How healthcare can be more thoughtful in its use of emerging technologies

It has become clear in recent years that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges currently facing the healthcare system. Hospitals and health systems need tailored approaches to patient care and business operations. To ensure high-level care and operational goals are met, healthcare executives need to embrace a more thoughtful approach when using emerging and existing technologies. Such approaches should meet an organization's specific needs with great efficiency. To better understand how technology solutions can support organizational goals and drive better experiences for both providers and patients, join Geoff Caplea, MD, medical director for the Allscripts Patient Safety Program, for a discussion on the thoughtful use of emerging and existing technologies.   Sponsored by Allscripts

Achieving interoperability for better patient care

Information silos in healthcare create significant barriers to achieving the core tenets of value-based care. Interoperability is essential for breaking down these silos and delivering clinicians a holistic view of patients. For hospitals and health systems looking to prioritize population health initiatives and meet the growing expectations of patients amid the rise of healthcare consumerism, leveraging technology to help achieve these aims is crucial. However, achieving true interoperability requires more than new technology — it also requires a change in culture. To better understand what true interoperability looks like and how to get there, join Phil Morris, the director of the team of population health subject matter experts at Allscripts, and Michael Blackman, MD, a former assistant professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine who currently provides medical leadership across the Allscripts CareInMotion suite, for a discussion on achieving interoperability.   Sponsored by Allscripts   For more information, please visit Allscript's website here (http://www.allscripts.com/)

Payment transformation has become a reality in Hawaii — here’s how

In an ambitious move in 2016, the largest insurer in Hawaii decided to make population health more than a theory. In partnership with Navvis, Hawaii Medical Services Association rolled out a pioneering payment program for primary care providers, in which PCPs are rewarded for quality, efficiency, cost effectiveness and innovation. In turn, program aims to reduce administrative burden for physicians and better align consumers, providers, employers, the government and the community. The result? Māhie — or "transformation" in the native Hawaiian language — for patients, providers, employers, the government and community at large.   Molly Gamble, vice president of editorial for Becker's Healthcare and editor-in-chief of Becker's Hospital Review, caught up with Stuart Baker, MD, executive officer and president emeritus of Navvis, and Mark Mugiishi, MD, executive vice president, chief health officer and chief medical officer at HMSA, in this podcast to learn about work behind the major undertaking these two organizations took on in 2016. Their conversation touches on: * Involving physicians in a payment transformation program and responding to their input * The strategy, planning and execution required for payment transformation * How a primary care payment program can account for social determinants of health and interact with the broader ecosystem of health and wellness * Quality, financial and satisfaction results and outcomes achieved so far   Sponsored by Navvis Healthcare   For more information, please visit Navvis Healthcare's website here (https://www.navvishealthcare.com/).

E-prescribing and price transparency: How both are changing the game, hand-in-hand

E-prescribing — the ability to electronically send an error-free and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point-of-care — comes with many evident benefits compared to its paper counterparts. As e-prescribing becomes more sophisticated and widespread, in healthcare, a less obvious benefit is emerging. E-prescribing presents a special opportunity for care teams and patients to have conversations about the cost of medications and treatments. As a result, physicians are better positioned to manage a patient’s health and condition by making informed decisions that account for patients’ financial realities, and patients are better positioned to adhere to prescribed medications they can afford and easily obtain with their insurance coverage. Each day, 5 million e-prescriptions cross the Surescripts network, and nearly three-fourths of all prescriptions in the U.S. are transferred electronically via the Surescripts network. Join Tom Skelton, CEO of Surescripts, on this podcast to learn more about how a nationwide health information network can serve as a window into medication and treatment costs.   Sponsored by Surescripts   For more information, please visit Surescript's website here.
