About the Conference

In an effort to improve healthcare quality and outcomes for both patients and healthcare professionals alike, we are seeing a dynamic shift to Value Based Healthcare. As we have seen that healthcare is an integral system, we have also seen the need for the standardization of healthcare processes and practices and the need for a proactive approach to healthcare. As we shift away from a traditional reactive model of healthcare, which strongly encompasses a fee for service approach, value-based healthcare focuses on improving patient outcomes, reducing overall healthcare costs, encouraging coordination with healthcare professionals, and enabling patients to have a better quality of life. As these methodologies are adapted, there is a need to understand how we can shift our current methodologies to encompass these processes.

Business Research Intelligence Network’s Value-Based Healthcare congress will have substantial and relevant dialogue surrounding healthcare’s shift to a value based model led by industry thought-leaders, who are familiar and equipped to provide insight on the outlook of Value Based Care. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about practices and procedures that have been implemented to adhere to a Value Based model, and ways in which other health-care professionals and providers have achieved maximum efficiency with this model. This event provides an opportunity to connect with industry leaders and gain key-insights and educational content for senior-level executives.

7:15am – 8:00am
Conference Registration & Continental Breakfast

8:00am – 8:15am
Opening Remarks

8:15am – 9:00am
Value Based Healthcare – Needed More Than Ever

As we saw a global need for healthcare within the past year, preventive care became a popular topic of conversation. As we see that plans should be in place to combat issues before they arise. How will this transform the nature of Value-Based Healthcare, as well as the demand for it?

Phyllis Chambers-Berry, DNP, RN, NE-BC
President/ Chief Nursing Officer
Forrest General Hospital

9:00am – 9:45am
Digital Support & Data-Driven Tools to Support Medical Professionals

While Value Based Healthcare gains more traction, ensuring that medical professionals are equipped with tools and capabilities to support this model is an enigma that is a work in progress. This presentation will focus on how data-driven insights can identify care gaps and clinical opportunities, monitor impact of new workflows and care models, and aid organizations in alleviating spending and utilization rates.

9:45am-10:15am
Mid-Morning Break

10:15am – 11:00am
Social determinants correlation with Value-Based Healthcare

An increasingly prominent issue within traditional health-care models, is the inability to address social determinants’ impact on overall health. This session will explore how non-medical factors can impact health and ways in which value-based healthcare can utilize these considerations to enable efficient care.

Alvia Siddiqi, MD, FAAFP
VP Population Health
Advocate Aurora Health

Felix Aguilar

11:00am-11:45am
Reducing Gaps with Home Health Care Providers and Agencies

As more home health care providers shift to a value-based system, stark disparities have been uncovered when it comes to quality and efficiency with both health care providers and agencies. As more home health, hospice and personal care providers shift to a Value Based Purchasing model, How can they overcome some of the roadblocks that may arise between large providers and smaller agencies?

11:45am – 12:30pm
Provider Alignment: How to Mitigate Pain Points

Defining optimal strategies to appropriately align providers and physicians can be a strenuous task. This presentation will focus on the inter-polarity of ensuring providers and physicians are aligned to support health care system goals, overall satisfaction of patients, and create mutual success. We will also discuss steps that can aid in the reduction of pain points when pivoting to a value-based model.

12:30pm – 1:30pm
Lunch

1:30pm-2:15pm
Alternative Payment Options with Value Based Healthcare

Unlike traditional healthcare models that pay providers retrospectively with a fee-for-service approach, Value Based Healthcare works to compensate providers on patient outcomes. During this session, we will investigate alternative payment models such as Value-Based purchasing, Pay-for-Performance, and Bundles Payments.

Robert London, MD
President
Scicon Health

2:15pm – 3:00pm
Value Based Insurance Designs & Employers

As health care benefit plans align their policies to closer adopt processes that resemble Value Based procedures, How can employers find a plan that is suitable for their team? What are key indicators to consider when purchasing plans and how can businesses ensure they are meeting the needs and expectations of their teams?

Reducing Provider Burn-Out in a Value Based Model

Despite improvements in the alleviation of provider burnout under a value-based model, it has not been completely eradicated, and key factors can enable burnout in physicians utilizing this model. This presentation will focus on practices that physicians can implement to reduce burdens that enable physician burn-out such as monotonous bureaucratic tasks, lack of support at a stake-holder level, and lack of patient cooperation.

Lisa Masson, MD, MBA, FAAFP, FAMIA
Medical Director
Cedars-Sinai Enterprise Information Systems

5:00pm – 5:45pm: Declining Reimbursement Rates

With a shift to value-based reimbursement models, financial implications have followed suit. Many CFO’s and financial executives have expressed hesitation when adopting this model because of finite resources when it comes to their current financial planning and processing tools. This session will focus on adjustments to current financial strategies and how the shift to a value-based model can be achieved with strategic adjustments.

The Optimal Care Model – An Ambulatory Model That Combines Evidence and Technology to Drive Quality and Eliminate Low Value Care

Outpatient care and Value Based Models aim to diminish the burden of costs on providers and     patients alike. How can ambulatory services adopt policies that align with a value based model, and how can they work to team with appropriate providers and agencies?

8:50am-9:30am
Increasing Engagement with Stakeholders
Stakeholders’ perception of value-based models can differ based on what their perceived objectives are. Many stakeholders are concerned with bottom line initiatives that can be performed at the lowest cost possible while maintaining overall patient health. With value-based models being a newer approach, many stakeholders can tread lightly with adopting and backing this design. How can this model be beneficial to health-care’s overall bottom line, and how can relationships between physicians and stakeholders be nurtured to find commonality within these initiatives?

Conference Workshop Session

Payment Accuracy in Value-based Contracting Arrangements

Contracts that pay for financial performance are subject to model risk, i.e. the probability that the calculated savings will deviate from the actual savings created.  Such deviation can occur stochastically or because a value-based contracting model has been poorly designed. To estimate the degree of model risk inherent in a design, providers’ and health plans’ value-based contracts should quantify the potential variance in outcomes in a naïve population prior to intervention.  We will discuss the degree of inherent risk and the components that could affect outcomes of a value-based financial arrangement, illustrating with examples of maternity episodes and a type 2 diabetes program.  We provide a framework to quantify pricing model error and will discuss risk-mitigation strategies to reduce model error.
