This IDC Perspective describes SSM Health’s journey to an enterprise strategy for sustainable value-based care. Successful and sustainable value-based care relies on an infrastructure that includes governance, management, and operations with strong technology underpinnings. SSM Health has built that infrastructure that allows them to successfully scale their value-based programs while balancing the enterprise needs for standards with the unique requirements of local and regional programs. Recognizing the critical role physicians play in success led to early involvement and adoption of necessary changes.
“This case study clearly demonstrates a framework for sustainable value-based care that aligns the organizations’ strategy with operations that scales across the enterprise,” says Cynthia Burghard, research director, IDC Health Insights.
