Chairperson Opening Remarks
The Evolving Role of the Chief Medical Officer
In both healthcare providers and payers, the Chief Medical Officer has had more responsibilities thrown into their day-to-day affairs. The CMO is a crucial player to the organization鈥檚 bottom line. In addition to overseeing all the physicians, ensuring patients are safe and well-cared for; CMOs must be able to understand financials, data and communicate with executives throughout their organization as well as other throughout the healthcare ecosystem. This session, will examine the evolution of the role of the CMO and what leadership styles are necessary to be effective.
Population Health 鈥 The Move from a Sick-Care to a Well-Care Model as We Transition to Value-Based Care
This interactive session will take a look at how various hospitals and healthcare systems both in the US and abroad are approaching population health, particularly as most are feeling a push to move towards a value-based cared model versus FFS. We will look at a variety of issues, including:
  • An unregrettable strategy of transforming to value based care.
  • The key pillars to your strategy of moving from Fee-for-Service to value-based care.
  • Types of programs that keep your patients engaged (spanning from healthy to catastrophic patients).
    How your organization is approaching the idea of well-care and moving towards preventative and wellness strategies versus sick-care.
  • What roles do your EMRs play in population health? Where do you see challenges with this strategy, and how do you anticipate this evolving?
  • What are some of the biggest challenges you see and areas you think you need the most help?
Challenges of a CMO: Creating Value for the Growing Health System
As health systems continue to grow whether it be through mergers, acquisitions or the development of new facilities, the Chief Medical Officer is under constant pressure to create value both at the system and the entity level. This session will provide insight into how CMOs are facing this challenge. We will examine such topics as:
  • How do system decisions create value?
  • How is value measured?

Building a Clinical Integrated Network to Enhance Quality of Care
Clinical integration offers the opportunity to coordinate patient interventions, manage quality across the continuum of care, move toward population health management and pursue true value-based contracting. However, the path to a true clinical integrated network is far from clear. We will discuss best practices including:
  • Collaborative leadership
  • Aligned incentives
  • Clinical programs
  • Technology infrastructures
  • Valued partnerships across the ecosystem
How Is Your Electronic Health Record (eHR) Affecting Patient Experience?
There is no doubt, electronic health records can standardize documentation, improve communication amongst providers as well as across the provider-payer relationship and can facilitate reliable care. Additionally, as patients become more involved in their healthcare decisions and utilize mobile and wearable devices, they are asking to be able to communicate electronically. So, then what鈥檚 the problem? Physicians are so set staring into a computer screen or tablet; that they aren鈥檛 paying attention to their patients. In this session, we will look at:
  • The CMOs role in training physicians on the proper manner to utilize eHRs for better patient experience

Staffing Shortages 鈥 Doing More with Less: Acting Smarter by Investing in the Capital of Your Hospital
The expected shortages of physicians and nurses has caused tremendous pressure on hospitals and healthcare systems, particularly now in a push for value-based care and a time of healthcare consumerism. This creates a huge need to 鈥淒o More with Less鈥 staff and reduced budgets. This session will examine and discuss:
  • How do you do things differently and with less money and still get the same or better outcomes

  • How does the economic realities of current and future reimbursement and compensation models affect adoption?
  • Best practices of Telehealth Uses
Afternoon Refreshment Break
Collaboration Among Provider, Payer & Pharma CMOs = Innovation & Reduced Costs?
Payers and providers have had a complex relationship. Many assume that all payers want is to cut costs, while providers want high quality of care, regardless of cost. And, in the past the relationships have been suspicious at best. In fact, the same could be said for pharma-payer relationships. However, as providers become more responsible for cost in value-based payment models; payers are more willing to share information, data and expertise. Additionally, many payers have recognized that having a better connection with their providers gives them better tools to assess the quality ROI of a treatment over time. Almost all agree that pharmaceutical companies need to be part of this discussion as well as they are developing treatments. In this session, we will look at stories and case studies that:
  • Demonstrate a collaborative approach to healthcare that has improved quality of life and outcomes
  • Discuss what types of disruptive innovation has come from collaborative relationships among providers, payers and pharma CMOs
  • Examine how 鈥渃oopetition鈥 can improve the health of the community
  • Determine which types of relationships can reduce costs across the entire ecosystem
Opportunities & Strategies in a Provider-Owned Health Plan
Many Hospitals and health systems have been developing their own health plans. This interactive discussion will provide insight into the opportunities, investments, planning, strategies, challenges and lessons learned when a health provider decides to provide its own health plan. We will look at things like:
  • Evaluating current capabilities and necessary investments to move into the payer space successfully
  • Understanding the areas that impact this decision including market consolidation, the exchange environment, the current administration and network alignment
  • Identifying the role of the Chief Medical Officer in both the provider and the plan
  • Determining how to approach partners and vendors in this expansion launch
  • Overcoming issues to obtain actionable population and cost data
  • Assessing risk
  • Attracting and retaining the right leadership for this move to be successful
  • Examining the role of the C-Suite and Board of Directors in Such a product launch
What Can the CMO do to Improve Margins?
  • Embrace today鈥檚 emphasis on quality, safety and service
  • Monitor financial metrics closely
  • Examine your Coding Process
  • Initiate a compliant documentation management program
  • Assess programs for employees
  • Monetize certain areas of your hospitals 鈥 dialysis, rehab, imaging
  • Review your Chargemaster
  • Utilize your electronic health records in an effective and efficient manner
  • Examine energy costs
  • Create a 鈥渉ealthy community鈥 program
Technology = Better Care & Reduced Costs
Technology 鈥 whether mobile, cloud computing, big data analysis, systems software, or medical device advancements 鈥 is a tool that can aid healthcare organizations in providing better care while reducing costs. However, choosing wisely and parsing through the promises of sales representatives requires expertise in house. Someone must be able to evaluate new potential systems, plan implementation programs, and know when and how to push back on vendors when problems occur. Providers and Payers also need to optimize the systems they currently have to be sure they are getting the most value possible and not searching for tools that should already be in place. This session will provide best practices and lessons learned from various CMOs and CMIOs.
