    Data Driven Value Based Care


    Driven by payers and the pandemic, the US health system is accelerating the adoption of Value Based Care (VBC).  The shift to VBC requires provider organizations to prioritize new operations such as team based care and patient engagement through technologies such as telehealth, push notifications, and remote patient monitoring. 

    Most pertinent to this audience, moving to VBC also requires organizations to manage data in a whole new way.  Please join us to learn more about these data challenges, learn about best practices, and learn about what we can expect for the future of VBC.

    Learning Objectives:

    • What exactly is Value Based Care (VBC) ?
    • What data considerations and challenges come with VBC?
    • Current State of VBC
    • What lies ahead for VBC

    How to Approach Healthcare Transformation Sparked by

    API Adoption 

    Point-of-Care Partners


    Interoperability isn’t just about technology. As the healthcare industry shifts to APIs, stakeholders across the ecosystem must assess and transition business processes as well.

    Workflows will be impacted not only by how stakeholders access data but by the volume of data and the type of data that may come available. These new data streams may very well change the fabric of how an organization approaches problem solving.

    Operationalizing all of these changes will be challenging in the best of circumstances, however if knowledge about interoperability is consolidated in a small number of people within an organization, it could be nearly impossible.

    This session will highlight key approaches organizations should take illustrated through recognizable scenarios, using emerging standards from across medical and pharmacy coverage and prior authorization as examples.  

     Lessons to be learned:  

    • Impact of wave of new and emerging standards and modern API technologies can impact your business processes and policies  
    • Importance in developing common frameworks and driving from strategic business priorities to determine where and how to get started. Considerations for how the shift to APIs may impact how your organizational functions and its approach to “technology” projects 
    • Best Practices for internal teams

    Decision Models and Technology in Psychiatry

    Brigham and Women's Hospital - Wikipedia


    This presentation will describe current and future directions of Brigham &Women's Hospital's Pain Intervention and Digital Research (Pain-IDR) Program.

    Overall, the Pain-IDR’s goal is to define quantitative phenotypes of chronic pain conditions.

    In particular, we seek to define clinically-relevant changes in functional status, an index of a patient’s physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.  

    By using brain-imaging, digital phenotypes, and electronic medical records we aim to define clinically-relevant decision models that improve the way we assess and treat patients with chronic pain conditions.
