Josh Rosenthal, Chief Scientific Officer, RowdMap, Inc., will be participating on the panel “What Can You Do with the Data You Have” at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s National Affordability Summit on September 27th in Washington D.C. Joined by Niall Brennan, President and Executive Officer of the Health Care Cost Institute, Craig Brammer, Chief Executive Officer of The Health Collaborative, and Alan Gilbert, Director of Global Government and NGO Strategy of GE healthymagination, Josh will discuss how to achieve affordable care by reducing low-value care.
“Americans waste thousands of dollars a year on unnecessary tests and procedures that could be better spent on education, meals, and shelter,” said Josh Rosenthal, Chief Scientific Officer, RowdMap Inc. “By using public Medicare FFS data, we can identify low-value practice patterns and reduce the delivery of these unnecessary services to make healthcare affordable for the population.”
The National Affordability Summit will bring together payers, providers, employers, and researchers to gain a deeper understanding of what’s driving healthcare costs, various levers to create necessary change, and how to take action to achieve affordable care. Borrowing the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s simple mantra describing essential elements of change: Will, Ideas, and Execution, attendees will hear from national thought leaders on creating the will to improve, alternatives to the status quo, and how to execute effective solutions.
