Dynamic Community Care Teams and the Role of Technology
Payment reform is shifting the focus of US healthcare delivery to ensuring good outcomes at a low cost, instead of simply providing services. Today, most medical care happens in face-to-face encounters, often at acute hospitals with clinicians serving “at the top of their licenses”. The changing reimbursement incentives increasingly motivate the delivery of care within the community, by lower-cost, extended care teams, such as regional medical centers, primary care doctors, and/or homecare providers.
This shift has substantial implications for healthcare information technology. New IT tools and systems are needed for population management to spot who needs care, to develop the appropriate care plans, facilitate follow-up and patient compliance in the community and ensure ongoing communication/coordination between the primary care providers and the extended care team.
Join us to learn more about:
- Defining and connecting the extended care team
- How we can help patients get better and experience more coordinated care
- Workflow, data capture, data ownership
- Reimbursement – divvying up the pie and following the money
- Getting to ROI
- The gaps that remain and the opportunities for the innovator
