Educate and plan
Choose an experienced partner.
As you consider the steps necessary to move your organization through reform, Optum™ can help you clarify your goals, assess your opportunities, identify gaps and partner with your leadership team to define strategies for success. You can benefit from our experience with groups that have already begun to shift towards new cost savings and quality initiatives.
There is much to be done to respond to today's shifts in the health care industry, but many organizations are uncertain about how to proceed. They believe they can learn from the stories of others that have already attempted the transition in order to identify key factors for success.
Initiating strategic relationships or selecting service providers is foundational to a strong population health approach. It's important to identify a partner who has the right experience and is well equipped to provide guidance in moving toward value-based care delivery options.
With reimbursement rates increasingly tied to clinical performance measures, hospitals and physician practices require new strategies to identify and manage the variables impacting cost. Optum can help you identify ways to curb avoidable costs, gain operational efficiencies and streamline your payment system to help save you money.
Examine risk models.
As you consider your options, Optum can help you examine how other health care systems are responding to changes in local marketplaces, how they're transforming their own business models, what progress they've seen in clinical integration and population health management and how their organizations are responding to changes in financial incentives.
Optimize clinical and financial operations.
Delivering high-quality, cost-effective health care requires a detailed understanding of utilization trends, patient outcomes and provider performance. Optum can help you identify strategies that streamline clinical workflows and improve payment streams to effectively move the performance of the entire system.
