Providers today are facing an era of change unlike any before. Reform policies shifting requirements and fiscal uncertainty create a chaotic atmosphere for professionals as well as providers. During times like these, strong leaders who demonstrate innovation and focused decision-making abilities are required.

Health Care Futurist (Part 1) A Survival Guide for Health Care Organizations
Steven Berkowitz, MD, Chief Physician Executive, Northern Light Health and President, Northern Light Medical Group

The entire health care industry is going through unprecedented changes. The empowered consumer with the demanding increased value in their health care dollar will fundamentally change how care is delivered. Transparency and accountability will become the way to do business. Unpredictable and disruptive technology will abound and the physician-patient relationship will continue to change. All stakeholders will need to become engaged and involved as market forces such as telemedicine and “big data” will transform organizations into “virtual health organizations” with the ability to provide “point of care patient care” and achieve the end goal of true population management. This session will address how health care will survive and prosper in this very strange environment. Dr. Berkowitz will discuss five key imperatives. It is not just reform, it is survival.

  • Review how to thrive in the era of the competing health care dollar and how to leverage traditional strategies of market share and profitability to better leverage the medical PMPM.
  • Explore the concept of transparency as a new way of doing business.
  • Discuss the increasingly important role of new technologies among all providers of care.
  • Discuss the goal of achieving engagement and alignment among all stakeholders, including the patient as a key stakeholder.
  • Discuss the importance of becoming a “virtual health organization” with restructuring of the physician-patient and hospital-patient relationships and the ability to provide point-of-care patient care across an ever-expanding geography and continuum of care.

Creating Margin: How to Survive in a Fee For Service-based World while Transitioning to Value-based Health Care
Don Klittgard, MD, FAAFP, CEO, MedLink Advantage, West Des Moines

Our health care environment is constantly changing and evolving, often with competing priorities. Practices and their leaders are challenged by changing reimbursement models and limited resources to adapt. Developing and refining ways to improve practice FFS revenue streams can help ease the burden during the transition to value-based payment (VBP). The value proposition for health care requires physicians and practices to more deeply understand and address bot quality and cost. Learning how to effectively incorporate quality improvement methodology into daily practice is an essential skill we will explore. To succeed in VBP, leaders must also connect those quality efforts to addressing the cost of healthcare is essential in VBP. We will also explore how risk adjustment affects payment in VBP, and the current Alternative Payment Models available to participate in VBP.

  • Discuss the driving factors of today’s changing health care payment world.
  • Describe opportunities to (appropriately) maximize FFS revenue while preparing for value-based payment.
  • Understand how to align meaningful quality improvement initiatives with efforts to address cost.
  • Discuss how risk adjustment affects VBP.
  • Describe the main Alternative Payment Models available.
