Removing Care Delivery Blind Spots Across the Continuum with Value-Based Care
Healthcare becomes increasingly complex every day. Care networks are seeing more patients while healthcare is undergoing greater specialization and producing more documentation. These dynamics, along with disconnected data, oftentimes lead to a fragmented view of care and result in higher readmission rates, longer lengths of stay, and greater risk of continued revenue leakage. This contributes to an estimated loss of $18 billion annually.
Meanwhile, the industry is shifting to a value-based care model. To succeed under this model, clinicians must have immediate, point-of-care access to in-depth, real-time insights at any stage of a patient’s journey. The right platform will enhance care transitions between visits, patient management within visits and network optimization across visits.
Without this holistic and integrated view of the business, healthcare facilities will suffer from blind spots in care and simply will not be able to achieve the quality of care desired. This is especially important for high-risk patient populations, who are often the least visible across the continuum and also represent the greatest impact on healthcare costs.
A growing demand for actionable intelligence
True care coordination across the continuum requires data, insights, and a seamless workflow. However, with the average health system using at least 18 unique electronic health records (EHRs) across different partners and providers, data integration can be a challenge.
Using a single platform that spans care settings empowers organizations to leverage timely data and insight into their care partners’ performance to ensure that the right patients are being transferred to the right care partner at the right time. Armed with a fully integrated set of real-time data and care coordination tools, businesses can achieve:
- More effective workflows: Drive workflows by automatically transferring clinical data including medication and orders to save hours on medication reconciliation, diagnosis reconciliation, and other paper-based or PDF-based processes.
- A level playing field around performance: Eliminate time spent manually compiling spreadsheets and updating performance data, such as readmission rates and lengths of stay.
- Enable programs with hospitals through real-time data: Set up real-time data running between hospitals and post-acute care systems to support programs for quality care improvement.
Spotlight on quality-of-care metrics
The industry-wide transition to value-based care has shifted focus to quality-of-care metrics including the patient experience, clinical process of care measures, efficiency outcomes, and how well gaps are closed during patient transitions. To meet these standards, it’s critical that caregivers are empowered to make informed decisions based on accurate, reliable, and up-to-date data.
Access to data-driven intelligence is a must for facilities across the healthcare continuum in today’s value-based care environment. To learn more about integrated care coordination and how to succeed under a value-based care model
