    Video transcript:

    Hi, my name is Rick Shepardson, director of optimization solutions here at Nordic, and I focus in population health and value-based care. Today I want to talk to you a little bit about some of the services that we offer, some of the challenges and struggles that we've seen in the industry, and how we help our clients. So right now the population health and value-based care space is evolving. MACRA was recently released, and many of our organizations and clients we work with are involved in ACOs and other risk-based contracts.

    Well, as we involve into the space, it's really important for IT to play a complementary role to executive leadership and operations, to help support reporting, to help customize the EHR to support these needs. But a lot of times, as these changes and as these requirements pivot, it's really important for you to be able to be agile and pivot with them.

    Here at Nordic, one of the things that we help our clients do is understand what's happening with bundled payments, understand what's happening with MACRA, and how to maximize reimbursement from areas like HCC and RAF if you have a high Medicare advantage population. We not only understand those strategies, but we also have the consultants with the technical expertise, the operational expertise, the leadership, and the project management skill set to help drive your organization forward faster than you might be able to otherwise.

    We are able to help you implement Healthy Planet or MyChart or some of the Epic application tools to best meet those needs. We're also able to leverage our best consultants to put together our standard methodologies and tools to help you implement strategic projects more efficiently. We can help you implement quality measure improvement. We've addressed seven or eight quality measures in a matter of weeks. We can help you implement a registry in 60 hours. We can help you make sure that your RAF scoring is built into a dashboard and you're targeting patients as effectively as possible.

    We take all of these solutions, and we package them together to really meet client needs. It's really not a one-size-fits-all approach here. It's really important that we understand where you're at in your journey and that we partner with you to position our consultants and our services to best meet your needs. So I'd love to talk to you about what you're working on and how we might be able to help you. So click the link below, and I hope to hear from you soon.
