The Institute for Health Technology Transformation and Caradigm Release Special Report on Value-Based Reimbursement

12 Things You Need to Know About Value-Based Reimbursement: Building an Infrastructure for Financial Risk

NEW YORK – August 17, 2015– The Institute for Health Technology Transformation (iHT2) in collaboration with Caradigm, the leader in Population Health, today released a special report on value-based reimbursement, 12 Things You Need to Know About Value-Based Reimbursement: Building an Infrastructure for Financial Risk.

This report draws insights from industry analysts, leading healthcare providers and healthcare IT leaders to describe the strategies some large healthcare systems and ACOs are using to prepare for the impending acceleration of the shift to value-based reimbursement.

The report states that many healthcare organizations “already take varying amounts of financial risk, but the percentage of their revenues coming from shared savings, bundled payments and global or partial capitation is certain to rise in the next few years.” In the report, the contributors discuss strategies that organizations are using to prepare for the shift to value-based reimbursement, including the use of data aggregation, analysis, and predictive modeling to identify and manage high-risk patients who generate the majority of costs.
