As hospitals make the transition to value-based payments, many physicians are carrying the burden of new population health initiatives. But what if there was a way to improve patient care while eliminating physician workloads?

Hill Country Memorial Hospital has done just that. By following the Caravan Health ACO model, their health system has achieved success by empowering their nurses to lead wellness and prevention initiatives. Since implementing programs such as chronic care management and annual wellness programs, Hill Country’s population health nurse Amy Montgomery has witnessed first-hand the improvements in quality of care.

In Caravan’s model, ACO partners are achieving quality and financial success by equipping nurses with the right tools and resources to improve the health of their communities. We sat down with Amy to hear about her experiences working with Caravan Health, where she shared her favorite patient success story. Watch the video below.
