As healthcare organizations develop new programs that blend in-person and virtual care, they’re gaining new insights into the challenges of creating value-based care. Today’s healthcare environment is about health just as much as care, developing services and pathways that address immediate clinical needs while creating strategies that support long-term health outcomes. In this landscape, the emphasis is on connections and collaboration.

Providers offering population health, chronic disease, and health equity programs depend on tools and platforms to bring various services and strategies directly to patients and communities. At the same time, they require that data follow patients through their care journeys, creating a longitudinal record that incorporates data from across the care continuum.

Meanwhile, health plans are also playing an active role in connected health. They are implementing technology that bridges connections between care managers and members and supports a truly digital care experience. By establishing omnichannel communication and information sharing methods, payers are helping members navigate the healthcare system and manage their own health to improve health outcomes and quality of life. 

Our annual two-day virtual summit will explore some of the newest strategies for connecting people to their care providers and the technology enabling connectivity to occur and be integrated more fully into the overall care experience. We’ll talk about payer support for connected health programs and the future of innovation in the space. And we’ll take a look at some of the more innovative programs on the market, from hospitals and health systems down to clinics and small practices.

Panel: Crossing the Digital Divide: Connectivity, Access, & Health Equity
Tuesday, October 18th at 11:00 AM ET
The digital divide can prevent patients from experiencing the benefits of connected care services, and providers must implement strategies to address infrastructure challenges and limitations that prevent more individuals from timely access to quality care, thereby exacerbating health inequities.
How Paramount Transformed Population Health with Real-time Data
Tuesday, October 18th at 12:30 PM ET

Improving member engagement has long been at the top of any payer’s wishlist, and now with hiring challenges, helping staff work top-of-license is also at the top of that list. Paramount’s goals were to improve member engagement reduce health risk to reduce avoidable utilization. Paramount recognized the 3 month lag time in data collected through claims was a limiting factor and implemented a new approach to identify members in need of disease management outreach. This presentation will describe how Paramount used real-time member-reported data to identify members who needed help managing their chronic condition and reached out to them the same day to provide support. Paramount’s Disease Management team saw a 187% improvement in its engagement rate due to the timely and rapid outreach. Member satisfaction rates improved as well. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain why real-time data is necessary for population health teams to improve member engagement and reduce avoidable utilization
  • Identify how automated Deviceless Remote Patient Monitoring collects real-time member health data across Medicare and Medicaid populations
  • Describe how Paramount enabled disease managers to work top of license while positively impacting member engagement and lowering member health risk
