Shifting to value-based reimbursement (VBR) is a challenging journey, and trying to proactively manage risk at the same time only makes things more complicated. However, there are simple ways a provider organization can more proactively position their organization for a shift to VBR.
Relying on intuition, some healthcare leaders think there is an inverse relationship between positive patient outcomes and healthy labor costs. When labor costs improve, they assume staff is reduced and patient outcomes suffer. And when labor costs worsen, leadership believes it’s easier to meet quality goals and control length of stay. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Although the recent election is now in our rearview mirror, the stunning end to a bruising campaign is still causing a stir. Here are six key observations to keep in mind as the new federal and state governments take shape.
The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2016 conference is history, but your need for automated, intelligent workflows in the transition to value-based care is very much front and center. The right focus can help take radiology beyond its traditional borders and even beyond imaging.
As you navigate the transition from volume to value, a comprehensive radiology imaging software solution is paramount to your success. An integrated solution can not only transform the way you practice radiology but also can help you effectively move to value-based care.
In order to move forward on your journey to value-based care, you will need a plan to address the seven challenges to enterprise imaging, identified by the Society for Imaging and Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) and the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) in their August white paper. We summarized the first three in our previous post and discuss the remaining four challenges today.
Enterprise imaging is a key component for health systems moving to value-based care. It enables collaboration and communication that helps increase quality for both care and outcomes. But before these benefits can be realized, there are significant challenges to overcome.
18 healthcare and financial experts around the nation to weighed in on where they see the greatest opportunity for margin improvement. We’ve compiled their insights into a helpful e-book, as well as a easy-to-share infographic.
We recently asked 18 healthcare and financial experts to weigh in on this question, providing us with incredible insights and actionable tips that were compiled into our Conquering Margin Improvement in a Changing Environment e-book. In fact, their insights were so good that we simply couldn’t fit them all in.
The transition to value-based care is pushing radiology beyond its traditional borders, and success in this new model is measured in better patient outcomes. A more integrated, collaborative radiology workflow can connect both systems and people, which helps provide much-needed context for better patient care.
