The transition from a volume-based, acute care-oriented payment model to one that emphasizes value and prevention causes healthcare organizations to assume more responsibility for managing patients’ care outside of a traditional delivery model. As a result, healthcare providers must develop care coordination and population health management strategies that include partnerships to maximize available resources devoted to managing conditions that increase costs. Provider partners must combine technological innovation with workflows to create effective data management and information sharing across the care continuum.
This presentation focuses on Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital and the integrated care plan followed since 2015. MLKCH’s CIO Sajid Ahmed explains how his community hospital employs a variety of strategies, such as eConsults, telehealth services, information sharing, mobile technologies and partnerships to offer patients expanded and easier access to care services.
