Listen to Neal C. Hogan and LeAnne Hester as they present Is Population Health Dead? Lessons from the Frontier of Value Based Care. After their presentation you’ll learn:
- Despite decades of preparation for value-based care and population health, the vast majority of health system business remains patient-driven fee for service.
- Health systems can prepare for a possible risk-based future, but the bulk of attention should be focused on the core tenets of a successful health system enterprise: maximizing efficiency, minimizing cost, and delivering best in class patient quality – patient by patient.
- Key to this effort is eliminating care variation: the Rothman Index is a vital tool in identifying care variation and supporting health system efforts to improve throughput, quality and safety.
