Optimizing Population Health through Innovative Approaches and Value-Based Care: Enhancing Patient Engagement, Health Outcomes and Efficiencies
The rapidly expanding growth of value-based care programs has created an atmosphere for payers and providers to capitalize on opportunities to transform the delivery of healthcare and implement innovative approaches to delivering comprehensive and robust population health programs. Challenges are also present as public policy continues to push for greater patient and community engagement changing the landscape of how healthcare is delivered, incentivized and evaluated. At the intersection of this movement lies a roadmap for implementing programs that are predicated on greater efficiencies through improved technology, collaboration and partnerships.
The goal of this workshop is to assist attendees in identifying ways to implement value-based care initiatives into their organizations existing structure in a manner that drives up greater patient engagement, improved health outcomes and efficiencies. In the course of the workshop, participants will explore successful population health models with examples of integration across the continuum of care enabling attendees to begin constructing the means for implementing or growing a population health program that optimizes resources and supports value-based care initiatives.
During the workshop, attendees will:
• Identify elements of a successful population health program
• Conceptually apply those elements to his/her unique organizational structure
• Outline a brief roadmap of simple steps for implementing those elements with a list of key stakeholders within and outside his/her organization
