hfm magazine: Rethinking Population Health Management

Why successful risk-based contracting requires provider empowerment

As the healthcare industry shifts from fee-for-service to value-based care, antiquated revenue models continue to stifle progress. Hospitals enter risk-based contracts with the intention of providing high-quality patient care, yet the bulk of their revenue still comes from treating sick patients. DignifiHealth hopes to solve these challenges by reversing the long-standing narrative that population health management isn’t possible or profitable. The company does this through its flagship product, DignifiEngage, that empowers healthcare providers to deliver first-class patient care. It provides actionable clinical intelligence and analytics designed to inspire healthcare professionals, patients and payers to achieve high-quality, cost-efficient care, resulting in improved population health.
