Addressing Avoidable Medicaid ER Overuse Through Rapid Cycle Quality Interventions
The presentation will discuss the use and outcomes of rapid cycle quality interventions to reduce avoidable emergency room use by Ohio Medicaid beneficiaries. Five Regional Collaboratives partner with the Ohio Medicaid program and Medicaid managed care plans to identify priority populations and develop quality interventions for these patients. The framework mirrors the Plan-Do-Study-Act method for improvement with testing change on a small scale, learning from each test, refining the change and implementing the change on a broader scale. The presentation will outline the design, process, and implementation, and will discuss outcomes of the project as well as scalability and sustainability.

Analytics for Breakfast: Improved Outcomes, Lower Costs, and Engaged Consumers
Effective disease and condition management—and the ability to identify those most at risk—can improve wellness and curtail costs to health care providers, consumers, health insurance companies, employers and society at large. Compelling communications, effective treatments and the ability to dive deeper into health care data to identify trends and predict outcomes is a must-have.
But what if your organization has disparate data sources or a manual reporting process? How can you know for sure you're targeting your customers with the right communication campaigns about treatment options…and what if the intended message goes to someone who is disinterested, dissatisfied or simply disregards materials presented in the delivered format?
Find out how applying the power of advanced analytics to your multitude of data is helping health plans:
- Gain a greater understanding of the health characteristics of their entire population.
- Identify those (outside of chronic disease segments) who would most benefit from condition management or wellness programs.
- Create sophisticated automation and processes to communicate with and engage at-risk patients.

How to Create a Healthy High-Performance Culture
Worksite health management is almost ubiquitous. However, many employers will not achieve key health and business goals because their strategies lack support, engage too few employees, and are not integrated into the enterprise. If this gap between aspiration and strategy remains the norm, employers may conclude health management doesn’t yield enough to matter. This would be unfortunate, since very few programs enjoy combined strong leadership support and the full range of known best practices.
This session illustrates what can be achieved by employers who embrace health as a core business value, deploy well-aligned engagement strategies, and offer intensive population-based programs. Companies like Lincoln Industries and Affinia report nearly flat health care cost trends over the past seven years, "bending the trend" to a degree that has eluded most employers. In addition to containing health care costs, these healthier workforces also yield competitive advantages on key employee and business performance indicators.
