Population health is no longer optional. It’s a must in order to improve patient care, differentiate and win in the new healthcare market. Taking a holistic approach that considers the entire organization – an enterprise population health approach is critical. When there are synergies and efficiencies between people, processes and technology, that’s when true care transformation can be achieved.
Access management solutions such as single sign-on (SSO) are often looked upon as the first line of defense in controlling identity and access risk. While that’s true, healthcare organizations need more than just SSO.
Caradigm recently conducted a survey of healthcare organizations in order to better understand how providers are approaching bundled episodes of care. Although some providers have been piloting bundled episodes for several years, most are still in the early stages of refining their strategies and increasing their participation in The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) program.
for healthcare organizations whose reimbursement and revenue are tied to patient outcomes, achieving performance on quality measures for the Centers for medicare and medicaid Services (CmS) and other stakeholders drives high-priority quality improvement projects. organizations face challenges, however, in the execution of quality initiatives due to disparate data systems, inefficient clinician workflows, and time-consuming measurement processes. adding to these challenges are the quality demands of risk-based contracts that have grown with the advent of population health management.
Healthcare organizations increasingly face the demands of value-based reimbursement as hospitals and physicians are held accountable for higher quality care delivered at a lower cost. As organizations plan and prepare for value-based care, they also must remain focused on margins threatened by increased cost structure and declines in reimbursement in the current fee-for-service environment.
Privacy breaches have been escalating in the healthcare industry at an alarming rate. last year alone, more than seven million patient health records were breached. industry experts estimate the annual cost of those breaches to be over $5.6 billion.
