1 The Turning Point As You Transform Care Miami February 20-22, Jointly sponsored by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Center for Continuing Education in the Health Sciences and HortySpringer Seminars.

2 Topics HortySpringer s new seminar, The Turning Point As You Transform Care, has been developed to help hospitals and physicians change the direction of patient care based on new reimbursement and delivery models. Our strategy is to enable community hospitals to move beyond silo-based health care and remain strong, provide better care, and control costs. The cost of care, particularly for patients facing the challenges of chronic illnesses, compels hospitals to rethink how that care can be delivered on a continuous basis. Today, up to 2/3 of the cost is actually accumulated after the patient is discharged. Much of this cost can be attributed to poor or disorganized post-discharge follow-up. Many patients admitted with chronic conditions require a lifetime of care. In most communities, the hospital is the only organization with the skills and resources to provide centralized coordination of care. Numerous legal issues are at play as well and require the board to gain additional knowledge and exercise more control. The hospital s patient care responsibilities traditionally began and ended at the front door. The need to coordinate care, inside and outside, will move the hospital into the community. As new payment methods and cost constraints change how hospitals regard volume and quality of care, payment will be affected as well. Neither the government nor insurers can transform and modernize the organization of care. It must be developed and managed locally. The Turning Point is about hospitals changing their culture and joining the community in a new way and shifting malpractice liability from individuals to organizations. It means greater transparency and patient collaboration. And it shifts the focus on quality from process to outcomes and avoiding unhelpful care. Improved patient outcomes Improved care experiences Improved clinical resource utilization Improved medication reconciliation Improved support for physicians Improved communications among providers Improved patient engagement and adherence, while respecting patient choice Improved fiscal performance Reduction of unnecessary procedures, admissions and readmissions Reduction of medical errors Elimination of care gaps Care Coordination Ensuring effective care coordination requires shared, ongoing responsibilities and cost-effective, continuous care strategies. A hospital without walls is the only rational approach for achieving Triple Aim goals. A key feature of this program is training and mentoring volunteer health coaches serving under a hospital-based, interdisciplinary care coordination network (CCN) team. From a care coordination perspective, the CCN is not an institutional appendage it is all-encompassing and enables staff to work together effectively for patients well-being. Care Coordination Goals The first step in achieving these goals is understanding how to operate a care coordination network. Your team will also learn to reduce readmissions and function effectively under an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) or bundled payments model. Our seminar also covers negotiating with Medicaid and commercial carriers to help pay the costs of care coordination while producing savings to partially offset Medicaid losses. Bundled Payments and ACOs In order to achieve and sustain successful operations, hospitals and physicians must decide how they will work together to manage both the cost and quality of patient care. Learning the details of bundled payments and ACOs is particularly important, since the Medicare payment system is moving in the direction of a fixed global payment system. Medical Staff Health care transformation changes are both sweeping and dramatic accomplished only through forged relationships of mutual trust and respect. While these relationships are not always characteristic of medical staffs and hospitals, it is crucial to join forces for the greater good. This seminar will examine changes in hospitalphysician relationships, the new organizational tools required by physician employment and new medical staff models. Teaching How to Negotiate Reimbursement Contracts Traditionally, payment has been structured by fee-for-service contracts between hospitals and payers. Commercial carriers are now seeking closer affiliations with hospitals and physician groups. Medicaid-managed care companies are moving toward risk-based contracts with hospitals. Medicare is experimenting with ACOs and bundled payment strategies. Insurance Exchanges are certain to change the face of reimbursement. Hospitals must also learn to work with payers differently. And community hospitals must discover how to leverage their low costs relative to tertiary care in contract negotiations. The Turning Point will show you how. Bringing the Board Up to Speed How does the hospital board deal with care delivery and payment change? Board leadership must begin to develop an understanding of the changes in payment system. While hospital boards typically equate increased volume with increased profits, this will not be the case in the future. Bundled payments, ACOs, value-based payments, global payments, and penalties for readmissions are clearly not based

3 Topics (continued) on increased volumes. The move away from fee-for-service reimbursement toward a fixed fee per patient per month payment is rapidly setting the stage for the evolution of our payment system. These changes in reimbursement will clearly serve to move hospitals beyond their walls into the community. Hospitals must become more responsible for outcomes and costs in both acute and post-acute patient care. Coordination of hospital and post-acute care is the central change in hospital responsibility fiscally, organizationally and legally. It clearly alters community and physician relationships. And it will move hospitals and their boards into a no discharge strategy in the future. These changes cannot take place without the board. Positively transforming the hospital culture and relationship with the medical staff requires board leadership.
