Panel "Analytics in Health Care: From Insights to Outcomes"
Analytics may be descriptive, predictive or prescriptive and are described as the systematic use of data and related business insights developed through applied analytical disciplines to drive fact-based decision making for planning, management, measurement and learning. Many of the challenges facing the U.S. health care system can be attributed to ineffective sharing, gathering and use of health data and information. This panel of experts will address the many facets of health care analytics and how they are being used to improve efficiency, reduce costs and make for a safer health system.
∙ Ways that analytics can guide future strategy
∙ Understand how to improve clinical effectiveness and patient satisfaction

Panel "Does Meaningful Use Mean Meaningful Change?"
Unlike the first stage of the meaningful use incentive program, for which providers had to demonstrate they were capable of performing certain tasks, stage two will require practices to actually perform those tasks. As this deadline looms beginning in January 2014 with a deadline of October 2014, hear from providers that are ready to demonstrate stage 2 MU and those still in the planning process. Panelists will cover practical strategies to navigate the various requirements to make sure you and your organization are ready for stage 2 MU.
∙ Strategies for patients to view their paperless record
∙ How to effectively send reminders to foster preventative care
∙ Ensuring secure data exchange while improving quality of care

Episode 6 « iHT² Health IT Webinar - Leveraging Meaningful Use to Accomplish Practice Transformation 12.11.12
The Emory Clinic has had the benefit of electronic medical record capabilities for close to 20 years. With the implementation of our current EMR in 2005, certain tools have been adopted quickly, while others have been slower to be incorporated in the day to day work flow of the average practice. As Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records became an integral part of the US Healthcare Reform initiatives, leadership of The Emory Clinic began to understand that constructive incorporation of the required program elements into daily practice workflow would require a very intentional redesign of that workflow. Given the size of the practice (close to 2000 providers) and its geographic dispersion, coupled with the integration with Emory Healthcare’s multiple hospitals, the team knew that this redesign would take tremendous coordination, planning and execution of process improvement methodology. The faculty practice operations team joined forces with a local consulting team that utilized a very disciplined process improvement method to redesign, standardize and implement a practice wide workflow that created consistent experiences for patients, allows providers to qualify for Meaningful Use achievement, and set the stage for future workflow improvements. The leadership team from Emory will share the background, decision making, strategic planning and execution methods used during this project.
• Benefits of standardization of workflow in a large multi-specialty practice
• Process Improvement strategies that can help create engagement for change
• Balancing standardization and customization in the practice environment
• Application of Meaningful Use requirements in the ambulatory faculty practice setting
