Incorporating Responsible Data Principles in Institutional Data Management

HITEQ Center 0 113

Register Here for this Free Webinar

The nonprofit sector produces a wealth of data that plays a fundamental role in the strategic and operational decision making and learning. Nevertheless, many organizations face major challenges with storing and integrating data produced in the field, limiting decision and learning capacity. Data warehousing and integration is an approach that could help fill this gap. However, it raises challenges in terms of responsible data management. This session will discuss the major conceptual, programmatic and technical considerations needed to implement responsible data principles and approaches, at different levels (field, region, global) and scenarios.

Please join Alvaro Cobo-Santillan, Senior Advisor MEAL/ICT at Catholic Relief Services (CRS); Jeff Lundberg, Senior Program Manager at CRS; Paul Perrin, Director and Associate Professor of the Practice at University of Notre Dame; and Gillian Kerr, President Emeritus at LogicalOutcomes Canada in a repeat of their popular session from this year’s MERL TECH DC 2017 Conference.

Need Help Implementing Telehealth? Demystifying Barriers to Telehealth

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

While nearly all health centers have reported the use of electronic health records, only 38 percent are utilizing some type of telehealth technology, most notably to provide mental health services. Despite significant research that telehealth is as effective as in-person visits, there are still many barriers to its use, including the lack of consistent visit reimbursement, technology costs, broadband availability, and resistance to changes to workflow.  This webinar discussed the current state of telehealth use by health centers and the barriers to implementation and use and introduced participants to the national and regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs).

How Health IT Works to Support Patient-Centered Medical Home

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 2266

Click here to listen to an archived recording of this September 26th HITEQ Highlights webinar.

The intent of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) continues to be recognition of primary care practice models that have achieved a mature level of transformation toward improving population health; improving the experience of care for both patient and provider; and reducing the cost of care through greater efficiencies of integrated patient-centered care coordination.   The redesigned process uniquely positions practices, staff and other key stakeholders to focus more on performance and quality improvement, and alignment with public and private initiatives in health care that reward value-based care.  

During this webinar, we highlighted the NCQA PCMH Core and Elective criteria. We also focused on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules and eCQMs, and then ended the learning session by taking a deeper dive to discuss the integral role pre-validated health IT plays in practice transformation and physician alignment with public and private payer programs that reward for value-based care.

6/13 HITEQ Highlights: Health Center Framework for Effective Electronic Patient Engagement

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 1445

Click here to listen to an archived recording of this June 13th HITEQ Highlights webinar.

The role of the consumer/patient is experiencing a significant change within healthcare in which the point of diagnoses and care is being increasingly shifted from the classical care provider setting to a more patient-centered model of health services. This shift in perspective and responsibilities is largely being stimulated by a critical mass in personal health information technology innovation and development, including patient portals, health apps, web-enabled medical devices, and personal fitness and health monitors. Health Centers are very aware of the benefits of patient activation and engagement, but at times need assistance in navigating 1) related regulations associated with policies such as Meaningful Use; 2) incorporation of patient engagement tools and strategies into the organizational workflow; 3) evaluation of patient needs, satisfaction, and activation; and 4) current tools and services available for electronic patient engagement. This webinar will cover the Health IT related policies, organizational changes, personal behaviors, and technical drivers that are converging to usher in a new era of patient empowered healthcare.
