Gear up for summer planning with vital info, networking, case examples
HCA’s final major conference of the spring/summer is on June 16, just three weeks away, when we present our signature Technology Symposium and Vendor Showcase in Albany.
You will not want to miss this final chance for gaining new insights to support the strategic thinking you’ll need to do throughout the critical summer planning months as you head into the fall budgeting season. (Our next big conference will be our September Financial Managers Retreat.)
Like many of your peers, you may be struggling a bit with your current technology portfolio to make it plug-in-ready for DSRIP participation and other integrated models. Indeed, according to HCA’s most recent survey of the industry, providers reported the need for IT support to align with health policy directives such as: “becoming interoperable with local providers”; “interoperability to advance initiatives such as bundling and DSRIP”; “community portals to hospitals, managed care plans and patients”; “expand and upgrade the use and availability of mobile devices for all field staff.”
HCA’s Technology Symposium brings a specialized focus on all of these areas of need identified by you and your peers.
As you head into the summer months and gear up for your fall budget planning, this conference is an excellent opportunity to learn about the technology investments you’ll need to think about as you prepare for the future. At the conference, HCA will have ten technology vendors on hand to give you new ideas for product applications.
You’ll also hear from a group of home care agencies who will tell you about the grassroots R&D work they have done to implement various technologies to improve patient satisfaction, care outcomes and cost efficiencies in ways you may not have considered.
State Health Department technology experts will also be on hand to make the connection between technology systems and new payment models like DSRIP, Value Based Payments, Managed Long Term Care, FIDA and Health Homes, including investments and priorities in these areas. You will not want to miss this discussion and critical exchange as HCA simultaneously works to advance legislation that will promote targeted and enhanced investments for home care. Your participation on June 16 will not only provide you with ideas but will help buttress this HCA advocacy priority by giving policymakers a concrete understanding of the very real areas of need for technology investment as part of their program and planning agenda.
You’ll also hear from representatives of Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIOs) and the New York eHealth Collaborative on ways you can better integrate your systems with the larger networks of electronic health records and collaborative partnerships.
Summer is almost here. Take advantage of this last opportunity before September to network with peers, vendors and learn from experts in the field through HCA’s signature education programming.
