Healthcare Transformation Services

New care delivery models are being widely embraced because of their potential to streamline healthcare delivery and reduce costs.

Many of these initiatives, such as accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs), require that hospitals and physicians change the way they operate as they continue to advance in lowering costs, coordinating care, making care delivery more efficient, enhancing patient engagement and implementing new reimbursement mechanisms.
