SPH Analytics: Quality as the Foundation for Population Health Management

As Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) and commercial payer value-based contracts become firmly entrenched healthcare reimbursement models, many health systems, ACOs, and health plans have found that poor quality is the root cause of high cost, and that by addressing quality measure compliance and care gap closure as a first step in their population health management journey, cost and utilization metrics start to improve. SPH Analytics’ Triple Aim solutions for population health management have generated significant improvements in quality outcomes, costs, and patient engagement for our clients.
