Using Data to Manage Population Health Under Risk-Based Contracts

Using Data to Manage Population Health Under Risk-Based Contracts

A background on what you need and how to use it


This brief walks health centers through three key questions related to using data to succeed under risk-based contracts: 1) What data do I need and how do I get it?  2)  How should I analyze the data? and 3) How should I use the data to manage quality and cost? Understanding the answers to these questions assists health centers in understanding the data-related capacities needed to participate successfully in risk-bearing payment models.
