Each value-based care payment model brings with it a unique set of population health management capability requirements and suggested best practices. Organizations looking to operate effectively in this payment environment must be able to systematically analyze and act upon the particular requirements and best practices called for in the value-based care payment models in which they choose to participate. This Value Guide, developed in collaboration with the HIMSS Clinical & Business Intelligence Committee’s Population Health Task Force, is designed to
- Define the pillars of population health management
- Identify core functionality associated with each pillar, and
- Distinguish between essential and non-essential population health management capabilities for the various value-based care payment models.
This guide supports healthcare stakeholders making decisions on their organization’s population health management strategies.
