Dr. David Wild to Present on Reducing Systemwide Readmissions

Human decision making…ultimately, this is the component that drives outcomes improvement in healthcare. But the pathway to this decision making involves technology—machine learning and predictive analytics—as well as processes and people. Dr. David Wild, the Vice President of Lean Promotion at The University of Kansas Health System, along with Chris Harper, the system’s Director of Business Architecture and Analytics, will lead a case study breakout session at the 2017 Healthcare Analytics Summit to discuss this topic. Of particular note is this healthcare system’s results in reducing readmissions across the board in a very short period, which also contributed significantly to financial improvement. It will be an inside look at the successful blend of human and technological resources needed for broadly reducing readmissions and improving outcomes within a large healthcare system.

How Rookie-style Leadership Can Help Transform Healthcare, According to HAS™ 2016 Keynote Liz Wiseman

As we define critical goals in healthcare transformation (improved outcomes and control of cost, for example), it is just as important that we identify the type of leadership best suited for these objectives. And, much like we’re disrupting our approach to healthcare, we’re also disrupting some common notions about effective leadership. We may have traditionally valued leaders as absolute experts and indispensable parts of an organization. Effective leadership today, however, may be more rooted in what leaders don’t know—in other words, how they ask questions and capitalize on the knowledge around them. In answer to today’s leadership challenges, Liz Wiseman proposes what she calls “rookie smarts.” She argues that the real power lies in what we don’t know and that asking good questions outweighs knowing all the answers.

“Moneyballing” Criminal Justice: Anne Milgram Is Fighting Crime with Data Science

Considering the impact that criminal justice has on society (from the cost of incarceration to our everyday safety), optimal decision making is paramount. To make the best choices, judges and law enforcement need data science. Without analytics, they’re left relying on instinct and experience, which, while highly valuable, are best employed together with research-based instruments. Having recognized this clear need in the criminal justice system, Anne Milgram has led the development of data-driven tools to support better decision making when it comes to differentiating between high- and low-risk criminals. This helps ensure that more dangerous individuals stay behind bars while their less threatening counterparts are freed (thereby freeing governments from the expense of unnecessary incarceration).

Dr. Jay Bishoff to Speak About Trimming Waste in Healthcare at HAS™ 16

Many healthcare organizations find they are behind in quality improvement efforts and awash in a sea of wasteful spending. Dr. Jay Bishoff of Intermountain Health has many great talking points on how to deal with this, chief among them the need to get started now. In this article, and as a keynote speaker during the 2016 Healthcare Analytics Summit, he will elaborate on these seven principles of a quality improvement program:

  1. Explain the why behind any process improvement effort.
  2. Training may be needed to articulate the why, even for those who see and understand the problems.
  3. Pick something to improve and get started. Don’t overcomplicate this step.
  4. Gather data on the process being improved.
  5. Get everybody who’s involved in the process involved in the process improvement. Then diagram the people and processes.
  6. Develop leverage points where interventions can be inserted and from which changes in data can be measured.
  7. Adjust, measure the data again, and then move on to the next thing.

Michael Porter and Others Show How to Deliver Better Care in Value-based Healthcare Documentary

Healthcare organizations from Hamburg to Gothenburg to Boston are realizing the future of care delivery through a value-based approach, as portrayed in this video documentary featuring professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School. Measured Outcomes: A Future View of Value-Based Healthcare explains how value-based care is a methodology that involves standardizing outcome measurements, tracking them over the long term, and putting clinical teams in place with the longevity needed to build a sustainable program. More importantly, it is healthcare that matters most to patients because they report and track their own quality measurements, giving them a say in their own healthcare experience. Providers are winning, patients are winning, and the results for the organizations showcased in this video are remarkable, such as an 88 percent prostatectomy success rate for the Martini-Klinik in Hamburg, Germany, compared to a 32.8 percent rate for the rest of the country. And with just 10 surgeons on staff, they are doing more volume than any other facility in the world, by far, all attributable to their value-based approach.
