AssureCare’s President and CEO, Dr. Yousuf J. Ahmad, recognized for leading large health systems in developing ACO’s and advancing their population health management initiatives, will be explaining how crucial it is to have technology that can keep up with growing demands from providers, payers and state agencies at February’s upcoming World Congress. The World Congress 10th Annual Medicaid Managed Care (MMC) Summit is set to take place February 27-28, 2017 at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

Dr. Ahmad will discuss:

  • How to best utilize demographic information not covered by traditional EMRs to analyze and address social determinants of health that impact the delivery of care.
  • How a modular, highly configurable care coordination platform assists states in coordinating care for their members.
  • How to assess the way in which state Medicaid agencies can better assist with managed care plans and providers to assimilate data.
  • How to successfully coordinate care management using a database that integrates member and provider data.
  • How to use data to evaluate the enrollment process, authorizations, and to understand history and trends to best prepare for serving different populations.

“As we immerse ourselves in the evolving realm of managed care, the healthcare industry is starting to grasp the depth and breadth of what technology is capable of for value-based care and underserved populations,” shares Dr. Ahmad, “Technology allows us to continually stay aligned with new regulations in managed care. A focus on collecting and analyzing health data can provide us with a deeper understanding of social determinants of health. The collection and use of this data in healthcare allows us to better address, serve and positively impact a variety of populations…thus, improving countless lives.”
