Cost Effective Care Models That Improve Outcomes

Host: Diane Bradley, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, CPHQ, FACHE, FACHCA, Regional Chief Clinical Officer


A variety of innovative care delivery models have been explored in the recent past and others are being developed as the health care landscape changes from a focus on inpatients to one of consumers being in the right place at the right time for the right cost with the best outcomes. Care models that affect positive change for individuals and populations seem to make more sense as greater collaboration occurs.

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Describe a care model framework that may be best for their organization.
2. Discuss 2 methods to explore developing innovative care delivery models.
3. Understand the importance of care delivery integration and how that may appear to improve cost and outcomes.
