June 14, 2016

The Long-Term and Post-Acute Care (LTPAC) Health IT Summit will be held June 26-28 at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA. Because the National PACE Association (NPA) is a collaborative partner of the summit again this year, NPA members can save $75 on registration using promo code LTPAC0616. The promo code is valid for online registration only through June 21. It cannot be used for onsite registration.

The LTPAC Health IT Summit, conducted by the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), brings together health IT leaders, key policy-makers, leading providers, federal and state grantees, and other professionals to advance policies and initiatives that align with the national health care strategy. Among the highlights of this year's summit are advancements in electronic health information exchange, patient engagement, and data analytics to support population health.

"The future of health IT – and of the health care system as a whole – is one where electronic health information is unlocked and set free," said Karen DeSalvo, MD, MPH, assistant secretary for health in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and national coordinator for Health IT. "This means it will be seamlessly and securely shared to achieve better, more person-centered care, smarter spending and healthier people. As we work toward this vision each day at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, long-term and post-acute care settings will continue to be positioned to deliver more effective and efficient patient care. I applaud the work of the LTPAC Health IT Collaborative and am proud to be a partner as we work to make this future vision a reality."

Two members of the NPA Data Team will give a joint presentation at the summit. Alan Gay, director of Data Technology and Measurement Services, and Ameeta Mistry, vice president of Data and Analytics, will present “PACE Common Data Set Development: A Pathway to Improved Capabilities in Benchmarking and Interoperability” on June 28.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will take part in a complimentary pre-summit session on June 26. CMS will offer information on the IMPACT Act and Assessment Data Element Standardization, Quality Measurement and Interoperability. Speakers will include CMS experts, a representative from the Office of the National Coordinator, and private sector experts knowledgeable about health IT, health information exchange and assessment data elements.

"In an environment pressing for continuous, insightful value-based care, LTPAC providers are well positioned to reinforce new care principles for the often high-risk patients they manage," stated Summerpal Kahlon, MD, director of Care Innovation at Oracle Health Sciences.
