President of Vital Incite, Mary Delaney, has been selected to present at the Johns Hopkins ACG System 2018 International Conference, “Bridging the Continuum of Care.” She will be one of just 30+ speakers from nine countries to present to this elite group of healthcare analysts, population health strategists and providers.

The John Hopkins ACG System 2018 International Conference will be held April 22-25, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. Attendees will discover the latest developments in risk adjustments, best strategies to use this information to improve population health and best practices to use predictive modeling to improve healthcare spend.

“It will be a privilege to collaborate with world leaders in the area of population health,” said Delaney. “The ACG system and our approach has allowed employers to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of disease burden and the health needs of their population.  This approach has allowed us to improve benefit plan design and use a focused approach to help vendors improve the value of their services.”

The Johns Hopkins ACG System offers a unique approach to measuring morbidity that improves accuracy and fairness in evaluating clinician performance, identifying patients at high-risk, forecasting health care utilization and setting equitable payment rates.
