The approach many organizations use in population health – focusing on the sickest of the sick – may not the right way to go after all, says Joe Van De Graaff, who believes it’s time for a paradigm shift.
The good news? Healthcare organizations are embracing new paradigms when it comes to care management. The bad news? The solutions available today are falling short, says Joe Van De Graaff of KLAS.
The healthcare industry doesn’t need more mystery; it needs an open and competitive pricing market that lets consumers compare and shop for services, says Joe Van De Graaff of KLAS.
The days of health insurance only being truly useful in the event of a tragedy are nearing an end, says Joe Van De Graaff of KLAS, who believes health insurers have begun to act more like health “ensurers.”
The good news? The push toward accountable care has both providers and vendors thinking more creatively about how to improve care. The bad news? The transition is going to be both painful and difficult, says KLAS’ Joe Van De Graaff.
