Underserved Allies: Community Resources in the Fight Against COVID

Healthcare fights a two-front war against COVID-19, yet only one of the two fronts has been the beneficiary of widespread media attention.

Does a PHM Strategy Give Leg-up During COVID19?

As the #COVID19 pandemic storms across the U.S., a thought I’ve been pondering is: Will there be a measurable difference in ability to respond by those healthcare systems that have aggressively moved forward with adopting a population health management (PHM) strategy and supporting technology coupled with value-based care (VBC) models? ...

The Approaching #COVID19 Tsunami – Our Response

Several weeks ago we were preparing for HIMSS’20 – something the entire Chilmark Research team attends every year. HIMSS'20 was cancelled. Today, we are completely virtual.

Take a Break From Worrying About COVID-19. We Have New Rules!

New rules from CMS and ONC hold few surprises for devotees of the regulatory process – a niche crowd, admittedly. Both agencies thoroughly communicated and responded to the industry at every step.

The Journey to PHM Value

The population health management (PHM) journey for provider organizations is not paved in gold, nor silver – it’s actually not paved at all – more of a dirt path with a steep climb. It is far from smooth and the ability to show demonstrable return on investment remains elusive. This ...

Hotspotting Revisited

Several years ago we highlighted the analytics work behind the Camden Healthcare Coalition’s hotspotting methodology used to identify super utilizers in the local health system so that appropriate interventions could be provided to decrease unnecessary utilization.

Will the New Interoperability Rules Tame or Be Tamed by Fees?

The healthcare exchange status quo got a boost last week in a legal victory for Ciox Health.
