It's Complicated: Why Patient Complexity is Reshaping Care Delivery — And What It Means For Hospitals

Patient complexity is one of the biggest factors reshaping the health care industry. Unfortunately, it's not top of mind for most hospitals. That's going to change rapidly as value-based principles and capitated models take hold, incentivizing hospitals to limit inappropriate health care utilization.

For starters, 20-30% of all basic non-maternity inpatient care will transition out of the hospital and into ambulatory settings in the next five to 10 years. At the same time, hospitals will need to devote an ever-increasing share of beds to caring for patients at either end of the complexity spectrum—necessitating changes to how resources are allocated, with investments in intensive care and observation platforms coming at the expense of general acute care capacity.

Basic-complexity patients will shift out of the hospital for multiple reasons: Some who never should have been admitted in the first place will have new alternatives as care models evolve; others will be transitioned to
lower-cost settings as monitoring and treatment technologies evolve and reimbursement focuses less on volume.

Currently, hospital facilities aren’t set up to cost-effectively treat basic-complexity patients, who typically use fewer resources and have shorter lengths of stay. But they are starting to explore alternative, lower-cost approaches as they transition to population health strategies and take on greater reimbursement risk. The shift has already begun,
particularly for select surgical procedures in specialties like gynecology, ophthalmology and urology. More will follow.

Please join Leslie Marshburn and Shobhika Somani from Kurt Salmon, for a webinar discussion on how and why patient complexity is reshaping care delivery, on Tuesday January 26th, 2016 at 1:00 PM Eastern in the HealthcareWebSummit event: It's Complicated: Why Patient Complexity is Reshaping Care Delivery.
Learning Objectives
Participants will be able to:
  1. Understand the five factors that contribute to patient complexity
  2. Consider how to use these factors to properly segment patients into three broad complexity-based buckets--high, moderate and basic
  3. Examine how to determine which services are ripe for transitioning out of the hospital setting
  4. Explore how complexity shifts in their region stack up against other regions
  5. Engage in interactive learning through online question submission, attendee feedback and opportunity for follow up questions, and networking with attendees, faculty and other professionals through dedicated LinkedIn group.
