Fee-for-service reimbursement structures are slowly giving way to a new model. Taking the place of this framework is value-based care, in which reimbursement is directly tied to clinical outcomes. This shift is one of the biggest trends taking place in healthcare, yet there remain certain barriers to adoption — workflow challenges and interoperability among them, which can leave providers scrambling.
Michael Cousins, Chief Analytics Officer for Lumeris, discusses how a strategic approach for using technology is essential for value-based care. New techniques and advanced analytical methods, including approaches that have been used in other industries, can help drive improved patient outcomes and optimize healthcare resources.
