To effectively bend the health cost curve, identification of risk is required across your entire population. While management of the high risk population accounts for 50% of your medical costs, that population is fluid. Early identification of pre-conditions such as prediabetes or obesity, can help you manage those from escalating into more serious conditions. Total Population Management provides tools to assess and manage risk in a coordinated platform, engaging your entire population.

Keys to achieving Total Population Management are knowing your members, engaging your members and coordinating care to manage health outcomes.

Prevalent Pathways to Incontinence: How to Provide the Highest Quality of Care for Members in Challenging Times
Date: August 30, 2017
Time: 3:00-4:00 pm Eastern
Associate Member Host: Medline Industries, Inc.
Presenter: Michelle Christiansen MS PA CN-E, Vice President of Clinical Sales and Marketing, Medline Industries, Inc.

The increasing longevity of older adults in the U.S. poses new challenges for healthcare systems and case management. The CDC notes that critical knowledge gaps exist for responding to the health needs of older adults. For renal, urological and other medical issues leading to incontinence, much remains to be learned about the associated risk factors and effective measures to prevent or delay the onset of these conditions. Excellent healthcare decision-making is a result of being armed with the necessary information and training to gain a clear understanding and successfully manage outcomes. Unfortunately, research continues to demonstrate that today’s health information is presented in ways that are not available or usable by most adults.

If medical issues lead to incontinence, a financially challenging condition develops that creates a costly and labor intensive issue for healthcare providers. What’s more, despite years of research and clinical efforts to improve it, the prevalence of incontinence remains high.  To exacerbate this problem, according to the CDC, an estimated 2 out of 3 individuals 65+ are living with multiple chronic conditions and cost 3 to 5 times more in health care than younger generations.

During this webinar we will discuss solutions to many of the challenges that health plans and case managers/caregivers are facing with incontinent-related issues such as, high staff turnover, financial challenges and proactive member care to maintain skin health and avoid incontinence, falls and other related issues.

Medline’s mission is to help our customers across the continuum of care achieve clinical and financial success. We do that through a personalized approach to understand our customers’ needs in an environment that demands lower costs and better outcomes.As both a manufacturer and distributor, we deliver a robust product portfolio and member-care solutions to help healthcare providers and Health Plans perform at their very best. We are committed to advancing the health of healthcare.

Webinar description is: Managed Medicaid Organizations are innovating at a rapid pace, leading the change to value-based care. As more states implement pay-for-performance models, capitation withholdings, and performance bonuses or penalties, MCOs must focus more than ever on the important quality measures tied to these value-based financial models.  In seeking to drive quality, home-delivered meals are emerging as an indispensable benefit, serving as both effective clinical intervention and a powerful engagement tool. This webinar will describe how condition-specific home-delivered meals are being used by MCOs to drive clinical outcomes, quality measures, member engagement and cost savings.

Active Management: The Keys to Reducing Risk for Medicaid Payers
Date: June 28, 2017
Time: 3:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: HHAX
Presenter: Tom Meyer, Chief Program Integrity Officer

The home care ecosystem is complex, and visibility into member care, accurate billing and more is difficult for Medicaid payers. Yet, the risk and vulnerability falls squarely on the shoulders of the payers. They are directly responsible for quality of care issues, claw back from plans, states or the federal government, loss of contracts, loss of members and more. This presentation will detail strategies for reducing risk for Medicaid payers by focusing on active management for better channels of visibility into their providers and members. This is much more than implementing an EVV solution, this is how to consistently and effectively communicate with key stakeholders in the home care ecosystem, to improve member care and drive efficiency improvements.

HHAX is improving the overall healthcare system by making home care more effective in the face of an aging national population. By connecting payers, providers and members in the home care industry, HHAX is reducing costs, improving efficiencies and allowing our most vulnerable populations to stay in their homes longer.

DRGs, Payment Misperceptions and Care Management Impact in the NICU:  A Nationwide Study Focused on Inlier Trends and Costs
Date: May 24, 2017
Time: 3:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: ProgenyHealth
Presenter: Dr. Ellen Stang, President & CEO, ProgenyHealth Scott Harris, Managing Director, Milliman

The ongoing quest to contain health care costs is often hampered by the common misconception that DRG payment methodologies limit the options for Medical Management. ProgenyHealth has a proven model that care management done the right way, in collaboration with providers, hospitals and families, leads to significant improvements in health outcomes and lower costs. Over the last decade, ProgenyHealth has delivered consistent results to its clients reducing the costs of both inlier and outlier payments across the NICU population.  The complexities of DRGs and the premise that all cases with the same diagnosis, and in the same facility always result in the same payment can obscure the realities of DRG payments. These findings have now been independently validated through a study by Milliman focused on APR-DRGs and MS-DRGs inlier cases.

Please join ProgenyHealth and Milliman for a presentation of their newly released White Paper.

Discussion:

  • How LOS correlates to payment in the NICU
  • Impact of billed charges on payment
  • Discussion of the root causes of payment variation
  • Medicaid and Commercial specific results
  • Impact of Care Management on inpatient costs

ProgenyHealth is the only national company dedicated to NICU Population Health.  The study took findings from ProgenyHealth’s extensive NICU database and independently validated them, with the actuaries/analysts at Milliman, against a national database of over $17 billion in NICU paid claims data.

Milliman is among the world’s largest independent actuarial and consulting firm. The company has extensive experience in the payer and hospital market, with a broad understanding of costs trends in healthcare. Milliman is deeply committed to research and data driven solutions to support health care organizations to make informed decisions.

Leveraging Transportation Network Companies in Traditional NEMT Programs
Date: May 3, 2017
Time: 3:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: MTM, Inc.
Presenter: Eric Reynolds, MTM's VP of Business Development

With the rise in popularity of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) nationwide, many health plans are considering utilizing on-demand providers like Uber and Lyft to augment or enhance their non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) programs. There is a great need for NEMT providers who can enhance on-demand service provisions within NEMT networks, and TNCs fulfill that need. However, solely utilizing TNCs for transportation service poses compliance risks to NEMT programs such as drivers and vehicles not meeting stringent credentialing requirements and challenges around advance scheduling.

When TNCs are utilized properly by a NEMT benefits manager as service providers on a controlled quantity basis, the risks drastically decrease, allowing health plans to be confident in the safety and compliance of their NEMT program while taking advantage of the high quality, technologically savvy operations offered by TNCs. This webinar will explore the opportunities and benefits available to health plans through this model, including:

  • Enhanced gap filling, particularly in response to short notice and on-demand trips such as those for hospital discharges, will calls, and stranded passengers
  • Cost savings with standard TNC rates that are typically below Medicaid rates paid to traditional NEMT providers for short notice and on-demand trips
  • Improved network adequacy through large networks that can be deployed almost immediately in urban markets
  • Technological advances, such as text message notifications to passengers with trip details and estimated arrival times

How can aligning with Medicaid initiatives improve healthcare value? 
Date: April 19, 2017
Time: 3:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: 3M Health Information Systems
Presenter: Jared McKee

Value-based payment (VBP) is top of mind for all who work with a Medicaid population in states across the country. Medicaid has become the nation’s most consequential health program, implementing new health care delivery systems and other VBP initiatives.  In response, managed care plans are tasked with creating new opportunities to improve access to quality, equitable care that incentivizes value over volume.

As states are increasingly looking to move away from volume-driven fee-for-service payments and toward VBP arrangements, this webinar will discuss how 3M can help managed care organizations:

  • Control the variation of costs within patient populations
  • Measure total cost of care
  • Help providers improve healthcare value
  • Analyze patient risk, utilization, and socio-economic determinants of health to improve networks of care

At 3M, we generate population health analytics for 55 million lives in Medicaid, Medicare and commercial populations across the US.  For ten million of those lives, we directly participate in the design and measurement of the VBP arrangements in which the populations are enrolled.

Your Captive Audience: Engaging Members in LTPAC
Date: January 11, 2017
Time: 3:00- Eastern
Associate Member Host: PointRight Inc.
Presenter: Pamela Gould, Vice President, Business Development & Payer Strategies, PointRight

It’s no secret that your most expensive, and highest-need members are those receiving care from a long-term, post-acute care (LTPAC) provider. What steps can health plans take to ensure their members are receiving the most efficient, effective, and reliable care in these settings? This session addresses how to utilize real-time, clinically based analytics to not only identify high-risk members in LTPAC settings, but devise successful strategies for engaging them in wellness programs such as fall prevention, smoking cessation, influenza vaccinations and behavioral health. We will also provide examples of how to build high-performing LTPAC networks with standard performance measures that are based on clinical practice by diagnosis group, rather than overall Five-Star ratings. Data transparency and standardization enable payers to foster collaborative partnerships with LTPAC providers and tailor care management programs to fit the needs of a specific member. In turn, the plan is able to keep costs down with fewer readmissions and more satisfied members. Let predictive analytics place your members in the right care setting, at the right time.

Learning Objectives:

  • Utilize real-time, clinically based analytics to drive proactive care interventions for LTPAC members
  • Align the unique needs of members with facility capabilities  
  • Create high-performing partnerships with LTPAC providers using standard key performance metrics
