Payment systems in healthcare are shifting from fee-for-service/pay-for-volume to value-based, pay-for-outcomes, and providers must change practice and payers must change risk models accordingly. Providers and payers are looking for actionable, evidence-based, clinically relevant data on patients’ outcomes, health status, and functional ability, long after they leave the hospital or physician’s office. How can we build and deploy technology tools to help prepare physicians, care teams, and payers to collect the critical data post-intervention and over time to track outcomes? How do ensure the data is valid and trackable, and accurately reflects the goals of care? How do we route the data to the appropriate care team member to work with the patient to improve outcomes? In this session, we will explore the current status of patient-reported outcomes enabled by technology, and identify key future opportunities supported by emerging business models.
