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.
A key challenge in moving to a risk-based environment? Trying to create a single roadmap that meets the needs of different constituents, says Julie Bonello, who talks about the need to define “a new, integrated way of working.”
The difference between what population health management software can do and what’s being advertised is significant, says David Bensema, who makes a case for “open communication and mutual accountability.”
