When it comes to how close population health solutions are to being fully developed, the gap between what vendors and providers believe is alarmingly big, says Taylor Davis of KLAS.
There’s nothing simple about population health – in fact, even defining it is complex, says Adam Gale. But KLAS is determine to work with providers and vendors to create a neutral framework.
From overpromising and under-delivering to relying on a cookie-cutter approach, there are several challenges providers can encounter when engaging with consultants, says Lois Krotz of KLAS.
One of the biggest concerns vendors have with population health? Providers be hesitant to abandon the fee-for-service world that has brought them success, says Taylor Davis of KLAS.
In addition to delivering some much-needed clarity on population health IT functionality, KLAS sought to identify the biggest challenges by inviting vendors and providers to a recent Summit. The results were quite telling, says Taylor Davis.
