Whether it's a payor enhancing reimbursement for care management of patients enrolled in medical homes or a provider funding its transformation to the medical home model, both organizations expect a healthy ROI from this patient-centered model of care.
Listen to pre-conference comments from
George Chedraoui and Dr. Don Liss.
During Medical Home Metrics and Measurements for Achieving ROI, a 90-minute webinar on April 1, 2009, now available as a CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a training DVD, we heard from two leading
industry experts who shared different viewpoints — the healthcare purchaser and the healthcare payor — and their strategies for achieving an ROI from the medical home.
George Chedraoui, healthcare leader with IBM and immediate past president of Bridges to Excellence, described the upstream measures that IBM is using to measure physician practice alignment with the medical home model of care and its formula for achieving a long-term significant ROI.
Dr. Don Liss, regional medical director for the mid-Atlantic region of Aetna, shared how Aetna is demanding objective and careful analysis of medical home initiatives, from patient and provider satisfaction to clinical and short and long-term financial yields.
You will also get details on:
- Establishing metrics to measure the effectiveness of medical home initiatives;
- Developing reportable measures, from upstream to downstream measures;
- Designing quality assessments for medical homes; and
- Understanding medical home ROI from a purchaser's and a payor's perspective.
