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 implemented 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 also instituted Sg2’s INSIGHT Clinical Performance Management System to track key metrics and identify specific areas of improvement, which enhanced 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.
Preventive medicine is key to a healthy population. CaroMont Health has developed innovative prevention and wellness portals throughout our communities, which focus on individual and population health.
