Managed Care and Revenue Officers
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 $3,295 for two consecutive meetings.
