Learning Collaborative 2020

The PSH Learning Collaborative 2020 brings together subject matter experts and leading organizations from across the country to learn from each other how to achieve the quadruple aim; gratify providers, improve population health, reduce care costs and satisfy patients.  The collaborative assists facilities in PSH pilot implementation, optimization and expansion into new service lines or system-wide conversion. It helps institutions simultaneously address cost and improve patient care.

Participants are provided PSH implementation toolkits, pathways, protocols, and templates that have been successfully implemented by other PSH participants, along with educational sessions and strategies on how to monetize the PSH model. Participants also gain access to dedicated staff to assist their institution in creating focused SMART & stretch goals, and coaching to achieve their goals.

The PSH Learning Collaborative has helped institutions save up to $10,000 per patient and have shown a return on investment (ROI) by reducing length of stay (LOS), improving quality metrics and patient satisfaction, reducing hospital acquired conditions (HACs) and episode of care costs, and improving MIPS performance, all while fostering deeper collaboration between specialists and hospitals.

Plus, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) has joined the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) Multi-Specialty Portfolio Program™ (Portfolio Program). Under the Portfolio Program, physicians who are Board Certified by one of the 20 ABMS Member Boards participating in the Portfolio Program, can now earn Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Improvement in Medical Practice (Part IV) credit for participating in the PSH Learning Collaborative 2020.

  • PSH pilot implementation
  • Perioperative care redesign in the PSH
  • Results of self-assessment tools, including:
    • MACRA, MIPS and APMs impact
    • Cost of implementing a PSH pilot
    • Financial and non-financial outcomes of implementing a PSH pilot
    • Readiness assessment

    • Track data
    • Demonstrate value
    • Establish trust
    • Establish meaningful goals
    • PSH health care landscape

Advanced Cohort

Created for organizations that are looking to optimize or expand their PSH pilot.  While receiving all the benefits of the Core Collaborative, the Advanced Cohort will also gain exclusive information about: 

  • Optimization of a PSH pilot
  • System wide conversion
  • Taking advantage of voluntary bundles
  • Expansion of a PSH pilot to new service lines
  • Advanced leadership training
    • Change management
    • Communication beyond your peers and department
    • The difference between collaboration and cooperation
    • Calculating the impact of bundles

In addition to these participation categories, the PSH Learning Collaborative recognizes the need to support its Advanced Cohort members as they participate in various public and private bundle programs.  As such, a new add-on option is being offered.

NEW! Bundles Payment Add-On
The Bundles Payment option is exclusively available to Advanced Cohort participants. The Bundles Payment Add-on option supports institutions in identifying areas to effectively improve quality, share in savings, redesign care delivery and reduce costs.
