How does value-based care and population health work together?

By Nicole DeCoudres, Director of Client Business Management at Arcadia
Healthcare Analytics Value-Based Care Population Health Management

Value-based care and population health work hand in hand to identify patients who are at risk for complex illnesses and in need of preventative screenings. Population health case managers can use an EMR (electronic medical record) or data aggregation tool to identify who the sickest patients are and what care they need.

Since the goal is to improve patient outcomes, we can see if these patients need certain screenings or risk gaps closed. This could include A1Cs for diabetic retinopathy screening, or an annual wellness visit.

You can also identify your highest cost patients as targets for outreach. Healthcare organizations can set up weekly or monthly calls with patients to check in. This way, the doctor can help advise on how to manage their conditions or provide referrals to sub-specialists.

Value-based care and population health have a direct correlation with the end goal to improve overall health outcomes. Arcadia’s aims to deliver insightful data so providers can make the most beneficial decisions for their patients. Learn more about VBC, ACOs and the future of healthcare here
