Caravan Health to Host Webinar on Population Health Initiatives Driven by Nurses

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Caravan Health will host an educational webinar, “Ace Quality and Population Health by Doing Less Work, Smarter” exploring how hospitals can utilize the role of nurses in carrying out population health initiatives.

As hospitals make the transition to value-based payments, many primary care physicians feel the weight of added administrative burdens. Caravan Health, the industry leader in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), has overcome this challenge by implementing nurse-led wellness models across its supported ACOs, resulting in reduced physician workloads, improved patient care and inudstry-leading quality scores

Anna Loengard MD, Caravan Health’s chief medical officer, will lead the webinar sharing strategies on how health systems can implement profitable and sustainable quality improvement initiatives through team-based care. Building on this approach, Dr. Loengard will teach attendees how health systems can increase revenue streams by taking advantage of reimbursement opportunities such as incident-to-billing while improving the overall outcomes of patients. 

“We’ve found that many health systems aren’t maximizing the roles of their nurses,” said Dr. Loengard. “Our results show that by dedicating the right training and resources to population health nurses, health systems can better manage physician workloads so that more time is spent treating patients.”

The one-hour webinar will be on Wednesday, March 7 at 10:00 a.m. PST/12:00 p.m. CST/1:00 p.m. EST. For more information and to register visit https://caravanhealth.com/upcoming-events/.
