As the healthcare industry moves toward value-based care, payers are increasingly concerned with clinical outcomes. Health plans are finding that they need to leverage all clinical and administrative data, in addition to claims data, to improve member health and optimize reimbursement within value-based payment models. Harmonizing data across the healthcare continuum presents a significant challenge due to the variety of disconnected data elements that must be connected to get a true 360-degree view of member health. Before healthcare organizations can effectively benefit from the data’s value, the data itself needs to be normalized to achieve semantic interoperability.
Using real-world examples of healthcare data breaches, we will discuss how hospital systems and healthcare providers can strategically implement security design principles to help reduce costs and manage data.
Its a bitter pill to swallow: with the rise of high-deductible health plans and the ability to shop around for care, patients arent loyal to practices the way they once were.

Gain a better understanding of the emerging field of telepsychology, including clinical and distance education applications. Telehealth and telemental health are growing in popularity. Yet, providers and consumers continue to have questions about its appropriateness, efficacy, and how telehealth services work compared to traditional face-to-face encounters. You will benefit from this information by learning about the various formats and modalities of telehealth and how it can be applied to various populations. You will increase your competence to provide these types of services by exposure to best practice standards and guidelines and discussion of associated benefits and challenges. A thoughtful review of pragmatic, ethical, and legal considerations unique to telehealth and telemental health will also be provided along with a review of the research based efficacy of this approach.
