As value-based care (VBC) payment models become increasingly common, organizations need a better approach to managing risk and achieving profitability in population health. With an estimated $900 billion in wasted healthcare dollars every year, exacerbated by the pandemic’s temporary halt on elective procedures, health systems need to curb rising costs by taking a deeper dive into their VBC strategies.
To empower population health leaders to overcome these challenges, the Health Catalyst Value Optimizer™ solution instantly identifies the most valuable opportunities for VBC performance improvement. These insights help population health leaders optimize their VBC strategy and make population health efforts profitable.
Traditional VBC solutions and population health offerings provide only black-box logic and groupers, which prevent leaders from accessing a baseline understanding of their populations or their current metrics for cost, risk, and quality. Common healthcare data infrastructure, such as EHRs, also lack the ability to deliver granular-level revenue and utilization information about specific populations—critical information leaders need to compare the total cost of care with performance benchmarks across the care continuum.
Healthcare organizations have continually relied on population health tools that lack data integration capabilities, resulting in partial data sets and an incomplete view of their populations. Without advanced analytics tools that provide comprehensive insight, leaders can’t pinpoint high-priority patient groups and instead use guesswork to steer population health efforts. Even when existing population health tools can identify improvement areas, they fail to offer practical next steps to address gaps and improve suboptimal health outcomes.
It’s time for leaders to reject substandard population health results and take control of their VBC strategy with a comprehensive value-based care solution—Health Catalyst Value Optimizer. Value Optimizer empowers healthcare organizations to achieve profitability in population health management by aggregating, analyzing, and instantly identifying the most valuable opportunities for improvement throughout the care continuum.
