Using Clinical Informatics to Optimize Value-Based Care in the Community
Friday, November 15, 1:30 PM EST
As health care spending continues its unsustainable rise, there is growing pressure to incentivize increased quality and decreased costs. Value-based care models, which focus on the quality of care instead of the quantity of services, could address both of these issues. Shifting to a value-based approach, however, requires changes across the health care ecosystem—in financing and population health management as well as for payers and providers.
In this webinar, Joe Kimura, MD will discuss how a high-performing community-based nonprofit health system has systematically applied analytics to drive Population Health management and support value-based care.
