    Assessing Risk, Informing Strategy:
    Using DxCG to Drive Effective Population Health

    Verscend’s DxCG Intelligence is the industry's "gold standard" for risk adjustment and predictive modeling, backed by 20 years of validated science. This session will explore unique applications of DxCG Intelligence that can benefit healthcare organizations as they engage in value-based care and risk-based payment models.
    For organizations that do not have access to a complete set of claims data, applying DxCG models to billing data can provide critical insights as they prepare for risk-based contracts. This session will showcase the application of DxCG models with billing data for population risk analysis.
    This session will also explore advanced applications of DxCG models to measure risk trends and shifts. This includes the use of DxCG risk score validation and population stability index to identify abnormal shifts in population risk and disease burden. It also includes the use of DxCG to understand changes in risk scores over time.

    Data Visualization Best Practices

    Please join HealthData Viz for this presentation on the best practices of data visualization. During this interactive session we will share examples of how health and healthcare organizations like yours are using these best practices to create dashboards and reports that make the opportunities for improvement clear and move people to take action. 

    What does it take to help organizations see how they’re doing?

    Three things:

    • Richer information design – This is not about converting spreadsheets into pie charts. It’s about designing more meaningful visualizations based on how people process information.
    • Healthcare fluency – it takes deep clinical and operational experience to put the right data in the picture. That’s why even top data visualization experts can struggle in the complex healthcare environment.
    • Mastery of the toolset – To create the right visualizations for your specific needs, the designers must know which tools to use and how to use them more effectively.

    These three things are why organizations such as Baylor Scott & White Health, Partners Healthcare, Cleveland Clinic, and the World Health organization all rely on HealthDataViz to train their teams and design, build and deploy dashboards and reports, which empower them to see how they’re doing.

    We hope you will join us for this fun and interactive session where we will also share our new turnkey service, HDViewPrints – a suite of dashboard and report blueprints you can purchase for rapid build and deployment projects.

    Healthcare’s Identity Crisis

    With increasing cybersecurity risks, financial implications, and patient safety at stake, how can hospital systems effectively manage identities and authentication pathways across the continuum of healthcare, for both providers and patients?

    • What are the key components for managing identity in healthcare?
    • How do biometrics factor into the equation?
    • Are cloud-based technologies and/or federated models necessary for success?
    • What are the implications for patient engagement?
    • What exactly are the most crucial components of patient engagement?
    • Where is the greatest potential value to healthcare organizations... improved provider efficiency? Revenue cycle? Patient safety and quality of care?
