Using Cost Data to Optimize Clinical Decisions

Thursday, October 11th, 2018 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT

As Vermont continues to move toward a global healthcare payment model, hospitals and health systems in the state are under pressure to advance their ability to operate in a value-based care environment designed to minimize cost and optimize quality. The University of Vermont Health Network is at the forefront of this change, working to transform from a revenue-focused organization to a cost-focused one.

Central to the University of Vermont Health Network’s transformation is the integration of cost and quality data across a growing number of hospitals and physician practices. Equipped with a common fact base and a standard set of reports they can use to evaluate progress, health system leaders are able to take a more informed approach to optimizing care delivery.

During this webinar, Marc Stanislas, a senior Finance leader with the University of Vermont Health Network, and Dr. Walter Morrissey, a Kaufman Hall Managing Director and advisor to the organization, will discuss the next-generation performance improvement work that’s underway and the role that data and analytics are playing in positioning the health system for continued success moving forward.

Webinar attendees will learn:

  • Keys to becoming a cost-focused healthcare provider
  • The importance of data and integration to driving both cost and quality improvements
  • How a leading health system is using analytics to inform clinical decisions and position itself to succeed in a value-based care environment
