Join Karen Crotty, PhD, Hayes Senior Scientific Officer and Senior Director, Evidence Solutions for “Making the Grade: Coverage Policy Challenges and the Hayes Methodology.” The free webinar provides insights into the process of determining our industry-standard Hayes Rating, as well as a “case study” example illustrating practical applications of our reports.
Join Dr. Bernadette Melnyk and Dr. Lynn Gallagher-Ford in this educational Webinar series on the impact of evidence-based practices in healthcare and how to implement them in your organization.
Technologic advances in genetic testing now enable us to examine millions of DNA fragments simultaneously. Although promising, the benefits, limitations, and potential impact on clinical care need to be thoroughly examined.
Hospital and health system leaders operate in a changing healthcare environment. While guiding diverse medical staffs to deliver the highest quality care to patients, they must balance regulatory mandates with organizational demands to gain the most value from each healthcare dollar. Around the nation, physician leaders face common challenges as they strive to transform healthcare delivery, such as:
Reviewing the medical need for genetic tests and writing coverage policies for these complex assays and conditions can be a daunting task. Establishing coverage policies that are based on evidence is essential but how can payers use the limited and inconclusive evidence that is available about genetic tests as a foundation to create a defensible coverage determination? Join us for this 60-minute live webinar as we explore Hayes’ approach to evidence-based evaluation and discuss how you can use our reports when making your critical coverage decisions about genetic and genomic tests.
Gaining physician alignment to make supply decisions that drive out waste and deliver high-quality services is critical to hospital systems’ success in conforming to the demands of healthcare reform. Memorial Hermann, the largest not-for-profit health system in Southeast Texas, with 12 hospitals and numerous specialty programs, is one organization that is exceeding its goals as physician leaders embrace advanced practices in healthcare value analysis.
Hospitals and healthcare systems often struggle in their efforts to reduce healthcare spending. The healthcare environment will be even more challenging in the future as providers seek to meet federal quality and safety mandates, avoid financial penalties, and deliver healthcare services that improve the health of the populations they serve.
