The challenge: overcoming an unsustainable healthcare system

Patients, providers, payors – we all want healthcare delivery to be the best it can possibly be. However, the U.S. healthcare ecosystem is becoming unsustainable with the pressures of escalating costs, an aging population, care delivery disruption and increased regulatory demands.

With appropriate value-based care (VBC) strategies, your organization can make operational changes to enhance quality, become more patient-centered, improve provider satisfaction and impact financial outcomes to help support a more sustainable, health-first model.

At Cerner, we collaborate with organizations with the aim to move the healthcare ecosystem away from siloed processes, cumbersome data and misaligned incentives to one where information, people and processes are connected.

The solution: enhancing quality care while strengthening market share

By enabling a connected healthcare ecosystem, your organization can accelerate its VBC efforts while still supporting current fee-for-service business. Wherever you are on the VBC journey, our technologies connect information across venues of care to provide actionable insights, with the goal to improve clinician decision-making and enhance the patient experience. From an operational perspective, we aim to help you grow and protect market share, identify care gaps, meet quality measures and optimize healthcare spend.

As an innovation center for VBC, Cerner develops offerings to generate data and insights, empower clinicians and provide operational expertise to help support your VBC strategies:
