Infographic #1Value-Based Care Transformation
Value-based care and payment reform are prompting hospitals and healthcare providers to more closely manage population health. Hospitals and health systems rely on technology and data to outline the characteristics of their population and identify high-risk patients in order to manage chronic diseases and deliver enhanced preventative care. One of the keys to value-based care transformation is being able to generate actionable insights to improve patient care and lower the overall costs of healthcare.

Infographic #4Recovery Audit Contractor Program
AHA wants Congress to reform the RAC Program. Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) audit Medicare claims for payment accuacy.

Misaligned financial incentives encourage RACs to second guess doctors and deny payment for medically necessary care, diverting resources from the patient. See the complete infographic.
