Launching New Value-Based Care Products in 2017

bigstock--142733894.jpgMy optimistic view… As a provider of health care services, there is always concern with how and who will be paying for the services that are provided to patients in government programs. As a consumer, you are concerned with how you will be able to afford your premiums when they once again increase disproportionally with your income.

But the principles of quality, affordable care have remained consistent in the health care bubble that I have been involved in for over twenty years now -- Keep people well and out of the hospital and health care costs will remain low. From the early days of managed care, provider groups who were proactive in member wellness and management activities grew and flourished. Government agencies and health plans noticed these successes and began incorporating quality measures into incentive programs in a wide variety of forms. Unfortunately, these incentives led to mandates and extensive regulation and administration for everyone in the industry…driving up the administrative costs.

I am confident that health care reform, in whatever form it takes, will continue to focus on value-based care which embraces many of the core tenants of managed care from days gone by. The supporting technology in the market today analytics, disease and care management, is relatively mature and will continue to drive efficiencies in value-based care.

This week Citra Health was at HIMSS sharing with industry representatives our newest offerings, Applied Analytics and Population Health as a Service. While hundreds of companies were displaying tools, we are sharing how Citra can help organizations leverage those tools to effectively and affordably interpret and act on the voluminous reports that these tools generate. Whether the results are generated from our EZ-Insight solution, or any other analytics tool, Citra has the knowledge and resources to put that information to use helping our clients achieve maximum value from their technology investment!
