International MUSE Conference

2019 International MUSE Inspire Conference

The International MUSE Conference is right around the corner.  We can't wait to see you there to talk about: Reporting, Quality (including eCQMs) Reporting, Expanse report migration and other DR related services.  The MUSE Conference is the best event of the year for MEDITECH users to learn and network.  There will be many opportunities to see MEDITECH Expanse in action, learn best practices, and talk with users who have upgraded.

2019 Tuesday Workshops:

Morning Workshops:

701 - Data Repository Boot Camp Basics

Welcome to DR boot camp! We’ve got two sessions designed to teach you the ins and outs of reporting from MEDITECH Data Repository: DR Boot Camp Basics, and Advanced DR Boot Camp. In DR Boot Camp Basics, we’ll start with an overview of what DR is and how it fits into the MEDITECH systems picture. Then we’ll demonstrate different ways to find the specific data you need from DR, so you can write your reports more quickly and efficiently, instead of constantly browsing table data. We’ll dive into some basic T-SQL concepts that every report writer needs to know, including primary keys, indexing in SQL Server, writing more efficient table joins, reviewing execution plans and how to use both T-SQL and user-defined functions to improve your coding technique.

702 - The Alphabet Soup of Clinical Quality Measure Reporting and Reimbursement 

CMS is transitioning to what they call "a new and more responsive regulatory framework" for quality reporting and reimbursement. We have already started experiencing the transformation of fee for service into value-based care models driven by the Value-Based Purchasing (VBP), Quality Payment Program (QPP), MACRA, Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APM). 

Afternoon Workshop:

801 - Advanced Data Repository Boot Camp

In Advanced DR Boot Camp, we’ll dive more deeply into T-SQL stored procedure coding techniques, including using CASE statements to define your own if/then logic, properly handing NULLs in DR, and different methods for working with data subsets, like temp tables and CTE.  We’ll also cover handling data in complex scenarios such as combining multi-valued results into a single column, pivoting your output, accurately performing date calculations and much more.

Our Education Sessions for 2019:

1107 - CART – It’s Not Just for Shopping Anymore!

Track:  Regulatory
Presenters:  Greg D’Abate, Alexis Donnaruma, and Vivian Bade
Organization:  Acmeware, Inc.
Scheduled:  Wednesday May 29 at 1:30 pm

In the past, organizations participating in chart abstraction had staff sifting through unstructured data in paper charts and converting it to discrete reportable data. This is time-consuming and requires extensive resources from both the IT and Quality departments. What if you could send data electronically to QualityNet’s CMS Abstraction and Reporting Tool (CART)?  In this session, we’ll demonstrate how you can use MEDITECH Data Repository to capture electronically abstracted quality measure data and import it directly to CART, spending less time manually curating paper charts, and more time focusing on improving patient outcomes and hospital processes.

1023 - The Wheel Keeps on Turning: Quality Cycle Management Concepts for Continuously Reliable Results

Track: Regulatory
Presenters: Courtney Hodet and Alexis Donnaruma
Organization: Northwestern Medical Center, St. Albans, Vermont; Acmeware
Scheduled: Thursday May 30 at 1:45 pm

Successful Electronic Quality Reporting can be daunting in its complexity yet cyclical in nature. If a systematic approach is applied each component, then re-addressed as changes are made in any portion of the program, a clear pathway to success can be achieved. This pathway requires three critical steps that will evolve into a predictive reproducible pattern for Quality Cycle Management.  Attend this session to learn more.

1098 - Fun Times at the DR BAR

Track: Reporting / Analytics / Business Intelligence
Presenters: Stacy Smallenberger and Vivian Bader
Organization: Acmeware
Scheduled: Friday May 31 at 10:00 am

There are so many options to choose from when you go to a BAR. Which is the right one? The BAR application in MEDITECH Expanse is all new, as is the corresponding Data Repository table schema. What are the right choices for reporting summary and detailed patient accounting information? What’s changed from previous versions of BAR? If you’re a report writer or financial analyst, come join this education session, where we’ll help you navigate all that’s new in BAR in Data Repository.
