U.S. Accountable Care 2014 Top 10 Predictions: Collaboration, Sustainability, and Technology

LONDON, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

U.S. Accountable Care 2014 Top 10 Predictions: Collaboration, Sustainability, and Technology

This IDC Health Insights report presents our accountable care predictions for 2014. Healthcare organizations will continue to see progress toward accountable care goals during 2014 but must turn their attention toward sustainability. Early results have stemmed from harvesting low-hanging fruit like emergency room diversion and improved rate of readmission. These process measures, while important, may not result in measurable clinical improvement, which is what is required for sustainability. Understanding the drivers of health and disease will allow healthcare providers to make better treatment decisions. Taking into account the impact of nonclinical drivers such as finances, behavior patterns, living situation, and other life factors will improve outcomes.

Access to new sources of data will provide opportunities and challenges. The lack of analytics sophistication in healthcare will require organizations to look outside their current staff to gain the expertise needed to leverage and get increased value from their data.

According to Cynthia Burghard, research director, Accountable Care IT Strategies, "In addition to access to new data sources, healthcare organizations will have to continue their collaborative approach to accountable care. The ability to be successful in such a complex environment relies on domain expertise from both health plans and providers."
