The future of healthcare is proactive, preventative, and predictable

The transition to value-based care is imperative for improving patient care outcomes and lowering costs. To help ensure a successful and sustainable transition to accountable care, providers, health systems, and hospital administrators must ask and answer a fundamental question:

What key steps can healthcare organizations take to make this shift successfully? 

In this new whitepaper, Ashok Roy, MD, MPH, MBA, Chief Medical Officer, Value-based Care at Signify Health, addresses the question and provides solutions. In Improving Patient Outcomes by Optimizing Technology: Making the leap to value-based care, Dr. Roy addresses how proactive, preventative, and predictable methodologies and workflows enabled by technology and data analytics will define the future of healthcare delivery. 

Key points in this paper include:

  • Adopting a population health approach with preventative measures helps to reduce avoidable utilization. ACOs provide the structure to focus on whole-person health.
  • Utilizing remote monitoring and text messaging maintains consistent patient engagement beyond in-person appointments. 
  • Leveraging data analytics enables providers to identify risks, predict needs, and initiate timely interventions.
  • Establishing a governance model backed by data-driven initiatives helps to ensure providers are adequately supported.
  • Team-based care is essential to value-based care and can further set the foundation for implementing programs addressing social determinants of health and health literacy. 
  • Proactively identifying patient needs through data-driven predictions helps to identify gaps in care and uncover unmet needs.
  • Effectively monitoring patients with predictable analytics allows providers to deliver appropriate care when needed and prevent lapses.
  • Engaging patients in their care journey aids in improving their understanding of their health, resulting in better health outcomes.

    Value-based models of care align financial incentives with whole-person, holistic health. This shift from fee-for-service care to care based on value is essential to lowering costs, enhancing the patient experience, and improving care outcomes.
