The Healthcare Roundtable

Managed Care and Revenue Officers

The Meetings

The Members formally convene two times per year, spring and fall, for a two-day interactive session. Participants identify the issues they want to explore and the experts they want to hear from. A typical two-day Roundtable seminar will feature 3-5 speakers (outside speakers and/or Members themselves) making presentations on recent trends and innovative projects.

Issues may include topics such as:

  • EPIC conversion – any experience with EPIC’s Contract Management/ Modeling module?
  • Those not on EPIC – how are you sharing information among disparate EMRs? 
  • Contract language that successfully prevents payers from forcing their members away from our hospitals for certain services? – Language to prevent services from being “carved out” by payers?
  • MSSP ACO strategies and solutions for quality documentation and reporting? 
  • If you are participating in the CMS MSSP program, have you utilized any waivers? 
  • How are others preparing for MIPS reporting? Are you entering APM arrangements? Will you be reporting as one group or separately by type of provider?
  • Outside of Medicare, describe the bundled models that you have implemented in your market, and with what payers? – What types of value based payment models have you implemented in your market and with what payers? 
  • Private Exchange evolvement and influence? 
  • Direct to Employer (ACO) offerings? 
  • Narrow network arrangements? – Bundled payment arrangements? 
  • What is the impact of price transparency? 

The participants also enjoy the cross-pollination of ideas during Open Discussion sessions. Members are encouraged to present the issues/problems they are currently facing so that fellow Members can advise one another as peer consultants. During these interactive discussions, Members share new innovations and projects-in-process using a "grand rounds" format.

All Roundtable Meetings are skillfully facilitated to avoid wandering discussions and to promote productive dialogue and the efficient use of time spent "around the table." The "think tank" approach of the Roundtable provides a very high quality educational experience one cannot easily find elsewhere.

The Roundtable Dues, Attendance and Guest Policy

Tuitions at these meetings are covered by yearly membership dues. Meeting attendance must be a high priority. A Member is strongly encouraged to send an appropriate substitute in the event he or she is unable to attend a scheduled Roundtable Meeting.

A Member may bring one guest to any Meeting, particularly an individual who is considering membership. Guest registrations are made in advance (at no additional charge)--limited to four total per Roundtable Meeting.

In order to cover the costs of the semi-annual meetings, including speaker fees, appropriate research, and operating expenses, Members pay $2,995 for two consecutive meetings.

“The open discussion with other members facing similar challenges is truly invaluable. I treasure the friends and insights I've gained from participating in the Roundtable over the past 15 years.”
--Mayumi Fukui, VP of Managed Care, University of Chicago Hospitals & Health System, Chicago, IL

“ I have been a roundtable member for 14 years and without fail I leave every meeting with a tangible idea that allows my hospitals to either generate new revenue or reduce expenses. More importantly, I have made a number of great friends who always feel free to openly share their successes or failures.”
--Member of THR/MCR

“The Healthcare Roundtable has been an invaluable resource. I have been a member for over ten years and it allowed me to build a phenomenal national network of resources. Anytime you have a question or issue, you are immediately able to query a large of group of managed care and net revenue experts from around the country. The organization also provides members a great opportunity to meet and brainstorm about current issues. I have truly enjoyed my participation in the Healthcare Roundtable.”
--Eric D. Shatanof, Corporate VP, Managed Care & Network Development, Baptist Health, Coral Gables, FL
