The Business of Caring: Increasing Value Through Outcomes-Based Staffing
The linkage between nursing care and patient outcomes is widely accepted, yet it is often difficult to achieve an evidence-based allocation of nursing resources that is understood and accepted by all. Join representatives from HFMA, AONL, and ANA in an exploration of the evolution from conventional, quasi-adversarial nursing/finance working relationships to patients-first interprofessional collaboration. Walk away with a collaborative action plan to improve nursing resource allocation and thereby improve the value of care that patients receive.
Centralized vs. decentralized data analytics organization structures: A question of ownership
Often contentious, the ownership and responsibility for data analytics is often up to debate as healthcare organizations transition from traditional reporting to advanced predictive and prescriptive analytics.
Examining the path to recovery for hospital volumes and revenues
As states loosen and lift their "shelter in place" orders and restrictions on hospital elective procedures, hospital volumes will begin to return. The question is: What will the recovery look like? Ensemble Partners and SSI Group have joined forces to examine the available data; by combining hospital volume and revenue data with procedure rescheduling data from over 1,200 hospitals, we are gaining insights on what the recovery will look like. We will look at which states are showing early upward trends, which procedures are returning and how quickly, and how you can leverage these trends to accelerate recovery back to "normal."

How to connect financial results with clinical outcomes
Most healthcare provider organizations perform patient accounting transactions and general accounting transactions in separate systems. Even though recent advances in technology have increased the opportunity to collect patient level activity data at the time of resource utilization, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications have traditionally focused more on resource procurement and maintenance, than resource utilization. For reason this reason, it continues to be difficult to accurately connect financial results with clinical outcomes.
This webinar will discuss how healthcare organizations can better leverage data about patient activities and resource utilization to overcome the challenge of connecting financial results to clinical outcomes.
