Conduent recently released a survey of more than 200 healthcare decision-makers exploring their views on the transition to a system of value-based patient medical care. Under value-based healthcare, providers are compensated for healthy outcomes rather than each service provided.
The results were illuminating. Nearly 90 percent of providers and payers we surveyed said less than half of their current portfolio is value-based. Of that group, 43 percent said less than 10 percent of their portfolio is value-based.
Population Health Management strategies can address some of the concerns that payers and providers raised about the shift to value-based healthcare. But these strategies often rely on disjointed and dis-integrated technology and services, which can make it harder to manage healthy patient populations.
This Thursday, Conduent and experts from the healthcare field will explore this topic and analyze payer and provider readiness based on insights from Conduent’s healthcare survey during a live Google+ Hangout.
The Google+ Hangout will be made up of two Conduent and four industry experts for whom value-based healthcare is top of mind.
- Mandi Bishop, leader of Dell’s Health Plan Innovation and Consulting Analytics Solutions team, whose charter is to develop next-generation data-driven solutions for health insurers, ACOs, and emerging risk-sharing arrangements.

During our conversation, we’ll answer questions such as:
- How can healthcare insurance providers remove financial obstacles?
- What gaps exist between the patient and their healthcare payer/provider?
- How should the relationship between providers and health plans change in the new healthcare economy?
- How can we ensure the healthcare system works better for consumers, and gives us more healthy outcomes?
But we also want to answer your questions. Use Twitter and hashtag #HealthITExperts to ask Tamara,, Mandi, Geeta, Jenn and Dave questions about value-based healthcare delivery.
