Clinician Network Management

The advent of value-based care and reimbursement has broad implications for how HCOs use and share data. New models of care mean that accountability for care, costs, and payment will be more focused on subsets of providers in a network of provider organizations. At any time, a given HCO will need visibility into the activities of the network of clinicians responsible for delivering care at a patient level and at a panel level. Evolving from the HIE industry, Clinician Network Management (CNM) is the set of technologies and processes that supports care delivery information needs across organizational boundaries. CNM will allow participating HCOs to effectively monitor and understand the impact of care delivery decisions on patient outcomes and on the financial health of the clinician network.

2017 Clinician Network Management Market Trends Report

In the past, messaging-based and document-centric models of health information exchange helped healthcare organizations (HCO) coordinate resources across networked communities of clinicians to enhance care delivery. This report concludes that such approaches have reached the limits of their effectiveness. The advent of value-based care is driving the need to assess risk for a population and effectively manage that risk across a distributed clinical care delivery network. This requires far richer, diverse information flows across a greater diversity of market participants. This is where the new interoperability initiatives and approaches to make better use of data discussed in this report enter the equation.
