Abstract: Value-based healthcare is a healthcare delivery model in which providers are paid based on patient health outcomes. Value-based healthcare requires measuring clinical outcomes and spotting population trends while incentivizing health care providers for the delivery of better healthcare.
New Wave is building next-generation data platforms to improve health outcomes and reduce waste by transforming the wealth of data CMS currently collects, which allows the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation to fulfill its objectives of delivering value-based health care for the citizens. We leverage cloud-based tools such as Snowflake, Looker, and Databricks to provide health care providers a flexible platform to explore their patient’s data, as well as enable data scientists to perform efficient data analyses, model development, and reporting. We will demo how these tools can seamlessly work together, enabling every step of the data science process. Please join us on this journey of transformation as we attempt to modernize and innovate in healthcare.
