NEW YORK, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As healthcare institutions and patients are adjusting to the many changes emerging from the Affordable Care Act, many questions continue to arise, including how providers and payers can set themselves up for success given the changing reimbursement and expenditures seen in today's evolving marketplace.
Healthcare Innovation: Trends From The Trenches, the popular webinar series that launched last fall, will address this issue in its fifth webinar entitled, The Changing Healthcare Marketplace and How Providers and Payers Are Collaborating to Adapt, airing on Friday, March 14, at Noon, Eastern Time.
This webinar series was developed by Andrea Simon, Ph.D., anthropologist, CEO/Founder of Simon Associates Management Consultants, and a former hospital executive. She will co-host the fifth webinar with Margaret Davino, Partner, Kaufman, Borgeest & Ryan. Davino has been involved with physician-hospital contracts, affiliation and/or service contracts, employment agreements, managed care issues, bylaws and governance matters, regulatory compliance, medical staff affairs, establishing physician practices, as well as mergers and the formation of hospital systems. The biggest part of her practice at the current time is relationships and collaborations between various providers, including physicians, super-groups, hospitals and others.
"We are delighted to have Margaret Davino as our co-host for this webinar, as she has been recognized every year since 2007 as one of the best healthcare attorneys in New York City," said Simon. "Margaret sees all sides of the latest healthcare issues, as she represents physicians contemplating the sale of their practices to hospitals and hospitals seeking advice on purchasing physicians' practices."
Davino will give webinar listeners an insider's look at the relationships between hospitals, physicians and other providers, describing how these relationships are changing as part of the new Affordable Care Act landscape. She also will discuss structures that are being used for providers and payers to work together, including accountable care organizations (ACOs), and the effect that the changing relationships are having on prices and on relationships with payers/insurance companies.
"Right now there are several different models of collaboration between hospitals and physicians that are important to understand for everyone in the healthcare field," said Davino. "I will also address how these models affect reimbursement, how patients are impacted and what everyone from hospital administrators to physicians to patients can expect in the future."
Healthcare professionals who want to attend the fifth webinar are encouraged to register here at their earliest convenience and include a question for Simon and Davino ahead of the March 14th session.
Additional upcoming webinars will include: The Future of Healthcare Marketing is Digital on Apr. 25 with co-host Ben Dillon, Co-Owner and VP of Geonetric Inc.; Men's Health: An Emerging Market for Healthcare Providers And A Response To A Growing Crisis on May 9 with featured speaker, Charles Modlin, MD, MBA, FACS, and Healthcare Delivery and Experience Innovation: A Core Competency for Integrated Delivery Systems on June 6 with co-host Sam Basta, MD, MMM, FACP, CPE. Each webinar will start at noon, Eastern Time. For more information, please go to: www.simonassociates.net.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
