Executives from Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, will describe how the pediatric organization prepared for pay-for-performance payer contracts by implementing an enterprise data warehouse.

The organization used the warehouse to drive workflow changes that led to measurable quality results and a lower cost of care. Speakers will include Margaret Holm, director of quality and clinical systems integration and Charles G. Macias, M.D., associate professor of pediatrics and director, Center for Clinical Effectiveness and Evidence Based Outcomes Center at Texas Children's Hospital, which is affiliated with the Baylor College of Medicine.

They will describe the technology infrastructure required to analyze, track and measure clinical, financial and patient experience outcomes and describe how they built a multi-disciplinary team devoted to the adoption of evidence-based medicine. In addition, the speakers will offer tips on the way to assure collaboration between clinicians and the I.T. department.

The session takes place Monday, March 4, at 11 a.m. in room 245.
