In the highly-complex U.S. healthcare system, effective patient-centered care requires a clear understanding of which doctors, organizations and other care providers are actively involved in a patient’s care. Evolving models for payment reform and new approaches to care delivery such as precision medicine further heighten the need for an effective process to link (or attribute) patients to providers.
This presentation explains the various current approaches for attributing patients to providers including some challenges presented by these approaches; explores the value of a robust, physician-centric approach to attribution; and discusses a consistent, shared process to communicate and track affiliations among a patient’s caregivers.
Identify current approaches to patient-provider attribution including their strengths and weaknesses
Describe evolving approaches to patient-provider attribution that offer real-time knowledge of patient events to increase opportunities for care coordination
Recognize how evolving approaches to attribution can mesh with/augment existing methods to create robust, real-time attribution standards that will allow all providers to know who else is treating their patients
