(W1) My Story of Recovery from Traumatic Injury

Heather Abbott

On April 15, 2013, what is referred to as Marathon Monday in Boston, Heather Abbott of Newport, RI set out on an annual tradition with six friends. They would attend the Red Sox game, followed by a walk over to the finish line to watch the runners. Abbott would never have dreamed this day would change her life forever.

Abbott was struck by shrapnel from the second of the two bombs, severely injuring her left foot. Strangers Matt Chatham, former New England Patriots lineman, and his wife, Erin, carried her to safety.

After three surgeries in four days, Abbott was faced with an agonizing decision – should she try and save her left foot or amputate her leg below the knee. With the help of other amputees, and the support from thousands around the country, Abbott made the difficult decision, at the age of 38, to live her life as an amputee.

Her recovery, as it is for many, was a journey through pain, anger, optimism, challenge and resilience. A significant part of her recovery was her support network – the friends, family and strangers who sent her well-wishes, the fellow amputees who helped her transition and the custom prostheses that allowed her to live her life as before.

Through insurance and donations, Abbott was given four different prosthetic legs. Just months after the bombing, she was living independently and resuming the activities she loves, including stand up paddle boarding, running and wearing high heels.

Abbott has remained a model of strength and resilience and is determined to help other victims of limb loss. She is a certified Peer Counselor for the American Amputee Coalition and is helping other amputees adjust to their “new normal,” as others helped her.

By starting the Heather Abbott Foundation, she has another chance to continue to pay it forward for all amputees. Heather Abbott has recently been awarded the following: the 2014 Orthopedic Association’s Spirit of an Active Lifestyle Award, an Honorary Doctorate in Humane Letters from Framingham State University in 2015, the Stonehill College President’s Excellence Award in 2015 and the 2015 Providence Business News Woman to Watch.

You Will Learn:

  • Overcoming adversity
  • How health care professionals impact recovery from a traumatic injury

(W3A) Putting the Integrity in Revenue Integrity – Evolving Views on Under- and Over-Payments

Once considered little more than the comparison of actual reimbursement to expected reimbursement, the terms under- and over-payment now carry implications for a broader definition of a health system’s true revenue integrity. Specifically, these terms speak to the notion of revenue integrity as a more comprehensive umbrella beyond traditional boundaries of simply revenue leakage. It is no longer sufficient to view these payment variances only as discrepancies between expected and actual payments, but also as variances between clinical activities performed and associated payments.

You Will Learn:

  • How to identify and address such payment variances as they relate to financial health and accurate representation of services rendered
  • Why these two views of payment variances are converging and what implications arise for healthcare delivery systems
  • Why more dynamic technology is required for true revenue integrity beyond traditional definitions

(W5B) Role of Value in Provider-Patient-Payer Relationships

Healthcare executives are under increasing pressure to assume risk from payers.

Medicare unveiled mandatory bundled payments for orthopedics in 2016 and will expand to cardiac episodes in 2017. Today, and even more in the future, providers play a key role and often have a direct impact on overall profitability of health systems and payers under these new models.
