Bridging silos for value based care: Data interoperability and the management of a Medicare Advantage population


In this joint presentation from Humana and their subsidiary, Transcend Insights, attendees will gain insight into how a major health plan currently receives/delivers healthcare data in a (lacking interoperability) environment and what developments to prioritize to create interoperability going forward. You'll examine interoperability through the lens of managing a Medicare Advantage plan population, discover the importance of interoperability (including the challenges it poses to delivering value based care), and review approaches a health plan organization has employed to work around current data silos and mitigate their development going forward.
After this program, you'll be able to..
  • Explain the general technical concepts of healthcare data interoperability and the importance interoperability plays in orchestrating value-based care
  • Explore particular challenges and solutions specific to Medicare Advantage plan population health management

Costing for the masses

CHRISTUS began an initiative to address the need for accurate, actionable cost information that could inform the organization's understanding of true cost across episodes of care, service lines, and patient populations. Over the past 14 months, CHRISTUS has engaged and trained over 140 RVU managers and 60 active reporting users to be part of this new costing initiative. Managing a large user base comes with its own set of challenges, including maintaining data integrity, improving user base acumen, providing training, reducing redundant requests, and getting buy-in from clinical operators. With a creative approach, CHRISTUS has driven new, thoughtful best practices and processes. The organization has successfully established a new, reliable data governance structure, empowering cross-organizational audiences like supply chain and clinical leaders to champion the data. By implementing this initiative, CHRISTUS has connected data to users who need it, enabling true costing for the masses.
