The traditional definition of post-acute care (PAC) represents the legacy of a fragmented approach to healthcare that segments care into “silos” and finances institutions to care for a “slice” of the patient instead of incentivizing whole-person, coordinated care. As post-acute care is the largest driver of overall Medicare spending variation, establishing a coordinated, whole-person care network across the PAC continuum is essential for organizations to successfully operate under value-based payment models and to optimize patient outcomes. However, without transparent, market-wide data with longitudinal analytics, a comprehensive network, and relationships with hospitals, it seems like an insurmountable challenge to overcome.
Our guest this week is Ian Juliano, founder and CEO of Trella Health. Trella Health, is dedicated to creating optimal care networks that yield superior outcomes and greater efficiencies. Employing sophisticated longitudinal analytics on its massive, proprietary database, Trella enables providers and payers to compete and thrive in the new world of Value Based Care. For Ian, value-based care and PAC network optimization is a personal calling. His individual commitment provides a clear path to follow in the race to value!
