Population health solutions can help solve the MACRA puzzle

Share this post:

MACRA is designed to pull healthcare organizations out of fee-for-service payment models and establish value-based reimbursement as the primary method of financing healthcare. As a result, the statute effectively requires clinicians and hospitals to change how they deliver care.

Instead of simply diagnosing and treating sick patients, they must keep all of their patients healthy to do well under MACRA or any value-based contract with a private health plan.

This white paper describes how data and analytics can support providers at various levels of MACRA implementation.
