In the new environment of value-based reimbursement, patient outcomes have a major role in determining reimbursement dollars. Critical to the delivery of premium healthcare is putting processes in place that deliver consistent outcomes and do so in the most efficient way possible. Value-based purchasing and accountable care models will have significant impact on healthcare organizations’ reimbursement levels. In order to succeed in this dynamic and rapidly shifting value-based environment, organizations must have the business intelligence, insights and processes to identify, prioritize and resolve quality and safety risks quickly to improve patient outcomes.
