  On Demand  Journey to High Value Healthcare: Clinical Information for Accountable Care

Educational Grant From Amerinet
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care (PPACA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Acts are inextricably linked by placing electronic health records and the exchange of clinical information front and center in efforts to transform the healthcare industry. New models of reimbursement and care delivery such as Accountable Care Organizations, Patient Centered Medical Homes and Chronic Care Networks will depend on information to support reporting requirements, quality measurement and cost management. Today, most providers do not have the organizational skills and capabilities to manage large scale care delivery model redesign and clinical transformation initiatives of magnitude needed. This presentation will focus on what Boards and CEOs need to know to understand the strategic implications of HITECH and its linkage to PPACA, assess the readiness of their organizations to become meaningful users of EHRs, and understand the long term information capabilities needed to enable significant and measureable improvements in population health through a transformed healthcare delivery system.
  • Describe the changing role of Information Technology in evolving reimbursement and care delivery models such as ACOs.
  • Provide Boards and CEOs a checklist for assessing HITECH Readiness.
  • Discuss the critical success factors required for a high value healthcare.
  • Describe the role of emerging HIT essentials: Medical Trading Area Health Information Exchange, Personal Health Records, Disease Management Tools, Business Intelligence, etc.
  • Provide recommended action steps for Boards and CEOs.
