Preventive Care Investments Help Healthcare Payors Reduce Costs and Improve Quality of Care
With the rise in healthcare spending, payors are evaluating different methodologies to contain costs and improve care delivery. Major strategic goals for payors include incorporating Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) in policy calculation, shifting to a value-based care model with price transparency, and adhering to interoperability laws. However, the most critical goal is to invest in preventive care and facilitate the shift from reactive to proactive care.
