Most healthcare workers feel patient complexity has gone through the roof, along with the expectation of managing the costs these patients incur. As we move to value-based care, that cost burden will shift to the providers and hospitals. Using a fairly simple IT solution, combined with a dedicated team, Mercy Health has significantly decreased the cost of caring for this population, in a manner scalable to most institutions. Additionally, this process has led to increased provider satisfaction with a reduction in cognitive burden, without damaging patient satisfaction.
