The Value of Health: Measuring the Economic Impacts of Prevention, Treatment, and Social Determinants

Monday, March 19, 2018
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET

Since 2001, the cost of the country’s opioid crisis is estimated to have exceeded $1 trillion, and is projected to cost an additional $500 billion by 2020. Cost estimates of this crisis helps us understand the full scope of the problem, identify who is most affected by it, and create evidence-based interventions to address the issue. These calculations are a critical starting point for action.

Please join Altarum’s Center for Value in Health Care for a webinar that will present actionable ways to use cost estimates to identify the most impactful ways to address some of our nation’s most pressing health challenges. Topics that we will cover include:

  • How reducing childhood lead exposure will result in billions of dollars in benefits for future cohorts of children; and
  • The need for community-level evaluation of the opioid burden and the value of alternative interventions to address opioid misuse.

We will introduce Altarum’s Value of Health tool, which measures the long-term economic and health impacts of initiatives to improve public health. We will also discuss future enhancements and applications of the tool, which powered the results of the childhood lead analysis as well as our recent national estimates of the magnitude of the opioid crisis.

Co-Presenters:

  • Len Nichols, PhD, Professor of Health Policy and Director of the Center for Health Policy Research and Ethics - George Mason University
  • Rebecca Morley, MSPP, Consultant - The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Moderator:

  • Corey Rhyan, MPP, Senior Analyst - Altarum | Center for Value in Health Care

Key Differentiators

Three features offered by no other health care analytical solution  

1

Separates typical costs from costs related to potentially avoidable complications (PACs). PACs are deficiencies in care that cause harm to patients, and account for a significant percentage of spending on chronic conditions, acute hospitalizations and procedures.

2

Assigns health care services and associated costs to specific episodes, splitting the costs among relevant episodes. This creates great transparency in how costs are assigned to episodes, eliminating the “black box” problem found in all other groupers.    

3

Associates episodes to one another in a clinically relevant way to help progressively build a comprehensive view of patient care management. This logic helps identify the potentially inappropriate use of procedures, while allowing the creation of severity-adjusted budgets for poly-morbid patients.

Analytics

History of PROMETHEUS Analytics

These analytics form the backbone of PROMETHEUS Payment, a bundled payment model developed by the Health Care incentives Improvement Institute, which joined forces with Altarum in 2017. The design team included experts in health care law, quality measurement, economics, benefits, operations, and related fields. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation provided grants to create, evaluate and pilot the model. The Commonwealth Fund, New York State Health Foundation, and Colorado Health Foundation also provided critical support. Today, PROMETHEUS Analytics are working to improve health care quality and value for health systems, Medicaid organizations, health plans and employers across the U.S.
