Access can be defined as providing a patient with the right care in the right setting at the right time. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and Vizient have published a new report, Learning and Leading in Access to Care: An Overview of Member Collaboratives from the AAMC and Vizient, that examines several national efforts focused on improving access to care in the clinical setting.
The future of health care
Drive change with the right analytics, technology and expertise
The health care landscape is in the midst of profound change. Providers continue to search for solutions to reduce operating costs and improve patient flow across the continuum of care in their journey to value-based care. Do you have the insights and tools you need to stay ahead?
Ambulatory or outpatient care is increasingly becoming a strategy for addressing challenges and shaping the future of health care. Business-savvy hospitals and physician groups looking toward the future are implementing solutions that measure, monitor and drive clinical and financial performance in ambulatory care settings. Developing such solutions requires:
- Robust, transparent data that can demonstrate the impact of efforts to improve quality, utilization and cost across the continuum of care
- Comparative benchmarking to measure and manage clinical activity, monitor coding compliance, maximize charge capture, track visit mix and optimize practice yield
- Analytics capabilities to provide an enhanced view of denials, collections, undercharges and revenue opportunities
- Collaborative intelligence, including peer networking and sharing of leading practices
Vizient offers industry-leading data and analytics as well as resources, tools, and educational and networking opportunities that can help you identify possible issues and develop solutions to make your ambulatory care facilities the best they can be.
As payment reform continues to move toward value-based models of care delivery, health system executives are assessing their readiness to conduct business as usual even as new payment models evolve. Health care leaders find that at least one element is foundational to success at virtually every stage on the payment reform continuum: alignment with physicians and other provider partners.
Read our white paper, “Physician alignment is a critical tool to enable a successful transition to value-based care,” to unlock insights into the “how” and “why” of what’s working in physician alignment strategies.
The last decade in health care has brought a major shift from volume to value. And while there have already been significant changes in how care is delivered, starting now, the status quo in health care will be challenged like never before as value-based care takes hold of the health care landscape.
Vizient collaborates with Medisolv to deliver powerful quality reporting and management solutions
Vizient, in collaboration with Medisolv, a quality reporting and management software provider, offers two data-driven and quality management solutions that improve reporting, performance and patient safety. Medisolv’s ENCOR for electronic measures is an advanced software tool that allows members to easily track, improve and submit electronic quality measures (eCQMs) to quality reporting programs such as the CMS IQR program. ENCOR for eligible clinicians allows ambulatory or inpatient facilities to monitor and submit all requirements for the CMS Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) program.
