Lehigh Valley Health Network to discuss clinical and organizational transformation at “Hospital of Tomorrow” event

The hospital of tomorrow will do much more than provide just-in-time care for patients. It will also provide just-in-time interventions that will keep populations healthy as well as navigate the sick through their illnesses so that they can avoid a hospital admission.

Leaders from the Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), an award-winning health system in eastern Pennsylvania, have done more than alter their approach to care as they planned for value-based reimbursement. They’ve also created a population health and advanced analytics firm — Populytics — to help LVHN and other health systems gain the insight they need to succeed in the new era of fee-for-value.

Greg Kile, senior vice president of insurance and payer strategies at LVHN and Allison Yudt, director of value-based contracts at Populytics, will discuss how data informs care and how wellness leads to success at the U.S. News Hospital of Tomorrow conference in an Optum case study session.

Positioning LVHN for the inevitable future meant making changes across the care continuum. The health system developed community care teams, established ambulatory care management processes and instituted patient centered medical homes. They also invested in population health management services via their Populytics arm for predictive modeling, benchmarking, risk stratification and medical expense management. Populytics’ analysis also helped them engage and incentivize their physicians to work toward the triple aim of better care, better cost and better health.

LVHN is creating value and streamlining care for their patients. And they’re extending their insights to the broader healthcare communities.
