POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - April 3 - 4, 2017
After finishing a Family Medicine residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), Dr. Scornavacca opened a solo private family practice in Leominster, Mass. where he provided the full spectrum of family care including Obstetrics, Hospital Inpatient, Nursing Home, Pediatric Nursery and Ambulatory for 12 years. During this time he became chairman of the board of an independent provider IPA in northern Massachusetts, a group that was very successful in full risk contract models, as well as hospital medical director of the utilization review/care management program.
Currently, Dr. Scornavacca is the lead physician for Harvard Primary Care, part of the UMass Memorial Health Care (UMMHC) Community Medical Group. In his role as practice lead physician and as a faculty member of UMMS, he serves as a longitudinal preceptor for first and second year medical students and provides clerkship mentoring to third year students and residents who rotate through his practice.
UMass Memorial Health Care is the clinical partner of UMass Medical School and the largest health system in Central Massachusetts with 1,125 beds, 1,600 physicians, 3,000 registered nurses, and 12,000 total employees. At UMass Memorial, the Office of Clinical Integration has evolved into the tip of the spear for system’s population health efforts.
In this session, two organizational leaders will show how pop health success depends on physician engagement and leadership development, an organizational framework that puts the patient at the center as the consumer, and a technology infrastructure that allows an organization to be nimble, strategic and forward thinking in the ever-changing reimbursement environment.
This session will provide an overview of a mature and scalable pop health program in action.
