Data-Driven Clinical Transformation in an Unhealthy Region

1:00pm - 2:00pm Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Value-based care can be a daunting change. It’s particularly true in the Southeast, ranked the least healthy U.S. area (1). Building on a partnership with a large Louisiana-based health plan, COSEHC leads a large practice transformation network, serving over two million people through 703 practice sites and 4,599 clinicians. (2) Leveraging actionable information, evidence-based guidelines and training, its PTN has become a CMS top performer. It shares challenges and successes in meeting or exceeding most chronic disease targets and saving millions by transforming patient- and family-centered care; data-driven quality improvement; and creating sustainable business operations. 1.
