Supported by governmental and payer programs that focus on value across the healthcare system, healthcare organizations are increasingly participating in value-based risk contracting. These organizations are evolving from fee-for-service physician-centric hospitals focused on their inpatient care, to organizations focused on clinical integration, population health, or even person-centric organizations with the consumer as central to the organization of care delivery.
This shift has not been without its challenges, such as physician engagement and alignment and data-driven insights to manage risk and clinical outcomes.
