Minnesota Health Care Roundtable

The Minnesota Health Care Roundtable is a semi-annual conference that examines topics affecting the evolution of health care policy. Hosted by Minnesota Physician Publishing, we assemble a panel of between six and eight different stakeholder group perspectives and present a moderated discussion in front of a live audience. Through a three-phase curriculum development process, panelists are involved with co-creating the conference themes. The events generate an nine-page report, published in Minnesota Physician and posted online.

Thursday, November 14, 2019, 1–4 p.m.

The Gallery, Hilton Minneapolis

Objectives:

We will examine the diversity of care teams and how they interact. We will explore benefits that could result from improved coordination of these care teams. We will identify the barriers to this improved communication, such as incompatible EHRs and data privacy issues, and ways around them. We will provide examples of successful integration of clinical and non-clinical care teams and a road map for adopting and scaling these models for all elements of our health care delivery system.

Background and focus:

As health care costs constantly rise, containment strategies involve care teams. Many individuals are now part of every physician-patient encounter. Some are hands-on with the patient, some the patient never sees. New entities become part of care teams offering services from chronic care management, to behavioral health screening, to care coordination, to coding, charting and much more. With goals of lowering costs, increasing reimbursement, and improving outcomes, clinics can customize teams to individual patient needs. Keeping up with this rapidly evolving landscape can exceed the capacity of many medical groups.
