PRE-CONFERENCE SESSIONS
7:00 am – 11:30 am

Leading Change: Physician Leadership Program
(First in 4-Part Certificate Series)

Ed Walker, MD, MHA, Professor, Department of Psychiatry & Behavior Sciences, University of Washington; Seattle, WA

Achieving healthcare transformation requires strong, system-wide leadership. And learning to be leaders takes proper training. Through a special partnership with Dr. Edward Walker, MedAxiom is pleased to announce a new and exclusive leadership training certificate program that incorporates evidence-based content, university quality instruction, a convenient non-university setting and schedule and a respected physician teacher/trainer.

This is the first session of the 4-part Physician Leadership Foundation Certificate series. It is open to both physicians and administrators; it will focus on Leadership and Management and explore:

  • The case for physician leadership—defining individual strengths and challenges
  • Personal style and self-awareness
  • Teams and culture

Sessions 2-4 in this series will be held prior to 2016 MedAxiom Member and CVSL conferences and will cover: The Art of Influence, Performance Improvement and Patient Safety.

7:30 am – 11:30 am

Faster is Better Workshop: Using Compressed Care Models to Support Program Growth

Ginger Biesbrock, PA-C, MPAS, MPH, AAC, Vice President, MedAxiom Consulting; Grand Rapids, MI

Reducing the time from patient diagnosis to treatment and effectively triaging patients to the least acute care setting is the aim of compressed care models. In this session, focus will be on protocol-driven clinics, observation care and enhanced throughput in procedural areas to increase program value with improved quality, patient satisfaction and growth.

GENERAL SESSION
1:00 pm – 1:15 pm Welcome and Introductions
1:15 pm – 2:00 pm

Keynote Presentation:Integration Success, Failures and Future

Michael Cuffe, MD; President, HCA Physician Services; Nashville, TN

HCA is the largest healthcare system in the country. Using his experience leading HCA’s physician organization, Dr. Cuffe will provide insight and perspective on how integration has impacted healthcare, with focus on strategy and expected outcomes. Dr. Cuffe will also forecast the future role of integrated health systems in the U.S., both the opportunities and the requirements to retain financial sustainability.

2:00 pm – 2:45 pm

The Latest Technology: Incorporating New Technology and Therapies Clinically, Operationally and Financially

Charles Brown, III, MD, Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine, Piedmont Heart Institute and Piedmont Healthcare; Atlanta, GA

Historically, programs have raced to be first-to-market to offer newly available technologies and therapies. In today’s health care markets that are struggling with value requirements and financial constraints, programs are considering alternative and differing strategies to roll out new offerings. In this presentation, clinical, operational and financial criteria will be discussed in consideration of new program development. Additionally, strategies to implement new therapy and treatment programs effectively will be described.

2:45 pm – 3:30 pm

Two to Tango: Creating a Winning Physician and Administrative Leadership Model

Ed Walker, MD, MHA, Professor, Department of Psychiatry & Behavior Sciences, University of Washington; Seattle, WA

Increasingly, healthcare organization governance structure is based on the dyad (and triad) leadership model that requires collaboration between physician and administrative leaders. A recent MedAxiom membership survey on integration trends shows that more than 60% of respondents are governed by a dyad leadership structure. Is this the best model for the CVSL and healthcare transformation? If so, what components and practices need to be in place to make it work?

Dr. Walker will explain the importance of the team leadership approach and detail evidence that it increases physician and patient satisfaction, improves quality and decreases costs. He will explore the idea that “a team has an emergent property of iinterrelationship where people read each other’s minds, anticipate what’s going to happen next and are much more interested in promoting high reliability.” Also, he will explain the differences in the dyad leadership personalities, styles and roles and offer ways to develop the success skills associated with both as well as the essentials for overcoming the challenges of collaboration.

3:30 pm – 3:45 pm Corporate Partner Introductions #1

MACRA Readiness: What We Need to Prepare For Now

Suzette Jaskie, President & CEO, MedAxiom Consulting; Ada, MI

MACRA, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015, was signed into law on April 16th, 2015 as a fix for the Sustainable Growth Rate (SRG). Though there are many unknowns as to what the implementation of MACRA will entail, it is clear that MACRA is focused on furthering the value agenda under the Affordable Care Act. The implementation will be incremental, transitioning over a period of four years, and physicians will be faced with deciding between options that pose financial risk to reimbursement.

This presentation will focus on what programs should be doing to prepare for MACRA’s implementation as well as provide information sources to stay abreast of this important development. Participants will receive insight and ideas on how cardiovascular programs and providers can be proactive in shaping the future of healthcare delivery and reimbursement.

9:15 am – 9:45 am

Beyond Meaningful Use – Implementing a Patient Portal That Works!

Mike Mytych; Principal; Health Information Consulting, LLC; Menomonee Falls, WI

The speakers will discuss improved results in financial, operation and other metrics.

10:15 am – 10:45 am Break with Partners
BREAKOUT SESSIONS
10:45 am – 11:30 am

1) QRUR Deep Dive

Cathie Biga, RN; President and CEO, Cardiovascular Management of Illinois; Woodbridge, IL
Michelle Reese, CPC, Revenue Cycle Solutions Senior Consultant, MedAxiom Consulting, Charlotte, NC
Kelsey Reichert, Executive Director, Cardiology Advocacy Alliance; Richmond, VA

This highly interactive session will allow participants the opportunity to bring their Physician Value Based Purchasing Reports—also known as QRUR (Quality Resource and Utilization Reports)—as well as supplemental QRURs and review with the faculty. Understanding where to focus your efforts in improving your Value Modifier score will be highlighted. It is anticipated that the 2014 reports will be available immediately prior to the meeting so this will be late breaking news and a session that should not be missed!


2) Contractual Integration

Rich Bodager, CPA, MBA, FACMPE, Chief Executive Officer, Southern Oregon Cardiology, LLC; Medford, OR

This case study will demonstrate the use of contractual vehicles to in-effect create an integrated approach between an independent cardiology group and its hospital partner to the delivery of cardiovascular services. This comprehensive example is an important illustration that is applicable to any practice desiring to retain their independent status while still collaborating with their hospital system.


3) Physician Performance Dashboards – Case Studies

In this presentation, both proposed changes to the STARK laws and their impact to physician compensation and co-management will be discussed.


2) High Deductibles and POS Collection Strategies: Case Studies and Panel Discussion

Ann Honeycutt, Executive Director, Virginia Cardiovascular Specialists; Richmond, VA
Nicole Knight, LPN, CPC, CCS-P, Director, Revenue Cycle Solutions, MedAxiom Consulting, Jacksonville, FL

Contemporary health insurance plan designs have resulted in
increasing patient financial responsibility. The high deductible,
large patient responsibility plans require different policies,
procedures and strategies to effectively maintain practice financial health. In this presentation, examples of tools and strategies to more effectively collect patient balances will be discussed.


3) Evaluating ACOs or Other Value-Based Contract Opportunities

Jan Kennedy, Executive Director, Cardiology Associates of Waterbury; Waterbury, CT

Value-based contract opportunities, whether an ACO, a bundle or other payment model are not consistently constructed. The risk and opportunities of the contracts are sometimes difficult to assess. This presentation will provide participants with assessment tools and criteria to evaluate an alternative payment model offering.


4) Creating a Clinical Support Tool at Home!

Vinod Nair, MD, Interventional Cardiologist, Cardiovascular Institute of the South; Houma, LA

GENERAL SESSION
