Value-Based Care Insights

By Lumina Health Partners

Value-based care isn’t the “future of health care delivery,” it has already arrived. But value-based care is only the starting point of this conversation. We must also examine how we can bring more value to health care by increasing efficiencies, reimagining how financial performance is measured, and so on.

Of course, realizing this level of transformation isn’t easy.

That’s why we created the Value-Based Care Insights Radio Show – to empower health care organization leaders like you with the actionable guidance and strategic knowledge you need to optimize performance, as well as meet the

For the second part of our three-part series, we invited Cliff Frank back to discuss the changes among risk-based contracts. Daniel and Cliff explore the pushback with RAF scores, new CMS announcements with potential health equity indicators, and much more.

Navigating Value-Based Contracting Products

Navigating Value-Based Contracting Products

Many hospitals are experiencing increasing workflow challenges due to high inflation rates. As a result, government and commercial payers are responding in unique ways.  

On this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, host Daniel J. Marino discusses economic challenges in health care, particularly hospitals and physicians. We’re joined by commercial insurance and government reimbursement expert, Cliff Frank. 

 

KEY TAKEAWAYS: 

 

Hospitals and other health care facilities are facing a number of challenges, and inflation is a key component to internal issues. It’s essential that providers have an understanding on how to navigate an ever-changing infrastructure. 

Risk contracting has been a common issue for hospitals as payers are making money on empty hospitals and slower ORs. This obviously increases the need for better contracts between payers and providers. 

The ACO module has changed drastically, impacting how care is coordinated for Medicare patients.

Transforming Workplace Culture with Survey Data

Transforming Workplace Culture with Survey Data

Since the pandemic, many healthcare provider organizations find themselves re-instituting empowerment initiatives initially created pre-COVID, however, the recent circumstances had a vast impact on the workforce culture. Today, organizations must focus on a transformative culture which allows the workforce members to prosper in their current roles while the fundamental needs of the employees are met. How can leaders ensure this? 

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino is joined by Todd Brook and Danica Wasser from Engagement Multiplier to discuss culture transformation and what it takes to have a thriving workforce.  

 

Insights: 

The key to workforce engagement is meeting the three basic needs of the employees: physiological needs, safety needs, and a sense of belonging. 

There is more to workplace happiness than just giving out raises; pay is no longer the only driving component people desire.  

Obviously, all humans – and workforce members- are different, therefore, leaders must ask pertinent questions and be prepared to act.

Hospital Locum Tenens: An Alternative Value-Add

Hospital Locum Tenens: An Alternative Value-Add

Today, most hospital physicians are experiencing some level of burnout due to increased challenges with greater work activities, high levels of patient needs, and low staffing levels. These challenges lead to a desire for early retirement and physicians looking for new medical-related career options. This has placed increased pressures on hospitals to either ramp-up their recruiting efforts or consider alternative staffing models to support their clinical specialty services.  As an alternative, many hospitals are turning to locum tenens for physician staffing support providing value to the hospital, its workforce, and most importantly, for patients.

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino talks with Richard Heim from LocumsPro to discuss some of the benefits locum tenens bring to hospital patients and staff.

Insights

Recent information shows that 53% of physicians today are experiencing some level of burnout which may impact care delivery. Malpractice and ongoing political struggles are having a negative effect on physician recruitment for hospitals. Personal situations such as maternity or paternity leave, or a desire for work/life balance, may require hospitals to consider alternative staffing in which locum tenens can cover.

Optimizing Revenue Cycle Performance for Hospitals and Medical Groups

Optimizing Revenue Cycle Performance for Hospitals and Medical Groups

As hospitals and medical groups continue to focus on financial performance, optimizing their revenue cycle through denial management drives results. To effectively reduce denial rates, revenue cycle leaders must first discover the root cause of denials. A focused approach to denial management can provide health care leaders considerable financial and operational improvements.

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino sat down with Tina Hodges and Michael Brown from RSM to discuss some of the revenue cycle challenges facing hospitals and medical groups today, as well as tactics to reduce denials and increase financial performance.

The impact of private equity investments on health care providers

The impact of private equity investments on health care providers

Over the past year, we have seen substantial investments in healthcare made by non-traditional health care providers such as CVS, Walgreens and Amazon and others as they position themselves as strong participants in healthcare delivery.  Last year, 2022, was one of the highest years for health care deal-making with private equity investing considerable resources into technology, physician services and analytics. How will these new deals impact the health care industry?

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino sat down with Brian Greenberg and Zach Eisenberg from Greenberg Advisors, to discuss trends and “hotspots” of investments in health care.

Optimizing Technologies to Drive Population Health Performance

Optimizing Technologies to Drive Population Health Performance

As health systems, integrated provider networks, clinically integrated networks (CINs), and accountable care organizations (ACOs) engage in population health initiatives, aligning technology with value-based contracts' performance goals is a key success factor. The lack of alignment can be attributed to a disjointed vision, fragmented operations, and misaligned information technology (IT).

In this episode of Value-Based Care Insights, Daniel J. Marino is joined by Julie Bonello, Founder of Integrate Health, along with Brian Bentley and Nick Frenzer from Epic Health Technologies, to explore how to optimize value-based technologies and drive a higher level of population health performance.

Insights

To drive successful performance of value-based contracts, health care organizations must have an aligned vision, operations, and IT systems, including the electronic health record The structure and leadership of the organization must be led through a clinical lens to achieve results in population health There are critical foundational factors that provider organizations must consider as they adopt technology

Each year, one in five Americans visit the emergency department (ED) at least once  – and these costly ED visits are on the rise. Are they a symptom of a larger issue in our health care system? Many of emergency visits are preventable – this may be a symptom for inefficient care management, inadequate patient access, or lack of patient knowledge.

Embracing Operational Effectiveness to Drive Performance

Embracing Operational Effectiveness to Drive Performance

During the past 18 months, hospitals and health systems have focused on reducing expense mostly through FTE attrition.  Many health systems and hospitals are at a point where reducing costs cannot come from reducing FTEs but must occur from other places.
