    Beyond Compliance:
    Meeting Today’s Complex Strategic Priorities

    May 16, 2017 9:00 - 11:00 AM


    Presented by HealthNET Systems Consulting, Inc.

    Meaningful Use has demanded much of IT’s attention and resources in recent years, but meeting that challenge was relatively straight-forward and tactical in nature. Today, the market is accelerating its shift of financial risk to providers to “bend the cost curve,” raising the stakes to operate efficiently and effectively.

    Providers today require economies of scale to operate successfully, accelerating mergers and acquisitions and driving population health, big data and analytics, and data security.

    This acceleration to “value-based” care highlights major hurdles health information executives must clear, including:

    • Post-merger integration of disparate clinical and non-clinical systems, data centers and warehouses, and multiple, competing file-sharing and cloud services.
    • No integrated patient record across multiple inpatient and ambulatory settings.
    • New “macro” strategic priorities such coordinated care and population health management.
    • Keeping up with proliferating technology products & services (e.g., business intelligence, analytics, mobile device management, the cloud, FHIR and other interoperability innovations).
    • Securing the organization’s data and reducing exposure to risk.
    • Limited, if any, additional funds.

    Presenters:

    Join Clifton Jay and Mary Ann Keane from HealthNET Systems Consulting, Inc. for this mini-workshop on developing sustainable IT strategies that meet these challenges.

    CIO Breakfast Forum

    May 17, 2017
    Breakfast is served starting 7:00 AM

    Meeting 8:00 - 10:00 AM

    (By invitation only)


    U.S. healthcare payers are at a crossroads. Down one path lies a future of increasing obsolescence as cost-constrained, behind-the-scenes claims adjudicators. Down the other is a future of growth and profit from consumers willingly rewarding their business to organizations that deliver measurable health value and satisfying experiences.

    Many forces are aligned against payers' financial prospects, including provider consolidation, regulatory and purchaser pressure, increasing care demand and options, and a legacy of high administrative complexity and cost. Incrementally addressing these requirements won't deliver the new capabilities required to support a more consumer-oriented, value-based model. Nothing short of a strategic transformation toward orchestrating, and monetizing, health-value is needed to revive and solidify payers' prominent role in the healthcare market.

    Brad Holmes, Managing Vice President of the Gartner Group, will be leading our discussion.

    What we will learn:

    • The trends and drivers forcing payers' strategic options

    • Innovations needed to deliver health value to consumers

    • Examples of emerging best practices you can adopt to advance your strategy

    Brad Holmes is a Managing Vice President with Gartner's Healthcare and Life Sciences Industry Research Team.

    Brad manages the Healthcare Payer Industry Research subteam and is working for healthcare payers and providers on strategically navigating their digital business future in dynamic healthcare markets globally.

    Care and Feeding of an ACO with Practical Health Information Exchange

    May 25, 2017 9:00 - 11:00 AM


    Presented by Massachusetts e-Health Collaborative

    Accountable care activity is growing rapidly. So too is health information exchange.  Unfortunately, ACO and interoperability strategy and implementation are too often taking place in isolation from each other. This represents a huge missed opportunity because an ACO will starve without effective clinical interoperability, and clinical interoperability may be wasted effort if it isn’t designed to drive ACO value drivers.

    In this session Micky Tripathi will discuss key trends in ACOs and interoperability across the country and in Massachusetts and describe specific projects that are being undertaken by the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative in this area.

    The session will focus on:

    • Trends in ACO and clinical interoperability
    • ACO requirements for health information exchange
    • Health information exchange transactions to support ACO enablement
    • Specific examples from across the nation and Massachusetts

    Introducing the Massachusetts Digital Health Initiative
    June 8, 2017 9:00 - 11:00 AM


    Presented by Massachusetts eHealth Institute

    Last year, Governor Charlie Baker announced the launch of the state’s Digital Health Initiative and established the Massachusetts Digital Healthcare Council, bringing together public, private, academic, and healthcare leaders to build a stronger and more connected statewide digital health ecosystem. The Massachusetts eHealth Institute, MeHI, supports the Council and advises on the strategic priorities of the Initiative.

    In this session, Laurance Stuntz, MeHI’s Director, will discuss the goals and programs of the Digital Health Initiative. Digital health, or eHealth, is among the fastest growing industry sectors in the country, encompassing products and services that use information technology to improve healthcare delivery, efficiency, and quality. Massachusetts is positioned at the forefront of this growth and has one of the strongest digital health clusters of any state in the U.S., offering unparalleled opportunities for startups and large firms alike. To support growth of this cluster, MeHI is developing a Healthcare Data Initiative, a Marketplace Program, and has provided grant funding to launch PULSE@MassChallenge, the Commonwealth’s digital health innovation lab. Join this session to learn more about the work of the Digital Health Initiative and ways to get involved.
