Our healthcare system is changing at a rapid pace. Currently, over 1,000 Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are leading the way to redesign care processes that will lead to both better outcomes and more appropriate care. ACOs and other forms of value-based payment models are pushing forward for a new business model of care delivery.
In an environment with so much changing, rising costs are one of the few constants. Coupled with the reality that costs to provide services are largely unknown, our healthcare industry is presented with a potentially crippling problem.
E&A published a strategy for healthcare organizations to use in the pursuit of redesigning their care process. We suggest organizations to (1) accurately measure and understand costs, and (2) create a value-based environment with an IT infrastructure tailored to the organization’s needs.
