About this Constellation ShortList™

The U.S. spends nearly 18% of the GDP on healthcare, yet the country has a lower life expectancy and worse health outcomes than other developed countries. The healthcare industry is transitioning away from a traditional fee-for- service business model to one that incorporates value into the payment equation. The goal is to improve care quality with a lower price tag.

A value-based care initiative requires transformation across the entire organization with involvement from C- suite executives. The missing component is a population health management solution. This technology solution will aid with aligning physician incentives with quality and cost goals while optimizing care delivery. Health systems will use the solution to assist with developing the expertise associated with collecting, aggregating and disseminating data to deliver optimal clinical and financial performance.
