In their paper entitled, Moving to Value with a Population Health Services Organization, Lumeris authors Jeff Smith and Jay Shah provide an overview of the current healthcare market landscape and explore the economic, political, and social drivers influencing the move toward value-based care. This transformation, which requires a change in both the care delivery and business models of healthcare, calls for payers, providers and consumers to develop new capabilities and rethink their roles in the healthcare value chain.
To support this transition, a population health services organization (PHSO) can provide the resourcing and infrastructure necessary to deliver sustainable clinical and financial outcomes. But building a PHSO is an enormous undertaking. To achieve improved performance faster, an operating partner can help mitigate the operational risk associated with performing under value-based arrangements. This paper highlights the critical attributes of an operating partner that can drive success in delivering population health outcomes.
