In the post-ACA era, aligning physicians with organizational goals appears to be gaining traction in health systems and hospitals nationwide. Based on a February survey of the HealthLeaders Media Council, comprising executives from healthcare provider organizations across the country, physician alignment remains a complex challenge. Even as value-based care continues to take effect, clinical integration or alignment is quickly emerging from a need to ensure quality, cut costs, and drive referrals across health systems and hospitals. Directly employing physicians has been one of the main strategies healthcare leaders are using to improve physician alignment with health systems. Download this free report today, and learn about the results of aligning the goals of physicians and organizations.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the nation’s largest payer, has set a clear direction with its publication of targets: By 2018, 50% of fee-for-service payments will be through alternative payment models, such as ACOs and bundled payments, and 90% of FFS payments will be tied to quality or value. And CMS has begun to introduce mandatory bundles. This suggests that all providers will need to develop population health competencies, including the ability to manage risk for both cost and quality.

Nearly six years after passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the healthcare industry is in the midst of a massive retooling that is dramatically altering the way we think about cost management, strategic partnerships, and customer service. Fee-for-service reimbursement is giving way to new models of care delivery and payment to support a system based on pay-for-value. With financial risk or payments tied to value measures (such as patient satisfaction, clinical performance, and population health), compensation and reimbursement will increasingly be tied to value-based incentives.

Workforce management and the pursuit of productivity have formed a consistent pain point for hospitals for several years. The Affordable Care Act has only exacerbated the problem, increasing the demand on providers as the number of insured grows and the bar continues to rise on quality of care. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Council survey, workforce productivity and acuity-based staffing will continue to be top priorities this year. Karlene Kerfoot, PhD, chief clinical integration officer at API Healthcare, says the survey results indicate a shift taking place as workforce management initiatives are expected to deliver more than reduced labor costs.

Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.

In response to concerns raised by healthcare leaders that the absence of adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES) and race characteristics in patient populations impedes the fair comparison of hospitals on risk-standardized 30-day unplanned readmission rates, Truven Health AnalyticsTM evaluated the extent to which risk-adjusted readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and pneumonia are affected by adjustments for community-level SES factors through its Community Need Index (CNI) and patient race. The study shows there is, indeed, a statistically significant effect. For more, visit truvenhealth.com/wp/readmissionpenalties.

Healthcare providers can deliver much more effective care if they have an understanding of the characteristics, attitudes, and self-reported health status of a patient’s age group. By communicating effectively and delivering care in a manner that resonates with that particular group of patients, healthcare providers can strive to achieve better outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.

The Truven Health Analytics 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study identifies hospitals that achieve the best performance on a scorecard of performance measures. This year, based on comparisons between the winners and a peer group of similar high-volume hospitals that were not winners, the study found that if all cardiovascular providers performed at the level of this year’s winners, approximately 9,500 additional patients could survive, more than $1 billion could be saved, and almost 3,000 additional bypass and angioplasty patients could be complication-free. This is based on an analysis of Medicare patients; if the same standards were applied to all inpatients, the impact would be even greater.

Truven Health Analytics™ evaluated the extent to which community need— a measure of the underlying economic and social factors that affect the overall health of a community, including income, cultural/language barriers, education, insurance and housing—is associated with elevated rates of preventable hospitalizations or an increased risk of hospitalization believed to be preventable with quality ambulatory care. The results of this investigation reveal a modest but statistically significant association between community need and an increased risk of hospitalizations that are believed to be preventable with good-quality ambulatory care.
