“Managing 600+ EHR Instances in One of the World’s Most Diverse Cities” (Session #65)

SOMOS Community Care

Few healthcare organizations support populations as diverse as the community of Queens in New York City where many languages may be spoken, but many organizations struggle to manage a highly diverse technology ecosystem with several, dozens, or even hundreds of EHRs.  Our customer SOMOS Community Care does both. One of the largest IPAs in the U.S., their network of 2,500 providers delivers patient-centered, culturally-sensitive care for 650,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in New York City.

The 600+ physician offices are independent and have individual EHR instances, and SOMOS wanted to adapt to the cultural and technical diversity of the practices rather than force everyone onto a standard. In a case study useful for any multi-EHR system, SOMOS clinical and technical leaders will explain how their cloud-based approach to bringing the network together enabled real-time analytics of large populations and continuity of care management at unprecedented scales.

SOMOS Community Care, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM, Room W314B.  Learn more.

Case: Building a Quality-Driven Narrow SNF Network (Session #135)

CareMount Medical ACO

CareMount ACO, a physician-owned multi-specialty medical group currently participating as a Medicare Next Generation ACO in the Hudson Valley, explains how they developed and financed a narrow Preferred Provider Network of high-quality skilled nursing facility (SNF), home health and other ancillary providers. The ACO spends ~20% of its $300M in total medical premium on post-acute and ancillary settings, and transient Medicare FFS patients were being discharged to 200 SNFs with high variability in quality, length of stay, cost and readmission rates. CareMount physicians narrowed the network, negotiating preferential pricing with the highest quality SNFs.

CareMount will explain how to (1) use a Medicare Next Gen ACO contract to finance this network development strategy, (2) run a competitive contracting and bid process, (3) design an incentive payment program and (4) implement the infrastructure required for effective care coordination and quality management across settings.

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM, Room W315A.  Learn more. 

Predictive Analytics for Data-Driven Care Management (Session #159)

Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization

Beth Israel Deaconess Care Organization (BIDCO) is a leading, value-based accountable care organization with 2,500+ physicians caring for 200,000+ patients in the greater Boston area under five risk-based contracts. BIDCO had a vision for a care management program that would use predictive analytics to identify patients most likely to benefit; provide tools to ensure thorough, consistent patient assessment and care planning; and automate workflows to help nurses operate at the top of their licensure.

To realize that clinical vision, BIDCO leveraged its information and technology investment in an enterprise clinical data asset and its expertise in designing data-driven clinical workflows. In this case study, BIDCO’s CMO and CIO will explain how their IT-clinical partnership enabled them to roll out an innovative, analytics-driven approach to care management.

2:30 PM – 3:30 PM, Room W208C.  Learn more.

  • 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM, Booth #2915: Learn more about how Arcadia Analytics helps healthcare organizations across the country drive outcomes in value based care.
  • 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM, Room W206A: Steward Health Care Network presents at a general education session on “Patient-Centered Referral Workflow Automation” (Session #260)
  • 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM, SeaWorld: Invitation-only VIP Cocktail Reception at the exclusive HIMSS SeaWorld event

Patient-Centered Referral Workflow Automation (Session #260)

Steward Health Care Network

Steward Health Care is the largest private, for-profit healthcare system in the United States, with 4,800 providers, 38 hospital campuses and 25 affiliated urgent care provider locations. Steward is community-based and physician-led with 40,000+ employees in 10 states caring for 2+ million patients. Steward’s primary care providers generate hundreds of thousands of specialist referrals annually. Those referrals had been processed directly with payers or sent to the Steward Referral Team via emails, fax, portals and spreadsheets in a multi-step process that administratively burdened already busy primary care staff.

Referrals are an important part of the care coordination – so key to improving patient care.  Steward needed to make referral management easier for providers and better serve its patients by matching them with specialists near their homes with availability. Steward will share how automated referral workflows improved efficiency, care coordination and patient satisfaction.

2:30 PM – 3:30 PM, Room W206A.  Learn more. VIP Cocktail Reception
