When considering Healthcare Integration, it is tempting to begin the alignment of incentives with funding models. Or to be enticed into the false premise that co-location alone breaks down silos between physical healthcare, dental care, behavioral health and addiction treatment.
TBD Solutions believes those are starting points that miss the mark.
In an environment of mergers and acquisitions within the healthcare marketplace, it is easy to forget one simple formula: Healthcare Integration — better coordination, care and treatment — is always centered around the patient.
TBD Solutions analyzes and develops new starting points that recognize true opportunity for care improvement begins with the person served and considers how best to create partnership to deliver improved population health and care experiences for the patient. It’s how to share risk while working collaboratively. It’s about having those that best know a population convene dialog within care teams and teaching all how to participate and listen. New thinking is needed to ascend from the traditional payer-doctor healthcare model to rely on teams of qualified professionals across multiple disciplines to engineer better healthcare.
TBD Solutions stays on the cutting edge of new Federal programs for care delivery – both its funding and design – and helps write informed applications to pursue opportunities that create innovation. We know from experience that quality metrics and accreditation standards can become barriers to breaking down silos of care. Our experts instead leverage these standards and help teams shift focus and change the conversation. Sometimes, the best measures of how a person, system or population are doing cannot be captured in HEDIS measures or HL-7 data transfers but require something new.
TBD Solutions helps organizations create “new” metrics and leverage existing ones to help organizations achieve their strategic objectives. And when it’s time to have independent evaluation, our team has the industry knowledge and technical expertise to provide a review of both efficacy and recommendations on improvements.
