Over the last eight years, Dignity Health Telemedicine Network has managed change and innovation while rapidly adopting new technology for care delivery across the entire continuum. This session will discuss quality metrics and outcome measures including dashboard development, continuous quality improvement, and feedback tools utilized to manage and improve a telemedicine network.

Transitioning to a New Electronic Health Record: Data Conversion Strategies to Engage Providers and Operations
Michael Sheinberg, MD, Medical Director, Lehigh Valley Health Network Epic Implementation, Lehigh Valley Physician Group
Jennifer Schlegel, MSN, RN, Senior Business Analyst, Enterprise Analytics, Lehigh Valley Physician Group
Organizations implementing clinical data systems increasingly face the challenge of migrating data from their legacy platforms as tech-savvy clinicians demand the data be converted and ready to use immediately. It’s not an unreasonable demand, as years of clinical and operational data often contain critical historical and clinically necessary elements that can prime the use of the new system with pre-populated information. However, migration often poses the question of “Which data do you really need?” as the answer cannot be “All of it.” In this session, presenters from Lehigh Valley Physician Group will discuss the analysis, governance, decision making, and change management that contributed to their successful data migration, with an emphasis on quality vs. quantity.

Leveraging Data for Information-Driven, Value-Based Decision Making
Gregory Spencer, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Medical Information Officer, Crystal Run Healthcare
Louis Cervone, Director, Business Intelligence, Crystal Run Healthcare
With the rise of value-based care, organizations need to extract data from disparate sources to make informed and cost-effective clinical and operational decisions. Crystal Run Healthcare views its enterprise data warehouse as a critical component of its shift to value-based care, including its participation in a Medicare Shared Savings Plan (MSSP) accountable care organization (ACO). This session will demonstrate how an enterprise data warehouse can take the guesswork out of countless initiatives, including risk management, payer negotiations, population health, and site selection.
