DRVS Hands-On Workshop: Making Your Data Work for You

10:00 AM - 3:30 PM

A 4.5-hour hands-on workshop designed to take your understanding and usage of DRVS to the next level. Equally appropriate for Health Center, Primary Care Association, Consortium, or Health Center Controlled Network staff, the first part of the day will set the stage for proactive data hygiene.  Ensure the highest credibility of your data while working alongside your teammates and peers; we will incorporate your most strategic measures into a manageable plan for regular validation. Once this foundation has been established, the course dives into DRVS tools; providing detailed instruction and hands-on support to build out registries, scorecards, cohorts, targets, and dashboards. Azara staff will provide coaching and assistance to the small group teams as they as they build out their tools in DRVS.  Come prepared to problem-solve, build your data hygiene plan, network with your peers and use the DRVS tools to create visualizations of your data to meet the unique needs of your center.

Lunch included from 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM.

Data-Driven Value-Based Care

10:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Value-Based care is no longer a question in the ever-shifting reimbursement landscape of community health.  Are you prepared to manage your value-based contracts in a way that maximizes your success?  This 2.5-hour workshop will explore various value-based care models and their practical application to individual health centers’ operations. Successful health center leaders will need to prioritize contracts; and when held accountable for patient outcomes, track their patient populations beyond their care domain. We will discuss the challenges and opportunities of integrating and leveraging clinical data with external data sources such as HIE, ADT and payer enrollment and claims. Hear lessons-learned from conversations with external data providers and learn how to track contract performance to anticipate how much of the available incentive money will be garnered by the end of the period.  Attendees will leave the session with insights for prioritizing and translating their existing contracts into actionable management and data visualization strategies. 

Lunch included from 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM.

Sustainable Care Management in the Community Health Setting - FULL

1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Care management in the community health setting can take many different forms. Knowing the goals of the health center and the characteristics of the population it serves will help define the most optimal program. In this 2.5-hr workshop we will examine models of care management and coordination, discuss the needs and challenges of program design and the identification of at risk and rising risk populations. We will also highlight tools to support staff prioritization and outreach management.  This workshop explores how to use care management to succeed in value-based contracts while also providing the additional care needed for your most vulnerable patients.  Come prepared to share your approach, successes, questions, and lessons-learned with your peers and move care management in your organization to the next level.

Lunch included from 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM.
