Meeting patient needs across the continuum of care

Sign up for news and updates in population health

Traditional approaches to care management, including efforts to close gaps in care, are not sufficient to deliver true value-based healthcare. Efforts are fragmented and driven by what healthcare organizations have established as appropriate, and not based on what patients need and when they need it. However, supplementing EHRs with advanced PHM technology and a ‘Scalable Care Management’ approach helps to provide the proactive and longitudinal insights health systems need to optimize scarce resources by developing a coordinated ecosystem of tools and programs to meet the care needs of multiple types of patients over time.


International Data Corporation (IDC) research has shown a need for continuous care driven by intelligence and insight that reduces the friction between payers and providers and delivers value that consumers and physicians are seeking.1 New digital platforms for value-based care management can provide the insights to guide stakeholders to the most appropriate action, the workflow and devices to manage care across the continuum of care settings and acuity, and the digital communication tools to support patients on their healthcare journey.


Join industry experts from Philips and a guest speaker from IDC in this webinar to learn:

  • How/why the healthcare industry must evolve to meet patients where they are, across financial risk and condition acuity
  • Key characteristics of a digital platform for value-based care management
  • How to plan and deploy a scalable care management strategy
  • Patient experience scenarios for patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) or diabetes
