Pre-Summit Session A: Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine - Expanding the Use of Telehealth for Improved Value-Based Health Care

This session will provide the participant with information about the applications of telehealth to rehabilitation and sports medicine practitioners and their patients/clients. Using cases that go across the lifespan (infants through older adults) and across settings (rural, military, school and home), participants will view and discuss current telehealth applications of rehabilitation and sports medicine, emerging models, inter-professional care, and policy barriers/ challenges to implementation. Specific use cases to be covered include hearing impairment, autism, concussion, sports injury and Parkinson’s Disease.

Pre-Summit Session B: Project ECHO: Leveraging Technology to Extend Knowledge to Providers

Necessity is the mother of invention! In 2003, Dr. Sanjeev Arora, a liver disease specialist, was determined to tackle a problem in New Mexico that was out of control. Thousands of New Mexicans with Hepatitis C were on months-long waiting lists to see him in one of only two clinics in the entire state. Because of the lack of specialty care for this target population, a program was created to impart specialized knowledge to primary care providers so those providers would have the knowledge to treat all but the most complex cases in their clinics. By putting local clinicians together with specialist teams at academic medical centers in regularly scheduled virtual clinics, Project ECHO, or Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes, shares knowledge and expands treatment capacity. The result: better care for more people.

In the practice of medicine, learning is often a matter of “See One, Do One, Teach One”. But, how do you do this when expertise is spread too thin? This session introduces you to the history of Project ECHO, how this unique use of telehealth has empowered providers to improve outcomes, and how it has evolved since its inception. Erika Harding, Chief Replication Officer will be joining us to share how Project ECHO has engaged over 150 partners in more than 23 countries covering over 70 complex conditions and problems. In 2016, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the Expanding Capacity for Health Outcomes (ECHO) Act, which is legislation that aimed to increase access to healthcare in rural areas by authorizing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to study and report on the Project ECHO model with the ultimate aim of integrating the model into health systems across the country. In this session, you will also hear from those who have served as successful Project ECHO hubs and super-hubs in a wide range of clinical areas including MAT, developmental disabilities, sickle cell, chronic lung disease, chronic pain, bone health and more) within and beyond the MATRC region to better understand their implementation journey.

SESSION A1: Navigating Telehealth and the Prescribing of Controlled Substances

Should clinicians be allowed to prescribe controlled substances via telehealth? Uncertainty around the rules and an environment where there are a variety of opinions makes this a difficult issue. This issue is particularly salient when trying to address access to care for mental health, substance use and pain management.

During this session, you will hear a variety of perspectives on this issue and get to engage in some lively discussion.

SESSION B1: Deconstructing Reimbursement for Chronic Care Management

An estimated 117 million adults have one or more chronic health conditions, and one in four adults have two or more chronic health condition. Since 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) began increasing payment and adding codes for chronic care management services. This trend continued with the release of the 2018 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule, opening the door for remote patient monitoring and better aligning its payment methodology with how care is provided by Rural Health Clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers.

During this session, you will gain a better understanding of what you can do to improve patient engagement and quality of care while getting paid through the CMS chronic care management program.

SESSION C1: Preparing for the Boomers: Telehealth Models for Meeting the Needs of Caregivers and Seniors

The United States is in the midst of one of the largest demographic shifts ever as an estimated 10,000 baby boomers a day are turning 65. By 2030, there will be about 72.1 million older persons; this is more than twice their number in 2000 and 1 in 5 people.

In a recent national survey on aging West Health conducted with NORC at the University of Chicago, it was found that close to 70 percent of Americans over the age of 30 think the country is “a little or not at all prepared” to address the healthcare and social support needs of its fast-growing senior population. Nearly 6 in 10 believe that the efforts that are currently underway are not going in the right direction. Majorities in the 3,000+ surveyed believe in-home services such as home visits by providers or ‘house calls’ (63 percent) and telemedicine (65 percent) would be helpful in improving care, however, access to these kinds of services is extremely limited. For example, Medicare enrollees were limited to 5.2 million home visits in 2012, representing only about 12 percent of the estimated total need for that population, while only one percent of Medicare beneficiaries used telemedicine in 2014.

This demographic shift is not a crisis but an opportunity – increasing the use of telehealth is an essential way to address how the healthcare system takes care of this population – which may already be our parents and grandparents, friends and, likely many of us. Hear about developing care delivery models for the aging with assisted living facilities and academic medical systems throughout the country. Some of these models incorporate paramedicine, remote patient monitoring, and real-time remote assessments.

SESSION A2: Telehealth as a Force Multiplier in Addressing the Opioid Crisis

Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids. The misuse of and addiction to opioids has become a national crisis, with no sign of it letting up any time soon. Putting even a small dent in the issue will require engagement by all levels of providers focusing on the entire continuum from preventing individuals from becoming dependent on opioids and supporting the recovery of those who already are.

This session will explore ways that telehealth is currently being used to address an issue that is challenging the limits of healthcare delivery systems, both urban and rural.

SESSION C2: Making Connected Care a Reality

"Right care, right place, right time", "population health", "value-driven" and "comprehensive" are buzz words that are hard to avoid if you work in a health system. Connected care is all about developing technology-facilitated, coordinated and integrated systems of care and part of the road map for making these buzz words a reality. Recent studies show the power that care coordination has in decreasing readmission and hospitalization rates while improving both the patient and provider experience. However, building this type of system is no walk in the park.

In this session, you will get a chance to hear about the real life challenges and successes of those who have started down the road to connected care.

A Look At The Changing Policy Environment In 2018 And Beyond

Telemedicine laws have come a long way over the last 12 months, due in no small part to the efforts of many in the MATRC community! This plenary session will cover the key legal and regulatory updates for all nine MATRC states in the past year, as well as changes on the federal level to anticipate in the year ahead. Attendees will review telehealth reimbursement laws, state regulations and licensing requirements, professional practice standards, and telemedicine prescribing of controlled substances. Special focus will be on emerging direct to consumer models, e-commerce, and ansynchronous telemedicine services.
