Negotiating the Minefield
Making Bundled Payments work for you in an era of Healthcare Payment Reform is a complex minefield of care coordination. Three key elements have been identified for successful transition to the pending mandates.1
- Simple and transparent Patient Reported Outcomes technology to derive analytics on cost, outcomes, and quality of care.
- High-integrity care coordination and patient engagement from pre-surgical consultation through discharge / post-acute care
- Physician and Hospital Alignment
ValidCare is a Colorado-based, Digital Healthcare company focused on improving the surgical episode of care. Our Customers, who are pioneering the transformation to value-based care, improve their financial, operational, and patient health by leveraging our enabling technologies.
