BTOES18 Speaker - Derek Mydlarz - Removing the barriers to better health through a high tech, high touch approach

Removing the barriers to better health through a high tech, high touch approach

Our current health care system is fragmented and inefficient, and therefore expensive and relatively ineffectual in terms of achieving desirable health outcomes. But value-unlocking changes have begun to take hold in the form of novel roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all parties in the healthcare ecosystem. The people you connect with and information you consume in the care of patients today probably won’t be the same tomorrow.

 

Foundationally, health care is built on trusting relationships, but that doesn’t just mean between a physician and a patient. All the stakeholders, including the payors and even family caregivers, must be better connected, depending on one another and leveraging a high-tech, high-touch approach to deliver integrated, well-informed holistic patient care. This new paradigm promises to significantly improve health outcomes and lower costs - deliver more value and ensure long-term sustainability of our health care system – by emphasizing prevention, reducing unnecessary services, improving care at home, treating patients with unmanaged behavioral health conditions, and more.

Today, Humana is working to fuse data and analytics with clinical and community relationships by working inside and outside the clinical setting. This is helping the healthcare ecosystem – including primary care physicians, specialists, other clinicians, hospitals, payors, the patients and entire communities – maximize their efficiency, identify opportunities, act on insights, address social determinants of health, and make key health decisions in an effective manner. When patients get the right care and preventive services at the right time and place, and social and lifestyle aspects of their health are understood, considered and addressed - everyone wins.

This high-tech, high-touch approach is helping to increase access to care, improve health outcomes for patients, and reduce medical expense.

During this session, participants will:

  • Learn how payors and other health care stakeholders have begun to connect differently through a high-tech, high-touch approach.
  • Understand how value-based care arrangements are driving the changing roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all parties in the healthcare ecosystem.
  • Learn how physicians are increasingly relying on data and analytics for their clinical decision making. 
  • Understand, through the use of case studies, how Humana is harnessing its vast data repository and analytics capabilities to support physicians and other clinicians as they care for patients both inside and outside the clinical setting.
  • Understand how Humana is helping to convene community resources to address social determinants of health.

The Rationale Behind BTOES18

Speed, and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions are a significant challenge for business.

New technologies and innovation acceleration are disrupting all traditional industries and markets. Start-ups no longer have major barriers to entry, computing powering is accelerating, and business models are being disrupted in just a few months, causing massive pressures on margins.

The threat of new competition (the #1 driver), rising customer expectations, expanding markets, and digitalization are the key drivers of change, and the driving force behind the every increasing need for Operational Excellence, especially for end-to-end Business Transformation, and rapid flexible solution offerings and execution.

Every change in the market affects how a company operates and performs, often dramatically. And these days, it is difficult to respond to one disruption before being thrown off course by the next one. Advanced technologies, increasing digitization such as AI, Robotic Process Automation, Machine Learning, IOT, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Data Analytics, Advanced Robotics, 3D Printing, Mobile Applications are just some of the technology shifts.

These digitalizations’ bring a quantum leap in productively improvement, but consequently leaders have to rethink their operations end to end, including how to incorporate digitalization activities along the whole value chain, e.g. use of big data in customer operations, or 3D printing technology in manufacturing.

Teams will need to embrace a culture of operational excellence, reimagined operations every day, foster open communication and faster decision-making. Product development, procurement, supply chain management, production system design, and all manufacturing and services will need to be transformed. Operational Excellence professionals needs to adapt and actively embrace all these new technologies and the new business models they create to ensure the organization is always at the cutting edge of execution excellence.

Whether its the need to keep up with new technologies, the pressures of implementing and sustaining a fully-fledged culture of Operational Excellence, or encouraging the allocation of resources and buy-in for Operational Excellence projects, it is clear that Operational Excellence practitioners are facing a period of incredible change and upheaval.

Exceptionally savvy companies manage these changes by developing end-to-end global operating strategies that enable profitable growth that take charge of innovation execution and stay nimble enough to respond to rapidly changing condition. Strategies that embrace and thrive on the power of technology to drive innovation.

Operational excellence is a key attribute of leading companies in any industry. Through the combination of the right business strategy, the right technology strategy, the right operating model, and the right execution path, companies ride out recessions more successfully and emerge from them more quickly, developing competitive advantage regardless of economic conditions.

BTOES18 will help continuous improvement professionals, map out, plan and execute the operational excellence strategies to ensure their businesses effectively adapt to all the business transformation and disruptive challenges taking placing.

The event seeks to understand the most crucial issues, priorities and successes faced by Operational Excellence Practitioners and all the latest developments.

What is Operational Excellence

Operational Excellence is the execution of the business strategy more consistently and reliably than the competition, with lower operational risk, lower operating costs, and increased revenues relative to its competitor. It is needed more than ever is today’s technology driven rapidly changing business models, which require organizations to undergo end-to-end business transformation. Operational Excellence can also be viewed as execution excellence.

Some of the key process methodologies used are Lean Thinking, Six Sigma, Hoshin Planning, Balanced Scorecard etc.

However, the focus of Operational Excellence goes beyond the traditional continuous improvement methods to a long-term change in organizational culture. Companies in pursuit of Operational Excellence do two things significantly differently than other companies: they manage their business and operational processes systematically and invest in developing the right culture.

Operational Excellence manifests itself through integrated performance across revenue, cost, and risk. It focuses on meeting customer expectation through the continuous improvement of the operational processes and the culture of the organization. The goal is to develop one single, integrated enterprise level management system with ideal flow. The second component, a culture of Operational Discipline, is commonly described as doing the right thing, the right way, every time. This culture is built upon guiding principles of integrity, questioning attitude, always problem-solving, daily continuous improvement mind-set, level of knowledge, teamwork, and process driven.
