AHRMM Webinar: Controlling and Managing the Capital Equipment Process

Date: Apr 23, 2019 - Apr 23, 2019


Description:
 The webinar is scheduled for April 23 at 12:00 p.m. Central / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. 
 
Often, purchasing is simply told to “cut an order” after a department has won budgetary approval for a new capital expenditure. When purchasing is involved at the start of the process, it can lead to better value outcomes as well as improved customer experience at the department level.

This session presents ways to develop controls and accountability for the purchase of new and replacement capital equipment and other forms of capital expenditure.  We will review how to obtain value from carefully negotiated terms and conditions, Total Cost of Ownership principles, and how to match user specifications and requirements with the actual purchase, while maintaining the best overall capital quality for an assigned task.

The session will review best practices for reviewing and obtaining capital equipment terms and conditions as well as the use of mileposts from approval through acquisition and installation of major equipment.

This session places purchasing in the driver’s seat, and gives them accountability for the results of the purchase from price and terms, to installation and other considerations.  
 
Learning Objectives
  • Compare your organization’s existing capital acquisition processes to the leading practices explained in this session and revise as needed. 
  • Work and engage with physicians and clinicians at the divisional/departmental  level in your organization
  • Effective use of Total Cost of Ownership to evaluate products beyond price, features and benefits

Module 1: Integrated Strategic-Financial Planning in a Time of Disruption
The disruptive health care environment puts new pressures or organizations’ financial well-being: They need to perform at a top level of efficiency at a time when volume and payment are under pressure and expenditures are growing faster than revenue. At the same time, they need to begin making unprecedented investments in transforming for a future that requires a new digital platform and involves extraordinarily large new competitors.

  • Imperatives of health care transformation in the now, near, and far
    • Now: Improve cost structure, assess scale, identify trapped capital, identify capabilities needed for the future
    • Near: Map financial plan that times shift of investment from strategies for the “now” to strategies for the “far”
    • Far: Achieve system that differentiates on cost and access, develop transformative health care delivery platform

Module 2: Building a Stronger Relationship Between Strategic and Financial Planners
Effectively leveraging the interdependence between strategic planning and financial planning is critical to a health care organization’s success. However financial planners and strategic planners often have different educational and experiential backgrounds, speak different languages, and are separated organizationally.

A strategic plan is only as good as a leadership team’s ability to successfully implement the key initiatives outlined in the document. And a strong financial component that includes capital and operational investments, impact on annual operating expenses and revenues, and overall return on investment is essential to ensure sustainability and long-term success. This session will focus on the important working relationship between strategic planners and their counterparts in finance, who provide critical insights and information necessary for successful planning.
Learning Objectives:

 

  • Describe and implement short- and long-term strategies for building strong relationships with the finance team
  • Establish a clear path for inclusion of finance professionals at multiple stages of the planning process

Key Takeaways:

  • Better relationships between Finance and Planning are at the heart of successful planning processes and plan implementation
  • Finance’s involvement in the planning process must be effectively choreographed to achieve desired results

Webinar: Wednesday, May 22 @ 12 noon Central
Presenter: Burl Stamp

 

 

Module 3: Integrating Strategic and Financial Planning
Effectively leveraging the interdependence between strategic planning and financial planning is critical to a health care organization’s success. Fiscal policy and the financial plan should frame the parameters for strategic planning and the strategic plan should enhance the organization’s financial position. This is a long-term dynamic relationship. However financial planners and strategic planners often have different educational and experiential backgrounds, speak different languages, and are separated organizationally.

Learning Objectives:

 

  • Understand the role of financial planning and fiscal policy in strategic planning,
  • Highlight components of strategic and market-based planning that serve as cornerstones to effective and trusted business plans to enhance the organization’s financial position,

Module 1: New and Emerging Data Sets

Part 1: Webcast Monday, June 24 Noon CENTRAL | TBD, Evariant
In this comprehensive training session, we’ll discuss the past, present, and future of data. Learn how to leverage third party data, such as consumer digital behavior and claims data, to make the most of your existing clinical and financial data. In this session, we will explore opportunities for strategic planning and marketing programs, as well as understand data usage rights.

Part 2: Webcast Thursday, June 27, Noon CENTRAL | Presenter: Kyle Rose, Vice President of Optum Analytics, The Advisory Board
The role of strategic planning has evolved from decision support to decision leadership. As the data needs of health systems expand, strategic planners will be asked by their leadership team to draw meaningful insights from a growing cache of market data. Strategic planners must make sure their market assessments do not simply report market conditions, but actively surface the best growth opportunities and identify the strongest response to emerging market disruptions. We will identify new approaches to modernizing market assessments and highlight new analyses for making them more actionable. 

 

Module 2: Changing Landscape of Inpatient and Ambulatory World

Part 1: Webcast Monday, July 8, Noon CENTRAL | Presenters: Joy Henderson, National Directory Planning Solutions and Susan Shamoun, MPH, Product Manager, Planning Solutions with IBM Watson Health

Sg2, along with a provided based presenter will provide insight to help you make strategic decisions quickly, based upon unique market factors and national health care trends.

 

Module 4: Data Visualization and Storytelling

Part 1: Webcast Monday, July 22, Noon CENTRAL | Presenter: Andrea Simon, Simon Associates Management Consultants
In this module we are concerned less about the “what” you find in the data and more about the “why.” This module is about how to conceptualize the meaning of the data and information so you have relevant insights that resonate with your audiences. It is important to understand how the brain takes data and converts it into stories to make sense of it, enable it to be visualized, and allows it to be shared among others. Further, there are different types of story themes that are important to think about as you frame the data into a story. For health care strategists, the importance of this module is in how we build visualizations and stories out of the data and information; which themes might work best; how to visually communicate them throughout your organization.


Part 2: Webcast Monday, July 29, Noon CENTRAL
 
Presenters: Lee Ann Lambdin, SVP of Healthcare Strategy, Stratasan and Kelly Meigs, Director of Marketing and PR, Tanner Health System
We will use a case study to demonstrate how to use Business Intelligence (BI) and geographic information system (GIS) tools to effectively build a strategic growth plan.

AHRMM Webinar: Clinical Benchmarking: Aligning Supply Chain Initiatives with Clinical Outcomes

Date: Jun 26, 2019 - Jun 26, 2019


Description:
This webinar will be held on June 26 from 12-1pm Central Time / 1-2pm Eastern Time. 
 
In today’s environment where quality of care and cost of care are being so heavily scrutinized, clinical benchmarking is an invaluable tool for healthcare organizations. As health care organizations strive to reduce costs and improve quality, it is necessary to collaborate with your physician and clinician leadership regarding the utilization of clinical benchmarking data. Clinical benchmarking allows leaders to recognize how their performance compares to like-facilities across the nation and clinical peers, so they can better control care and cost across the organization.

This webinar will explore leading practices for clinical buy-in based on subject matter and outline pitfalls to avoid. We will discuss the data sets necessary to mine and present to clinicians in order to maximize success and organically develop procedure formularies to drive consistent care and maximize the highest quality.
 
Learning Objectives: 
  • Identify resources or vendors for which to partner to mine and aggregate data 
  • Describe what data sets are necessary to mine and present to clinicians, depending on your organization’s politics, audience and adaptability to change 
  • Identify utilization opportunities that are aligned with performance improvement
  • Discuss potential pitfalls of clinical benchmarking and how to avoid them

  •  Kelli McRory, Director, Strategic Sourcing - Clinical, Jefferson Health

They will then outline a roadmap to help you start or revamp your digital strategy, and provide ways to create effective and scalable content. You will then learn how to share content tactics and activation ideas using a tradigital approach. The course will end with an overview of what’s coming next and how to prepare.

A variety of health care providers will share real world case examples and resources that apply these insights. Guest speakers will include Lannie Byrd, Chief Operating Officer Team SI; Sharon Line Clary, Vice President of Marketing, AdventHealth; Matt Gunther, Healthcare Consumer Strategy, Product Management, Optum, and Brian Gresh, President, Loyal.

The course will cover the following four topic modules, which include webinars, case examples, discussion board assignments, and access to a library of additional resources (conference session recordings, templates, white papers, articles, etc.).
