Integrating healthcare delivery between risk-bearing entities, such as providers and insurers, is, on the surface, an important step towards population health management and value-based goals. However, even vertically integrated units tend to function separately around patient care. As a result, patients are spread thin between receiving care, navigating insurance, and more—a situation that degrades the patient experience, thwarts optimal outcomes, and interferes with value-based goals. However, some organizations are bridging the gap between healthcare entities to improve quality and decrease costs of caring for at-risk patient populations through a sustainable, collaborative population health model. By joining forces and using analytics to drive decisions and scale programs, truly integrated risk-bearing entities put patients at the center of care, meeting their healthcare needs in a more efficient, cost-effective way.
