With government regulations, insurance giants, and private healthcare providers trending toward value-based models, medical organizations face significant challenges -- in terms of culture, processes, and technology -- in evolving away from for-fee services.
It’s not an easy transition, and that’s because it’s often far more difficult to measure outcome than it is to simply bill based on service performed. Outcome evaluation requires far greater integration among any given patient’s healthcare providers, and a level of communication that hasn’t been present in the American healthcare system.
But that’s all about to change.
CBS Interactive is proud to present "How to embrace value-based healthcare with IT," an in-depth whitepaper about the areas of healthcare IT that have to change, and the ways technology can smooth the transition, increase efficiency, and improve patient outcomes.
