Value-based care will lead to lower costs, higher efficiency, and better patient outcomes. But sometimes, focus on the day-to- day logistics of your transition can cause you to lose sight of the larger goal. If you find enthusiasm for your value-based care initiatives waning — whether you’re halfway there, haven’t yet started, or are in the final sprint to the finish – consider these three ideas.
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.
What’s next for health IT in 2016? As value-based, patient-centered care becomes more desired in the healthcare community, health IT must adapt to these changing models by moving away from a fee-for-service model.
Imaging technology is quickly charting a path toward interoperability for the enterprise, allowing hospitals and patients to access clinical data and images in real time. This represents a new era for medical imaging solutions, but how can hospital executives manage these new resources?
Don Dennison, president/principle, Don K. Dennison Solutions, Inc., and director-at-large on the Board of Directors for the Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), sought to answer this question at a recent McKesson event.
