Clinical workflow analysis is an important part of navigating the shift from fee-for-service to value-based payment models in the US healthcare industry.
Because value-based care rewards providers for quality over quantity of services, healthcare organizations must significantly transform clinical workflow patterns and clinical assessment capabilities to emphasize outcomes and efficiency — especially in post-acute care. Healthcare organizations have traditionally had a difficult time managing care after discharge. Consequently, this stage of the patient recovery is most at risk for less-than-ideal outcomes, higher costs and unnecessary utilization.
Clinical workflow analysis can help providers implement workflow process improvement to ensure that patients are receiving the most appropriate care in the right setting at the right time to optimize outcomes, reduce waste and lower costs. Clinical workflow analysis can also help organizations better understand how processes can be more efficient, how care can be better coordinated, and how the patient experience can be enhanced to improve satisfaction.
To be most effective, clinical workflow analysis should be managed by specialists with a keen understanding of existing workflow processes as well as the practices and clinical decision support tools that can smooth the transition to value-based care. That’s where naviHealth can help.
