RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise software for Medicare Advantage health plans, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, Making the Most of Payer-Provider Partnerships.
The relationship between payers and providers has, at times, been contentious, addressing the healthcare challenge from different ends of the care delivery / payment continuum. This may have worked in the past, as fee-for-service models dominated the landscape; however, the requirements of healthcare in the 21st century demand a more flexible approach. Now, new and emerging payment models necessitate greater collaboration between payers and providers to keep the patients they serve healthy and out of the hospital.
“Partnerships are becoming more and more important as the Medicare Advantage program continues to evolve,” stated Christopher P. Minton, Executive Vice President of RAM Technologies, Inc. “As value-based reimbursement models move to the forefront, and organizations are granted greater flexibility to address social determinants of health, it is becoming increasingly important for strategic collaboration between payers and providers, to manage spending and – more importantly – to drive better health outcomes.”
This report highlights ways in which payers and providers can work more closely together, aligning their interests and improving care. Industry success stories are reviewed as well as the challenges around communication, data sharing and other issues.
