9:15-10:15Positively Impacting Your Revenue CycleChristi Rushnell, VP of HFHP Information Services
Cerene Willett, Systems Analyst, HIT 
-- HealthFirst, Inc
Commonly referred to as the Revenue Cycle, hospital organizations are concentrating hard on bringing in the cash.  Having the right people and processes has a huge impact on the revenue cycle of a health care organization.  So too does having the right tools available, assisting staff in getting the job done right.  Today we will examine the "revenue cycle" spectrum and the tools installed for each process.
10:15-11:15Going Beyond Denial ManagementMarci Jackson, Manager, Performance Improvement Portal,
-- Premier Inc
While organizations focus on getting the bills "out the door" by capturing charges and keeping charge masters updated, there is increased pressure for metrics and benchmarks to gauge cash performance. Focusing on bridging operational and financial performance, this presentation will introduce a methodology of analyzing and improving revenue cycle results highlighting indicators to pinpoint the root cause for payment delays and denials. I will focus on a denial management technique and help others to understand how to apply the technique going beyond denial management. The presentation will lay out a specific technique and show others how to create the tool within their own hospital. Finally, document the value of this technique through real life case studies. This practical technique will improve AR processing, reduce payment delays and accelerate cash flow on an ongoing basis.
12:15-1:15Using the Project Management Office to improve patient care at Halifax HealthWoody Walker, Director, Information Technology
-- Halifax
How Halifax Health is using the Project Management Office to work closely with the business and clinical managers to improve processes.
Through process optimization, Halifax will show how setting goals for project management and measuring those goals when the project completes helps drive more successful projects.
1:15-1:30Dessert & Beverage Break
1:30-2:30Driving Change Management to Optimize the Return on an IT Investment

Tiana Bouley, Senior Client Solution Manager
Marie Weissman, Consulting Manager
-- Performance Solutions, GE Healthcare

 We will be going through the Change Management process, workflow improvement opportunities, eliminating hours of redundant tasks and tasks not related to patient care, and a case study. 
2:30-3:30Simulation Modeling of Efficiency Gains With Kiosk UseDuane Steward, PhD, University of Central Florida
David Milov, MD, Chief, Clinical Information Systems, Nemours  
Discrete-event-modeling Simulation (DEMS) provides evidence that kiosk utilization has a positive impact on patient experience and care delivery. Results of DEMS study of kiosks for self-check-in and self-check-out are presented that illustrate how such analysis provides a rigorous systematic approach to understanding clinical system behaviour, patient throughput and resource use optimization. Average, range, variance and additional metrics are provided as examples of parameterization made available by this methodology for decision support in planning, monitoring and maintenance of workflow and resource usage. In this case study, the impacts of kiosks on patient throughput and resource utilization are quantified and determinants of success brought to light. The iterative nature of the analysis process and validation are exposed. Following the presentation of the specific kiosk analysis, extension and reuse of such studies are discussed and illustrated by a quick tour de force of current research applications.
