There is an old saying "you cannot manage what you don't measure." The future of data analytics requires the need for live, real-time data. Several key financial statements, including balance sheets, income statements, physician/provider productivity, operating and capital budgets, pro formas, dashboards and benchmarks, should be utilized in all practices along with data analytic tools to best analyze, evaluate and manage the performance of your practice. Having an objective basis for decision making will assist in implementing financial and operational improvements. If you cannot measure your progress, you have no way to know if you are moving toward your intended outcome. Utilizing key financial indicators, you can measure your progress toward reaching your goals.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Evaluate how to quantify a gap between your practice and "best practice"
  • Identify key core practice, revenue cycle and ancillary service metrics to drive performance
  • Implement a dashboard to report key financial, operational and provider productivity benchmarks

As reported in many recent surveys, physicians are unhappy, burned out and don't have the time for the most important part of their jobs - their patients. In several studies that address burnout, physicians often cite EMR documentation as a major source of their frustration. Certified Medical Scribe Specialists (CMSS) have been shown to give physicians the time and space needed to help patients get truly well, transforming clinical care and enabling new paradigms for prevention and wellness. This session will introduce attendees to the expanded CMSS credential, which has paved the way for a new clinical team concept that focuses on patient-centric care at the point of care. Real-world examples of practices employing these teams will be presented. Attendees will be provided a checklist/assessment of practical implementation ideas that address workflow, creating efficiencies, improving care and outcomes, and meeting MACRA Quality Payment Program reporting objectives related to Advancing Care Information and Clinical Improvement Activities.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Outline how the expanded CMSS credential is making certified scribes more valuable members of the healthcare team
  • Analyze how one system is taking advantage of the expanded CMSS credential in innovating care and enhancing patient and physician experiences
  • Discuss where Certified Medical Scribe Specialists can specifically help practices operate more efficiently while helping practices meet MACRA QPP objectives

Is independence still an option? There are fewer physicians in independent practices now than in the beginning of the decade. As reimbursement methodologies change, physicians are being sought after by health systems, large MSO-model practices and multi-specialty groups. What is the best option for a practice? Whether you remain independent or merge, there are several factors to consider. Attendees will discover what to consider when deciding whether to remain independent or merge, what the integration due diligence process is and alternative practice options. The session will compare single/multi-specialty/health system alignment, joint ventures, contracting with a MSO and more. Attendees will leave with the necessary tools to determine the best outcome for their practice.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Analyze the current healthcare landscape and the factors behind the drive to consolidate
  • Compare, contrast and analyze options available to independent physicians and practices
  • Differentiate between alignment opportunities and examine the indicators needed to make the final decision

Humility is such an important character trait. It allows you to acknowledge that you have room to improve, you become more approachable, you have influence over others, your team will want you to succeed and you are naturally empathetic to others who are struggling. We will examine a research project that quantifies the impact of humility and addresses the three ways an exceptional leader can preserve humility: be constant, learn to avoid first-person pronouns and make sure you give credit where credit is due. "It's not about thinking less of yourself but of yourself less." C.S. Lewis

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Outline why being an exceptional leader requires humility
  • Leverage three ways to preserve humility
  • Address the truth about humility; that it's not a weakness, but a sign of strength

As physician groups grow, physician compensation design becomes increasingly important to their overall financial performance. An unpredictable payer environment and conflicting reimbursement incentives further complicate the challenge of designing physician compensation models for organizational leaders with physician compensation responsibility. Given the increasing need for evolving physician compensation models, what are the common (and expensive) mistakes that organizations should seek to avoid? This session will be structured around 10 common physician compensation mistakes. Real-life case studies and simple examples of the financial impact to the organization will be provided. Identification of physician compensation mistakes is step one in solving a problem; developing solutions is key. The session will address solutions that include both technical and process solutions. These solutions will be tied back to one or more of the common mistakes and case studies and will include a review of key outcomes/results.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Discuss physician compensation mistakes using a physician compensation top-10 checklist as well as case studies from both independent and fully-aligned physician organizations
  • Measure the strategic and economic cost of physician compensation mistakes from a clinical enterprise perspective
  • Establish tools for evaluating current methodologies and developing more effective strategies

Hospitals and physicians have struggled to find a balance of strategies or models that provide the benefits of integration while maintaining physician autonomy and compensation flexibility. This session will describe the Group Practice Subsidiary Model which is designed to provide significant integration between hospitals and physicians around new payment models and population health management, but still give physicians significant autonomy in operating their practices and retaining current compensation structures. You will learn about the legal structure of the model, as well as hear from a practice administrator and hospital executive that have been involved in the conversion of a private practice group to the Group Practice Subsidiary structure.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Differentiate the Group Practice Subsidiary Model structure from the limitations of a more traditional integrated model
  • Assess the benefits for hospitals and physicians related to payer contracting, cost savings, management of patient populations, and adapting to new reimbursement models
  • Determine when the Group Practice Subsidiary Model should be considered in lieu of other integration models such as clinically integrated networks, employment, co-management and PSAs

As the proverbial stranger at the bedside, providers are tasked with a very challenging proposition - meet a new patient, possibly at their most vulnerable state, quickly establish effective lines of communication and trust, and provide patient-centric care, ultimately yielding a satisfied patient (and family) regardless of the clinical outcome. Now superimpose ethnic, cultural and, at times, language barriers ? this is the assignment of a provider. With increased focus on patient experience and satisfaction, it is imperative that providers are equipped with the tools needed to deliver cultural competent care to all patients. This is not simply the right thing to do, but is a very important aspect of quality medical care that emphasizes the need for effective communication with patients and family members. Attendees will look at why cultural competency is important and what tools can help guide providers to be more culturally competent. This session will utilize role-playing highlighting different themes to demonstrate common provider-patient interactions.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Assess cultural competency (CC), the related challenges faced by physicians, and increase awareness regarding the importance of having a purposeful strategy
  • Discuss the direct link between CC and improved patient outcomes/satisfaction
  • Utilize tools that will help to guide physicians toward a more culturally competent practice, validated by improved patient experience metrics

For years, software vendors have focused on the fee for service (FFS) challenges of producing a defensible clinical note, creating a claim and posting a payment. Emerging non-FFS relationships depend on a wide array of performance, quality and patient service activities that go beyond the clinical visit and may leave your practice without the revenue you deserve if you stay with FFS strategies and tools. This session addresses the specific challenges of earning revenue under non-FFS arrangements as well as issues associated with tracking non-FFS performance. We will examine repurposing FFS-focused Practice Management Systems and Electronic Health Record (PMS/EHR) systems to track and manage your non-FFS responsibilities that drive your ability to earn revenue.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Assess key patient service and revenue cycle features needed for non-FFS models
  • Discuss co-opting FFS-driven PMS/EHR features to manage non-FFS arrangements
  • Evaluate reporting and analytics strategies to track non-FFS performance

Learn how the University of Minnesota Physicians is innovating the delivery of care in a new 342,000-square-foot multi-specialty facility. The M Health Clinics and Surgery Center is home to more than 37 specialties, an ambulatory surgery center, 1,500 providers and staff, and sees upwards of 2,400 unique visits daily. The clinic is designed to maximize space and resources, with only 178 exam rooms, no check-in desks, and only one waiting room per floor. How do they manage the constant flow of patients, achieve patient wait times of 15 or minutes or less, and operate with 120 fewer exam rooms than their previous facility? One key technology, a real-time locating system (RTLS), allows not only in-the-moment visibility to patient locations, exam room status and provider availability, it also automatically collects a wealth of data used for continuous improvement. Learn how M Health uses these real-time and retrospective metrics to manage the patient experience, dynamically assign and utilize exam rooms, and proactively manage daily practice.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Determine how RTLS technology can be leveraged to improve patient and care team experience
  • Integrate operational data to engage care teams
  • Create an environment of continuous process improvement

D07 Stark Law and Value-Based Reimbursement

Speaker: Jesse Berg, JD MPH
Learning level: Advanced
Duration: 60 minutes
Credit hours: ACMPE: 1 | CNE: 1 | CEU: 1

Expanding Item - View More View All Course Info

As reimbursement models shift towards performance- or value-based, healthcare providers are left to struggle with self-referral and fraud and abuse rules still geared toward fee-for-service reimbursement. The Stark Law's current restrictions present challenges for physicians who are striving to change the way they deliver care to better fit with the incentives and goals of value-based reimbursement models. Regulatory agencies and False Claims Act qui tam relators have had increasing success in bringing enforcement actions based on the way doctors are compensated. Many of these enforcement actions have involved very technical theories of noncompliance. Strict liability standards for Stark Law violations coupled with the ambiguity associated in squaring a fee-for-service based law with value-based reimbursement makes this a worrying trend for providers and raises the stakes for compliance.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Evaluate the Stark Law, including the scope of its restrictions and commonly used exceptions
  • Interpret value-based reimbursement models and how they implicate the Stark Law, along with areas of ambiguity when applying the law to value-based reimbursement models
  • Critique available Stark Law exceptions that may apply to value-based reimbursement and strategies for meeting Stark Law and Anti-kickback Statute requirements

Dr. Halee Fischer-Wright presents a unique prescription for fixing America’s health care woes, based on her 30 years of experience as a physician and industry leader. The problem, Fischer-Wright asserts, is that we have lost our focus on what has always been at the heart of effective health care: strong relationships between patients and physicians, informed by smart science and enabled by good business, that create the trust necessary to achieve the outcomes we all want. Drawing from personal stories and examples from popular culture, supported by scientific studies and rock-solid logic, Dr. Fischer-Wright shows how the business and science of medicine can combine to achieve what she calls the art of medicine. She then details the three questions necessary to guide us toward true solutions and the five paradigm shifts crucial to bring the art, science, and business of medicine Back to Balance…before it’s too late.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Describe what is missing from today’s practice of medicine
  • Incorporate what three questions to ask to transform your own organization from the front line up
  • Discuss what paradigm shifts need to occur in medical practice for it to work as well in practice as it does in promise

Healthcare organizations currently face a variety of challenges. Recent data indicate that more than half of physicians in a national survey show signs of “burnout,” just at a time when more active physician involvement and engagement is critical to achieving organizational goals. Effective governance, leadership and a coherent organizational culture are increasingly recognized as essential factors in meeting these challenges. This session will examine how governance leadership can positively impact physician engagement and help minimize burnout. We will also explore how to measure and manage the culture of the organization---and how to cope with the multiple cultures that are often found in organizations that have been created through the merger of formerly independent entities.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Analyze the extent of physician burnout and discuss at least five factors that contribute to it
  • Discuss the role of organizational culture and organizational leaders in enhancing physician engagement and reducing burnout
  • Outline a nine-step process through which organizational leaders can measure and manage organizational culture so as to improve performance

Just as administrators would not presume to step in for a doctor, doctors should not be expected to take on administrative roles without additional training. Integrating physicians into leadership is crucial, as they offer insight into patient care, quality, and safety issues. However, to be an effective leader, physicians must move beyond their clinical expertise, think long term, understand larger issues, and work collaboratively. This requires training. This transition can be facilitated by providing physicians with foundational knowledge of the business of medicine with an emphasis on an organization's structure, strategy, finance and performance. Attend this session as a physician to gain this knowledge or attend this session as an administrator to arm yourself with the knowledge to take back to your physicians.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Outline and apply fundamental business education and principles that physicians need to be successful leaders
  • Explain why it is important for physicians to have knowledge of business
  • Analyze potential areas of risk within the business side of practice and know what questions to ask

The Massachusetts General Hospital has implemented electronic consults ("E-Consults") as an innovative way to deliver outpatient specialist care. In our program, PCPs initiate E-Consults and then receive structured guidance from a specialist within 2-3 days. This provides much more rapid access to specialist expertise compared with waiting for a traditional office visit. Detailed evaluation of our program shows a reduction in unnecessary traditional referrals and high satisfaction among both providers and patients.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Determine operational needs and logistical challenges of implementing an E-Consult program
  • Identify the effects of E-Consults on quality of care, patient satisfaction, revenue and physician workflow
  • Analyze how E-Consults can improve performance in a mixed payment environment

Just as everyone has a very personal healthcare experience, each has financial needs and preferences that affect how, when and if they pay their bill. No two patients are the same, and it's time the patient billing and payment process accounted for those differences. This session will look at industry trends and the current challenges that healthcare providers face relating to patient financial engagement, and why the same cookie-cutter billing process just won't cut it anymore. We'll explore new methods that leverage proven communication techniques. We'll explore how patient diversity, including generational factors, financial considerations, and past payment behaviors, impacts how likely patients are to pay. Then we'll share strategies about how to leverage patient data to make financial communications more personalized, more appropriate and more effective.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Coach staff on how to look beyond the balance to understand patient needs, preferences and tendencies
  • Assess how tried and true persona-based communication techniques apply to patient financial communications
  • Justify how the financial conversation must transcend the bill

Physicians control 100% of operating revenue and a significant amount of operating costs through practice patterns and variation, and they must be seen as potential partners to reduce the overwhelming amount of waste that exists in our healthcare system. Five proven ways that organizations are working with physicians to reduce operating costs include: 1) Reducing labor costs through redeployment of physicians and other healthcare providers; 2) Aligning all compensation models to achieve operational and organizational objectives; 3) Redesigning and simplifying operations; 4) Reducing supply chain costs through a value analysis process; and 5) Optimizing outcomes and reducing costs through standardized service excellence. Each of these approaches will be discussed, with specific examples of organizations that have been successful at reducing operating costs through these proven techniques.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Educate why organizations must significantly cut their cost structures or they will not survive
  • Illustrate why physicians must partner with management to reduce operating costs and why this is something that management cannot do alone
  • Examine five proven techniques to reduce operating costs through working with physicians on labor, alignment, operational, supply chain and service approaches

Benchmarking allows you to quickly assess the health of your practice and is the starting point for a business case analysis that you can use to evaluate new products or services. This session will demonstrate the basic benchmarking process and provide participants with specific tools that they can bring back to their practice to implement the benchmarking philosophy that "if you don't measure it, you can't manage it and if you don't value it, you won't change it." Additionally, since each business case analysis must be tailored to the specific environment, the presenters will demonstrate how an assessment will differ for an independent practice, an ambulatory surgery center, and a hospital-based practice. The presenters will describe how to determine which metrics should be the key performance indicators (KPIs) that you and your leadership team need for executive-level decision making. You will also learn how to create a set of subordinate metrics that will diagnose the root cause of a KPI that exceeds its threshold limits. The presenters will provide separate practical exercises to describe a business case analysis for a new revenue center in a private practice and in a hospital setting. By attending this session, participants will have both a working concept of how to benchmark performance and practical tools they can use to implement a benchmarking program in their practice.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Define practice performance over time and compare against others
  • Arrange an inventory of KPIs to support evidence-based decision making
  • Illustrate a business case analysis for a new revenue center, service line or capital purchase using metrics

When high-risk patients are discharged from the hospital, how do you monitor their health, ensure they adhere to clinicians' instructions, and reduce their risk of readmission? Many recently discharged patients have questions concerning their medication, test results, follow-up care and even their bills. A well-designed Care Transitions program ensures patients obtain support from a knowledgeable, empathetic, licensed nurse who is familiar with their case. Sutter Physician Services (SPS) has developed a Care Transitions program to help bridge the gap between hospital discharge and a follow-up visit with a primary care physician. The goal of the program is to improve health outcomes and decrease readmissions by proactively reaching out to patients to provide clinical support as well as helping them overcome any social barriers to obtaining medicine or additional care. Dedicated nurses help guide patients as they adjust to post-discharge health issues and responsibilities. This presentation will examine how SPS built a successful Care Transitions program. By examining a detailed case study, attendees will learn how SPS managed to improve patient outcomes and decrease hospital readmissions for its patients.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Discuss the components of a successful Care Transitions program
  • Analyze a Care Transitions implementation case study and lessons learned
  • Organize the benefits from the standpoint of clinical outcomes and financial return

We constantly see practices stumble over new regulations, become frustrated with the complexity of incentive programs and get overwhelmed by ever-changing expectations from payers. There are paths available to build a highly functional practice that meet new competitive and regulatory pressures while improving practice vitality. In this session, we will look at three models of practice design that have been shown to improve efficiency and effectiveness in primary care. Using principles from the Future of Family Medicine model, the Enhanced Primary Care model and the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, we will discuss the elements of practice design that increase productivity while avoiding change fatigue and restoring the "Fourth Aim" - improving the work life of healthcare clinicians and staff.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Outline at least two practical changes that can be made within the practice that will add value to the patient's experience of care and can be introduced into the workflow
  • Utilize at least one measurement opportunity that improves the effectiveness of the clinical practice
  • Discuss the key points of the "Fourth Aim" and leverage at least two actions that can be used to help improve the work life of healthcare clinicians and staff

Is any physician truly independent? The traditional small physician-owned practice is rapidly morphing into larger physician groups, hospital- and payer-owned practices, and all variations in between. Fields will present on the current state of independent practice models, including single shingle practices, multi-specialty practices, direct primary care, and the "integrated independent" primary care practice. Discussion will include the advantages, disadvantages and critical success factors of each model, including vision and goals, clinical decision making, and leadership structure, capabilities and quality. Real-world examples will be discussed to show how one practice has grown and thrived as an "integrated independent" practice while continuing to offer clinical autonomy for its physicians.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Analyze the changing environment for the independent practice and different structural models
  • Discuss independent practice model challenges and strategies to address those challenges
  • Illustrate how practices can operate as an "integrated independent" practice while maintaining clinical autonomy

H09 Paying for Call: Balancing Competitiveness with Regulatory Compliance

With increased scrutiny on call coverage compensation, it is imperative that organizations ensure that call coverage arrangements are both reasonable and consistent with fair market value. The OIG has clearly stated that there are essentially two main criteria to test whether a given on-call compensation arrangement passes existing regulatory scrutiny. First, the compensation must be "fair market value in an arm's-length transaction for actual and necessary items or services." Second, the compensation should not be "determined in any manner that considers the volume or value of referrals or other business generated between the parties." The OIG has indicated that there is significant risk associated with call coverage arrangements that are not structured appropriately and such arrangements could be used to "disguise unlawful remuneration." Guidance on how to establish call coverage arrangements to ensure financial and regulatory compliance while also balancing the organization's need to be market competitive will be presented as well as addressing the multiple challenges organizations face in assessing the impact various factors have on the market data.

This session will provide you with the knowledge to:

  • Implement call coverage arrangements to ensure financial and regulatory compliance
  • Assess the market data and trends for call coverage, as well as the impact various factors have on the market data
  • Determine best practices for changing call coverage compensation, as well as the financial considerations when integrating with healthcare systems
