Moving from Volume-Based Care to Value-Based Care

Today, a fundamental paradigm shift is causing healthcare organizations -- payors, providers, caregivers, and patients -- to relook at how care is delivered. The focus of "value-based" care requires organizations to be more "patient centric” and not “episodic”. This will require adoption of technologies that enable data exchange, interoperability, care coordination, and behavior changes throughout the continuum of care.

Leaders in Healthcare IT will share their real-world insights and discuss the growing trends and technologies behind the next generation of healthcare from their tech-centric perspective and help us understand today's "clinical" real-world trends.

    I did not find the town hall meeting format effective. We jumped around and strayed off topic. I would have liked to have seen a topic with a central thesis fully explored.

      Hi Greg, We chose to try a town hall format last night, as often there has not been enough time for audience participation. Your feedback is appreciated, and we will continue to work to improve the meeting format. Thanks for joining in, Renée, Co-chair

    …"value-based" systems that focus on controlling costs through a more holistic approach that reimburses providers on the basis of outcomes for a given "episode" of care.

    Jeff Tagney, the CEO of Doximity, explained how their tool is used by over 130,000 doctors (20% of US MDs) to communicate with one another when they need to share information about a patient or obtain a consultation. He noted that "miscommunication" is the 5th leading cost of death in the US. Rahul Mahadevan of the Stanford Medical Center talked about the challenges in forming ACOs, which is actually an area that is still being defined.

    There are two You Tube videos pointing out some of the challenges of ACOs: and

    If you were there, please add a post with any other important points.

    Thanks to our speakers and to everyone who attended last night. There was a wide-ranging discussion of the changes that are happening in response to several factors, including the alarming trend towards increasing expenditures for health care in the US and the evolving regulatory requirements from the HITECH Act under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Besides Meaningful Use of Electronic Medical Records, there is increasing attention being given to "care coordination" for patients seen by multiple healthcare providers and at multiple locations or at home. A fair amount of the discussion centered on the emerging concept of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). These are intended to shift the emphasis from generating revenue through "volume-based" systems that are paid by the numbers of appointments, tests and procedures, to... (continued in next post)
