Reimbursement across the patient episodic care journey

Sponsored by Allscripts

Across the country, the cost of healthcare is on the rise. A fundamental change is needed. Delivery system reform is helping spark the change in how healthcare providers are getting paid—based on the quality of care delivered, not the volume of patients seen.

Specifically, episodic care measures the quality of the care a patient receives in total—not just at the end of the visit, but at the end of an episode. A patient’s episodic journey spans the care continuum and can involve primary care providers, specialists, therapists, surgeons and others—each getting reimbursed based on the patient’s clinical outcome.

To tackle value-based care, organizations must have complex analytical systems in place to track and manage patients and patient populations, as well as to understand who contributed to care and the quality of that care. Allscripts helps major hospitals and health systems assess their program performance—clinically, operationally and financially.
