Care Transitions Network Webinars
Time: Wednesday, April 24, 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. ET
Description: The Care Transition Network provides each enrolled organization with Medicaid Utilization: Services & Cost Reports, which break down utilization and associated costs for their client population. These reports support providers in understanding trends in service utilization, making comparisons between sub-populations and benchmarking costs with similar practice settings to identify potential opportunities for value-based contracting, program design and partnerships.
The Medicaid Utilization: Services & Cost Reports have now been incorporated into each organization’s Care Transitions Network Data Dashboard. In this Data Jam, representatives from partners at Netsmart Technologies will demonstrate the functionality of the utilization reports in the data dashboards.
Participants will learn how to access and navigate the reports within the dashboard, and functions for comparing reports over time. By the end of this webinar, attendees will understand:
- How to access their Cost and Utilization reports in the Care Transitions Network Data Dashboard
- Maximizing the value of the report to their organization
- Changes from the 2016 report
PAT Milestones: 18 & 20
Time: Thursday, May 9, 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m. ET
Description: Care pathways are expected to play a major role in the movement from fee-for-service to value-based payment by providing a mechanism to coordinate care, reduce fragmentation and constrain rising health care costs.
In its simplest for, a care pathway is a standardized set of steps to address a physical health, mental health, substance use disorder and/or social determinant need. For each health condition and social determinant need, a different set of services and treatment targets are created. By standardizing the process of mapping a client’s needs to an evidence-based care plan, providers can reduce unnecessary variability in care provision, increase multidisciplinary collaboration and improve client engagement. However, defining and implementing these standardized processes require a clear strategy in order to achieve results.
During this webinar, Jeff Capobianco, Integrated Health Senior Consultant at the National Council for Behavioral Health and Jane Mullin, Chief Strategic Integration Officer from Jawonio will discuss how care pathways have been integrated into day to day practice at Jawonio and how the continued development and refinement of these care pathways support their preparedness for value-based payments. By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Define care pathways and their key components;
- Understand the process to develop a care pathway;
- Identify barriers and challenges to implementing a care pathway; and
- Apply the care pathway development story and steps in their own provider setting
Change Driver: 1.6.3 Organized, Evidence-based Care (Milestone 11)
Time: Wednesday, May 15, 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. ET
Description: The Care Transitions Network recently released a Value Proposition Tip Sheet to guide organizations through the process of crafting a value proposition – from understanding what a value proposition entails to using it in the real world. In the simplest terms, a value proposition is a positioning statement that explains what benefits your organization provides, for whom they are provided and why your organization is uniquely positioned to provide them. Your value proposition builds the case that you are better positioned to meet the community’s need than your competitors. Sharing your key accomplishments and using compelling data will demonstrate the impact and cost-effectiveness of your services.
During this webinar, we will review the tip sheet and how to make your organization stand out to payers and potential partners. We will also review how components of the value proposition can be applied in developing your Care Transitions Network Exemplary Practice Story. By the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify seven key steps in developing a value proposition for your organization.
- Learn best practices in using your value proposition to help your organization, Independent Provider Association or other collaborative succeed under value-based payment arrangements.
- Apply your value proposition in writing your Care Transitions Network Exemplary Practice Story.
