A recent report from Brookings discussed how value-based care payment models could aid in the prevention, detection, and management of diabetes:
Making feasible changes to the way health care is paid for can better support the needed workforce structures, care management systems, and care coordination tools to assist patients and their clinicians in managing diabetes and diabetes risk factors.
The report further noted:
By transitioning payment more toward accountable models, providers can better invest in early interventions to prevent diabetes and provide routine support to control patients’ illnesses like diabetes. Better capabilities, data, and provider performance tracking are needed to ensure that these new models for payment successfully translate to care improvements.
Clearly, care coordination and patient navigation are useful for many different types of patients.
The use of data and analytics is a proven way to further expand the value proposition for these capabilities.
