CT, hosted by Dr. Richard Boehler, will focus on how St. Joseph Hospital/Covenant Health implemented an employee-based population health management solution as a step towards Accountable Care. This strategy allowed them to do the following:
- Identify how analytics enhances population health management and its role in creating a cost-effective, value-based care system
- Share insights on plan usage and address costs of chronic conditions and outliers
- Outline ways hospital employers can go beyond traditional employee wellness programs
Dr. Boehler will discuss the benefits of starting an employee-based population health management program before expanding to a larger ACO model, along with ways hospital employers can go beyond behavioral and cultural changes among physicians and the employee patient population. He will also discuss how analytics allowed them to identify one of seven COPD patients responsible for $550k of the total $600k medical costs of COPD.
The upcoming 7th Annual Becker’s Hospital Review Meeting brings together hospital business and strategy leaders to discuss how to improve bottom line and address challenges that frequently come up. It is a unique opportunity for experts in the hospital field to discuss and provide practical and useful guidance on ACOs, physician-hospital integration and improving profitability.
