2022 Population Health Management Congress for Health Plans & Hospitals








COVID-19 Advisory: BRI Network holds above all else, the health & safety of our attendees and their families. Currently this event is scheduled as an in-person event. We will however, continue to monitor and follow recommendations regarding capacity from CDC and other health agencies.

The nation’s healthcare ecosystem is continuing its Value Based Care approach to improve the population’s health and outcomes while reducing costs. Population Health Management strategies and implementations are driving these efforts to achieve the Triple Aim. Both Providers and Payors are deeply involved in developing and deploying effective programs and processes targeted to deliver high quality, patient centric healthcare to significantly improve patient outcomes, while dramatically reducing healthcare spending. These innovative methods encompass enhanced care coordination, utilization of technology and data, preventative measures and patient engagement to manage high risk patient populations. Collaborative efforts between Payors and Providers, as well as partnerships are improving the patient experience while reducing spending.

This high-level forum features knowledgeable leaders from the nation’s leading Hospitals, Health Systems and Health Plans who will share their valuable insights and expertise on how to achieve success in the rapidly evolving landscape of Population Health Management. Attendees will benefit from learning about best practices and strategies that have been implemented to address the challenges in transforming the nation’s healthcare to improve and maintain a healthy population while reducing healthcare spending.

11:00am – 11:45am
Telemedicine Interventions for Population Health

In the fee-for-service world healthcare 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

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. The session will review predictive analytics to avoid ED and/or admissions, and analytics for readmissions.

Addressing the Challenges of Social Determinants of Health and Advancing Health Equity

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 and moving beyond SDOH management to advance Health Equity.

Optimizing Care Across the Continuum to Optimize Population Health

Changing the Outpatient Landscape: Cardiovascular Care Is Now in the Patient’s Home

Telemedicine, digital health and wearables may seem distant, but incorporated into clinical practice they can now transform outpatient care from episodic hospital-based care to a continuous patient centered journey. This model of care can increase clinician satisfaction, create cost effective care, and reinvigorate the doctor patient relationship. This talk will share principles and practices for implementing these models.

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. 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 Aa Spine Continuum of Care Pathway

Spine related disorders are costing our society more than $50 billion 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.

11:00am – 11:45am
Innovations that Support Risk

This session will address achieving success in value-based programs through the PACE program. The presentation will explore the methodologies of this program which is a fill risk/capitated model and was extremely helpful in learning about innovative models to achieve success in value

11:45am – 12:30pm
Managing Chronic Conditions through Patient Centered Medical Homes

This session will discuss how effective management of patients with chronic conditions is critical to improving quality and bending the cost curve of health care spending. This presentation will review the framework and its focus on effective processes to improve the health and function of people who currently have multiple conditions.

Conference Concludes 

Workshop – Tuesday, February 1, 2022

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.
