In the post-ACA era, aligning physicians with organizational goals appears to be gaining traction in health systems and hospitals nationwide. Based on a February survey of the HealthLeaders Media Council, comprising executives from healthcare provider organizations across the country, physician alignment remains a complex challenge.
Even as value-based care continues to take effect, clinical integration or alignment is quickly emerging from a need to ensure quality, cut costs, and drive referrals across health systems and hospitals. Directly employing physicians has been one of the main strategies healthcare leaders are using to improve physician alignment with health systems.

The shift to value-based care is one of the most significant financial, cultural and technological challenges ever faced by the U.S. healthcare system—and it will affect every stakeholder in the system. Healthcare providers can no longer focus solely on process-oriented measures and instead need metrics that gauge progress to deliver high-value care. This healthcare executive report provides three steps hospital executives can take now as they transition from volume to value and break down silos to create the infrastructure, processes and workflows required to succeed.

Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital achieved a substantial $438,000 reimbursement improvement in just 3 months by taking advantage of TruBridge’s Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Training. Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital is an 85 bed community hospital located in Sweetwater, TX with annual revenue of $42 million. As the executives at this facility noticed a discrepancy in patients’ charts and the level of care the patients received, they knew something needed to change. TruBridge was able to make a dramatic difference in clinical documentation and capture the earned reimbursements.

Medicare spend per beneficiary (MSPB) information is a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services metric that reflects the average cost of an episode of care for Medicare patients. This measure is important to consider as part of a hospital’s national balanced scorecard, as it reflects executives’ efforts to transform the healthcare delivery system and manage the full continuum of care, including the prominent shift from inpatient to outpatient utilization.

Change is commonplace within the healthcare industry. Executives are faced with many of the traditional challenges of operating hospitals. Now emerging external factors like the HITECH Act (meaningful use), the Affordable Care Act and an aging U.S. population are pushing providers to change the frameworks in how they view and solve these traditional problems.
Creating a state-of-the-art clinical documentation improvement (CDI) program isn’t just about boosting coding accuracy. It’s a key strategy in managing the transition from volume-based to value-based care, say healthcare leaders. That transition is a risky endeavor that is putting hospital and physician financial performance to the test. As hospitals participate in new care and business models aimed at improving value, leaders must ensure that their organizations are able to maintain reimbursement levels, effectively treat the chronically ill—especially in outpatient settings—and gather accurate data that will allow them to assess performance and segment their varying populations. While some organizations often believe they are leaving revenue on the table because of documentation and coding issues, CDI offers numerous opportunities for improving financial performance, finds a recent HealthLeaders Media survey of 149 healthcare executives at provider organizations.
A recent Health Leaders survey sheds light on the top 5 workforce initiatives healthcare executives across the country are using for successful quality of care and labor cost improvements. Learn how these leading strategies can help your hospital.
HealthLeaders' survey on workforce management queried leaders from a cross-section of U.S. healthcare organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician organizations, and long-term care/skilled nursing facilities. The 150 respondents represent executives across all disciplines — administration, clinical, operations, finance, marketing, and information. In the next three to five years, hospitals, health systems, and other patient service providers expect to augment their time-and-attendance and payroll systems with integrated applications that enable more sophisticated data crunching around labor analytics, acuity management, and staffing assignments. The goal? To convert the workforce from overhead to asset — a flexible, agile asset that will help organizations succeed in an increasingly demanding regulatory and competitive environment.
In the rough-and-tumble world of community and rural hospitals, the phrase “innovate or get left behind” is no longer a scary suggestion thrown out by expensive consultants, but a daily reality for CEOs. Rocked by reform and big changes in areas including financing, care models, and population trends, chief executives are getting used to making bold leadership decisions on a regular basis.

Platform businesses are reshaping our economy and disrupting entire markets by seamlessly connecting buyers and sellers. However, processing payments and the exchange of value on a platform or marketplace can be challenging.
Stripe commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the challenges that platforms and their sellers face, and the solutions they seek. Through a global online survey of 2,030 platform sellers and four in-depth interviews, Forrester found that platforms struggle to provide their sellers with much-needed payment capabilities, reporting, and customer support services with in-house resources alone. Meanwhile, sellers demand that platforms provide these services and will prefer platforms that are service-rich over platforms that are service-poor.
• The complexities of managing a platform force executives to divert resources, which stalls growth.
• Going global is easier said than done.
• Sellers will flock to platforms that simplify the process of sellin

Tips and best practices for data analytics executives
Organizations today understand the value to be derived from arguably their greatest asset—data. When successfully aggregated and analyzed, data can unlock valuable insights, solve problems, improve products and services, and help companies gain a competitive edge. However, analytics executives face significant challenges in collecting, validating and analyzing data to deliver the right analytic insight to the right person at the right time.
This e-book is designed to help. First, we'll explore the growing expectations for data analytics and the rise of the analytics executive. Then we'll explore a range of specific challenges those executives face, including those around data blending, analytics, and the organization itself, and offer best practices and strategies for meeting them.
Delivering personalized customer experience remains the top business challenge for communications
service providers (CSPs). Ovum's recently published 2018 ICT Enterprise survey saw almost all CSP
IT executives interviewed identify delivering personalized customer experience as one of their three
most important business challenges for the next 18 months. This trend emphasizes the high priority
CSPs place on how customer relationships are managed. However, several factors have an impact on
CSPs' ability to identify and then deliver customers' core needs. These include understanding the data
sets they should focus on; collecting, cleansing, and consolidating these data sets; and having the
right expertise to mine the data sets.
The days of data being narrowly defined as highly structured information from a few specific sources is long gone. Replacing that notion is the reality of a wide variety of data types coming from multiple sources, internal and external, to an organization. All of it is in service of providing everyone from IT, to line-of-business (LOB) employees, to C-level executives with insights that can have an immediate and transformative impact.
Hear the highlights from industry leaders presented their experience in digital transformation at Reinventing Financial Services 2019. Hearing from executives leading IT, operations, and lines of business from companies such as USAA, Bank of America, HSBC, Prudential, and many others in this session, we’ll cover the strategies and tactics for building the platforms necessary for reinventing customer experience, empowering employees and creating te
Over the last decade, the enterprise analytics landscape has dramatically
transformed. Vendors have come and gone, and platforms have
continually expanded their offerings to include new functionality and
keep pace with the demands of the businesses they serve. Originally
envisioned as an IT-centric tool for enterprise reporting, analytics today
has evolved into a business solution—empowering a range of users
across every line of business, including front-line employees, field
personnel, and executives.
The rise of self-service analytics over the past decade has played a key role in promoting a data-driven mindset
within every business function. However, this practice is limited to a skilled few. The vast majority of business
professionals lack the time, analytical skills, or inclination to conduct their own analyses, and fail to effectively use
analytics on a day-to-day basis. The result? Despite decades of investments, BI adoption at most organizations
remains at 30%.
The failure of e
With trends such as big data, artificial intelligence and IoT dominating
today’s business technology headlines, the buzz around enterprise
mobility (now considered known and familiar) may have lessened, but
its importance has not. Consider its key role in today’s top tech trends,
and then also consider this. According to an Oxford Economics survey
of 500 senior IT executives, CEOs, and other senior managers, 80%
say workers cannot do their jobs effectively without a mobile
device. The same survey shows:
82% say mobile devices are critical to employee productivity
82% say mobile devices are critical to agility and the speed of decision making
76% say mobile devices are critical to customer service and satisfaction
75% say mobile devices are critical to innovation and collaboration
70% say mobile devices are critical to employee satisfaction
and 70% say mobile devices are critical to revenue growth.
