Change in reimbursement isn’t waiting for tomorrow. It’s happening right now. Rather than paying for each procedure and office visit, government and private health plans are moving toward a payment model based on the health of an organization’s patient population. During this transition, an organization’s success depends on its ability to manage a variety of payment models.
Health care organizations must successfully administer these payment models — which continue to evolve and grow more complex —while optimizing quality, outcomes and patient satisfaction. In short, they must manage “fusion reimbursement” or risk significant cuts in revenue.
