About the Conference

Population health management is surging across the healthcare landscape in the effort to deliver the best patient care, enhance quality, implement preventative measures and reduce healthcare spending. Innovative processes have been implemented and are continuing to evolve and expand, including collaborative efforts between providers and payers. The current political landscape and new healthcare policies are challenging both providers and payers to continue to transform the nation's healthcare and maintain a healthy population. The keys to success are being shaped by the employment of technology and health information, innovative strategies in care coordination across the continuum of care, collaborative approaches, identifying high-risk populations, and integrating preventative measures.

Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies now being utilized to address the challenges presented under the current healthcare environment, impacting both providers and payers, in managing population health.

By attending the 2020 Population Health Management Congress for Health Plans & Hospitals you will learn what others in the population health management arena are doing to succeed in improving the nation's healthcare and its patient population.

Putting Digital Tools at the Fingertips of Pediatric Medicaid Patients

Boston Children’s Hospital launched their ACO almost two years ago with a goal of improving health outcomes while decreasing cost using digital tools over a three-year span. Within six months Boston Children’s formed governance committees and a strategy plan based on DSRIP funding from the state. Year 1 focused on improving virtual access to subspecialty and primary care as well as addressing SDOH through digital platforms of non-emergency medical transportation, Year 2 focused on virtual integration of behavioral health services and automated care management for the second highest cohort of asthma patients and Year 3 is focusing on urgent care and remote monitoring. This session will explore the outcomes and lessons learned from the Year 1 initiatives, early findings for Year 2 and the goals projected for Year 3.

Telemedicine Interventions for Population Health

In the fee-for-service world health care delivery has traditionally been focused on the high cost hospitalized treatment of patients. Limited attention has been paid to population healthcare screening and preventative health care interventions. This session will review identifying patient populations who will benefit from digital health interventions, as well as understand how this information can be collected, filtered and presented to practitioners so that interventions can be made in a meaningful way. The talk will also explore how these systems of care can be used to monitor and treat patients to reduce the need and frequency of hospitalizations and higher because procedures. This session will review how digital technologies can be used to identify and treat social issues affecting healthcare outcomes.

Leveraging Data and Analytics to Identify and Manage High Risk Patients

This session will discuss leveraging data and analytics to identify and manage high-risk patient populations. The talk will explore utilizing Data to understand your population, and when and how to use data to manage high-risk patients. The presentation will also discuss risk stratification methods and how to drive data to the providers and care team members in a meaningful way.

Addressing the Challenges of Social Determinants of Health

There are many factors that impact a person’s health beyond traditional medical care. These Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) can range from job security and education to having access to healthy food and transportation and play a critical role in overall health outcomes and total cost of care. Providing whole-person care is fundamental to managing population health. This presentation explores Advocate Aurora Health’s journey to tackle SDoH and provide whole-person care while using an innovative solution to “prescribe” community resources for patients with unmet SDOH needs. Learn from an advanced ACO, Advocate Physician Partners, on their partnership with technology to empower Care Managers and Community Health Workers with a mobile-enabled messaging, screening, and referral platform called NowPow.

Optimizing Care Across the Continuum to Optimize Population Health

Improving the health of our communities isn’t something that can be accomplished by one single entity.

This presentation will describe the approach taken to address these barriers. The talk will discuss Humana’s integration across its internal enterprise as well as the work with community partners and local universities. By focusing on whole-person health and working together we will make an impact.

8:15am – 9:00am

Designing Geriatric Population Management Initiatives Within A Large Integrated Health System

Seniors are living longer than ever before and are the fastest growing segment in this country. As they age, seniors are experiencing healthcare that is expensive, unhelpful, and confusing. It is imperative that health systems respond to these trends by creating population management strategies that ensure elders receive care in line with their personal values, and in a way that expects and respects the aging and dying process. Allina Health in Minneapolis, MN has been on a journey to create a system of care that interrupts the typical course of care for the elderly. This talk will describe the challenges and successes in developing and launching a geriatric population management program as part of a hospital-based system.

Improving Population Health Through A Spine Continuum of Care Pathway

Spine related disorders are costing our society more than $50billion per year in direct costs alone, with disability and impairment costing 1 to 5 times that much. We see wide variation in care, guideline discordant care and a ’supermarket’ of treatment options available. This talk will address how spine pain has been regarded as one of the top 4 most burdensome conditions in the US. The session will explore recent efforts to bring value (better outcomes at better cost) to the delivery of spine services includes utilization of a continuum of care pathway: a best evidence guide, coordination of care, enhanced communication, monitoring of outcomes, process and patient satisfaction, focus on 'first touch’, resource allocation and support for sustainability, implementation strategies. A successful model of a community-based spine continuum of care pathway to improve population health will be described.

Workshop – Tuesday, March 24, 2020

12:45pm – 2:45pm

The Future of Population Health Management Practices in the New Era of Health Reform

The workshop will explore the ways in which population health leaders must characterize their efforts in terms that make business sense to their leaders, peers, board members and constituencies, recognizing the changing landscape of payment methodology, local market competition, healthcare system consolidation, consumerism and quality and price transparency. Many in healthcare are waiting for more obvious changes in payment methodologies before investing in robust population health management, while missing the subtle ways in which the landscape has already changed. We will explore the true value proposition of population health management in the modern era.
