Two paths to a value-based business model
As markets move to reward population management, hospitals and health systems face two significant transitions.

Managing the transition requires continually matching new care delivery competencies to new payment incentives. In the process, systems must shift from piloting population health with employee populations to aligning contract terms across payers.
