Educational Report

Although value-based and other outcomes-driven payment models are becoming more common, organizations are still at the beginning stages of preparing for these models, laying the groundwork for care coordination and consistent evidence-based practices. An important step in this process is readying financial functions and information systems to ensure the organization can accurately capture information about clinical activity, integrate and respond to clinical and financial data, and receive optimal payment for services rendered—all while minimizing financial risk.


This HFMA Educational Report, sponsored by Allscripts, looks at three key functions—data capture, data integration, and risk-based contracting—and discusses ways organizations can strengthen these areas and recognize needs for new competencies, workflows, and resource distribution.
