The Evolving Healthcare Landscape

The healthcare system is facing unprecedented change, and health system leaders are looking to understand and adapt to a dramatically different market environment moving forward. With a fundamental shift in focus from providing volume-based care toward value-based care (VBC), quality and appropriateness are moving to the forefront of priority. The shift towards VBC is accompanied by new and innovative reimbursement models, resulting in significant impact on health system operations and finances. Furthermore, legislative pressures and the rise in consumerism in the healthcare market represent additional complexity as health systems look to maintain a competitive and profitable market position.

As health systems shift towards VBC models of delivery and reimbursement, leaders are looking to address the well-documented overutilization of high-tech diagnostic procedures and tests to improve the quality of patient care, optimize operational efficiency, and effectively manage costs. With the expanding role of healthcare technology investment to enable the shift towards VBC and satisfy regulatory requirements, health system leaders are looking to MedCurrent for best-in-class clinical decision support (CDS) solutions.
