Innovative Health Delivery Initiatives
Difficult economic conditions and today’s high cost of health care
prompted CaroMont Health to partner with Premier, GE and Sg2 to develop
several new health delivery initiatives. At the end of 2010, CaroMont
will implement a bundled payment pilot, allowing local employers and payers
to combine hospital and physician fees for a full episode of care, rather
than the current fee-for-service system. CaroMont will also institute
Sg2’s INSIGHT Clinical Performance Management System to track key
metrics and identify specific areas of improvement, which will enhance
clinical integration and physician alignment across the care continuum.
CaroMont is one of 19 selected participants out of 3,000 hospitals nationwide
in the Premier ACO Implementation Collaborative. By participating in these
programs, CaroMont Health is helping shape the future of health care by
setting new standards for best practices and creating strategies to achieve
more reliable results.
