Best Practices to Implement and Evaluate Cultural Competence Strategies


Presenter:
Martine Hackett, PhD, MPH

Abstract & Bio

 

Abstract
Research demonstrates that management practices and administrative policies designed to build cultural competence can improve patient satisfaction, the quality of clinical care delivered, and overall patient health outcomes. In a value-based payment environment, high performance in cultural competence can lead to increased revenue. What are the ‘best practices’ that work to implement and evaluate culturally competent strategies within healthcare organizations? This session will synthesize and highlight the key factors necessary to improve quality and performance.

Abstract
States can play an important role in improving clinical quality through their role in managing Medicaid as well as through state purchasing and health care regulation.

Plenary Session #3:
Affordability: The New Innovation Imperative


Presenter:
Mr. Brian Gragnolati

Abstract & Bio

 

Abstract
Why would a successful health care system change its winning strategies to move toward value-based care? This session will offer a real-life view of one organization’s transformational journey in the name of greater access and affordability for every patient and consumer.

The discussion will focus on the adaptive change required to mobilize key stakeholders in governance and leadership, build collaborative relationships with former competitors and those who pay for care (employers, private insurers and government), all while experimenting with new payment and physician integration models and innovative care coordination initiatives.

Key questions will include:

  • How can an integrated care delivery system, faced with fiscal intermediaries and daily disruption from new entrants to the health care space, regain control of the management and delivery of care in order to do what is best for patients?
  • In the fragmented world of health care – where those who seek care, deliver care and pay for care are rarely aligned ¬– how can a hospital or health care system pivot its overarching strategies and daily approach to care delivery in order to build trust and lasting relationships with consumers?
  • How can new competencies in data analytics, new models for risk and accountable care organizations, and new experiments with self-insured workforces serve as a catalyst for innovation on the payment side and the delivery of better, more consistent and more affordable health care?

Looking at health care through the lens of affordability, this session will encourage individuals and organizations to work together to design a more inclusive, equitable health care system that puts patients first.
