Data-Driven Analytics: Optimizing Patient Access

April 17, 2024 1:00 PM ET (NYC)

Within every healthcare organization lies the shared objective of finding capacity to accommodate more patient visits efficiently while minimizing wait times and elevating patient satisfaction. The good news is, data-driven organizations experience a measurable and positive patient access response to improvement initiatives when strategic access decisions are made using comprehensive analysis.

In this webinar, we’ll explore harnessing a data-driven approach that allows organizations to better leverage scheduling metrics to enhance patient care experiences. We’ll examine core metrics, such as appointment counts by session, appointment lag and wait times, and bump and no-show rates – which highlight potential capacity and performance gaps. Going beyond core metrics, we’ll assess advanced metrics like 3rd-next available appointment and scheduling utilization and how these metrics can correlate to help quickly identify inefficiencies within the scheduling processes or systems. Building on these concepts, we’ll discuss the importance of integrating related metrics from patient satisfaction surveys, call center data, and financial KPIs. Finally, we’ll showcase how we can predict performance improvements for increasing capacity or improving revenue with data-driven strategies.

What You’ll Learn:
● Why a focus on core metrics is the foundation for improving care
● Understanding how advanced scheduling metrics expose hidden inefficiencies
● How to correlate access KPIs with other metrics to create data synergy
● Methods to predict or quantify the ROI of potential access improvements

Who Should Attend:
Healthcare administrators, IT professionals, scheduling coordinators, performance analysts, and anyone keen on optimizing patient access using a data-driven approach will find this webinar invaluable.

Data-Driven Analytics: Leveraging HCCs to Improve Care

May 21, 2024 2:00 PM ET (NYC)

In an era where data-driven solutions are revolutionizing healthcare, Hierarchical Condition Categories (HCCs) have now emerged as both a quality measure and a pivotal financial tool.

We’ll delve deep into how data-driven strategies can uncover hidden financial potential for organizations that can accurately stratify patient populations based on level of risk and use those insights to enhance care management tactics for patients with chronic conditions. See detailed examples that illustrate how to integrate analytics from data contained within your EHR, scheduling, and claims data to reconcile accurate risk scores against payer scores, and proactively identify gaps in care. Learn why it’s time to broaden your view of HCCs and include them as a strategic financial tool to improve patient care and boost revenue.

What You’ll Learn:
● The tactical, dual role of HCCs as a quality measure and a financial tool
● How to shift from reactive to proactive HCC management to ensure high-risk patients receive essential care
