    In the second edition of the top selling Navigating to Value-Based Outcomes by Thom Walsh, PhD, of the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, you will learn how administrative teams are adjusting to—and thriving—in the era of value-based payment models.
    Whether yours is a single-provider office or a national chain, this book will teach you to use existing tools to bridge administrative and clinical workflows to create better, more meaningful outcomes for each patient and for the practice itself by:

    • Meaningfully measuring patient outcomes
    • Evaluating processes based on both the patients’ and the practice’s needs
    • Strengthening the bottom line

    To achieve those ends, Dr. Walsh will teach you how to:

    • Capture the data that matters to patients
    • Create data governance and oversight structures
    • Employ new cost-allocation techniques
    • Evaluate the effectiveness of various transformation techniques
    • Implement shared decision-making strategies

    The value-based revolution is on, and this is your roadmap.
