86_How TriHealth is Getting Value-Based Care “Right” with CEO Mark Clement

Hosted by Quint Studer with special guest Mark Clement

On this episode of The Healthcare Plus Podcast, host Quint Studer is joined by TriHealth CEO, Mark Clement. In 2015, TriHealth’s board, management team, and physician team embraced a bold vision to “get healthcare right” through an increased focus on population health and value-based care. Mark and his teams are committed to improving the health of the entire community, even for those individuals that may never receive care in a TriHealth hospital. Through their efforts and community partnerships, TriHealth’s patient population today is objectively healthier – chronic conditions are better managed, screening and early detection occurs more consistently, and the total cost of care is more affordable.

In their conversation, Quint and Mark discuss:

  • TriHealth’s definition of value-based care
  • How TriHealth included physicians in the shift towards value-based care and how they’re shaping a shared vision of the organization’s future
  • How TriHealth has worked to form equitable, collaborative partnerships with payers to further their mission of delivering value-based care
