While fee-for-service models offer little accountability for health outcomes, more and more providers are looking at new fee-for-value models that reward their ability to deliver higher-quality care with greater efficiency. However, succeeding in new value-based payment models means provider organizations must adopt new approaches to delivering care and engaging patients. Population health management and registry tools, for instance, can help providers understand the overall well-being of their patients and better address chronic conditions.

Health Data Management recently brought together a distinguished panel of health IT executives to discuss the question of whether the healthcare industry as a whole is ready for accountable, patient-centric healthcare and what stakeholders need to do to partner, collect and arrange patient information to realize the vision of a truly patient-based, value-oriented healthcare delivery system.

Roundtable participants included Vishal Agrawal, M.D., president of Harris Healthcare Solutions; Maureen Gaffney, senior vice president of clinical operations and chief medical information officer of Winthrop University Hospital; Joe Kimura, M.D., deputy chief medical officer at Atrius Health; Stephen Martin, Jr., executive director of the Association for Community Health Improvement at the American Hospital Association; Micky Tripathi, president and CEO of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative; Dave Whitlinger, executive director of the New York eHealth Collaborative; and Noland Joiner, chief technology officer at MarkLogic, the event sponsor.
