Research Brief – Connecting the Healthcare Ecosystem: Data is the Lifeblood
Healthcare executives have begun to recognize the complexity and importance of curating, managing, analyzing, and acting on data as one of the keys to managing downside risk, and more broadly, transformation through value-based care.
The ecosystem in which patients receive care has grown exponentially over time, and now encompasses payers, clinically integrated networks (CINs), providers, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and more. Gone are the days when patients had one doctor from whom they received care, and one record of their health history and needs, stored in one location.
And, while medical and technological advancements have no doubt been beneficial for patient outcomes and quality of life, the benefits have come with the added challenge of aggregating, cleansing and managing the resulting health data.
This paper outlines perspectives from a leading consulting practice, Health Data Management and Verinovum regarding the implications of managing data across a wide variety of stakeholders, including specific use cases for payers, ACOs and CINs.
