The health care sector faces a barrage of cybersecurity threats – and community health centers are no exception. Security breaches, fines, and audits create a complexity of challenges for health centers to navigate. This session features a health center and Health Center-Controlled Network (HCCN) perspective on how cybersecurity threats impact the bottom line. Speakers will highlight the importance of budgeting to accurately reflect the costs of protecting their patients' protected health information (PHI) and to prevent and mitigate against cyber threats. Strategies will also be provided for demonstrating a positive return on investment (ROI) for health centers that adequately protect against cybersecurity threats.
Describe how to accurately budget to protect your health center from cybersecurity threats.
Identify examples of both types of cybersecurity threats that health centers most commonly face in addition to the potential financial impact and cost to health centers.
Describe strategies for demonstrating a positive ROI for health centers that adequately protect against cybersecurity threats.
The American health care system is moving, in fits and starts, to a more value-based pay model. Health centers wishing to participate in value-based pay need to consider two foundational steps: (1) building infrastructure and (2) engaging effectively with payors. This session will discuss initiating and improving the foundational steps of value-based pay.
Identify foundational elements for value-based pay.
Identify attributes of successful value-based pay contracts.
Review data points for value-based pay calculations.
Is your health center working on a long-term strategy for telehealth and remote patient monitoring? This presentation will provide tools and best practices for health centers to develop a long-term strategy for both telehealth and remote patient monitoring. Health center executives will share their experiences in developing long-term strategies for implementing telehealth and remote patient monitoring programs, and identify best practices as well as pitfalls to avoid. This will include information on infrastructure, hardware, EHR interface, workflow as well as what is required for pre-implementation, implementation, and post-implementation phases. Presenters will also provide insight and best practices on the utilization of data and trends, from telehealth and remote patient monitoring, to improve clinical outcomes and negotiate value-based contracts with your health plans in the future.
Identify best practices for developing and implementing a long-term telehealth strategy and solution.
Identify best practices for developing and implementing a long-term remote patient monitoring strategy and solution.
Understand how to utilize data from telehealth and remote patient monitoring to improve clinical outcomes and negotiate value-based contracts with health plans.
