Achieving success with value-based reimbursement means aligning incentives, choosing the right metrics, and changing the culture, says Bradley Hunter of KLAS. The big question, of course, is how to make that happen.
The relationship between vendors and providers plays a critical role in the success of a population health program, says Bradley Hunter, and it starts with honest communication.
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.
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.
If the healthcare industry is going to take population health to the next level, we’re going to have to develop our skills further — and go for more than just the easy layups, says KLAS’ Bradley Hunter.
