Christiana Care Health System’s Terri Steinberg, MD, and clinical policy expert, Don Casey, MD, from Medecision to offer insight on best practices in population health and care management

DALLAS and LAS VEGAS – March 6, 2018 – Medecision, the leader in care and population health management solutions for risk-bearing entities, today announced that the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) has selected a Medecision client and a Medecision thought leader for highly coveted speaking slots at the HIMSS 2018 conference, March 5-9 in Las Vegas.

On March 6 at 1 p.m. PT, Medecision client, Terri Steinberg, MD, MBA, Chief Health Information Officer at Christiana Care Health System, one of the largest health systems in the United States, will host “Sustainable Population Health: One Health System’s Journey.” An update to her popular 2016 HIMSS presentation, this session will outline how the health system evolved its population health and care management operations, supported by Medecision’s Aerial™.  Today, Christiana’s centralized CareLink operation manages more than 100,000 members and patients. Dr. Steinberg’s presentation will be held in the Sands Show Room in the Venetian Convention Center.

Additionally, clinical policy expert and Medecision’s Chief of Clinical Affairs, Don Casey, MD, MPH, MBA, FACP, FAHA, will offer an overview of the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association’s new hypertension guidelines, which he co-authored. “New 2017 Hypertension Guidelines: HIT Implications,” to be held on March 8 at 2:30 p.m. PT in the Sands Convention Center, Hall G, Booth 9947, will discuss the nation’s hypertension-focused quality improvement initiatives, review the major points of the guidelines and detail the key implications for healthcare organizations’ care quality initiatives.

These sessions are just part of Medecision’s robust agenda at the conference, where it will showcase its powerful approach to helping healthcare organizations prepare for and manage risk in value-based care contracts. Located in booth #4629, Medecision will:

  • Showcase recently launched applications to broaden the value of the innovative Aerial platform, helping clients modernize care management programs, improve operational efficiency and lower costs;
  • Demonstrate how leading care and population health management teams use Aerial to define current and rising risk within populations and then intervene to reduce re-admissions, improve reimbursement and drive compliance; and
  • Discuss Aerial Advisory Service offerings and Medecision’s team of national experts who can assist in care model transformation for value-based care operations.

“While healthcare organizations recognize the importance of value-based care that can scale, many still haven’t mastered the basics – like risk stratification, automated solutions and processes, utilization management, and consumer engagement in the care process. Having worked with the country’s most progressive providers and payers, we know how to improve these processes and deliver clinical and financial results,” said Deborah Gage, CEO and President at Medecision. “We look forward to sharing these successes with Drs. Steinberg and Casey at this year’s HIMSS conference and beyond.”
