So how are these seemingly unrelated topics Cloud and Value Based Payments related? Both of these things are happening in the healthcare industry. Is one affecting the other? I would say yes.
All seem to agree that the move from fee-for-service to value based payments is a bell that has already been rung or a train that has already left the station. Any changes to legislation will only refine this trend and not reverse the course. At the center of all of this is the patient and the whole goal is to drive patient centered care that provides healthier patients at a lower cost with the best patient experience.
So how do organizations balance delivering a great patient experience with value based care? More organizations are turning to the cloud to enable a holistic view of patient information so that the best treatment can be prescribed. As more applications and health records live in the cloud, having a network that ensures great cloud based application performance with no downtime is key.
