Today’s healthcare delivery is fragmented, and payment models often incentivize volume rather than outcomes.
To increase value, care needs to be organized around a patient’s medical condition. Transforming care delivery begins by including the right patients and making sure they have convenient access to care. Once in the care system, it’s about doing the right thing and doing things right. Highly-productive care teams perform along an optimized, integrated pathway.
New provision models ensure value at the heart of care delivery – designed to reduce costs with no sacrifices in outcomes.
Making care more affordable, available and accepted.
Implementing pathways that are optimized for patient volume, severity and variability, and directing patients.
