Healthcare is moving quickly and irreversibly into a new era of risk-based accountable care. This business model will leverage predictive analytics on big data as a primary conduit to adapting and eventually succeeding in value-based purchasing programs.

However, there are many other sources of data available that can be factored into analysis. If properly collected and processed, this can provide valuable insight into managing care and aligning resources in ways that improve outcomes while also achieving value metrics.

5 Ways Enterprise Scheduling Improves the “Front Door” Process

Whether each department manages its own scheduling or you have a call center, using an Enterprise Scheduling system improves the experience for all stakeholders in care delivery.
