As hospitals around the country are adapting to the shift from fee-for-service reimbursement to a value-based care model focused on quality over quantity, the need for trusted evidence-based decision support is more important than ever before.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service states that value-based programs support a three-part approach based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Triple Aim with directives of better care of individuals, better population health and lower cost. These directives are measured in reduced hospital readmissions rates, increased population health management strategies and decreased healthcare costs.
EBSCO clinical decision support, shared decision-making and skill development solutions support value-based care by...
- Helping to improve patient outcomes and experience of care by empowering patients to take an active role in their health care and enabling clinicians and patients to have meaningful conversations about preference-sensitive decisions putting the patient at the center of their care
- Ensuring continuity of care by providing trusted information and patient education materials that work cohesively across specialties and the interprofessional care team
- Reducing the cost of care by helping patients make the best decisions for their unique needs and values resulting in lower readmission rates, increased adherence to care plans and in many cases more conservative treatment decisions
- Decreasing the burden on health care professionals by supplying them with fast, efficient solutions to stay current with the latest clinical evidence, find answers to questions at the point of care and earn continuing education to maintain certifications and licensure
