  4. 4. © 2017 Craneware The problem is complex #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 Today healthcare providers: Don’t understand true margins Cannot couple financial and clinical outcomes Unable to control and manage costs Have no control over revenue models and sources Don’t influence community health behaviors Market interest is growing to find a system that will: #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 Bring together financial and clinical outcomes Integrate cost & outcome analytics with overall financial management Instill confidence in financial clarity Provide visibility into improved margins Foster quality patient outcomes through behavioral and genetic applications At its core is maximizing value for patients: that is, achieving the best outcomes at the lowest cost. We must move away from a supply-driven health care system organized around what physicians do and toward a patient-centered system organized around what patients need. We must shift the focus from the volume and profitability of services provided—physician visits, hospitalizations, procedures, and tests—to the patient outcomes achieved. - Michael Porter, The Strategy That Will Fix Healthcare Health care leaders and policy makers have tried countless incremental fixes—attacking fraud, reducing errors, enforcing practice guidelines, making patients better “consumers,” implementing electronic medical records—but none have had much impact Manage all aspects of revenue (FFS and VSB), costs, and operations for whole picture Genomics and Financial Data – combining the two to create a holistic patient picture Providing a ‘system’ that enables healthcare providers to plan, execute, and monitor value-based economics
