On March 1, over 800,000 MassHealth members will be moved to new “accountable care organization” insurance plans. It’s a huge transition for patients and an enormous disruption to the workflows of healthcare providers. Join us Thursday, March 8, 5-8pm at Tap Into TechSpring to hear how innovative thinking and technology is being used to meet the real challenges of this new system.
Cristina Huebner Torres, Vice President of Research, Population Health & Public Health Programs at Caring Health Center and Chris Jasinski, Director of Healthcare Informatics at Health New England will explain what an ACO is, who is feeling the impact, and what technology is being used to capture and manage information.
Come learn about the importance of Social Determinants of Health and see a demo of the iPad tool developed to capture that information, where the info is being stored, and how analytics will improve the health of our community.
Or just come for the food, beer and great company!
