From program to business model: using population health management to drive value-based care

In a recent blog post, Medecision discussed population health management.

What does “population health management” really mean?

Many healthcare organizations think of population health management in terms of condition-specific programs designed to improve care and reduce costs for at-risk patients. Medicare’s bundled payment initiatives for joint replacements and cardiac care may come to mind, for instance.

Very often organizations launch programs like these in response to some sort of reimbursement mandate. Yet think of how powerful they could be if they were instead driven by an overarching strategy aimed at moving the organization toward value-based care. It’s never too late to leverage population health “program” investments to build an effective value-based business model.
