Survey conducted by Health Leaders Media in collaboration with SCIO Health Analytics® in March 2018 illuminates how healthcare organizations are leveraging data and analytics to create a 360-degree view for action and some of the challenges that they are facing in managing at-risk populations.
Healthcare organizations are moving toward value-based care and increasingly adopting population health programs. Doing so requires a whole new mindset – specifically when thinking about prescription drugs.
A recent survey conducted by HealthLeaders Media shows that healthcare executives think their organizations are ready to take on the risk that is part and parcel of so many value-based care arrangements. Indeed, 73% of 101 healthcare leaders who participated in the survey said they are “very” or “somewhat” prepared to manage additional risk.
Healthcare providers are accustomed to taking things one day at a time. A patient comes in – and they deal with the presenting ailment and then move on. Under value-based care models, however, they need to look beyond the present and understand a patient’s future, in terms of clinical and financial risk.
