Finding Meaningful Measurement in the Mayhem

Speakers

Leading US Companies Join Healthcare Transformation Alliance to Change the Way Employers Purchase Healthcare

Speaker: To Be Announced Soon

Many would argue that the biggest healthcare game changers will come from employers purchasing healthcare differently. There is no group being more closely watched in this space than the Health Transformation Alliance. With over thirty of America’s largest corporations, they plan to find a better way of providing healthcare to their employees to create better health care outcomes and reduce waste. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear about their bold and aggressive plans.

Implementing and Sustaining Alternative Payment Models

François de Brantes, MS, MB, Executive Director, Health Care Incentives Improvement Institute, Inc.  

In this talk, Mr. de Brantes will review the current state of deployment of Alternative Payment Models (APMs) by the Federal Government, States and private sector payers and purchasers. Attendees will learn about the important lessons learned in implementing APMs, the critical role that market forces can play when used to improve the quality and affordability of health care, and how private sector employers can accelerate the pace of change in the industry.

Is 2017 the Quiet Before the Healthcare Storm?

Steve M. Berkowitz, MD, Founder and President, SMB Health Consulting

Dr. Steve Berkowitz will discuss how transparency and consumerism are shaping new changes in healthcare. He will also show how other industries have achieved success without bricks and mortar and how this can be applied to healthcare. Dr. Berkowitz describes cost as the silent “high blood pressure” indicator of healthcare which could have disastrous outcomes if not abated.

Colorado’s Pioneer All Payers Claims Database (APCD) and Its Results

Jonathan D. Mathieu, Ph.D., VP of Research & Compliance and Chief Economist, Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC)

Dr. Jonathan Mathieau will discuss how Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC) is driving improved health, enhanced quality, and lower costs in Colorado through their All Payer Claims Database. CIVHC offers the state’s most comprehensive health care cost, quality, and utilization claims data and brings together a broad spectrum of organizations and individuals to design and drive collective change. Is an APCD a missing piece of healthcare improvement in Kentucky?

M. Robin DiMatteo, PhD, Distinguished Emerita Professor of Psychology, Univ. of CA, Riverside

Dr. DiMatteo will discuss essential elements of benefits design and healthcare delivery including effective communication, improvement of the healthcare experience, consumer empowerment, engagement, shared decision making, cultural humility, and attention to health literacy. She will describe how Information, Motivation, and Strategic Change are key factors in the achievement of health goals for all, including those from vulnerable populations.
