Together with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Health Research & Educational Trust will share the results of a survey that studied the extent to which U.S. hospitals use a range of recommended patient and family engagement strategies, such as giving access to medical records, having 24-hour visitation policies and conducting nurse shift-change reports at the patient's bedside.

  • Moderator: Maulik Joshi, DrPH, President, Health Research & Educational Trust
  • Dominick Frosch, PhD, Patient Care Fellow, Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation

Trust But Verify – the Value of Eligibility Review
Using Dependent Eligibility Audits for Compliance and Savings

As hospitals' employee health care benefit costs continue to rise, and compliance issues grow in magnitude, a strategy to keep both in check is vital. A rigorous dependent eligibility audit plays an important role in this strategy. On average, 4 to 8 percent of dependents enrolled in an employer health plan are not truly eligible for coverage under plan guidelines.

Join us for a discussion with Baptist Health in Louisville, Ky., to learn how it used a dependent eligibility audit to target this waste, and now uses audits as part of an ongoing effort to keep health care benefit costs under control.

You'll Learn:

  • What a dependent eligibility audit is and why a hospital should consider performing one
  • Real-world ROI data from a hospital that conducted one
  • How to leverage technology to make this type of audit a routine part of the onboarding process
  • The benefits of system standards and how this process can shape internal culture

Speakers:
Mike Daugherty, Director of Corporate Benefits, Baptist Health
John Webb, Managing Director, HMS Employer Solutions

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

Volunteers are a valuable part of every hospitals workforce. With proper training, department engagement and supervision, volunteers can be incorporated as a team member into any hospital department. The Volunteer Ambassador Program is a highly successful, compassion-based and service-oriented improvement initiative. Ambassadors can be in direct patient contact roles and impact the patient family experience. The ambassadors assist both the staff and families with support service, which are non-clinical in nature and also help identify potential concerns/complaints that can be dealt with while the patient/family is still receiving care.

Faculty: Angela Berns, Manager, Volunteer Services, UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's and Kathy Berube, CAVS, Director of Volunteer Services, Maine Medical Center
