Why Payers are Winning and You’re Not (Recorded)

How do you explain when all the money invested in CDI, Physician Advisors, Coding, Billing, Case Managers doesn’t show a real improvement in denials, appeals and write-offs?

Many programs and tools being offered to hospitals today either fail to deliver as promised or fail to deliver solutions that work for very long. At least part of the reason for this has to do with what is expected of them, even before they are purchased and implemented.

We will explore what Game Theory can teach us about the Why and What is happening in so-called healthcare reform, and look at how to address the challenges present in value-based performance programs and overzealous efforts by third-party payers to reduce their medical loss ratios and enhance their own profitability through engagement in medical necessity and clinical validation denials strategies.

By attending this highly informative and thought-provoking session, participants will gain the practical mindset to recognize the strategies and tactics necessary to begin playing the same “game” and with the same rules being used by the payers, better ensuring the survival of their facilities, their jobs, and sometimes even the lives of their patients.

The Information Blocking Rule: A Roadmap to Interoperability for HIM

The interoperability final rule was introduced in 2020 and enforces considerable compliance obligations on healthcare stakeholders, including providers, EHR vendors and HIEs. Despite the major changes of the information rule, however, most healthcare organizations lag in awareness and preparedness for compliance. The COVID-19 pandemic has further complicated compliance with the final rule, as healthcare leaders report a lack of time for education and implementation amid surges of the virus. This session provides a comprehensive background and overview of the final rule, as well as points out exceptions to the definition of information blocking. Speakers provide guidance specifically for HIM, including tips to collaborate within other departments and ensure long-term compliance.

Elevating HIM Leadership through Effective IT

The healthcare industry is changing rapidly, and technology is playing an increasingly important role when it comes to managing information in this space. HIM professionals have the opportunity to have a poignant impact on the effectiveness of their organization’s digital transformation.

Keep in mind that while technology has brought incredible new possibilities, most of those possibilities are built on the back of high-quality health information. In order for healthcare organizations to capitalize on these opportunities, HIM leaders must collaborate with IT to enable a policy-driven approach to managing the information lifecycle and establish a strong health data foundation.

In this session, we’ll explore the critical ways HIM professionals can optimize collaboration with IT to help their organization recognize the strategic value of their data and how it can be used to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of healthcare.
