Dr. Wini Hayes, CEO of Hayes, Inc., and Ms. Dee Donatelli, Senior Vice President, Provider Services, Hayes, Inc., are headed to Orlando, FL this month for the 2013 Spring IDN Summit and Reverse Expo. This spring’s theme is fostering accountability, a nod to the recognition that today more than ever accountability impacts the decisions made in the healthcare supply chain.
If you’re going, don’t miss the Clinical Integration Track: Clinical Variation Standardization Experiences on Monday, April 22, from 2:30 to 3:30 pm. Dr. Hayes and Dr. Richard Vath, CMO of FMOLHS in Baton Rouge, LA, will be discussing how Hayes and FMOLHS collaborated on an evidence-based initiative that revolutionized FMOLHS’ approach to managing physician preference items (PPIs). They’ll present a case study that focuses on the success that FMOLHS experienced with evidence-based standardization and utilization management of surgical mesh that resulted in a strong buy-in from the physicians and substantial cost savings.
On Wednesday, April 24, Dee will be moderating an idea exchange in emerging value analysis trends from 8:30 to 10:00 am. Many new value analysis initiatives are being driven by the Affordable Care Act. In this interactive presentation, Dee will engage participants to share the trends and best practices in today’s healthcare delivery environment that are having the most impact in their organizations. If your organization is confused about value analysis best practices, make time in your schedule for Dee’s presentation.
If you’re attending this month’s summit, we want to connect with you, so be sure to drop by and say hello. And, as we’ve done at past IDN Summits, we’ll be live blogging about some of the hot issues and potential solutions being talked about by our colleagues.
