9:30 AM – 10:00 AM Boulevard Doors Open, Attendee Registration
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM A Transparent View of Value-Based Opportunities – Case Study
Self-insured employers, insurance payers, and patients are actively seeking to purchase health care at the best value.  Our team has analyzed claims and payment data covering 2 – 3 years of service, and this session will shine a light on cost disparities we uncovered across a range of services.  We will provide a view as to how health care organizations can begin positioning themselves to capture these opportunities in 2018 and beyond.
Speaker: Patrick Sulzberger and Gordon Larson
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Re-Defining Office Operations in a Value-Based Environment
Optimizing performance is critical to success in a value-based environment. This session will address ways to change practice culture, engage patients, improve business processes and clinical workflow to meet expectations of the triple aim: improved outcomes, lower cost, and improved patient experience.
Speaker: Tracy Bird
12:00 PM – 12:45 PM Lunch – Jack Stack BBQ
12:45 PM -1:45 PM Coding & Documentation Recommendations for Outlining the Patient’s Condition and Risk
A critical element of getting paid accurately and mitigating compliance risk is documenting thoroughly to clearly outline the patient’s condition and risk, and coding accordingly at the highest level of specificity. Shellie will outline risk scenarios she routinely observes, and provide strategies for how to improve the documentation and coding accuracy. This becomes increasingly important under MIPS and other risk-based payment methodologies.
Speaker: Shellie Sulzberger
1:45 PM – 2:45 PM Reducing Risk and Improving Care
System and process failures related to patient follow-up has resulted in over $39 million in losses insured by MMIC over the past 6 years.  This session will outline the contributing factors of breakdowns in care processes and follow-up systems, identify the risks to patients and impact on your organization due to follow-up system failures, and provide you with the tools and resources needed to reduce the incidence of follow-up system failures in your organization.
Speaker: Robert Thompson
2:45 PM – 3:00 PM Break
3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Transforming Time of Service Collections
In this rapidly evolving health care environment, it is increasingly important for health care organizations to transform their patient collection practices. Higher patient responsibility amounts are realities beyond the first quarter.  This session will highlight practical processes for improving collection success at the time of service, including communication strategies with internal stakeholders and patients. We will highlight a case study example of transformative results achieved when applying these practical processes.
Speaker: Scott Miles
