VALUE-BASED CARE AND POPULATION HEALTH MANAGEMENT

NEQCA has a proven track record of successfully delivering value-based care by helping the practices in its Network more efficiently capture performance-based incentive payments. NEQCA’s practice operations support – including electronic health record optimization and clinical documentation improvement – have measurably helped the Network improve contract performance. 

NEQCA’s population health management initiatives – such as pharmaceutical cost management and care management support for high-risk patients – have delivered quantifiable benefits for both patients and providers since 2009. NEQCA recently made a significant investment in its population health capabilities to even more effectively aggregate, analyze and act on data at the point-of-care in ways that will positively impact patients and drive contract value.

More information about NEQCA’s value-based care and population health performance will be posted here in the months to come.
