One of the biggest hurdles in crafting a population health strategy is to get providers and vendors on the same page in terms of how they can work together effectively and what the solutions can realistically deliver, says Bradley Hunter of KLAS.
Using embedded care managers can result in higher patient satisfaction and decreased readmissions, but perhaps most importantly, it can “extend the reach of providers,” says Terri Steinberg.
One of the most important components of Christiana Care’s population health strategy is the use of embedded care managers who can access data in real time, says Terri Steinberg.
Although few vendors are “knocking it out of the park” in an area as complex as population health, providers remain optimistic about their ability to deliver, says Bradley Hunter of KLAS.
The strategy at Christiana Care has never been to rush into anything, and the shift toward value-based care was no exception, says CHIO Terri Steinberg, who talks about the organization’s journey.
