Vision Information Systems CEO Tom Peterson and Strategic
Health Group Managing Director Hank Osowski will comprise the
faculty for an important healthcare webinar exploring the challenges
connected to sharing patient data among physician, hospitals and
insurers as a path to improving patient care.
The webinar is jointly sponsored by Healthcare Web Summit Media and Payers
and Providers and will be held on Thursday, Feb. 20, from 10-11 a.m.
(PST). Participants may register at https://www.managedcarestore.com/summit.htm
or by calling 209-577-4888.
"Residing with providers and payers are mountains of raw data regarding
patient records, encounters and outcomes," says Peterson. "With the
emergence of accountable care organizations and a bundled payment
environment, the need to deploy this data in ways that improve patient
care and outcomes is more critical than ever."
sowski says that in this new environment, patient data needs to be
quickly, accurately and confidently shared "not only with traditional
organizations but between physicians, hospitals, insurers and others."
As such, the Feb. 20 webinar will explore the challenges of sharing data
and aligning incentives and provide a blueprint for an integrated,
virtual sharing of data approach that is commensurate with the changing
Drawing from best practices in data sharing including case studies, the
webinar will look at how data can be aggregated, the importance of
converting raw data into actionable intelligence, and the root causes
that often serve as barriers to data sharing, including what Osowski
calls healthcare's "disconnected data universe." The webinar will also
look at just how much data should be shared. "Too much and it becomes a
burden; too little and it may not be actionable," says Peterson.
Peterson brings to the webinar more than 20 years of experience working
with data for healthcare companies and the Medicare program, from both
the fee-for-service and managed-care perspectives. He has an extensive
background in clinical data related to risk adjustment, including system
design and analysis, provider outreach and training program development.
Osowski is a frequent speaker and author on critical issues facing
Medicaid and Medicare and has provided leadership to commercial,
Medicare and Medicaid health plans for more than three decades. He is a
former senior vice president of corporate development for SCAN Health
Plan and also served as a member of the senior management team at Blue
Cross of California.
