“We’re all in this together,” Dudley said in a recent member-exclusive webinar for MGMA, “Succeed as a Clinically Integrated Network in Valued-Based Care” With patients, providers and payers working together, value-based arrangements are the stepping stone to acknowledging “that we can't just spend our way to increased health [quality] in the United States.”
Dudley noted that the purpose of the clinically integrated network (CIN) is drive better quality while lowering costs, which hopefully results in wringing out waste and inefficiency. But that is “pretty much impossible to do if you don't also add the clinicians’ experience to the set of aims.
“We want to share that savings with the clinicians who are doing the work,” he added.
