Sustainable Population Health: One Health System's Journey

3:00pm - 4:00pm Tuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Sands Show Room

Description

Effective population health management comes down to two issues: scale and value. A strategic view is needed to transition from volume-based fee-for-service to value. Successful organizations will evolve from limited-scale population health programs to general adoption of effective business models that drive value-based care. From a single program that started five years ago to manage ischemic heart disease, Christiana Care Health System has evolved its clinical and financial risk capabilities to successfully manage the care of 200,000 members and patients. Led by Christiana Care Health System’s Chief Health Information Officer, this session will pick up where the popular 2016 HIMSS presentation, “The Evolution of Population Health Management” left off, pinpointing key steps Christiana Care Health System took to evolve from the concept of population health for a single patient population into a mature business model that’s delivering lasting change.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the IT components and data sources necessary to create and sustain a modern, technology-driven care management model
  • Define the staff skill sets required to administer a care management model that allows health systems to successfully assume commercial and government risk-based contracts
  • Adapt traditional, retrospective care management workflows by using data and technology to optimize proactive patient interventions — even for evolving patient populations, including complex government beneficiaries
  • Design workflows that leverage both risk scores and health event data to help care managers effectively identify “rising risk” patients most in need of proactive interventions
  • Assess how technology-driven care management can help health systems sustainably lower costs, raise care quality and improve the patient experience by enabling timely and effective patient contact
