Tabatha Lang, Chief Quality Improvement Officer, will then speak to operations, financial planning and funding streams, data and system reporting and providing treatment to Medi-Cal populations.

We will close the program with Joe McDowell, Project Director with Xtend Healthcare speaking on two healthcare reimbursement themes that have taken center stage for Medicare in 2019

— “pay for performance” based on “attaining patient quality outcomes.” These interconnected clinical and financial “hot topics” highlight the need for compliant processes that support various new and revised Medicare coverage and billing guidelines. Tearing down long term health system operational silos and establishing collaboration of all teams will be discussed. The session focus will be on understanding why changes continue to be hot topics, as well as practical and proven clinical and financial operational procedures to meet the challenges of 2019.
