Most small practices will likely need to change the way they do business. Workflow transformation is required to arrive at the destination of value-based care. So we recommend that you:
Evaluate your current office workflows to maximize preventative healthcare and close care gaps, such as recommended age-appropriate healthcare maintenance screenings and wellness exams.
Reorganize the care team so that each member is used effectively and efficiently – especially when caring for high-risk, high-utilizing patients.
Explore outside partners to expand your network of patients, providers, and resources to care for all populations.
The key to improved patient outcomes is focusing on capturing the right data in real-time that is accurate and relevant and using that data to create knowledge to drive action. Whether you partner with experts in the field or go it alone, you need to evaluate your population health, EMR and data strategies. An experienced partner should truly understand the challenges you face and provide solutions that meet your unique needs.
