nThrive value-based health care solutions

nThrive recently partnered with the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) to host a webinar on value-based care. "The Strategic Value of Value," was presented by nThrive Chief Medical Officer Carl E. Couch, MD, MMM, an expert in population health who helped launch a successful accountable care organization (ACO).

In the presentation, Dr. Couch explained that, in simple terms, value equals quality over cost. However, for different stakeholders, value means different things. As part of the discussion he explored the meaning of value to providers, payors and patients and why it is important to recognize the needs of all to implement an effective value-based care strategy. He also discussed essential health information technology requirements to achieve comprehensive population health results, calling out population segmentation, clinical integration and disease management nurses as particularly crucial when making value-based care investments.

In addition to the recent webinar, Dr. Couch also recently authored a blog for Rural Health Voices, "Why rural health care providers should invest in value-based solutions," discussing specific challenges providers face in rural markets, especially when making investment decisions. He noted that even taking small actions now is the best assurance that organizations won't be left behind when value-based care directly impacts rural markets.
