Now the Numbers Work

Sooner or later, you know you’ll have to make the transition to value-based care. Everyone will. You may have already tried it. If not, you know someone who has. And you’ve seen what happens. That’s the very reason you keep putting this off. But since value-based care is not going to go away, you’ve got to figure this out, or you’re going to be cutting checks to CMS once a year for the rest of your tenure. In theory, value-based care is a wonderful thing. It’s just that nobody knows how to make it work for hospitals with your kind of financials, demographics, quality challenges, and so on. And that’s why there’s Caravan Health. With Caravan, now the numbers work.
