How a Standards-Based Approach for Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Data Improves Health Equity

What is your organization doing to move the needle forward in the quest for health equity and mitigating barriers to care? What challenges are you experiencing? Likely there are several obstacles, especially given that many of the issues have been rooted in societal inequalities, historical and contemporary injustices, disparities in health and healthcare, and adverse social determinants of health. This session will explore current initiatives and drivers for change intended to help forge us ahead, using a data-driven approach, as we traverse our way through these very complex issues. Some of the bottlenecks in reaching such goals include navigating through large seas of data needed to support initiatives, ensuring the data is high quality, and keeping up with the latest industry standards.


11:00am – 11:45am

The Progressive Journey Toward Population Health Management

The changes underway in the U.S. healthcare system constitute a major shift in our national care delivery model. Healthcare providers are making further progress transitioning from a fee-for-service approach to one based on value. Organizations are orienting around the Triple Aim to achieve the end goal: better quality for more people at an affordable cost. Hospitals and health systems are searching for effective and feasible ways to improve the outcomes and the satisfaction of their individual patients, while managing the overall health of the population more effectively and reducing the unnecessary costs inherent in the health care system. Opportunities to improve and engage in best practices are plentiful, regardless of the stage of adoption at which a healthcare provider is in their population health journey. However, where to begin and how to best ensure changes are impactful, executable and sustainable are the ongoing questions providers struggle to answer. This session will explore key areas of focus for hospitals and health systems that want to accelerate organizational adoption of a population health model, including the necessary information infrastructure.


11:45am – 12:30pm

Addressing Healthcare Costs of an Aging Population through Digital Transformation
As healthcare leaders continue to face budgetary challenges, they’re also working hard to meet the needs of an expanding aging population while simultaneously controlling healthcare costs.

It’s a challenge that’s compounded by the fact that our aging populations are defined by chronic conditions. Around 95 percent of patients age 65 or older have a minimum of one chronic condition, and 80 percent have two or more. As humans live longer, the costs associated with these statistics become even more significant. And as healthcare leaders face rising healthcare costs, keeping aging populations healthy and happy has only gotten more difficult. But despite these challenges, it is possible to address the needs of older populations in financially sustainable ways that allow patients to access the best care everywhere — even as they continue to age. This session will explore how by adopting digital transformation solutions that meets your older patients’ needs, you can reduce costs and simultaneously improve the outcomes and lives of aging populations.


12:30pm – 1:30pm



1:30pm – 2:15pm

Integrating Population Health Strategies into Medicare to Enhance Outcomes

The integration of population health strategies into Medicare has the potential to improve health outcomes, reduce healthcare costs, and enhance the overall well-being of Medicare beneficiaries. Moreover, it makes plans more competitive and appealing to this growing population. This session will delve into the concept of population health and its implications for the Medicare program—shedding light on the emergence of nontraditional benefits that are becoming increasingly important to the aging demographic, the effects of poverty on healthcare utilization, and economic stability as a social determinant of health. As Medicare caters to a vast and diverse population of older adults and individuals with disabilities, understanding these insights is crucial to optimize the program's effectiveness. By focusing on the health outcomes of entire populations rather than solely that of individuals, population health initiatives aim to revolutionize Medicare and cater to a wider range of beneficiaries.


2:15pm – 3:15pm

Panel: The Role of AI in Improving Population Health

Contemporary healthcare systems are increasingly strained by growing complexity, demand, and unsustainable costs. The challenges that threaten the health of populations and the sustainability of our healthcare systems are increasingly complex and warrant a more sophisticated response. The increasing availability of data on broad factors influencing health, along with our enhanced capacity to link these sources to individual-level and unstructured data and predict future outcomes, offers an unprecedented opportunity to improve population health and address key health system challenges through integration of artificial intelligence (AI) approaches. This session will explore the role of AI in improving population health.


3:15pm – 3:45pm

Networking & Refreshments Break


3:45pm – 4:30pm

Digital Population Health Trends

Buzzwords are prevalent in the healthcare industry. Each year, there are new words and phrases that dominate discussions by healthcare leaders, administrators, experts, providers and other professionals. For example, a couple years ago, “artificial intelligence” topped the list of most talked about new areas of focus. One of the most popular topics that continues to be bandied about in healthcare is population health. With the transition to value-based care, physicians are rewarded with incentive payments for the quality of care they provide, and the goal of population health is to improve clinical metrics for specific groups of patients. Population health is a broad term with many working parts. There isn’t one uniform strategy for managing population health, and programs must be scalable to fit the needs of different provider organizations. This session will explore what’s going on in the world of population health management and what those trends mean for you.


4:30pm – 5:15pm

Integrating Physical and Behavioral Health: A Major Step Toward Population Health Management

Improved care coordination for patients requiring both physical and mental health services could save the U.S. healthcare system billions of dollars annually while improving quality, outcomes and patient lifestyle. Behavioral health is a critical and often-overlooked component of a successful population health management program—a topic frequently discussed but rarely addressed comprehensively. Integration of behavioral health and primary care services can both enhance compliance with preventive care, thereby improving the effectiveness of chronic disease treatment, and help engage patients in self-management to improve lifestyle behaviors that contribute to these chronic conditions. Integration of the two disciplines also can decrease expensive and frequently unnecessary emergency department visits and inpatient admissions, particularly for patients with more severe mental health conditions, who tend to have a high degree of physical health comorbidities. This session will explore the economic and patient care benefits that can be gained from integrating physical and behavioral health services, and why this should be a business priority for any organization making the transition from fee for service to population health management.

The Role of Data Mining in Healthcare and Why it Matters

The role of data mining in healthcare is vital as it enhances patient outcomes, supports evidence-based medicine, optimizes resource allocation, facilitates early disease detection, combats healthcare fraud, advances medical research, and promotes data-driven decision-making. This session will explore how by leveraging the wealth of healthcare data, data mining empowers healthcare systems to provide more efficient, effective, and personalized care while improving population health.


9:00am – 9:45am

How Value-Based Healthcare Drives Cost Savings and Better Care and Improves Population Health Management

Value in healthcare is top of mind for industry leaders, patients, caregivers and providers, especially amid rising costs and inflation, ongoing health disparities among underserved populations, evolving regulatory expectations and other challenges. While most understand the social and economic need to reduce financial barriers and access gaps to high-quality health care, few recognize the enormous opportunity in leveraging value-based healthcare to address these long-standing issues. From better management of chronic conditions, to improved profitability, shared accountability and more, value-based healthcare initiatives have the power to transform care delivery and outcomes. This session will explore how value-based healthcare drives cost savings and better care and improves population health management.


9:45am – 10:15am

Networking & Refreshments Break


10:15am – 11:00am

Patient Engagement Technologies for Population Health Management

As part of their population health management strategies, many stakeholders hone in on patient engagement. Population health programs that emphasize patient access to care, social determinants of health interventions, and healthy behavior change will be more successful. But it’s not just the patient support that’s important. Population health management relies heavily on data, and some of that data will be patient-generated health data that comes from self-reported health histories and the self-management tools patients use outside the clinic or hospital. In short, good population health needs good patient engagement technology. This session will explore different patient engagement technologies that can support a population health management strategy.


11:00am – 11:45am

How Virtual Care Can Enable New Care Management Strategies in Alternative Payment Models

Virtual care continues to play a critical role in healthcare deliver. This session will explore leveraging virtual care to improve the effectiveness of existing alternative payment model strategies (APMs), such as redesigning discharge decisions or meeting quality measures through population health management. You will also learn how to overcome barriers to effective care management and how virtual care can overcome them to better improve outcomes within APMs.


11:45am – 12:30pm

Partnerships for Population Health Management

Increasingly, hospitals and health systems are forming partnerships to attain the new and demanding capabilities required to manage population health under value-based payment. This session will explore considerations for assessing potential partnerships, such as strategic intent, network development and population health management functions. Also learn how partnerships help prioritize health needs and streamline resources to address them.
