A new approach to data-driven decision making
Healthcare reform initiatives, driven by government, healthcare providers, and payers, areshifting the focus of care delivery and payment from individual points of service to the whole
patient and entire populations. This transition from “volume” to “value” (or population health)
requires a mindset change for hospitals, health systems, and other providers. It necessitates an
expanded perspective that encompasses the full spectrum of care for patient populations—from
primary to post-acute services—to improve health and outcomes while reducing costs.
