Kedar Mate, M.D., chief innovation and education officer for the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and assistant professor, Department of Medicine, Weill Cornell Medical College, discusses practical, easy-to-use tools enabling frontline clinicians to control costs. Specifically, he details the advantages of continuous value improvement over other cost-control methods and why clinician involvement and clinical analytics are key to the effort.
Harvard Business School professors Michael Porter and Robert S. Kaplan will explain why bundled payments represent a real fix to today's broken health care system and outline how bundled payments will trigger competition between providers to create value where it truly matters-for individual patients experiencing specific conditions.
David Cutler and Robert Huckman discuss insights and lessons on how to leverage IT investments to drive meaningful operational changes in health care. Organizations must take a three-step approach: identify improvement opportunities, gather and analyze data, and implement organizational change. These actions can result in more efficient, passive data collection, improved business intelligence, streamlined workflows, and better-aligned business models.
Robert Mecklenburg describes the barriers and systemic defects that make health care unaffordable and detail how proactive employers have taken charge by forming marketplace collaboratives. The results to date are promising — improved quality, reduced waste and cost, and accelerated change in health care delivery.
