Pulse8 to Address the Importance of EMR Integration in a Highly Dispersed Market during RISE West

Pulse8’s Courtney Yeakel, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, alongside John Barkley, Director of Medicare and Commercial Risk Adjustment at ConnectiCare, will discuss the tremendous value and potential challenges of EMR integration at the RISE West Conference taking place September 12-14th in Palm Springs, CA.

In its 8th year, the annual RISE West summit continues to feature expert speakers in the area of Medicare Advantage, ACA Commercial, and Managed Medicaid.  The agenda is comprised of sessions covering Risk Adjustment, Quality Improvement, Health Management, Clinical Quality, and Coding and Compliance.  This event presents the opportunity to further education in these areas, or network with industry leaders in risk, quality, analytics, compliance, and more.

Pulse8’s Senior Vice President of Product Strategy, Courtney Yeakel, and ConnectiCare’s John Barkley, Director of Medicare and Commercial Risk Adjustment, will host “EMR Integration: You Need a Spider to Weave the Web of Connectivity among Disparate EMR Systems” on Day Two of RISE West, September 13th, at 1:05pm.  During this brand new session, attendees will learn the following:

  • The importance of EMR integration – both the value of the push of Risk Adjustment and Quality gaps straight to a Provider’s EMR, and the value of the pull of Provider data and feedback into the analytics
  • A lay of the land in the highly dispersed market of EMR software vendors
  • How to adapt to the nuances of various markets when there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach available
  • The importance of employing a third-party to coordinate various approaches, depending on your local configurations, and to leverage different operability partners

“The adoption of EMR integration would trigger true progression toward optimal performance, and Pulse8 currently works with leading EMR vendors to help payers and providers share data more efficiently,” stated Courtney Yeakel, Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Pulse8. “A solid EMR integration solution will enable providers to address quality measures and chronic disease gaps more completely and communicate with payers more efficiently.”  Pulse8, alongside health plan partner ConnectiCare, will leverage its industry knowledge and first-hand experience to educate attendees on the immense value of EMR integration – for payers and providers alike – and how to mitigate the challenges that typically arise when implementing the technology.
