Deerwalk Carrom Tournament 2014 kicked off on March 23. This year, we had a total of 32 participants and each team comprised of two members. The teams were divided into four groups and league matches were held in each group. The runners-up and winners of each group qualified for the quarter finals.
When I joined Deerwalk three and a half years ago, I had thought that this company was the right platform for me to share my ideas, knowledge and expertise. But, as my desk started getting old and my chair started wearing down, I was proven wrong. Deerwalk was not only the platform to showcase my capabilities but also a platform where I could learn and experience something new every day. And, in March 2014, the experience I got was something big and extraordinary: the chance to travel to the USA, the land of opportunities, the land of dreams.
The year 2014 could not have started off any better for me than with a visit to the US from Deerwalk. This was my first visit to the US and I was excited about it. Since Sanjeev was already here in Nepal at the time, I knew Ashay was coming to pick me up at the airport. But to my surprise Smriti, Prashant and Rupendra were there too. Trust me, I could not have chosen any better weather to go to Boston. It was winter and as soon as I stepped out from the airport, I got my first taste of Winter in Boston. It was freezing cold and there was a snow storm just a couple of days before I landed.
Deertalk Season 1 (Jan 22 -Feb 12, 2014) had Manila Raut, Shukra Shrestha, Prabim Manandhar, Minesh Maharjan, Shakun Shrestha, Resha Sedhai, Shrijana Tandukar and Nikita Shrestha as its participants.
Population health management is needed today if employers, health plans or ACOs want to manage rising healthcare costs by keeping members healthy. Healthcare managers need to pay different levels and types of attention to different groups of people inside the populations they manage. Once people are put into different groups based on the kind of care they need (wellness management, chronic disease management, acute care, etc.), the members in each group need to be managed in such a way that they can be moved in and out of the cohort at any time. Healthcare-solution providers have struggled for years to develop such dynamic cohort-ing features. Many have promised but none have delivered a truly dynamic cohort-ing tool.
For the last couple of years our team have been working very hard to prepare a complete solution set for Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). We now have the pieces together to provide end-to-end solutions to ACOs. As we all know, ACOs need to digest information from discrete sources like EMRs, Lab, Hospital systems, Claims systems, PBMs and so on. They have to meet quality as well as financial targets to remain competitive. They can’t do so if they do not have the operation tools to measure those targets. Deerwalk’s Big Data platform analyzes data from discrete sources and provides ACOs the opportunity to track healthcare utilization and quality metrics from multiple angles and levels. Our care management platform, Everest, allows ACOs to manage patient care by constantly monitoring quality metrics and care gaps at the member and group levels. In addition, members can be kept alert by giving them access to Deerwalk’s member portal through which they can check care gaps and take part in Health Risk Assessment Surveys.
Mentors Club (MC) was formed in the month of December 2012 with the goal of mentoring new hires and assisting the HR department in the selection of the best interns and trainees.
In 2013, Deerwalk offered internship to 48 students from 20 different colleges. In addition, 18 trainees were taken. MC coordinated tests and interviews for them. Mentors club also initiated and coordinated the company wide HIPAA Assessment Test the responsibility of which has since been handed over to the QA unit.
Professional Communication Club (PCC) was formed in the month of September, 2012, with the aim of enhancing written and verbal communication skills of Deerwalk employees.
Initially, PCC provided weekly guidelines on improving the general level of English usage in the company. Later, Deertalk was started as a platform to enhance public communication skills. In each batch of Deertalk, participants were involved in five different sessions: Training, Topic based Speech, Debate, Extempore and Presentation. PCC members and other judges provided tips on body language, grammar, vocabulary, content, and context to the participants.
Corporate Activity Club (CAC) was formed in the month of December 2012. The main goal of the club is to coordinate recreational activities for Deerwalk staff and build stronger camaraderie among the employees. CAC is proud to have conducted a number of successful events in the year 2013.
