Health systems, especially accountable care organizations (ACOs) must retain patients throughout their continuum of care.

Learn how true provider alignment and its resulting financial benefits can minimize leakage and the elements you'll need in a successful alignment process.
Order sets bring together established clinical protocols, proven best practices and medical content to guide the care process. By streamlining the delivery of standardized care, they can improve patient safety, outcomes, clinician performance and regulatory compliance. As you conduct your search for the right order set solution, make sure you ask the questions that will ensure the one you select will meet your organization's long-term goals and the needs of your clinicians.
Most discussions of "data liquidity" in health IT focus on the ability to share data across the healthcare delivery system for better care coordination.

By integrating EHR and RCM systems, provider organizations can realize tremendous gains in financial performance.
