Three-Member Health Industry Alliance Cut Costs by $20 Million
November 3, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Scott Whyte, Vice President, IT Connectivity, Catholic Healthcare West. The ARRA and health care reform caused tremendous interest in Health Information Exchange (HIE) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). Conventional wisdom suggests that HIEs will support ACOs. But which HIE functions are most important to the HIE? Do the HIE functions specified by meaningful use have the greatest return? Learn about Catholic Health Care West’s (CHW’s) ACO pilot project with over 40,000 patients. In a truly collaborative environment, an independent payer, hospital and physician group have come together to improve quality and reduce costs. Understand the project’s goals, approaches, outcomes including over $20m in savings, and lessons learned.
