Orchestrating Value: Population in the Digital Age builds on the ideas presented in, Rethinking Return on Investment: The Challenge of Accountable Meaningful Use. While many health systems viewed Meaningful Use (MU) as a check-the-box regulatory requirement, innovative leaders understood that MU helped set the stage for the transition to value-based care and population health management. This book challenges readers to rethink their definition of the ROI of HIT, and defines the Care Management Platform – interoperability, analytics, care management and patient/consumer engagement as the next iteration beyond foundational EHRs.

This revised and updated book in a series of best sellers focused on the return on investment and value of HIT, this book will define the concept of a Value Map and its role in the Value Maturity Model. Readers will be introduced to key stages in the transition from volume to value and explore the specific opportunities to drive value out of investments in people, processes, data and technology.
