Value-Based Care

Quality patient care is at the core of all we do. Delivering value-based care means providing the best quality patient care with regards to the cost of that care through data-driven analysis and service improvement. The value-based care initiative provides resources which assist cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation professionals to:

  • Assign accountability
  • Target efficiencies
  • Strategize operational transformation
  • Restructure the care delivery model
  • Implement effective technology solutions in management
  • Ultimately improve the patient and practitioner experience
