As the reimbursement models
change for healthcare providers, moving from fee-for-service
to reimbursement based upon quality outcomes and
patient satisfaction, it is becoming increasingly
important for providers to know and understand
the population level health data of their patients.
This is the level of data that payers are using
as a basis for reimbursement based upon quality
and satisfaction. This is the type of data that
can be used to improve the quality of care at
your site and is presently used in Patient-Centered
Medical Homes and Accountable Care Organizations.
