8:10 Move Over Population Health: Why Personalized Medicine and Community-Based Health Will Replace Traditional Models of Population Care

John_Mattison_PlenaryJohn Mattison, M.D., Assistant Medical Director, CMIO, CHIO, National and Regional Leadership, Kaiser Permanente

We have access to many datasets that allow us to personalize how we deliver care: to whom, when, how, why, and what. As we exploit these data, traditional models of population care will be displaced by the convergence of community health initiatives and personalized healthcare. The notion of disease-specific registries and ‘in-registry stratification’ of care simply violates the principle of treating the whole person, and generating the most value for individuals and communities.

8:40 Co-Presentation: Creating Innovation Pathways in the Nation’s Largest Integrated Healthcare System to Serve Veterans

Andrea_Ippolito_PlenaryAndrea Ippolito, VA Innovators Lead, Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation


Saurabha_Bhatnagar_PlenarySaurabha Bhatnagar, M.D., Innovation Specialist, Medical Director TBI/Polytrauma, Harvard Medical School

The VA Healthcare System is the largest integrated healthcare system in the United States with over $60 billion dollars dedicated to veteran medical care. One of the goals for the future of the VA is to accelerate the pace of innovation to deliver the best possible experience and healthcare services for veterans and their families. The VA has a large creative force of employees at the front-lines to see + solve problems at the fronts to respond to veterans’ needs at the source and we are working on building an Innovators Network where these ideas can be cultivated and diffused across the country. Health innovation is hard work and the VA will need community partnerships to continue to strengthen the entire system of healthcare in the US.

9:10 Case Study: Leveraging Big Analytics to Make Healthcare Affordable and More Consumer Centric

Patrick_McIntyre_PlenaryPatrick McIntyre, Senior Vice President, Health Care Analytics, Anthem, Inc.

Although the health care industry has changed drastically in the last decade, it remains plagued by the same fundamental challenges: increasing costs, suboptimal outcomes, and low consumer engagement. While healthcare analytics have historically been a key lever used to drive improvements in these areas, traditional data and analytics methods and models no longer offer the speed, precision or holistic view needed to adequately contain medical costs, improve health outcomes, or engage consumers in today’s rapidly changing healthcare marketplace. Using real-world examples, Patrick McIntyre will demonstrate the power of integrated, data-science led analytics to unlock actionable predictive, prospective and prescriptive insights that can boost the effectiveness of care interventions, reduce waste, engage consumers and improve health outcomes – ultimately, revolutionizing the health care experience from the consumer’s viewpoint.

9:40 Engaging the “I” in Your Team: An Approach to Independent Practices

David_Shein_PlenaryDavid Shein, M.D., Medical Director, The Mount Auburn Cambridge Independent Practice Association (MACIPA)

Value-based contracts require changes across the continuum of care delivery. The challenges of MACRA, physician engagement and modeling for the new era of VBC are driving innovations in primary care risk management. The Medical Director of an Independent Practice Association (IPA) with experience managing commercial contracts, Medicare ACO and Medicare Advantage will discuss key initiatives to engage physicians, adapt office workflows and improve quality and cost performance.

CREATING A SUCCESSFUL VALUE-BASED CARE ORGANIZATION THROUGH INNOVATION AND NEW MODELS OF CARE DELIVERY

8:10 The Future of Healthcare IT: Managing Risk Contracts with Novel Quality Measures, Care Management, and Patient-Centered Tech

John_Halamka_PlenaryJohn Halamka, M.D., MS, CIO, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Social media, mobile, analytics, cloud and cybersecurity are driving innovation for the next two years. As reimbursement evolves from fee for service to alternative payment models, a new approach to IT is needed. Literally, we must innovate or die. The speaker will describe the approach that the Beth Israel Deaconess Healthcare System is taking to manage $1.5 billion in risk contracts with novel quality measures, care management, and patient facing apps.

8:40 The Sample-Population Gap: Bias and Crowdsourcing in Health

Maxine_Mackintosh_PlenaryMaxine Mackintosh, Chair & Ph.D. Student, HealthTech Women UK & University College London

With a growing awareness of the need for diversity across businesses, those organisations or sectors falling behind are seeing its effects. Healthcare is overwhelmingly female, yet in the field of health informatics and technology, representation lies below 20%. What effects are we seeing in lack of diversity in health informatics, and what effect might that have for driving “peoplepowered health” and exacerbating our current health inequalities? The effect of lack of diversity can have severe effects on how algorithms are trained, which datasets are selected, and therefore which biases may be exacerbated in a data-driven future health system.

9:10 AI and Value-Based System Design: A Framework, Opportunities and Challenges

Trishan_Panch_KeynoteTrishan Panch, M.D., Co-Founder and CMO, Wellframe; Lecturer, MIT

Co-developed with Sachin Jain, M.D., MBA, CMO, CareMore Health System/Anthem

Patient care that is based on the burden of illness the US faces will require new models of care. This talk will talk about the evolution towards new models of managing acute and chronic illness, new workforce models, and novel methods of integrating technology to improve care delivery.

9:40 INTERACTIVE PANEL: The Key to Transitioning from Fee-for-Service to Value-Based Reimbursement

It is critical that CEOs and CMOs seek risk-shared contracts to fundamentally change the culture of their organizations. In this high-level discussion we will ask industry leaders to shared approaches to the following:

  • How do we drive essential behavior to create successful value-based care organizations?
  • How has your organization responded to CMS’s issuance of MACRA?
  • How do organizations create a culture where the focus is “care goals for the patient” vs. traditional operational process?
  • How do you assume more of a team-based orientation rather than the traditional physicianpatient relationship where the physician is in charge and the patient is a passive partner?
  • What are the key metrics of success for such investments?
