Description: This course is designed to provide learners with the core knowledge and skills to using the data gathered in a population health context to improve the health of that population. Developed by leaders at Johns Hopkins with direct responsibility for population care and by researchers in population health, the course starts with a general introduction to population health and then segues to the calculation of clinical risk, to the use of that calculation, and to the context of health IT.
Description: This course provides a foundational understanding of the core concepts of healthcare reform and will help learners understand the impact value-based care (VBC) will have on their day-to-day work. The course includes an explanation of the issues with value in US healthcare system, then moves into providing insight into the laws, regulations, and changes to care delivery models that will result from the VBC initiative. New payment models: ACOs, MSSPs, as well as the merit-based incentive payments system for clinics and the potential for penalties are covered in depth. This course also explains how VBC might impact many other aspects of healthcare delivery, including operations, customer service, patient satisfaction, and financial sustainability.
Description: This course is designed to educate individuals working in the healthcare industry (and those closely tied to the work of healthcare) on how the massive change known as value-based care (VBC) will affect care delivery, quality measurement and improvement and finally, how VBC affects the need to engage consumers and measure consumer satisfaction.
Description: This course will provide an overview of alternative payment model (APM) contracts by describing their general elements, covering how risk calculations can impact APMs, and describing the information required for successful contract negotiation.
