Listening Sessions on MAC Opportunities to Enhance Provider Experience – As part of our 2020 priorities, they are holding a series of listening sessions to gather feedback and improve your experience with the Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) program. Through competitive cost-plus award-fee contract procurements, CMS encourages Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to innovate and respond to provider, practitioner, and supplier expectations in their jurisdictions. CMS wants to hear your feedback to improve processes and enhance interactions with your MAC related to operations, technology, and business functions. They are particularly interested in hearing provider, practitioner, and supplier ideas about actions they could take to improve the overall beneficiary quality of care and customer service experience they may have with the MACs. You can email comments or questions in advance of the listening session to CMSListens@cms.hhs.gov with “MAC Provider Experience” in the subject line. They may address them during the listening session or use them to develop other resources following the session.

Reviewing the Healthcare Analytics Adoption Model: A Roadmap and Recipe for Analytic Maturity – Join Dale Sanders for an update on the Healthcare Analytics Adoption Model. Dale published the first version of this model in 2002, calling it the Analytics Capability Maturity Model. The three intentions at that time are the same as they are today: 1) Provide healthcare leaders with a clear roadmap for the progression of analytic maturity in their organization; (2) Provide vendors with a roadmap to meet the analytic needs of clients; (3) Create a common framework to benchmark the progressive adoption of analytics at the industry level.

Using a Zero Trust Approach to Secure Healthcare – A hospital falling victim to ransomware has become an all too frequent occurrence and one that everyone should be worried about. The WannaCry attack not only took out computer systems at many hospitals worldwide but also demonstrated that ransomware had the ability to compromise medical devices as well as proving that ransomware and other cyber threats not only pose a risk to patient information, but also to patient safety. These attacks gave a whole new and wholly unacceptable meaning to the term Denial of Service and healthcare organizations need to take measures to protect their information systems and medical device deployments against such attacks. This webinar will discuss taking network segmentation to the next level and implementing a zero trust approach to security in a multi-site medical center, whereby every device on the network is restricted to just essential communications.
