PAST EVENTS IN THE SERIES


You’ll See the Doctor Now: Hospital at Home

Moving from paying for volume to value has been in the works for many years. Progress was slow owing to regulation, inertia, and the sheer complexity of healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the transition with the rapid adoption of virtual care services, revised federal regulations, and a forced digital transformation.

To examine these changes and the opportunities ahead, join the Medical Alley Association for two discussions focused on value-based care. First, we will examine the impact of rapid growth in virtual care and the challenges and opportunities for better integrating it into value-based arrangements. The second will explore recent changes to the Stark Law and Anti-Kickback Statute and the opportunities for patients to realize the benefits of value-based care. It will also examine further changes to enhance the transformation to value-based care.

SOLD OUT - Turning Passion into Action: Leading on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Many organizations throughout Medical Alley and the country are focusing on integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into their operations, across their business, in their hiring practices, and how they engage and target resources in communities. For DE&I initiatives to truly be successful, rather than an empty pledge or checkbox, there are significant steps an organization need to take – such as establishing leadership alignment and direction on the mission and establishing clear metrics that can be measured over time – both for internal and community-based initiatives.

In this session of Bringing the Future Forward, you’ll hear from Medical Alley organizations who are leading on embedding DE&I efforts into the core of their mission and strategies for successfully integrating these into existing processes throughout an organization.

Reducing Disparities in Maternal Care Outcomes through Partnerships and Innovation 

The United States is in the midst of confronting an uncomfortable and unacceptable reality: we are the only industrialized nation that has a rising maternal mortality rate. Even more alarming, however, is that women of color are up to three or four times as likely to die from a pregnancy related complication as white women – a gap that persists across education and income levels. 

Successfully addressing these disparities will require insight, expertise, and innovation from the entire healthcare community. Establishing successful partnerships, improving access, leveraging technology, and connecting with the community are a few of the key pieces to making real improvements in maternal outcomes for all women – but especially women of color. Medical Alley organizations are leading in this effort and are committed to accomplishing this goal. 

This Bringing the Future Forward session focuses on the innovative work being done by Medical Alley organizations – and their partners – to reduce disparities in maternal outcomes through collaboration, innovative care delivery methods, technology, and connecting with communities and populations most impacted.

The 1-Click Patient Experience: How Experience Design is Improving Outcomes

Long ago, banks realized that adding a second teller reduced wait times by a whopping 95%, and this dramatically improved customer satisfaction and retention. There is a long explanation to why that is but, most importantly, it shows that improving the user experience can have unexpectedly large impacts. Amazon has become famous for their 1-click technology that has made ordering just about anything almost frictionless. 

Bold healthcare innovators are bringing these experiences to healthcare and, as a result, are creating competitive edges for their companies, leading to more satisfied patients and customers. 

In this Bringing The Future Forward session, we will discuss how organizations are making these changes and what remains to be done.

[SOLD OUT] Helping Close the Health Inequity Gap Through More Inclusive Clinical Trials

Addressing and eliminating health disparities is a priority for healthcare organizations in Medical Alley –and throughout the nation – and it has gained increased attention during the COVID-19 pandemic and following the murder of George Floyd.

This effort requires a multi-faceted approach from every sector of healthcare, but one that can help make significant strides long-term is increasing diversity within clinical trials. Medical Alley organizations have long been leaders on this effort, and recent events have only furthered their commitment to reaching this goal.

In this Bringing The Future Forward session, hear from Medical Alley organizations on how they are increasing and improving outreach to generate more participation from underrepresented populations, what strategies they are using to partner with other organizations to build more representative clinical trials, and how they are working to advance inclusive research overall.

COVID-19 and Specialty Pharmacy: Impacts and Responses to High-Risk Patient Populations 

While much has been made of the pandemic’s impact on care delivery – telemedicine, remote monitoring, and deferral of needed care – as important, though less discussed, is the pandemic’s impact on pharmacy, especially specialty pharmacy. The complexity of specialty pharmacy with multiple stakeholders, complex supply chains, and evolving payment and business models has required radical rethinking due to the pandemic.

In this Bringing the Future Forward session from the Medical Alley Association, hear from specialty pharmacy stakeholders on how they have adapted to the effects of COVID-19 for high-risk patient populations and are preparing for a post-pandemic world of care delivery.

The Patient Will See You Now: Moving From Patient to Consumer Centricity

The house call was once common – the doctor would visit the patient, evaluate their condition, and prescribe treatment. Today, a doctor’s visit – or, rather, an office visit – requires traveling to a specific location. An entire industry has developed to bring convenience and cost savings to consumers of healthcare by delivering care anywhere. But, many regulatory, workflow, and behavioral issues stand in the way of delivering healthcare fully in the way consumers seek.

In this Bringing The Future Forward session, we explored those barriers, the promise of care anywhere, and its limits. Additional discussion will look at how these emerging technologies and practices are changing the business model of health systems that have spent years optimizing for in-person care delivery.
