In this session Bob will describe some key issues involved in evaluating a country’s healthcare system.  The results of a variety of organizations ranking of countries on their health systems will be reviewed.  In addition, a construct for describing and categorizing a country’s health system from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) will be used to look at selected health systems around the world.   The audience will be split into three groups before the session and each group assigned a country that reflects one of the three major types of healthcare systems under the OECD framework.   A short description of the assigned country will be provided to each person that has registered for the meeting.

WHEN: Tuesday, September 25th from 12 noon to 2 p.m.

“Systems Wanted: Programs Need Not Apply”

Benjamin F. Miller, Psy.D., Chief Strategy Officer, Well Being Trust
Former Associate Professor, Department of Family Medicine, University of Colorado School of Medicine, Founding Director, Eugene S. Farley, Jr., Health Policy Center

The problems that exist in health care are so pervasive that new programmatic solutions are not going to solve them. Simply put, programs matter, but we need more thoughtful connection of these programs into a true system of care that can take into account the various pieces of health that health care has fragmented. Consider the problem our nation is facing with addiction – specifically, the opioid crisis. If all we did was to create a new program to decrease the amount of opioids on the street (supply side) we have done little to address the underlying issues driving our disease of despair, which are predominately social in nature (demand side). To this end, the last thing we need are more disconnected programs in this country without first creating a true system where people do not fall through the cracks.

This presentation will highlight some of the problems, elevate solutions, and most importantly help underscore the importance of making thoughtful systemic decisions for how we begin to address health. Using examples from business, health care, and on the ground experience, a framework will be proposed to help evaluate how we approach complex solutions to complex problems.

  • Attendees will be able to describe some of the problems around fragmentation in health care, specifically the impact this has on mortality;
  • Attendees will leave able to explain some of the solutions to addressing mental health and substance use in the larger context of health and community; and,
  • Attendees will be able to list the elements associated with a National Resilience Strategy and specific actions we could take together

Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD on April 4, 2018

Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD on April 4, 2018

Our Evening with Glenn Steele, MD, PhD Talking about Value-Based Healthcare: What It Looks Like, What it is, How to Achieve it.

Dr. Steele shared with the group how Geisinger developed its “Warranty” or “Money Back Guarantee”, and it’s effectiveness through Proven Care, systematic implementation of surgical procedures from one provider to another. He also spoke about xG Health Solutions that Geisinger developed to help other health systems develop more effective healthcare strategies.

With Dr. Steele’s role as Vice Chair of Health Transformation Alliance (HTA), Glenn talked about the efforts the 46 of the country’s largest employers working together to take population health management innovations out to markets where Geisinger has not expanded its provider component.

Sponsors, Key Bank (Melissa Whitmer) and Eide Bailly (Bruce Kirkpatrick) join Dr. and Mrs Steele (and Chris) for a photo of the speaker during the reception hour prior to the meeting.

We thank both Melissa and Bruce and their employers for their support of the Denver Medical Study Group this year. They are greatly appreciated!

Glenn and Chris listening intently to one of our attendees who is asking question about the HTA program and its similiarity to the recently publcised announcement of JP Morgan, Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway announcement of their intent to form their own health insurance plan for their employees.

Glenn Steele, Jr., MD, PhD

On April 4th at Children’s Hospital Conference Center, we’re going to meet and hear from the physician who originated the “Warranty” concept in healthcare and took it to the “next level” as told in the article below from The New York Times on May 17, 2007. “The group, Geisinger Health System, had overhauled its approach to surgery. And taking a cue from the makers of television sets, washing machines and consumer products, Geisinger essentially guarantees its workmanship, charging a flat fee that includes 90 days of follow-up treatment.”

You might have seen this article by Reed Abelson from 2007.

The Geisinger phrase of a “money back guarantee” was coined by the current CEO at Geisinger, David Feinberg. Read more in Becker’s Hospital Review:

This is a “can’t miss” and “cutting edge” opportunity all in one to hear Glenn Steele, Jr., MD, PhD, Chairman, xG Health Solutions, Vice Chair, Health Transformation Alliance and Past President & CEO, Geisinger Health System, 2001-2015 to share with us what has happened since February 2006, when Geisinger began its experiment focusing on elective heart bypass surgery,

Dr. Steele will share how Geisinger, a vertically integrated healthcare organization serving a population of well over 3 million people in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maine, Delaware, and West Virginia, has developed and implemented value reengineering for populations of patients in both hospital and ambulatory care settings.  The reengineering of care between community practice and hospital-based specialty and sub-specialty will be detailed as well as the inception of the “warranty” and how it has recently evolved.  Dr. Steele will also share scaling and generalizing efforts through xG Health Solutions and the Health Transformation Alliance, taking the acute care and population health management innovations out to non-Geisinger, non-employed physicians and into markets where Geisinger has not expanded its provider component.

“Leadership in Medicine: The Key to Improving Our System”

We all know that healthcare is in deep trouble. And we know that time is running out. This discussion will focus on our current delivery “system” and the role of leadership in creating a new, more effective and efficient system. If providers want to retain their authority in healthcare delivery, they must collectively take responsibility and accountability for their quality and costs of care. Designing, developing strategies and tactics, and implementing a new system of healthcare is the role for leadership.

All attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Cortese’s book, Rescuing Healthcare: A Leadership Prescription to Make Healthcare What We All Want it to Be.
