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.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
