RowdMap, Inc. Speaks at HIMSS on Using New Data on Populations and Providers to Succeed in New Value Based Payment Models, without IT

LAS VEGAS, Nev., Feb. 8, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via PRWEB – Joshua Rosenthal, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer and Co-Founder at RowdMap, Inc., will be speaking on how healthcare companies can use newly released government data on populations and physicians to better calculate risk and project costs, manage the health of a population and intervene and capture the value they create to succeed in new economic models for value based care, without Information Technology (IT) integration.

The presentation entitled, “No Value Care Meets No IT Needed” will be delivered at the 2016 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), Annual Conference and Exhibition on Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Las Vegas:

The HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition is the leading Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) event with over 40,000 attendees. This year HIMSS is launching the Population Health Knowledge Center dedicated to the people, processes, and technologies that are helping to deliver on the Triple Aim framework of delivering high quality, efficient care for individuals; stifling the growth of expenditures; and improving population health outcomes.

RowdMap, Inc. joins presenters including Intel, Deloitte Consulting LLP, the Mayo Clinic, the Information Delivery Division of the Defense Health Agency and the National Intrepid Center of Excellence at Walter Reed Bethesda.

The presentation will not focus on traditional topics such as IT integration or Triple Aim goals, but instead will focus on using newly released government data to identify, quantify and reduce no-value care and low-value services. Reducing no-value care, which accounts for thirty cents of every dollar spent drives success in new economics models such as value-based programs and shared risk arrangements. The presentation will highlight how this is currently deployed in forty-two states by both payers across all lines of business and providers including primary care groups, specialty groups, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs), all without the need to integrate traditional data such as claims, Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) or Electronic Health Records (EHRs).

“Historically HIT has focused on detailed and often painful efforts to get the most out of problematic data. New data, coupled with new technology are meeting new economic models to completely transform and disintermediate traditional HIT services and products and nowhere does that have more market traction than with public health data for value based care,” said Joshua Rosenthal, PhD, Chief Scientific Office, RowdMap, Inc.
