SAN ANTONIO, May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TAVHealth, an organization that offers community collaboration platforms that solve for Social Determinants of Health, announced today it has released a white paper.
Many healthcare providers are feeling uncertainty with the implications of value-based payment models, and the pressure to reduce readmission rates. The transition to value-based care will likely be bumpy and there are a lot of questions.
To address this uncertainty, TAVHealth identified key questions to help providers regain their footing in this new generation of healthcare. TAVHealth CEO, Jamo Rubin, M.D., teamed with Cindy Buckels, Director of Population Health, to address a gaping hole as providers implement value-based care – understanding why and how to solve for for Social Determinants of Health.
According to Dr. Rubin, "We wrote this paper to help providers identify blind spots in care plans. Fee-for-service care plans rarely addressed patient needs beyond the walls of the hospital. In a value-based world, helping patients and their families solve for these Social Determinants of Health lowers cost, creates better outcomes and more profitable value-based contracts."
"Being responsible for what happens to people after they leave the hospital requires a big change in behavior, and frankly, can feel disruptive. But disruption is part of the new normal in healthcare," commented Ms. Buckels. "We help providers extend their reach to their patients by offering ways for a community-wide team to communicate and collaborate about best practice for their individual patients. We help them dive deeper and get to know patients as people. We help them ask questions about access and obstacles to care and acting on this information results in improved outcomes."
