How Custom Analytics Can Power and Grow Your Practice

Thursday, September 12 | 1 p.m. CDT | 60 minutes | 1.5 CEUs*

We often hear about how data is changing healthcare, but how many O&P practices have seen significant benefits from the use of data? The challenge is not about availability. First, you are likely using a practice management system that tracks a great deal of data about what is happening in your practice on a daytoday basis and makes that information available to you through reports or dashboards. Second, there is industry data available that would probably surprise you with its level of detail and specificity.

Did you know that you could have access to comprehensive data about what volume of O&P services are being referred by each referral source in your market, and who those referrals are going to? The data is out there. The real challenge is that leveraging data requires a different way of thinking about and running your business, and few practices have effectively made that transition. In this webinar, we’ll focus on a few key concepts that have helped leading O&P practices become “datapowered” by integrating custom analytics into their practice operations.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn key concepts that have helped other leading O&P facilities become "data powered" by integrating custom analytics into their practice operations

Creating Meaningful LLP Outcomes: Preliminary Findings of a 12-Month Pilot

Tuesday, September 17 | 1 p.m. CDT | 60 minutes | 1.5 CEUs*

The CMS Consensus Report has indicated there is a lack of patient response relative to their long-term functional and quality life status. Practitioners lack any additional information in their records to defend claims, which are denials or are later recouped after an audit based on a lack of medical necessity. Equipped with data to demonstrate the effectiveness of the care provided over time, the practitioner can defend the treatment decisions with actual facts based on patient inputs.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn why collecting patient data is relevant and necessary in today's health care scenario.
  • Learn how to implement this concept in their own practices, what the results mean, and what actionable steps to take to improve or maintain their scores.
