Current Webinars Available On-Demand:
Just What are the Barriers to Broader Adoption of Telehealth: Results from the WEDI Survey:Attend to hear the results of WEDI’s recent survey exploring the barriers to the broader adoption of telehealth. The Telehealth Workgroup conducted the survey in the fall to learn from providers, payers, and patients about the advantages and disadvantages they have experienced or perceive related to the delivery of health care services through telehealth. With 200 responses, the results give insights into what the industry can do to further expand telehealth services. As attendees, you will also get the opportunity to provide your input on your experiences with telehealth.

Enabling Hybrid Electronification in Healthcare Payments and Remits with AI: What are healthcare’s options when paper remits and payments remain? “Operationalizing AI” in payment processing can bring true value to the industry. Learn how AI and deep learning can be applied to image processing and payment workflows from payers to providers.

Eligibility & Benefits 101: An EDI 101 webinar on the 270/271 Eligibility and Benefit Inquiry and Response transaction. This webinar covers the 270/271 business scenarios that can be addressed along with an open dialogue regarding questions surrounding the current 5010 version. The Eligibility & Benefits Subworkgroup co-chairs provide some basic technical information as it relates to the business contexts supported by the 270/271 transaction itself.

Understanding MACRA, MIPS and APMs:By the end of the presentation, attendees will be able to:
1. Identify the four categories of value-based reimbursement transforming provider economics under MACRA and payer industry trends.
2. Articulate the role of effective data capture to determine the value of services and healthcare reimbursement under population-based payment (PBP) models.
3. Formulate strategies that align with MACRA quality and value measurement among organizational leaders.

GAO Report on Patient Matching: Health care providers increasingly share records electronically. It can be hard to match records to the right patient, and mistakes can have consequences. Inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistently formatted data can make record-matching difficult. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) explored possible solutions, such as requiring a specific format for recording a patient’s name and address, and sharing best practices for record-matching. On this webinar representatives from GAO provide an overview of their report and what they found during the course of their work.

Your Questions Answered: The Interoperability and Patient Access Proposed Rule: On February 11, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed policy changes supporting its MyHealthEData initiative to improve patient access and advance electronic data exchange and care coordination throughout the healthcare system. The Interoperability and Patient Access Proposed Rule outlines opportunities to make patient data more useful and transferable through open, secure, standardized, and machine-readable formats while reducing restrictive burdens on healthcare providers. This webinar is presented by Alexandra Mugge, Deputy Chief Health Informatics Officer at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and includes an overview and answers your questions about the proposed rule.

AMA’s Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI):Seth Blumenthal and Nathan Clairmont from the American Medical Association discuss the Integrated Health Model Initiative (IHMI).
The AMA seeks to move medicine forward by driving improvements within healthcare data interoperability. IHMI’s vision is to:
1) Develop a unique methodology to produce clinically validated, market driven interoperability solutions at the pace of innovation.
2) Leverage an open, community based clinical review process to ensure fitness and consensus of proposed standards.
3) Focus efforts on data portability and common data model standards.
4) Marshal the unique attributes and resources of the AMA to establish an industry leading initiative that is self-sustaining.
