Value Based Reimbursement Leveraging Data to Build a Successful Risk-based Strategy

Leveraging Data to Build a Successful Risk-based Strategy

With the onset of accountable care and payment reform, healthcare organizations now depend on cross-continuum analytics to expose greater opportunities for streamlined, optimized care. One of the first steps to laying the foundation of cross-continuum analytics is identifying your populations and stratifying risk.

Our webinar, Leveraging Data to Build a Successful Risk-based Strategy, was delivered live on Tuesday June 30th , giving keen insight into the use of credible performance analysis to help drive physician engagement across the enterprise. Attendees learned best practices for empowering physician leaders to drive change in behavior for improved clinical, financial and value-based outcomes.
