2017 was a record year for M&A among health systems--and the trend shows no signs of slowing. As health systems continue to grow and evolve, understanding who is in their provider networks becomes even more critical to operating effectively as a system, driving growth and optimizing patient access. With consumers increasingly seeking provider information and appointments online, a reliable and complete view of the network is also foundational to enabling a health system’s digital transformation. Health systems can leverage centralized provider data to obtain a complete picture of their networks, identify gaps in coverage and power strategic initiatives around digital innovation and patient access. In this session, attendees will learn best practices for: a) gaining visibility into their provider networks b) powering their digital provider directories c) identifying and addressing key barriers to access d) driving consumer engagement through digital innovation.
