Incentivizing outcomes instead of volume requires payment reform. A key to improving outcomes is focusing on how care is coordinated, specifically during transitions to other care settings. Outcomes are improved where they are incentivized. Improved outcomes is the culmination of healthcare reform. Payment model changes impact how care is delivered, which impacts how patient care is coordinated. Healthcare reform is changing everything. A stated goal of modern healthcare technology initiatives is to improve patient outcomes. Doing so requires a chase upstream to its source, payment. Improving outcomes, means changing the way patient care is coordinated. Changes in care coordination is a reflection on changes to how patient care is delivered. To change how care patient care is delivered, new payment models are growing to incentivize delivery models.

Connected Care – Unlock the value of data

The healthcare industry has made an enormous investment in systems primarily designed to capture clinical data, with the idea that those same systems would allow us to reduce costs and improve care. Unfortunately, the systems designed to capture this information and are often ill suited to truly unlock the value in the data.

The Road to Interoperability: Open Platform

Exchanging data between health information systems is an overarching concern in healthcare with a litany of standards to navigate, vendor-proprietary APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to consider, and basic connectivity. Many anticipate FHIR to solve basic data exchange. However, business practices, not technology, may be the primary impediment to true data liquidity.
