ABCs of VBC: Panel Discussion with Front-line Leaders on the Role of Quality Measurement and Population Health Post COVID-19 – As states begin to explore “reopening” in various ways, and providers and payers struggle with not only how to directly care for those impacted, but also how to ensure that their other patients or members receive needed care, the role of quality and population health will continue to evolve.
Many experts suggest that the COVID-19 pandemic illustrated the fragility of a volume-based delivery system and contend that a value-based system predicated on quality will evolve more quickly as a result. Others point out that a population health infrastructure and approach is the only way to properly align care for those who need it, when they need it, amidst a delivery system with limited capacity. SPH Analytics is proud to host front-line leaders in an interactive panel discussion about their views on the role of quality measurement and population health in a post-COVID world.
HIMSS Complimentary Digital Learning
Cloud Transformations: A Provider’s Guide – Most providers have completed the initial steps of their cloud journey. Their cloud experience is transitioning from cloud adoption into a complete transformation of their technology and related processes.

As a result, timelines are accelerating and many providers expect to be completely cloud-first in the next 12-24 months. Join this webinar and learn the latest findings from the third annual HIMSS survey of cloud usage among providers.

The COVID-19 pandemic is influencing consumer health behavior. Are the changes here to stay? – The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the economy, the way we work and the health system. A comparison by PwC’s Health Research Institute (HRI) of American consumer sentiment before and during the pandemic reveals that people are accessing health information in new ways. Their trust has shifted as well. In this webcast a panel of health experts will examine insights from PwC’s recent consumer survey findings: The COVID-19 pandemic is influencing consumer health behavior. Are the changes here to stay? HRI, which surveyed 2,533 Americans between April 2 and 8, found that the delivery of care may look very different after the pandemic. HRI’s results signal that US businesses could play an even bigger role in protecting the health of their workers, that the health system likely will make more room for telehealth and other forms of virtual care, and that the American consumer may take a more active role in managing health and participating in a system that is being remade.
