Population Health Strategy
Although they have historically been slow to change, the healthcare system in the United States has demonstrated a need for rapid transformation in response to pandemics, regulatory changes, or legislative pressures in recent years. With value-based care models becoming the new standard, incorporating population healthcare delivery models into GME programs is essential for developing the next generation of physicians. It is vital to change how we think about strategic planning and Return on Investment (ROI) by including patient outcomes, social determinants of health, and other non-financial attributes. Capturing all these inputs paints a holistic picture and allows for a more comprehensive approach as the healthcare and reimbursement landscape changes. Germane Solutions is invested in assisting organizations in making this pivotal turn in healthcare. Germane guides clients in assessing institutional processes to identify potential opportunities that align the organization’s strategic plans with population health initiatives in their GME programs.
