Features

Post-Acute Care

Almost half of Medicare patients utilize post-acute care following a hospital discharge. The government has been gradually modifying provider reimbursements for the cost and quality of service that occurs beyond the inpatient setting, leaving health systems liable for charges outside of their premises. Premier can help create a high-value network to improve quality and reduce costs.

Planning around the post-acute care options (physical therapy, home care, skilled nursing facilities (SNF), etc.) has really empowered the clinical staff and generated great dialogue amongst the team around how to provide the best care for Avera St. Luke’s patients.

Clinically Integrated Networks (CINs)

CINs serve as the framework for most commercial and government value-based contracts and create a foundation for legal, structural and governance at clinical components of an alternative payment model (APM). Let Premier help you identify the best structure.

Valuations

As the market continues to consolidate and flex at an unprecedented rate, organizations need to ensure all parties are protected and new arrangements are equitable. Working with a certified team to deliver a fair market value analysis is essential.

I have worked with all of the big consulting firms, and they had talented people, but they never had the data that Premier has.

Care Management

An effective value-based care delivery and payment model requires clinical standardization. Variation is responsible for a significant amount of wasted U.S. healthcare spending. Managing it is key for health systems to achieve results.
