Advancing Value-Based Care

Advancing Value-Based CarePatient distrust in hospitals and corporations to protect their personal data is a challenge to collecting and leveraging health data to improve care. Addressing data security concerns is key for hospitals and others who collect sensitive data.


Patient distrust in hospitals and corporations to protect their data poses a challenge to collecting and leveraging health data to improve care. Addressing data security concerns is crucial for hospitals and others who collect sensitive data.

Advancing value-based care is not just a trend but a critical necessity for creating a more equitable and high-performing healthcare system. This approach promises to deliver higher-quality care at a lower cost, benefiting the public and private sectors. Expanding fully accountable care models allows more patients to receive treatment in their preferred settings, significantly improving healthcare outcomes. Value-based care emphasizes patient outcomes over service volume, encouraging healthcare providers to focus on delivering effective and efficient care.

"We all want to protect our patients and our patients' data"




Protecting our patients and their data is paramount in this evolving landscape. While speaking at the ViVE session "Delivering Value-Based Care at Scale,"  President and CEO of Huntington Health, Lori J. Morgan, emphasized, "We all want to protect our patients and our patients' data." This is a central concern for all healthcare innovators and leaders. The recent Optum data breach is a stark reminder of the vulnerabilities inherent in our interconnected healthcare systems. This incident compels us to reevaluate our partnerships and the security measures we have in place. In the long term, it necessitates a more cautious approach to selecting partners, with IT security becoming a crucial component of contractual agreements. Larger companies often have more sophisticated security infrastructures, which creates challenges for smaller vendors who lack the resources and expertise to meet these heightened security demands. As the complexity and frequency of cyber threats increase, ensuring robust data security measures will be essential to maintaining patient trust and safeguarding sensitive information.

Approximately 30% of the world's data volume is generated by the healthcare industry, with a significant portion coming from patients through various means such as wearables, mobile apps, and patient-reported outcomes. This patient-generated data has emerged as a transformative predictor of health outcomes, offering unprecedented insights into individual health patterns and behaviors. However, harnessing, utilizing, and ensuring the HIPAA compliance of this ever-expanding resource are becoming increasingly entangled.




Health organizations are now setting their sights on creating a centralized data strategy capable of efficiently housing and disseminating this information. The deep, diverse data from patient-generated sources offers the most holistic view of our health journeys. Wearables and mobile health applications continuously collect data on vital signs, physical activity, sleep patterns, and other health metrics, providing real-time insights that were previously unattainable. Patient-reported outcomes add another layer of valuable information, capturing subjective aspects of health and treatment effects directly from the patient's perspective.

Integrating and analyzing this information seamlessly can empower clinicians, researchers, and healthcare providers to deliver more targeted and effective care. The potential for precision healthcare becomes increasingly attainable when treatments and interventions are tailored to the individual's unique health profile. This approach enhances patient care, improves overall health outcomes, and reduces costs by preventing complications and managing chronic conditions more effectively.

Moreover, sharing such data can lead to profound improvements in health outcomes and patient care. Encouraging patients to share their data with appropriate safeguards and privacy protections can enrich the collective understanding of health and disease. This collaborative approach fosters a more inclusive and comprehensive healthcare system where data-driven insights drive continuous improvement and innovation.

Building trust in healthcare data security is paramount. In today's digital age, healthcare organizations increasingly rely on technology to manage patient information, streamline operations, and deliver care. However, this reliance on digital systems makes healthcare providers vulnerable to cyber threats, which can compromise sensitive patient data and disrupt essential services. Trust in healthcare cybersecurity is crucial to protecting patient information, maintaining the integrity of healthcare systems, and ensuring continuous, high-quality care delivery.
