    CVHEG Discussion:

    Community benefits are the un-reimbursed goods, programs/services and resources provided by healthcare institutions that address communityidentified needs and concerns, particularly those of people who are traditionally uninsured and underserved. These programs, services or resources can bring value to your community by increasing access to healthcare and delivering a more predictable use of health resources. Recently, some states and the federal government have begun to ask the question, what constitutes a community benefit and what does not? Increasingly, hospitals may need to document and quantify their community benefits. Some states have now enacted community benefits requirements for hospitals that clearly spell out what a community benefit must be to be eligible for a tax exemption.

    HCAT Discussion:

    As reimbursements shift from volume based to value based, healthcare organizations are becoming more responsible for providing the resources necessary to meet the needs of a given population. Aligning quality of care with the appropriate level of care and services becomes pertinent to healthcare organizations’ bottom line. It is imperative for healthcare leaders to develop programs that offer underserved communities an opportunity for a healthier tomorrow. Several pioneer organizations have developed population health improvement models such as Accountable Care Organizations that force them to take responsibility for the beneficiaries they are serving. As the acuity of care increases, healthcare leaders must coordinate equitable care and properly address social determinants of health. The focus is no longer treating patients, but proactively keeping patients out of the acute healthcare setting and providing care in the community. Developing population health management into a tangible measure continues to be a challenge for all healthcare organizations across the country. How to properly reduce costs while improving the quality and access of care in communities that lack the resources and education to care for themselves and prevent acute health issues and substantive chronic disease continues to be a major hurdle in population health adoption.
