Beacon Healthcare Systems’ Jessica Sieger to Be Featured Speaker at Healthcare’s Appeals and Grievances Summit
(HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – June 10, 2019) — Jessica Sieger, product specialist at Beacon Healthcare Systems, will be one of the featured speakers at the 4th Annual Optimizing Appeals and Grievances Summit—Improving ODAG & CDAG Outcomes—June 16-18 in Washington, D.C. The conference is sponsored by RISE, widely considered the leading source for information on risk adjustment and quality improvement within healthcare.
In her role at Beacon HCS, Sieger helps clients implement the company’s Virtual Appeals Manager (VAM), the industry’s most intuitive, easy-to-use appeals and grievances tool. She will leverage that experience in her presentation on “Analytical Culture Shift—Embracing Technology and Inclusion” where conference attendees will hear Sieger discuss how analytics can provide a holistic view of a health plan’s data to gain insight and support decision-making. Her presentation will examine how to develop an analytics strategy, how to integrate analytics at every step of a plan’s process, and how the proper use of analytics can impact everything from a plan’s performance and accreditation to audit results and stars ratings.
“We are living in a time of increased accountability and healthcare reform, neither of which can be achieved without analytics,” says Sieger. “This year’s RISE conference is focused on improving CMS ODAG and CDAG outcomes, which are the primary pain points of health plans today. I’m looking forward to explaining how Beacon’s view of including analytics in system configuration and expanding user access and understanding of analytics can improve those outcomes as well as both plan and employee processes.”
Beacon HCS’ Virtual Appeals Manager has been shown to improve star ratings, can be implemented in record time, and help reduce a massive amount of health plan letters into a manageable and efficient core of templates. As Beacon HCS’ product specialist for VAM, Sieger meets with clients during implementation to configure their system and workflows based on compliance industry best practices and individual client needs. She also assists with client tickets regarding system configuration, troubleshooting and reporting.
